Oh Gnome

 Hello crafty friends and happy Saturday!  I hope you all have fun things planned for the weekend ahead.  This is Crystal Komara here, one of the "old," though I much prefer the term original ; ) DT members for Butterfly Reflections, Ink!   I'm always happy to come back and share with you what I'm creating.  

Today I have a slimline card featuring all of the fun Oh Gnome characters from Lawn Fawn.  I know, I know, it's not part of the super cool new Lawn Fawn release, but I have been working really hard at using some of the many, many stamps that I own that haven't been used and this set is one of them.  Plus, it's always great to see some of the old things become new again!  This Lawn Fawn Mushroom House is still one of my favorites.  I've been dying to make a Smurf themed card using this fun die set too!!

Card Details: 

This base of this slimline card (8 1/2" x 3 1/2") was made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. This is my go-to white cardstock for e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!  I created the background by cutting a piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes cardstock.  I die cut the mushroom house from white cardstock, Textured Canvas and Ripe Raspberry cardstock. I assembled the mushroom house and adhered it to the center of the card.  I cut some of the grass pieces also uses the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes cardstock using the Grass Border Honey Cuts by Honey Bee Stamps.  I stamped all of the images on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored the images with Copic markers and added highlights to each image using a white gelly roll pen.  I adhered all the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added height.  Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to all the images for sparkle. 

Here is the Oh Gnome stamp set and coordinating Oh Gnome Lawn Cuts from Lawn Fawn (available through Butterfly Reflections, Ink):

The Lawn Fawn Mushroom House really completes this card: 

I hope you have enjoyed this slimline card!  You can always follow me for more creativity on my Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and blog

Have a wonderfully creative 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

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
