Mom, I Love You S'More!

Hello everyone! It's Ashley Ebben with my first ever Design Team post! I'm so happy to meet you! I am thrilled to be joining the design team at Butterfly Reflections, Ink with such talented ladies! And of course, I'm super excited to share my cards with you all on Fridays!

Mother's Day is this weekend in the US, so I thought I would share a cute card for anyone who needs a bit of last minute inspiration before Sunday. I decided to use Lawn Fawn products to create a special card for my mom.

I originally got the idea for this card from the Lawn Fawn Love You S'More set as well as from a game my mom and I used to play when I was little. We would always argue back and forth, "I love you more!" "No, I love you more!"

I started by blending some Lawn Fawn Mermaid Ink in the middle of a piece of white cardstock and splattered a bit of gold watercolor across it. I cut a 3/8" strip from Lawn Fawn Mermaid cardstock for the sentiment. I love this color so much! I knew I wanted to use the Lawn Fawn Scripty Mom die, so I wanted to recreate the "I love you s'more" sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Love You S'More set with a simpler font. I took the "I love you" from Lawn Fawn Let's Toast and the "S'More" from Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends. I then used my MISTI to stamp them in the center of the sentiment strip with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Zing Gold Metallic powder.

I adhered then sentiment strip to the white ink blended panel and die cut the whole piece with the largest rectangle in the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables so the stitching would be on the edge of the sentiment strip as well. I just love stitched dies! They find their way onto the majority of my cards.

I centered the stitched die cut onto a piece of plaid paper cut to card size, then used the Lawn Fawn Scripty Mom die on the same paper to get a plaid die cut. I wanted the "Mom" to have some dimension so I cut it out three more times from Lawn Fawn Mermaid cardstock. I adhered the three die cuts together then glued the plaid die cut on top slightly offset to show the Mermaid cardstock underneath and put it on the card.

I stamped the s'more from Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends twice in Memento black ink, added some cute smiley faces, and colored with Copics before cutting with Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends dies. I stamped and cut the arms/legs so I could arrange the s'mores on the card holding hands for extra sweetness!

For a few finishing details, I made the chocolate look extra melty with some Glossy Accents and added a bit of sparkle with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear jewels!

I hope you all enjoyed my first post! I loved sharing it with you! See you next Friday!

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…
