Pumpkin Basket Easy Pull Tab Card

 Hi crafty friends and happy November! I wanted to share one last fall/Thanksgiving card before launching into Christmas cards. I just love the recently released Concord & 9th Freshly Picked dies and stamp set! It is such a cute and versatile set and the interactive option is seriously the easiest one I have ever made!

I cut out all the pieces for the basket and pumpkins from colored cardstock. For the wooden basket, I used kraft cardstock and ink blended the edges for some interest with gathered twigs Distress Ink. I thought it would be fun to have some cute critters hanging out with the pumpkins and the Lawn Fawn mice were perfect for this little scene. I used a small sign stamp from Mama Elephant The Cat's Meow for the "pick me" so the recipient knows to pull the pumpkin for the interactive feature.

For the sentiment on the banner and pull tab, I used the sentiments from the coordinating Freshly Picked stamp set. Since I made this a fall themed card with pumpkins that aren't sweet, I had to accept the fact that this will not be a punny card. 💔😭 The background was a piece of patterned paper from my stash. Finally, I assembled the card and popped things up with foam squares. 

Supplies used:

Concord & 9th Freshly Picked Stamps and Dies

Lawn Fawn Bubbles of Joy (and dies)

Lawn Fawn Walnut Ink

Mama Elephant The Cat's Meow (and dies)

Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables

Distress Ink gathered twigs (or Distress Oxide)

Silver cardstock (like this one from Concord & 9th)

Kraft cardstock (like this one from Lawn Fawn)

Thanks for stopping by! 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

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
