Fourth of July with Lawn Fawn

 Hello crafty friends and happy Fourth of July. Today I’m sharing a fun Fourth of July Celebration, that I created using tons of LawnFawn stamps and dies. I wanted this slimline scene to be full of summertime favorites.

I started by stamping tons of food and snack images from several sets; Let’s BBQSweet Friends, Screen Time, and  Crazy Antics. I colored everything with my copic markers using lots of bold red, white, and blue combined with classic food colors. Then I cut everything out using the coordinating dies. 

To build my background I used the Small Slimline Lift the Flaps stitched panel die to cut 3 pieces from different paper. I cut from white Bristol Smooth, Grassy green, and a dark grey cardstock. I trimmed the gray panel about 1/3 of the way down using the oldie but goodie Village Border Die. I used the small rectangles to cut from yellow scrap paper for the windows. I inked the edges of the village with black and purple oxide ink. 

Next, I trimmed the green panel at about half way down with the  Stitched Hillside Borders and inked the edges with lucky clover distress oxide ink. I trimmed a small portion of the left over green Panel to build my buffet of images upon. Once full and lush I mounted that to the bottom of the grass with foam tape. Then built the fun blanket scene toward the top, and adhered the grass to the dark village layer. 

For the sky I cut the fireworks into the upper portion using  Stitched Fireworks lawn Cuts , then inked the area with blues and purple. I splattered with white, and glittery ink  and got to work on my sentiment. I cut the Scripty Happy lawn cuts from red cardstock and fun foam, then layered them together with liquid glue.  I cut a banner with Fancy Wavy dies, and using blue ink, stamped “ Fourth of July” from the Celebration Scripty Sentiments

Once everything was glued down I surrounded the sentiment with tiny star confetti. I’m so happy with how fun everything turned out and it reminds me of the great family gatherings of my childhood. I hope you like this and head over to the shop to check out all of these great items. Thank you for stopping by,

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

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
