Winter Village Scene card

Good morning crafty friends!  It's one more week closer to the holidays, and I have another card for you today.

Today's card was pretty quick.  I started by inking an A2 sized card panel with Distress Oxide Inks.  I used Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Lucky Clover.  I blended the inks, and then sprayed on some water, blotted it dry, then added a bit more water.  To get the snow flakes, I flicked on some white paint.

Then I stamped all the houses and tree images from Lawn Fawn's Winter Village set.  I colored everything with Copics and then cut them out.  I stamped the greeting on the background using Versamark Ink, and then heat embossed using Altenew Crisp White embossing powder.

To make the hills and frame, I cut some heavy white card stock using the Lawn Cuts Stitched Hillside Backdrop - Landscape. Let's talk about how versatile this die is.  If you like making scene cards at all, you can use this over and over.  This die is a great investment!  Lawn Fawn also has one for your Portrait oriented cards and you can find it HERE.  It is definitely on my wish list.

I then arranged my houses and trees and once I decided on a layout, I snapped a quick picture with my cell phone to use as a reference.  I used Scotch foam mounting tape to mount the frame, and then I adhered all my trees and buildings.


I used a few embellishments to add some sparkle - Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Snowflakes which I am using on everything this year (pro tip: get 2 bags!) and also some Crystal Stickles to embellish the snowy scene.

I also want to add that Butterfly Reflections Ink has a bunch of cute sets that you could use with that fantastic scene die.  Here are a few suggestions:


That's all for today - Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure to stop in the STORE and see all the FABULOUS new releases Vanessa has in!

Cheers!

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…

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&#…

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 …
