Clearly Besotted Pop-Up Card

 Hello, Friends! Allison here, and I'm so happy to be back on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog. So, unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past month, you surely have seen the new Platform Pop-Up die set from Lawn Fawn. Right??! Well, I just got it recently, and I'm sharing my second make with it right here. By the way, Butterfly Reflections, Ink is offering 15% off all Lawn Fawn products through tomorrow, April 11th! Woohoo! Use code LFHBD15 in the online shop

My card features the adorable Bake Off stamp set from Clearly Besotted. And, there are a lot of other little additions. My first step was coloring all of these adorable critters and kitchen elements with my Copic markers. The featured baked good is the cupcake from the Mice Day to Celebrate stamp set from My Favorite Things. I also used the chair, stool and bunting flags from that set. 

Other details I added include the shaker bottle and butter stamps from Lawn Fawn's Baked With Love stamp set, and the can of vanilla frosting from Lawn Fawn's Sprinkled With Joy set. All of these elements are so cute, but my favorite is that cracked egg on the floor - that is part of the Clearly Besotted set. 

All of the sentiments, including the "happy" banner, come from a little stamp set from Clearly Besotted called "Piping Up." I must have received the last one of these from Vanessa because it's no longer in the shop. Sorry. BUT, if you look at any of the Clearly Besotted stamp sets, they're always full of cute little sentiments. I cut out the little sentiments with speech bubble dies from the Let's Chat die set from Mama Elephant.  I fussy cut around the "happy" sentiment after white heat embossing it on blue paper.

Time to assemble the platform! I first stamped some white card stock with the Thick and Thin Background stamp from My Favorite Things. This is what I cut the main platform pieces from. I did also cut part of the platform die from some wood grain patterned paper from Lawn Fawn - that is what you see on the "floor." Assembly of the platform is really easy - Lawn Fawn has tons of videos on YouTube showing how to do it. I adhered all of my cute elements to the three tabs of the platform. For the bunting flags and the "happy banner," I hung them from two birch trees that are part of a die set from My Favorite Things. I have the older version of this exact set, but I'm thinking both may be retired. Vanessa still has the solid version in her shop. There are so many birch tree dies from other companies that she carries, too! I attached the little speech bubbles to some heavy acetate, so they look like they're floating. I finished the card by tying some jute twine around the platform.

The most fun part of this card is how it folds up, fits into an envelope, and then POP! The recipient gets an amazing surprise! I hope this card put a smile on your face today. Thanks for joining us.

Wishing you a crafty 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
