Lawn Fawn Alcohol Ink Butterflies

Hi guys!  Amy Copeland here with an impromptu guest design spot here on the blog.  I just finished a CASE of my first DT card for Vanessa (created about a year ago), using some different products, and I'm so excited to share it with you.  I had some playtime a few weeks ago with some Yupo Paper and Ranger Alcohol Inks.  A few days later, I cut out some of the wings with two new Lawn Fawn die sets that are absolutely AMAZING--the Pop-Up Butterfly die set and the Layered Butterflies die set.  The big purple/pink butterfly was cut with the Pop-Up Butterfly and the smaller ones as well as the body for the large purple/pink butterfly were cut with the Layered Butterflies set.  I used Lawn Fawn Storm Cloud cardstock for the bodies and antennae.



The background was created with a Stitched Rectangle die--I cut it out of white cardstock, then used an Ink Blending Tool to lightly blend Mermaid ink by Lawn Fawn onto the background.

I used Harold's ABCs stamp set by Lawn Fawn to stamp out my custom sentiment with Storm Cloud ink--I don't see that stamp set in the store, it's older, but you can use any small alphabet stamp set, like This One, to stamp any custom sentiment on your cards.  You can even use Alphabet Stickers--think outside the box!  :)  I adhered my butterflies with liquid glue.



I kept this card really clean-and-simple, to let the butterflies shine.  I finished the bodies and antennae of the butterflies with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay sparkle pen and a few Clear Jewels.

Thanks for joining me today--I hope this card inspires you to create your own card with a custom sentiment and to look at your stamps and dies in a different way.  :)

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 …
