Hap-Pea Lawn Fawn Release Day!

Happy Thursday crafty friends, Ashley D. here!  The day has finally come, it’s Lawn Fawn Spring 2019 release day!  Let stampers everywhere rejoice!  This collection is so cute, and is available for shipment today.  So of course, I just had to make a card including one of the new sets I happen to acquire a little early at Creativation last month, and it sure does make me Hap-Pea (pun intended!).  This set it so versatile and unique, and is available now at Butterfly Reflections Ink.  

To begin this card I stamped several peapods from the new Lawn Fawn Be Hap-Pea set on a square piece of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic markers (YG03. YG11, YG63, G82).  I then added vines from Lawn Fawn Be Hap-Pea and Pick of the Patch sets in green Memento Bamboo Leaves ink as well as adding a few custom vines using the kite strings from Lawn Fawn Yay, Kites! set.  I then stamped leaves from the Be Hap-Pea set onto the vines and colored them in with Copic markers in the same green colors.  I then cut the background out with a stitched square die (3.25”).  

To make the little pea family I stamped two peas, the faces, and the open peapod, from the Hap-Pea set on a piece of scrap white cardstock and colored them again in the same green Copic colors, adding a bit of E93 for the cheeks, and cut them out.  I didn’t have the coordinating dies, but they are available now.  For the baby pea, I used the smiley face from the A Birdie Told Me set, and the bow (Y02, Y08) from A Bun in the Oven, cutting it out with the coordinating die.  I tucked the peas into the open peapod by using a craft knife to make a slit in the pod.  The Be Hap-Pea coordinating dies do come with this option.  I added two vines from Pick of the Patch, cut out with the coordinating dies, to the top of the pod.  I secured the pea family to the square background with foam adhesive along with several flowers from the Lawn Fawn Booyah set, colored with Copic markers (Y02, E41), and cut with the coordinating die.  

I added little highlights to the colored images with a white Gelly Roll 08 pen, and Stickles glitter glue (Firefly, Lime Green, and Yellow).  For a bit more sparkle, I also added little dots of Stickles in Star Dust to the background.  For the sentiment, I used Lawn Fawn Little Bundle and Hap-Pea sets, stamped in yellow and black ink, cut with the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners, and attached with foam adhesive.  

To finish the card, I layered the background onto squares of yellow and green cardstock (Paper Source Sunshine & Clover), and then onto a white scallop square cut from Spellbinders Lacy Squares, and finally a white 4.25” square card base.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope everyone has a “Hap-Pea” Thursday and enjoys all the new Lawn Fawn products available today.  “Hap-Pea” stamping!

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&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
