Friends Forever

Good morning, Jessica here!  I am absolutely in love with the new release from Lawn Fawn and I was so excited to see that Vanessa is carrying the entire release in the shop!  My card for today uses one of the smaller new stamp sets, So Jelly!
I started off by stamping the jellyfish from So Jelly onto a piece of watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink before heat-embossing it with clear powder.  Then I used a Clean Color Real Brush marker in dark pink to color the jellyfish.  I added a little color to the top of the jellyfish, the spots, and the tops of the tentacles.  Then I used a clear wink of stella glitter brush to blend the color out across the jellyfish and add a little sparkle!  After the jellyfish was totally dry I used the matching dies to cut out each one.

Next I took a piece of watercolor paper trimmed to 4" by 7" and taped it to my craft sheet.  Then I smooshed salty ocean, mermaid lagoon, chipped sapphire, and peacock feathers distress ink onto the craft sheet and spritzed it with water.  I use a piece of acetate to pick up the ink and transfer it to the panel.  Once I was happy with the ink placement I dried it with my heat gun.  Then I added a second layer of distress ink to the panel for a darker look towards the bottom of the panel and dried that with the heat gun as well.  I added a few drops of water and a few spritzes of shimmer spray for more sparkle and dimension.

Then I took a piece of vellum and die-cut the ocean wave using the Lawn Fawn Ocean Waves Border die set.  I stamped the sentiment from Sophie's Sentiments with Versamark and then heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.  To assemble the card I adhered some of the jellyfish behind the vellum and one above the vellum with foam mounting tape.  I used vellum tape to adhere the vellum to the distress ink panel and then finished the card with a sprinkling of sparkling clear 4 and 6mm sequins.

Thanks so much for visiting...see you next 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

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
