Love Card--New Lawn Fawn!


Good morning, everyone! Amy Copeland here again with a love-themed card using some adorable new products from the Summer 2018 release by Lawn Fawn.  I used the stamp set called You Are Sublime to stamp out all of the cute images using Lawn Fawn's Jet Black ink onto 110 lb smooth white card stock.  I actually took my Copic markers and my pre-stamped card stock with me "on the road" to my husband's shop and colored them while he was billing out some work--it was a nice way to spend some time with him while also getting to do something crafty.  :)



When I got home, I used the coordinating You Are Sublime dies to cut out all of my images--I just love how they look with the even white border all around the images.  From there, it was a pretty simple process.  I used my Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to give all of my images some sparkle and shine.  I cut a panel of Lawn Fawn Mermaid card stock with a stitched rectangle die (These and these are great options).  I then cut a panel of Lawn Fawn's Paper Bag card stock with the same stitched rectangle die and used the Stitched Hillside Borders dies by Lawn Fawn to create some "sandy hills" for the bottom of my card. I arranged my images on the card until I was happy with the layout.  I took a picture with my phone so I would remember where I put everything.  :) 




I used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment directly onto the card front using Lawn Fawn's Mermaid Ink, then glued everything down with Mono Multi Liquid Glue.  I popped up my bottom sandy hillside with Scotch Foam Tape to give the card a little extra dimension.




The final touch was a layer of Glossy Accents on various elements of the card--I used it on all of the eyes, the windows and all the gray areas on the submarine, the hearts, the bubbles, some of the greenery, and on the goggles, flippers, belt, and tank/tubing on the scuba diver.  I then mounted the panel on a top-folding A2 sized card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).  Thanks for joining me today--see you next Thursday.  :)

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&#…
