Happy Autumn Scene!

Hi everyone!  I'm back today with another fall-themed card.  This scene takes place in a happy apple orchard filled with cute little critters.  The little bird at the top is next to the speech bubble with different sentiments revealed with the turn of the wheel.  These interactive cards are so much fun to make!  Here is how I created this one...

Using two pieces of Bristol smooth cardstock, I ink blended the following distress oxide colors (top to bottom): abandoned coral, wild honey, mustard seed and crushed olive.  Water drops were splattered onto both backgrounds using a paintbrush.  Then, one of the ink blended backgrounds was cut using the reveal wheel die and the reveal wheel speech bubble add-on.  Then both of the card stock backgrounds were cut using the stitched cloud backdrop die to create the stitched cloud background.  The reveal wheel "wheel" was ink blended using abandoned coral, wild honey and mustard seed inks.  The sentiment was stamped on the wheel using the reveal wheel sentiment stamp set and the pieces were set aside.

Using another piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, I ink blended cracked pistachio and mowed lawn distress oxide inks.  Cracked pistachio was diluted with a little water and splatted on the ink blended paper.  After the ink was dry,  the pieces were cut using the grassy hillside borders die.

On a piece of heavy white cardstock, images from toadally awesome, tree before n' afters, thanks a bushel, elphie selfie and big thanks for hero arts were stamped using hero arts black dye ink.  The images were colored using copic markers and a white gel pen was used to add details.  Then the images were cut using the coordinating dies.

Lastly, I arranged the reveal wheel and images on my card base and adhered them using both liquid adhesive and foam squares.  Glossy accents and stickles (yellow and neon flamingo) added for extra shimmer.  The entire card front was adhered to an A2 size card base.

Hope you enjoyed this card!  Can't wait to share with you again next week.  Until then, have a lovely rest of your week!

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

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
