Hello Pumpkin with Waffle Flowers Crafts

Hey there crafty friends, Davina here on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog to share a post with you that I should have shared the other day, but I’ve been half dead and unable to preform my duties, not really half dead, but I sure felt that way. I made a wonderful fall themed center picture window card using the October Moodboard colors and the adorable mouse set from Waffle Flower Crafts called Hello Pumpkin which is on clearance right now on the Butterfly Reflection Ink website. I also used the incredible die set from Lawn Fawn called Center Picture Window and the add on set to create the foundation for this card.

I cut the cardbase and the window from from the textured green cardstock that I had a few strips of i in my scrap bin, then I selected a piece of  Lawn Fawn Fall Fling patterned paper that coordinates wonderfully with the current color Mood Board. I cut a piece to fit inside the card and trimmed it up a bit so that when it is folded and adhered, it would fit the same all around. Then I used a few scraps of kraft cardstock and cut the stitched window panels using the add on die set. I mounted the larger fron window on a bit of attended paper for visual interest.

I stamped all of my images using my stamp platform and Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink onto bright white Neenah Solard cardstock. Then I colored them with Copic markers using blush link, orange, mustardy Antique moss, and forest greens. I die cut the shares using the Hello Pumpkin dies and highlighted with white get pen. After playing with image placement I heat embossed the front kraft panel with my sentiment using Lawn Fawn Gold embossing Powder then adhered my images.

I attached my images to my inner layers before applying them to the cardbase, making sure to only glue the pieces on one side of the folds. Then a attached the side panels and images. I think the little black mouse with the pumpkin outfit is my favorite haha.

Please head over to the Butterfly Reflections Ink website and check out all of the amazing products she has on clearance. It truly is the best time to stock up. There’s over a hundred pages so I suggest selecting the brand that you love from the main menu, then sort by SALE, it’s the easiest way to find what you’ve been wanting at an incredible bargain!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this card,
Davina

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 …
