Love You Tons

Hi there!  It's Lorraine (Created by Lorraine) sharing my last card as part of Butterfly Reflections Ink's Design Team.  Though I am sad to leave, I am incredibly thankful to Vanessa for giving me such an amazing opportunity to grow as a crafter and share my work.  What a great experience!  As a small token of my gratitude, I packed a whole lot of love into this project...

To make this card, I first stamped, colored (with copics) and die cut the images using a number of Lawn Fawn products, including Love You Tons stamps and dies for the elephants and sentiment; Year Four stamp and die for the balloon.

I also used Lawn Fawn lawn cuts, Say Cheese, to make the picture frame.  I then die cut the sun and clouds from Lawn Fawn patterned paper, using the Spring Showers lawn cuts.

Then I assembled the shaker card.  I adhered clear acetate to the picture frame with glue, then adhered narrow strips of foam adhesive to the back.  I then cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the polaroid frame and put some sequins on top of it.  Then I adhered the picture frame on top of the patterned paper to create the shaker element.

To finish up my card, I stamped the sentiment to the card base and used strong tape to adhere the shaker element to the card base.  Lastly, I completed the design by adhering the die cuts with glue or foam tape.

Thank you for coming by and thank you -- Vanessa and the BRI fam -- for your support.  It really has been a honor to be part of the BRI team.  As the card says, love you tons!

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

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
