Whale Love


Hello there! Amy (The Craft Bunny) here today sharing a love scene card. I adore the Whale Hello set from Avery Elle. I made the tails of the whales to turn upwards like they are playing (or making out) under the water.


For the wavy ocean, I used My Favorite Things' Snow Drifts Cover-Up. The first time I saw this die, I was like hmmm I don't know how to use it and I simply tossed it aside. However, the more I tried to use it, the more possibilities it can offer! I have made land, sky, abstract background, and now ocean out of it!! Stay tuned with my blog for those examples, some are already there, some are coming soon :) Anyways, believe me, this die is a must-have!


Here's a closer look at my card.
  1. Die cut Snow Drifts Cover-Up out of watercolor paper. Blend blue and teal inks on the bottom panels and add water droplets. Cut away the top inner parts of the cover up die to free up the top space. The, in lay the bottom colored pieces 
  2. On the card base, blend some yellow inks as halo
  3. Stamp, color and fussy cut out the whales and adhere them as shown
  4. Finish with the sentiment and some hearts

When I look at the finished card, the waves remind me of the banners at sushi restaurants. Here's a picture in case you don't know what I'm talking about. This card looks very Asian to me now. Once you see it, you can't un-see it LOL.

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …

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 will work the same.  It&#…
