"Snail mail for you" a cute set of cards feat.Lawn Fawn!


Hi there!
It's franci (fridayfinally) here today with a cute set of cards i made with one of my favourite stamp set ever by Lawn Lawn: Gleeful Gardens!
Here's what i created...


Those little snails are too cute and i love they carry happy mails!!
I decided to create a little set of cards: similar layouts, same stamp set.. but different scenes and colors!
Let's get into the first card...


I'm dreaming about spring days with the sun shining.. yeah..because here in Milan these are super rainy days.. only grey clouds in the sky! So let's put some happiness in the cards!! ahah!! :)
First i stamped all my images on a piece of white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then i colored them with my copics and i die cut them with their coordinate dies. I love coordinate dies.. hope i'll have coordinate dies for all of my stamp set one day!! ahah! :)
I also die cut some Stitched Rectangles from a piece of white cardstock and i sponged some distress ink colors.. for this card i used the Spiced Marmelade shade.
Finally i glued all my pieces down and stamped my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The little heart i added ( oh and here i forgot to color it?! opss!) is from the Winter Alpaca set, i also stamped it on the special mail the snail is carrying, it fits perfectly and it's soo adorable, i love it! A little heart is like a little bow..it makes difference!! ahah! :)
Here's another card.. it's all about pink!!


Did you ever see all those videos on youtube full of dogs happy to roll in a pile of leaves.. yeah.. that was my inspiration! ihih! Who isn't happy to roll in a pile of happy mails?! :)
Here i used some Picked Raspberry distress ink for my background.
And here's the final card..


Lot's of mushrooms in this one! Here i used the Shabby Shutters shade of distress ink and i love how it turned out! 
This is the longest post ever!! ahah! But hey.. i'm so happy to be here!ihih! :)
Now i think i'm ready to fall in love with all new Lawn Fawn stamp sets! Did you see some intro-videos?.. I want them all!! They are soo cute!! I think we all are going to begin shopaholic this week! ahah! :)
Hope you like my cards and thank you so much for stopping by! 
kisses :)

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…

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 …

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&#…
