Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest

Hello, all! I hope you won't be too angry that I'm bringing you another Lawn Fawn card today! I promise that next time I'll use another company...but I had this idea and I couldn't let it go! You'll have to tell me what you think! And remember that you can get the items I've used on this card in the Butterfly Reflections, Inc Shop!

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons because I just love the colors! Deep oranges, yellows, and reds are just gorgeous!

I started with THIS Lawn Fawn stamp set. I stamped the scarecrow with THIS ink and heat set it so that I could do some water coloring with Distress Inks. I used THIS red, THIS blue, THIS orange, THIS yellow, and some Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs. While I had my Versafine black ink out I stamped my sentiment on to a strip of cardstock and distressed the paper with Antique Linen after cutting some banner ends. THESE dies are available for cutting out the scarecrow.

Next, I used THIS ink to stamp my pumpkins and sunflowers all over my watercolor card base. I sprinkled on some copper embossing powder (although it's not what I used, THIS powder is quite similar). I heat set the powder and did some more Distress Ink water coloring. I used the same orange and yellow as before (THIS and THIS). The brown is Gathered Twigs. 

I popped up the scarecrow and the sentiment banner with some foam tape. You could definitely add some shimmer to this card, but I decided against it. I struggle with cards for guys and I think this is one I could send to some of my male friends! 

Again, don't forget to visit the SHOP for the products I've used on this card! I'll see you again soon!

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
