Wishing you lots of happy!

Hi crafty friends! Beata June here! I'm so excited to be back on the blog today sharing this "Happy" Lawn Fawn slimline card. 

Here are the supplies I used for this card:
Lawn Fawn Bubbles of Joy stamp set (coordinating die available here)
Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubble Sentiments stamp set (coordinating die available here)
Lawn Fawn Coaster Critters stamp set (coordinating die available here)
Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie stamp set 

First, I stamped out the tiny critters from the Lawn Fawn Coaster Critters stamp set and the large elephant from the Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie stamp set, cut them out and colored them with copics. (The new flip flop version of this elephant stamp is available here.) I wanted each of the critters to hold a different colored balloon with all the colors of the rainbow so I stamped out 7 balloons from the Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie stamp set, cut them out and colored them in rainbow colors with copic markers. 

Next, I stamped the "happy" sentiment and bubbles from the Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubble Sentiments stamp set, cut them out and colored them to match my rainbow colored balloons. Then I stamped and cut out the baby mouse from the Lawn Fawn Bubbles of Joy stamp set and two bubble wands from the Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubble Sentiments stamp set, and colored them with copics.

To make my background, I blended Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink onto my small slimline panel for the sky.  I cut out the grass from white cardstock using the long grass die from the My Favorite Things Pop-Up Wiper Card Components Die-namics set, blended the grass with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink and the top edge of the grass with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Ink, glued the grass to my blended sky background panel, and splattered everything with water and paint.  Then I glued my colored images onto the card panel with a Lawn Fawn glue tube.  

I cut out three larger slimline panels from blue, purple and white cardstock to pull together all the colors from my colored images, and glued the panels together with my Lawn Fawn glue tube.  Then I glued the top card panel with my critters onto the rest of my mounted slimline panels.

To finish my card, I added white highlights to my colored images using a Sakura white glaze jelly roll pen.

Here is another look at my finished "Happy" slimline card:

Thanks for following along to learn how I made this happy slimline card! Wishing you all lots of happy!

Crafty hugs,

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
