To My Stud Puffin!

Hi crafty friends, Happy 2020!! I'm so excited to be sharing my first blog post for Butterfly Reflections Ink with you!

Today, I'm sharing this adorable love card using all Lawn Fawn.

I absolutely adore these sweet puffins from the Stud Pufin Stamp Set! 
I began by stamping my images on Bristol smooth cardstock with black Momento ink. I used the following sets: Christmas Dreams (fish with bow), Butterfly Kisses (clouds and grass), and of course Stud Puffin.
I colored all of the stamped images with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies.

Next, I started on my background.  I used The Large Stitched Rectangle Dies  and cut the largest rectangle, then I used Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks to create my background. Then, I flicked some clean water on my inked panel to create some interest and finished it off by randomly stamping the heart from Stud Puffin in the same Distress Oxide inks.

I used the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders to create a grassy background for the puffins.  I used Twisted Citron Distress Oxide to ink my grassy hill. Then, I ink blended the edges with Mowed Lawn and splattered some watered down Mowed Lawn onto the panel to give it a more realistic grassy look.

Next, using the Happy Mail Lawn Cuts, I die cut the mailbox and assembled. I also die cut the heart the puffin is holding with this.

I attached my inked panel to an A2 card base with this adhesive. Next, I attached the grassy hill to the bottom of my card. I tucked the mailbox under the grass, and started gluing down my stamped images. I used 3D foam squares to attach the puffins for some dimension. 

Finally, I finished off my card by stamping the "sending love" sentiment in black ink. I heat embossed the "to my stud puffin" sentiment in white embossing powder directly onto the card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! See you soon!

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
