Friends Warm the Heart with Audrey!

Hi there!  Audrey here!  Today I have a card to share with you that uses one of my favorite older Lawn Fawn stamp sets along with the new release.  That's one of the things I love most about Lawn Fawn... all of their stamp sets coordinate together perfectly, and you can mix and match them and really stretch your stamps!

I started off by diecutting a piece of white card stock with the largest stitched rectangle in the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles die set.  Using Tumbled Glass distress ink, I stamped a snowy background using the Snowy Backdrops stamps set and some larger snowflakes from the Making Frosty Friends stamp set.  I cut two hills from white cardstock using the Stitched Hillside dies.  Then to create my scene, I stamped colored and fussy cut the snowman from Making Frosty Friends and the adorable little penguins and their snowballs from the Toboggan Together stamp set. I used some of the new Let's Polka in the Dark 6x6 paper pad to paper piece the snowman's scarf, and I used the tiny hat from the Critters in the Arctic to dress up the penguins.  They fit perfectly!  I put my scene together adhering some pieces flat and popping some up with foam tape for extra dimension, and then adhered my panel to a red card base.  I finished things off with a twine bow using Lawn Fawn's Peppermint Lawn Trimmings.  I also added some clear iridescent sequins that I sorted out of the Lucy's Cards Lily White sequin mix.  They are hard to see in the photograph, but add such a fun finishing touch in person!


I hope you like my card! If you'd like to check out the newest Lawn Fawn collection or stock up on some old favorites, you can find them all in the store right here!

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 will work the same.  It&#…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …
