Hello friends!! Welcome! It's Leeds here today and I'm so excited to share a fun pop-up birthday card featuring a lot of Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn goodies. Here are the steps: 

Step 1: Stamp all the images from Mama Elephant Party Animals,  Me and My DragonBirthday Bash and Piñata Party stamp set  using Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.
Step 2:  Color each image with Copic markers. I also added a few highlights using white gel pen.
Step 3: Cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card stock and score it on the 4 1/4" to use as a base card.
Step 4: Cut a 4 1/4'" x 5 1/2" card stock and create the background using Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw and Tattered Rose.

Step 6: Stamp the sentiment from Lawn Fawn Baked With Love Stamp Set on a  red card stock using clear embossing ink pad and white embossing powder. 
Step 7: Assemble the card and adhere it to the base card. (this is for the outside of the card)
Step 8: For inside of the card, use Lawn Fawn Pivot Pop-Up dies and assemble it (from this pivot pop up dies, you get the pop up mechanism and accordion banner). Place Heffy Doodle Head in The Clouds stencil on the accordion banner from the Pivot Pop up and apply Distress Oxide Spun Sugar. 
Step 9: Cut a white card stock using Lawn Fawn Hillside Border and ink blended it with Distress Oxide Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn
Step 10: Cut two of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card stock and create the background using Heffy Doodle Head in The Clouds stencil and Distress Oxide Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac.

Step 11: Adhere two card stock from step 10 to the base card and also adhere the pop up mechanism and the accordion banner using double sided tape.  Voila! The pop up birthday card is done!
Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you enjoyed and feel inspired by the card I've shared with you today. Wishing you 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
