Owl Always Love You!

Hi Butterfly Ink-ers!   Kimberly here today to share a sweet card made using stamps from Lawn Fawn.   I made this for my daughter, who has been having a rough time lately - two oral surgeries and lots of pain and tears over the last week at my I thought I'd make a card to let her know how much I love her!!


Circle Punch

I began creating my scene by die cutting the grassy border from a green shade of paper included in the Watercolor Wash paper pad.   I adhered it to some blue paper from the same paper pad (what a perfect sky background!!) and then die cut the panel out using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  I added some clouds to the sky, along with a sun (also from paper from the Watercolor Wash paper pad) that I cut using a circle punch from my stash.  

I stamped mama and baby owl using MFT's Hybrid Ink to ensure there would be no bleeding when I colored them in with Copics.  I added some Nuvo Drops for the baby's eyes.   I stamped the tree stump, adding a bit of Copic shading to the mostly solid image.   I cut out the images using my Scan-N-Cut, but you could definitely use the coordinating dies!

A piece of paper from the Perfectly Plaid paper pad was just the thing to add a bit more color to the card.   

This stamp set is geared towards Mother's Day, but the images can be used for anything - this is a great one to have in your stash, lol!   I can never pass up owls - they are my favorite!

See you again next week, crafty 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

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
