I'd Be Lost Without You Anniversary Card

Hey friends! Britney here with a card featuring several Lawn Fawn products (Car CrittersHappy Village, Oliver’s Stitched ABCs, Happy, Happy, Happy, and Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait). My husband and I just celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary at the end of July and I thought this card was very fitting to celebrate.

If you’ve ever read any of my previous blog posts before, you know I like to start with my background first. I started by cutting four panels using the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait out of Chili Pepper card stock. I cut out the center cross lines from each and glued them all together using liquid adhesive. On a plain white panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock, I masked off a line to ink up my sky. I used Lawn Fawn Fish Tank and Blue Jay inks. Once that was done, I spritzed some of the Avery Elle Clear Shimmer Spray to the background. I used Lawn Fawn Manatee and Soot inks to ink up my road and Cilantro and Freshly Cut Grass inks for the grass. 

I stamped my images from Car Critters and Happy Village with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black Ink, colored my images with Copic Markers, and cut them out using the coordinating dies. To add the effect of glass in the car, I put a piece of acetate behind the car and in front of the bears riding in the car. I also used some Glossy Accents on the headlights. I finished off my images by adding some highlights with a white gel pen. I stamped the birds in the background using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I glued all of my images directly to the card base. I white heat embossed the sentiment from Car Critters. For the “Lost” portion of the sentiment, I die cut each letter four times using Oliver’s Stitched ABCs for some nice depth and dimension. 

For the inside of my card, I stamped images from Car Critters and the sentiment from Happy, Happy, Happy using Lawn Fawn Chili Pepper ink to match the card stock on the front of my card. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it. Have a wonderful day!

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each! I used my  We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool  for the first time and loved it! I cut my own  Tim Holtz watercolor paper  to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by  Lawn Fawn Hello Baby  with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral  Distress Inks  and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron  Distress Inks .  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things  Snuggle Bunnies  for the girl and Magical Dragons for th

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog .  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!   Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards.  What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.     For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.   I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks w

Hey, hey BRI friends!  We're hopping today to celebrate the 4th Birthday of Altenew , one of our favorite stamping companies!  You should have arrived here from the Altenew blog , and we're glad you're here to share the excitement! There are prizes and inspiration and it's going to be FUN! With you today, is Norine from The Velvet Lemon  creating for Butterfly Reflections Ink  and I have some projects to share today, that I made using some recently released Altenew products .   First up, are these two cards created with the Mega Succulent stamp set .   I stamped the image onto water color paper using the MISTI , then turned on the music and sat and colored.   I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils so I could more easily control where the color would sit and then painted with a water brush .  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to ensure that the ink wouldn't smudge, then tore the vel
