A Sweet Fall Scene

Hello to you all this fabulous fall Friday!  It's Candice with you today sharing a typical fall day here in Minnesota!  Fall is the changing of leaves, but it also includes tons of rainy days. For this card, I used some of the old Hello Bluebird stamps with the new!  I love being able to do that!

All the Hello Bluebird products I used from Butterfly Reflections, Ink:
I began my slimline card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits perfectly into the size 9A envelopes.

For the background, I used my cameo silhouette to make a long cloud stencil that I inked with pumice stone to create the rainy sky.

I then stamped all the images from the Hello Bluebird stamp sets listed above, colored with copic markers and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. 

The colors I went with are from the new Butterfly Reflections, Ink Mood Board, aren't they unique and fantastic?!

Remember to add #BRImoodboard to your creations using these colors for your chance to win $20 to the store!

Now back to finishing up this sweet fall scene! 

I added all the layers of leaves with pumpkins and then pop dotted the tree branch and cuties.  For just a bit of sparkle, I added a few sequins and white accents using the white pen

If you notice, I have no sentiment!  I chose to just add the sentiment on the inside and keep the fall scene the center stage for this card!

I hope you are having a fabulous fall and that it inspires you to create and please share them with us!
If you need some new fall stamps, she has sooo many in the shop to chose from!

Thank you,

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
