Happy St. Patrick's Day - Mood Board Inspiration with Jane


Happy Sunday!  Today, I'm sharing this super fun interactive card inspired by the March mood board!  Since St. Patrick's day is around the corner, I thought I'd create a fun interactive card using a mix of new and old Lawn Fawn products.  You'll find the products I used, as well as the new Lawn Fawn release at the Butterfly Reflections Ink store.  

To start my card, I first ink blended an A2 piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using distress oxide inks kitsch flamingo and squeezed lemonade.  Then, I used the puffy cloud background to cut the cloudy background.  Next, using the stitched rainbow die, I cut a rainbow using various colored cardstock.  Then I used the swish 'n pop die to create a pull tab mechanism to allow the rainbow to move.  The stitched mountain border die, simple stitched hillside die and stitched hillside borders used to create the front panel of the card.  This panel is large enough for the rainbow to hide behind the grassy hills.  

The images for the card are from the following stamp and coordinating die sets: gleeful gardens (foliage, mushrooms), ahoy matey (coins), gnome sweet gnome (gnome turned leprechaun), booyah (modified witch's hat), happy everything (for the sentiment on bottom), bicycle built for you (small flowers on the bottom left corner).  Images were stamped using versafine ink in black and colored using a mix of watercolor markers (tombow, zig and karin markers used).

The "pot" of gold was created by using the ice cream from the I scream you scream die set and modified by cutting the top using one of the stitched hillside border dies.  The scripty happy was cut from colored cardstock and glued to the top of the card.  White gel pen used to accent all the images and the card front was adhered to an A2 white card base.

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
