Lawn Fawn "Merry and Bright"

Hi everyone, Joann here bringing you some Christmas! Over the weekend I went to a few crafting stores and I was totally overwhelmed with all the Christmas stuff. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE Christmas, but it was just a scaring reminder on how fast this year has gone and Christmas is literally around the corner.

So, I created a Christmas card for you today.

I purchased a few items from the new Lawn Fawn release and I'm absolutely loving everything! I cut a rectangle from some Tim Hotlz Watercolor Paper with the larger die from the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables die set and added some Tim Holtz distress inks ( tumbled glass, salty ocean, and dusty concord) and sprayed some water for my night sky. I took the Snow Day stamp set and stamped a few of the smaller images for falling snow and embossed my sentiment with some Zing Silver Glitter Embossing Powder.

My bunnies and trees are also from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day stamp set. I used some copic markers to color my bunnies and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. As for my trees I used Avery Elle Pigment inks (celery and lemon grass). The snow hills were cut using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders and added some Sparkling Ice Embossing Powder to add extra sparkle.

For a soft tone on tone look, I took a small striped border from the MME The Sweetest Thing Tangerine "Hello" Stamp Set, and stamped the image with some Versa Mark Ink. I then added my images with some foam adhesive and glued my center piece to some Neenah Solar Kraft Card Stock.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by the store and stock up on some new Lawn Fawn items!

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
