Costume Party Interactive Card

Hi crafty friends! Jenn here wishing you a happy Monday! Today I have an interactive Halloween card featuring the super cute Costume Party set from Lawn Fawn. I wanted this scene to look like a group of friends trick or treating so as you pull the tab, the whole group moves towards the dinosaur friend giving out candy!

First, I stamped, colored (Copic markers listed below), and die cut the images. Then I started working on the background. I ink blended a night sky with Distress Oxides (seedless preserves, blueprint sketch, chipped sapphire, black soot) and splattered with water. After it dried, I used the Trick or Treat stencils by Honey Bee and black soot Distress Oxide ink to create the tree and houses. To create the silvery gray moon, I used the same Trick or Treat stencils with picket fence Distress Ink, pumice stone and hickory smoke Distress Oxide inks. (My kids kept thinking it was the earth and I had to insist it was the moon... So please tell me it looks like a moon...! 😆)

For the grass, I cut a piece of green cardstock with Simple Stitched Hillside Borders by Lawn Fawn and added some black soot Distress Oxide. Then I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

To make the interactive element, I used the Slider Glider dies from Mama Elephant. I attached a larger piece of acetate because I was going to adhere 3 images. You can see this in the picture below. After figuring out where the images would go, I stamped the surprise sentiment onto the pull tab. I cut out the tiny triangle for the pull tab using a die from Lawn Fawn's Swish 'n Pop pull tab set (not seen in the picture below but you can see it in the other pictures).

Behind the scenes look at the interactive magic

I assembled the images and grass piece using double layers of foam tape and squares (triple for the pumpkin kid and witch/Elphaba). The inside panel was cut out from Lawn Fawn's Outside In Stitched Rectangles and I added the sentiment and extra images. Finally, I added white gel pen accents and hints of glitter to the images.

And that's it! Thank you for stopping by! Don't forget to check out the BRI store for some crafty goodies! Happy crafting! 💖Jenn

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
