Surprise party with Peter

Hello everyone! It's Peter here again, ready to deliver some crafty inspiration! I made a frame card again, but this time I changed it up a little. I didn't really made mini scenes, but just used the frame as a fun element on the card.


I picked out an old time favorite: Party Animal. It's one of the sets that made me fall in love with Lawn Fawn long time ago. I also added Holiday Party Animal in the mix, so I had a different critter for every window of the frame.

Before I started coloring, I picked a patterned paper from my stash to decide on my color scheme.
Then I stamped everything out and colored the images in with my Copic markers.

I picked a matching colored cardstock for the frame and two for the sentiment; one for the Scripty Happy and one for the 'birthday' piece.

You can cut the background paper to size with your paper trimmer, but I'm lazy so I used my Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. If you would like to match it exactly in size, you could use the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables.

To make the sentiment a little more fun, I added glitter to the 'Happy' with the help of my Quickie glue pen. The 'birthday' is heat embossed on a piece of the cardstock I picked out.


I die cut the frame with the Foursquare Backdrop: Landscape die.

The final stap is to assemble it all and voila, your cute birthday card is done!

If you want to know more about how I've made this card, you can check out my video. And please know you're always free to ask me anything, I will be happy to help!

I hope you will have an amazing rest of the week!

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
