Cute Bookmarks with Butterfly Kisses

Hi everyone! It's Peggy here and today I am sharing two cute bookmarks with images from the Lawn Fawn Butterfly Kisses and Den Sweet Den stamp sets.

I am an avid reader and find myself in need of new bookmarks all the time. They are also fun as a small gift or to accompany a book you are gifting to a friend. I was thrilled with the release of the Den Sweet Den stamp set because it is currently the only Lawn Fawn set featuring books. 


You can make these bookmarks in any size you like. I used 12x12 paper, but you can also use a 6x6 paper pad. I used the Into the Woods remix paper pack. I cut the patterned paper and some white cardstock with my guillotine trimmer.

First I used Violet's ABCs to spell out the bookish quotes. I cut the white cardstock just under the quote. You can use any type of die you like for this. I used a speechbubble die and a cloud die. Behind the small opening I stuck a different piece of patterned paper and distressed the upper edge of the bottom panel using Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass.

I stamped the images using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and cut with the coordinating dies. The stacks of books on the fox bookmark were stamped directly onto the panel. Because of the straight lines no masking was necessary. I colored using my copic markers. For the floor I used a copic multiliner to draw a line and freehanded the floor with copics. i finished the card with some glossy accents and a white jelly roll pen.

Long distance hugs!

Peggy

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

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

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

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
