Trick or Treat

 Hello, Everyone! Allison here, and I'm back with a fun interactive Halloween card. I decided to do something a little different and incorporate the interactive feature onto a slimline card. I used several products from Mama Elephant and a few other bits, all of which are available in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink shop.

I started by creating the main feature of the card, which is the Flip Slider from Mama Elephant. I cut the main element out of black cardstock. I went ahead and stamped "Pull" on the corresponding part of the element. I figured it would be easier to stamp at the beginning before I assembled the whole thing. I think my Pull stamp from MFT is retired, but Lawn Fawn has a set of great interactive stamp sentiments. 
I then stamped the images that were going to be highlighted on the slider. I used the adorable Little Mummy Agenda from Mama Elephant for this. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on white card stock and then colored the images with Copic markers. After some very simple coloring, I cut the images out using the smallest rectangle die in the slider set. 
I then picked four different Halloween colors of card stock and used the larger rectangle die from the slider set for each color. I then mounted the stamped image cutouts onto the colored paper cutouts. While I had the paper out, I decided to use it to create the base of my card. I cut 1/2" strips of each color and then glued them into a stripe pattern on my 3.5"x8.5" white card base. I used Scor-tape to adhere the images to the base of the slider mechanism. It's really easy to line each one up with the score lines.
I cut a white piece of card stock to use for the main panel of the card and then stamped my "Trick or treat" sentiment at the bottom. This sentiment comes from Pink & Main's Fall Sentiments set. I decided to add a fun surround to my slider element - just a simple black and white polka-dot paper from my stash. I glued that to the panel and then adhered my slider with Scor-tape. I also used black paper as a surround for the white panel.
I used the Whimsy Alpha set from Mama Elephant for the "BOO" letters. I also used the Cute Cobweb dies from Lawn Fawn to add the fun cobweb and spider elements at the top. I then finished the card off with a few enamel dots in coordinating colors.
This interactive die set is really fun. When you "pull," the images each flip up, revealing the image underneath. Thanks for joining me today - I really hope you enjoy the card. Wishing you all a crafty 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

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
