Use Your Stash--Lawn Fawn Cuteness!

Good morning, friends!  Amy Copeland here guest designing for the blog today.  For 2021, I have challenged myself to use ALL new/unused stamps/dies at least once, so this card was created with some older product that is either new-to-me or that I just haven't used yet.  I also have a serious lack of birthday cards in my stash, so I'm trying to create birthday cards to replenish my stock ASAP.

I started out by cutting an almost A2-sized panel out of white heavyweight cardstock (it measures approximately 4 x 5 1/4").  I taped the 
Bubble Burst die from Memory Box onto my cardstock using washi tape and then ran it through my die cut machine.  I then used the same die to run through lot of colors of Lawn Fawn Card Stock (I used Cilantro, Sticky Note, Raspberry, Peacock, Pixie Dust glitter cardstock, Mermaid, No 2 Pencil, Noble Fir, and Ballet Slipper)--many of these are in stock at Butterfly Reflections, Ink's shop and if it's out of stock, click Put Me On the Waiting List and you will be emailed when it's restocked.

I glued each individual dot on top of the white dots that were left there when I ran the die through the first time on the white cardstock panel (I put regular tape all over the back of my panel to hold the white dots in place) using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive --a Pick Up Tool and/or tweezers are very helpful for getting the teensy dots where you want them to go!

I then stamped the little mouse/paper from Lawn Fawn's Love Poems stamp set (which I have had ever since it was released for Valentine's Day of 2020!) with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink onto a scrap of the same heavy weight white cardstock, colored him in with Warm Grey Copic Markers, stamped the sentiment from Love Poems with Peacock ink, and used the Coordinating Die Set to cut him out.  I used Foam Squares to pop him up over the intersecting bubble bursts.

The final step was cutting an A2-sized panel from Lawn Fawn Peacock cardstock, gluing my white card panel on top, then adhering it to an A2-sized card base.  I'm happy with the way this clean-and-simple card turned out and I'm SO happy to use two more new and/or unused products in my stash for the first time!  :)  

PS--I used the leftover circles from all of the colorful cardstocks in a shaker card as shaker bits behind the BIG word using the Big Birthday Wishes die from My Favorite Things (which looks to be currently out of stock, but if you click "Put Me On the Waiting List," you will get an email when it's back in stock!)

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

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
