Yabba Dabba Doo! with Mama Elephant stamps

 Hi everyone! Peggy here with this cute Flintstones themed card with Mama Elephant  stamps. When I saw this release with the dinosaur stamps I knew I was sold. These are my first Mama Elephant stamps ever. The stamp set I used for this card is called Me and My Dinosaur.

I also got the stamp set with the miniature dinosaurs to match, which I will probably use on a future card for the blog! Let me show you how I made this card.

I started by cutting a card base and two panels with the Small Slimline Die from Lawn Fawn. I cut one panel out of white cardstock and one panel out of Lawn Fawn Kraft Cardstock. I trimmed down the kraft panel to make a floor for my cute little stone age images to stand on. I used a Ranger ink blending tool and some Tea Dye distress ink to make the panel look more like sand and to give it some interest. On the white panel I ink blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide using the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil.

I stamped my images with some Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored them with my copics. I looked up Flintstones images along the way as a guide. I particularly had so much fun coloring the pet dino, who is HUGE in this scene. I even drew on his blue collar with a copic multiliner.

Lastly, I cut the words Yabba Dabba Doo from some Lawn Fawn Sunflower Cardstock using Finley's ABCs and the exclamation point from Finley's 123s. I think this would make a super cute card to congratulate somebody on any achievement! 

Dinoooooo! (Sorry, that had to be done :))

Long distance hugs!

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
