Lucky Charm - LawnFawn

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Danielle here up on the BRI blog with a fun card featuring Lawn Fawn Lucky Charm stamp and die set.  Spring is definitely in the air and I wanted to make a bright and cheerful card for you!

I started off using Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames die and some Lawn Fawn Sparkle Holiday Cardstock.  This pack has a beautiful emerald green glitter cardstock that was perfect for spring.  Once cut, I adhered to my card base.  For my second layer I used gold mirror cardstock and the new Avery Elle Scalloped Mat die and ran through my die cutting machine.  This background die is so versatile and elegant!  I also used this same die and ran through my machine using plain white cardstock which I adhered on top of my mirrored panel using foam adhesive.  It cuts out a circle in the center which I used for my main focal point.  I ink blended the left over circle using Distress Ink Oxides in Lucky Clover, Evergreen Bough, and Shabby Shutters.  Once my ink blending was done, I covered the circle using Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone.  This adds such a sparkle and creates a whole new look!

I stamped the clover images from Lawn Fawn Lucky Charm stamp set using Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink pad.  This ink leaves crisp lines and can be used with copics without smearing.  I colored using various copic markers in colors YG07, YG11 and G09.  I added some sparkle onto my clovers using  Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen Clear Overlay for extra detail.  Once I ran through my die cutting machine I adhered my pieces to my center ink blended panel in random order using foam adhesive.  For my sentiment I used Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners die and ran through my die cutting machine on white cardstock.  This die is great because it comes with 3 different sizes and widths to fit a variety of sentiments.  I stamped using Versamark embossing ink and heat set using Lawn Fawn Gold embossing powder and trimmed down so I would have enough room to add an extra clover on one side.  I adhered to my top panel using foam adhesive.  I decided to add a little extra bling on the stitched impressions using Pretty Pink Posh Shamrock Jewels to emphasize the green of the clovers.

I hope you enjoyed this card and it will bring you some luck!

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…
