What's for Dinner? Reveal Wheel

Happy Thursday crafty friends, Ashley D. here!  I’m back today with another fun food-themed card featuring some more great new products from the Lawn Fawn Spring 2019 release.  I’m so excited to finally have some fun little food images with the new Lawn Fawn Plan On It: Meal Planning!  I definitely see a bright future for these little guys in my creations to come.  Who doesn’t love to go out to eat on their birthday?  So, I decided to create a fun dining out card featuring a create-your-own-adventure type theme using the clever Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel interactive die.  

To begin, I created a simple ink-blended background by using Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and Broken China on Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I cut it out using the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Square Add-On with the Speech Bubble Reveal Wheel Add-On.  I also cut a second stitched square from the same die in plain white cardstock to act as a backer for the future assembly.  To create the “meal options,” I die cut the reveal wheel components from the standard Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel die.  

If you’ve used this set before, you know that getting the alignment just right for the stamped images featured in the rotating window required a little effort.  But never fear, the new Reveal Wheel Templates are here!  These awesome little plastic guides are created from the same material as your favorite stencils and are super easy to use, and clean (if need be), and come in two sets covering eight popular window shapes (Essential Shapes and Seasonal Shapes).  I like to tape the guide over my reveal wheel and then onto my MISTI, and stamp away!  But you could totally stamp the images by hand too.  Either way, the stencils make it so simple, easy, and fast!  For my wheel I used the cute food images from the new Lawn Fawn Plan On It: Meal Planning.

After the wheel was stamped, I colored the food with Copic markers (Taco – Y11, Y15, YG11, YG13, G07, E31, E33, E37; Burger – E50, E51, E53, E33, YR15, E37, YG11, YG13; Pizza – Y11, YR12, YR15, YR31, R59, E51, E53, E33); Ramen – Y11, Y15, YG13, YR15, BG000, BG01),  and assembled the wheel with the included die cut base components with a small brad and foam squares.  For guidance on how to assemble the reveal wheel visit Lawn Fawn’s great video tutorial on the item page found here.  To create my scene, I die cut a road using the Lawn Fawn Road Border in black and yellow cardstock (Paper Source Black and Sunshine), and a tree line using Lawn Fawn Forest Border in green cardstock (Paper Source Clover), and layered them onto the card front with Tombow Mono Tape Adhesive.  

I stamped the shops, clouds, and car images from Lawn Fawn Happy Village and Village Shops, and the car exhaust from Lawn Fawn Happy Trails in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored them with Copic Markers (Shops – E50, E51, E53, BG000, BG01, Y11, Y15, BV000, BV02, E31, E33, G00, YG11, YG13, RV10, RV02; Car – R02, R05, BG000, N1, N4, C0, C1; Exhaust – W0, W2, W3; Clouds – BG000), and cut them out with the coordinating dies (Happy Village Lawn Cuts and Village Shops Lawn Cuts).  I attached the images to the card with foam adhesive along with the sentiment, also from Lawn Fawn Village Shops, die cut with Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners.  To complete the card, I attached the square reveal wheel to a yellow square border (3-3/8” square) and then to a white card base (4.25” square), finishing with the included speech bubble frame and arrow die cut from the same yellow and black cardstock.  Now it’s ready for the recipient to choose their favorite dinner spot and celebrate!  Happy stamping everyone!

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

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
