Aquaman Anyone?

Hello to all you fabulous crafters, it's Candice here with you this Friday and I hope you are having a great day!  Excited to be sharing with you on Friday's with Butterfly Reflections, Ink!

Okay, I don't know about your home, but our home is a superhero home!  So of course I had to use the adorable new Sunny Studio Super Duper stamps.  I have been loving Davina's, on IG she's popsiclesticks, designs with movies and shows and decided to take my try at it!

I went with Aquaman, I love that I could create an underwater scene with him!

For my underwater superhero scene I used Sunny Studio products:
To start my slimline card, I create an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base and with the left over piece I trimmed to use on the front.  You can use size 9A envelopes to fit this card perfectly in.

I created the background first by blending salty ocean, mowed lawn, shabby shutters & scattered straw using the amazing Picket Fence blender brushes.  I then made the sand by die cutting using the woodland borders, inked with tea dye & antique linen and splattered brown and white paint with a paintbrush.

While I let that dry, I stamped all the images from super duper & best fishes using memento black ink.  Next, I colored them with copic markers and then cut them out with the best fishes coordinating dies & super duper coordinating dies.  I took aquaman and trimmed off the cape (cause we all know what happens to the ones that wear capes 😉)

To put the card together, I die cut Atlantis from vellum and added some white accents with a pen.  I ended up not liking it, but what can you do, we have all been there!

I took sentiments from each stamp set and combined to create this cute title!  I trimmed some black cardstock to create the banners and heat embossed in white.  For the final touches, I added clear nuvo drops which pick up the color under them beautifully!

I hope you get inspiration from crafty friends and try your hand at a new theme or style as I did with Davina's!

Thank you for visiting!

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
