I'd Be Lost Without You Anniversary Card

Hey friends! Britney here with a card featuring several Lawn Fawn products (Car CrittersHappy Village, Oliver’s Stitched ABCs, Happy, Happy, Happy, and Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait). My husband and I just celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary at the end of July and I thought this card was very fitting to celebrate.

If you’ve ever read any of my previous blog posts before, you know I like to start with my background first. I started by cutting four panels using the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait out of Chili Pepper card stock. I cut out the center cross lines from each and glued them all together using liquid adhesive. On a plain white panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock, I masked off a line to ink up my sky. I used Lawn Fawn Fish Tank and Blue Jay inks. Once that was done, I spritzed some of the Avery Elle Clear Shimmer Spray to the background. I used Lawn Fawn Manatee and Soot inks to ink up my road and Cilantro and Freshly Cut Grass inks for the grass. 

I stamped my images from Car Critters and Happy Village with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black Ink, colored my images with Copic Markers, and cut them out using the coordinating dies. To add the effect of glass in the car, I put a piece of acetate behind the car and in front of the bears riding in the car. I also used some Glossy Accents on the headlights. I finished off my images by adding some highlights with a white gel pen. I stamped the birds in the background using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I glued all of my images directly to the card base. I white heat embossed the sentiment from Car Critters. For the “Lost” portion of the sentiment, I die cut each letter four times using Oliver’s Stitched ABCs for some nice depth and dimension. 

For the inside of my card, I stamped images from Car Critters and the sentiment from Happy, Happy, Happy using Lawn Fawn Chili Pepper ink to match the card stock on the front of my card. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it. Have a wonderful day!

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
