Have a Hoppy Day!

Hi friends! Tammy here with a fun and bright Spring card, featuring Lawn Fawn...old and new. I love how versatile Lawn Fawn's sets are, allowing me to really have fun mixing and matching sets to create a unique scene!

To begin, I cut a rectangle from the new Dandy Day Petite Paper Pad to use as my background. 
Next, I cut a scalloped rectangle from white cardstock, and a stitched rectangle from Bristol Smooth cardstock. I inked my background with Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide's, splattered with a bit of clean water, and set aside to dry.

Next, I die cut all of my scene elements using the following dies:

Grassy Border Lawn Cuts (grassy border in front, inked with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn)
Grassy Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts
Swan Soiree Lawn Cuts (pond, inked with Peacock Feathers)
Meadow Backdrop: Portrait Lawn Cuts (clouds)

Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the following sets:

Say What? Spring Critters Stamp Set/ Coordinating Dies (small frogs, speech bubble, flies)
Don't Worry, Be Hoppy Stamp set (sentiment in speech bubble)

Now, I began arranging my scene on my inked background. First, I attached my background to the white scalloped rectangle. Next, I placed my Grassy Hillside Border down first. Then, I attached the Grassy Border in front, using foam adhesive for dimension, and tucked the pond in between the grassy borders.

Now, I arranged my stamped images onto my card and glued them down. I popped up the frog sitting on the mushroom and in the pond, to add a little bit of interest and dimension.

Finally, I added the speech bubble sentiment to the center of my card using foam squares, and attached the clouds on the sides to balance the card design. I finished off my card by attaching it to the green Dandy Day rectangle, and then adhering it to an A2 card base.

That's it, my friends! Thanks for stopping by... I hope you enjoyed my "Hoppy" Day mash-up card...I'll see you next week!

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

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 vel
