Roller Coaster Cuteness!

Hi everyone, Ashley here and I'm so excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog to share another card with you!

For today's card, I played with the super fun Lawn Fawn Coaster Critters stamp set and coordinating slider die to make an interactive roller coaster slider card!


I started by stamping out a bunch of cuties from Lawn Fawn's Coaster Critters stamp set in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and coloring them in with a variety of Copic markers. I also used the cloud stamps from Lawn Fawn's Butterfly Kisses stamp set, and the cute bird giving out tickets is from Lawn Fawn's Say What? Pets stamp set.


To build the scene, I cut a piece of light blue cardstock down to slightly smaller than a card base and die-cut out the stitched cloud pattern using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Cloud Backdrop: Landscape die. I also cut a piece of green patterned paper from Lawn Fawn's Knock on Wood 6x6 patterned paper pack to the same size, then die-cut it with Lawn Fawn's Grassy Border die. I glued the grass onto the sky layer with liquid glue.


To make the slider channel, I placed the coaster image onto the card front with liquid glue, and then used the Lawn Fawn Coaster Critters Slide on Over add-on die to cut the sliding channel right above the coaster. I backed the whole panel with foam, and placed it onto the card base, making sure to position a dime in the slider channel. I taped a My Favorite Things Slider Element onto the dime, and then the bunny in its car onto the slider element. Then - wheeee, the sliding can begin!


I finished the card off by stamping the sentiment "Enjoy the Ride" in black ink onto a strip of yellow cardstock, and then adhering all the remaining images onto the card using a combination of foam squares and liquid glue. As always, all the supplies used to make this card can be purchased at the Butterfly Reflections Ink store.

Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope this card inspires you to try a slider card of your own, if you haven't already (they're so much fun!). For much more inspiration, head over to my Ashley Young Paper Instagram account (where I've also posted a short video clip of the sliding action!), as well as the Butterfly Reflections Ink Instagram account. I can't wait to see you again next week with another card!

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…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …

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&#…
