Thank You Fairy Much

Hello crafty friends (and a goodbye for now too!!)
Well, it's here - my last blog post for my DT term here at Butterfly Reflections Ink! It's been great fun, thanks so much for the support and I will hopefully see you every now and again for a post here and there!!

As mother's day is on it's way (hope you have all left your crafty wish lists in strategic places so the family can see what you want!!! - or they can just get you a voucher from Vanessa at BRI hehe!!) I used this cuter than cute stamp & die set from Avery Elle - Pixie Dust

I had a fun - concept in mind of how Mums are the "cleaning fairy", "cooking fairy", "washing fairy" etc - just a thank you to the "fairy" in your household!
Had to put a little interactive slider element into it too so she could fly!

 To make this card, I started by cutting a stitched rectangle and sponging it with Distress Oxide inks - tattered Rose & Worn Lipstick. I splattered this with water droplets and used a die to cut a channel for my slider. I stamped "Mum" with a sentiment (modified by me with scissors!!) from the WPlus9 Strictly Sentiments 4 stamp set. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Pixi Dust set underneath. I stamped and coloured the fairy with copics and completed the slider piece which I adhered her to. I used mounting foam to adhere the front panel to a white card-base. I finished the card with sequins and kindy glitz to add some sparkle.

Thanks again for all the crafty love during my time here and look forward to seeing all the new DT creations ahead!

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
