Magical Princess Birthday

Hey friends! Christy here. As a mom of three boys, I don't often give in to the impulse to buy ultra-girly images, but this Once Upon A Time set by My Favorite Things was simply too cute to resist! Sweet princesses, adorable unicorns,... this set is just so playful, I swear it'll make you feel young again just inking it up! 

I colored my images with Copics and die cut them with the matching dies, then set my scene using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Stackables as my focal panel, the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Borders to create my grass, and added one of the clouds from MFT's Cloud 9 to my sky.

The gorgeous Posh 6x6 paper pad by Simple Stories served as inspiration for my color palette, and I just had to use as many of the beautiful patterns as possible on my card. I die cut the pink confetti print with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders and used the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables to frame my focal panel. My sentiment was stamped with Lawn Fawn Noble Fir ink, then the whole panel was popped up with foam tape.

And I just had to add a little Stickles here and there, because what's a magical princess birthday card without a little glitter? Am I right?

I also included some fun stamping on the inside with an additional image and sentiment in the Lawn Fawn Mermaid Ink, and you can check that out in the video below. I also created an additional card which you can find on my blog. Have an awesome day!

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

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
