Little dinosaur jar with Peter

Good day everyone! It's Peter here. I've made another inspiration card for you all! I've been a fan of the Lawn Fawn jar from the How You Bean? set for a long time now! At one point, I kept using it on every card I made, haha.
Since it has been a while that I made a card with it, I thought it would be fun using it again!

Normally I don't mix images from different brands. It's a personal choice, it bothers me that things like line thickness don't match. But I still went for it with this card! I really wanted to put one of the tiny dinosaurs from the Little Dino Agenda set from Mama Elephant inside of the jar and surround the jar with some jungle goodness. But I don't have anything suitable from Mama Elephant for that, so since the jar is already from Lawn Fawn I figured I should just go for some Lawn Fawn.

Since everything inside the jar is from Mama Elephant and everything on the outside is from Lawn Fawn, I think it works really well!
Next to the tiny dinosaur, I used the palm trees from the Me and My Dinosaur set to accompany the dinosaur in the jar.

For the outside, I used the big palm trees from Critters From The Past and the two smallest sized leaves are also from that set.
Out of Critters In The Jungle I used the other leaves and bush. The smaller palm tree is from Life Is Good.

After I colored everything it was time to die cut it all. I die cut the jar with the matching die. To cut out the inside, I used the How You Bean? Shaker Add-on. By doing it this way, you won't have the thick outside border, which you don't need since it's not a shaker. I think it suits the card better this way.

I glued some acetate to the back that I cut with the normal matching die so it will fit perfectly. It gives the illusion it really is a see through jar.

The background is made out of kraft paper that I cut with the largest die from the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. The cloudy background is cut with one die smaller, out of watercolor paper.
I used the stamps I used for all the jungle decorations to stamp on the kraft paper with Distress Oxide Ground Espresso.

The cloudy background is made with the Cloudy Stencil from Lawn Fawn. I used Distress Oxide Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose. I switched colors every 'main row' and between those rows I mixed the oxides on my stencil to make a row in between.

To finish it off, I blended some Seedless Preserves all around the edge. I also splattered the background with some bright pink and white paint. I also used some drops of water to distress it a little.
After that I used my Misti to stamp on the sentiment 'You're rawrsome!' that I got out of the RAWRSOME set with Seedless Preserves as well.

For the assembly of the card, I first glued everything to the the jar. I also glued a leaf and bush to the back of the cloudy background. Then I used some thin foam tape to adhere the cloudy background to the kraft paper background that I already glued down on a card base. I also used thin foam tape to glue the whole jar piece to the card. And with that, the card is done!

I never forgot that I love the Lawn Fawn jar, but this card made me rediscover it for sure so I will be having a lot of fun again with the jar.

I hope you have a great rest of the week filled with a lot of crafty time.

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

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
