Love ya

Hello everyone and Hello Tuesday,

I am starting to make my shopping list after 3 days previews of all kinds of products from Creativation 2018. How about you? Did you see anything that amazed you so far? Today we are getting back to simple. I am trying to keep it clean. You know it’s usually hard for me not adding lots of elements. Let us see if you like my style this time.

I used two frame dies to prepare the foundation base. Die-namic Wonky stitched rectangle Stax for the outer edge and Lawn Fawn Outside in Stitched Scalloped rectangle stackables die for the inner frame. I added foam tape to raise the frame that I created to form some dimension. For background prep, I used ink blending technique by using Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Picked Raspberry and Fossilized Amber. I splattered some white acrylic paint using a paint brush to build some textures.

I set them aside and started to work on images from Lawn Fawn Thankful Mice stamp set. I used masking technique to create the pile of cheese for my mice to stand on. I customized the heart balloon by stamping a heart from Lawn Fawn Conversation Heart add-on stamp set, and I used a black pen to doodle it into a balloon. Then I colored all images I need with Copic Markers. Since Mr. mouse was asking Miss Mouse to be his valentine, I added some Iridescent Heart Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh.

At last, I stamped “Love Ya” from Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words stamp set and cut it with its coordinating die. I glued it onto upper portion of the window as sentiment for the whole card. I hope you'll have a wonderful day and have fun creating!

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

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
