Party like Wild Animals

Good Morning Butterfly Reflections Ink Friends!

Alix here this morning with my Project using some fun techniques.I usually create cards with soft colors. But this time I want to step out of my comfort zone to create a card that is interesting and great for either boys or girls for their birthday. This layout idea came up to my mind quickly.

I created my background with Neat and Tangled Hexastar Stencil, Nuvo mousse in Cornflower blue and Aquamarine, and Ranger Texture Paste in Transparent Gloss. To create this background, I secured my stencil with a little bit washi tape over 110 lbs Cardstock. Then I mixed Nuvo mousse and Texture paste to apply over my stencil. At last, I removed the stencil and let it air dry for 20 minutes. To raise the center part, I cut the center of background using Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle die, then added foam tape to create the raised dimension.

I colored all images from Neat and Tangled Wild ones stamp set with Copic markers.I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of black cardstock from this stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed using WOW! white embossing Powder. I hand cut the fishtail stripe for the sentiment. I attached everything using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and some foam tape. In the end, I added some sequins from Neat and Tangled Starry Night Sequin Mix to decor the background.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed it and also are inspired.  Happy Cardmaking!

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
