Oh, Gnome! You're sick!

 Hello friends!  This is Crystal here with you today.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are ready for a new year to begin.  I think we could all use a fresh new start!  Today I am sharing a fun slimline card featuring a variety of the Lawn Fawn products we all love.  I figured that with winter upon us (at least here in New England anyway), 'tis the season for colds, flu and need I speak of the more obvious, COVID?  So, having a good supply of get well soon cards on hand is probably a good idea during this time of year.  


Card details: 

Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage.  The base of this slimline card (8 1/2" x 3 1/2") was made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  I created the background by cutting a piece of purple Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes cardstock.  I die cut the Lawn Fawn Mushroom House from white cardstock, Cajun Craze and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I assembled the mushroom house and adhered it to the center of the card.  I cut some of the grassy border using the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes cardstock and the Grass Border Honey Cuts by Honey Bee Stamps.  



I stamped all of the images (the gnomes, mushrooms and flowers) from the Lawn Fawn Oh Gnome stamp set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I die cut the same images using the Lawn Fawn Oh Gnome Lawn Cuts.  I colored the images with Copic alcohol ink markers and added highlights to each image using a white gelly roll pen.  I adhered all the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added height.  Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to all the images for sparkle. 


I hope you have enjoyed today's card!  Thanks for visiting and remember to shop local (or shop small, if you are not local) at Vanessa's awesome store!

Happy crafting!

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

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

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
