Have I told you lately...

 Happiest Thursday, crafters!!  Heather here with you today and I'm sharing a card that I recently created for my husband!  March 24th was our 21st (wedding) anniversary and, I thought, that required an extra special card!

To create this one-of-a-kind interactive card I used Lawn Fawn's *NEW* Platform Pop-Up Lawn Cuts die set!!  So much fun!!  It seems that this die set would be super complicated to use - BUT IT'S NOT!!  The tutorial over on the Lawn Fawn YouTube Channel is SO helpful!  I can't wait to also pick up the special Pop-Up Add-On Lawn Cuts from the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop.  It's looks like such a fun way to add elements to this fun pop-up card!  Here is a sneak peek of my card:



First things first: I have to confess that I've been hoarding the Pink Paislee/America Crafts "Lucky Us" 6x8 paper pad for the LONGEST TIME!!!!  I just love the fun patterns so much and they're really perfect for a lovey-dovey anniversary card!  I used a bunch of the fun elements that came in the die set to decorate my pop-up card (those candy heart panels - SWOON!!!)

I love it when paper pads have those fun little sentiment strips included, but I don't always USE them.  "Have I told you lately that I love you" was just PERFECT!  

I knew that I wanted to stamp/color the fun images from Lawn Fawn's Bicycle Built for You stamp and die set along with the teeny kids/animals from Lawn Fawn's Tiny Friends stamp and die set to create this card.  I colored all of these Lawn Fawn images using Copic Markers and replicated our little family (and pets!) using them.

Finally, I used a few strips of acetate to attach little critters to the card along with the the fun sentiment {which also created a neat place to write out an anniversary message for my hubby}.  

Here is a look at the front and the back of the card!  


I love how this card came out and I hope that it inspires you to think outside the box with your card creations.  I get super satisfied when something works so well and Lawn Fawn stand alone dies really work so well!!  If you haven't tried this fun Platform Pop-Up Die Set, you need to hit up the Butterfly Reflection Ink Shop ASAP!!  Happy Crafting, Friends!

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
