Love You To The Moon

Hi Crafty Friends! Today, I have a fun card to show you, featuring the brand new Magic Iris  Interactive Die from Lawn Fawn. Have you tried it yet? I have always been a bit intimidated by interactive cards, but this one is so fun AND easy to assemble.

To begin, I created a starry night background by ink blending a stitched rectangle with Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. I cut a scallop circle using the Magic Iris Scalloped Add-On, and ink blended that the same way to blend into my background. I sprinkled some clean water onto my inked backgrounds, blotted off, and then added some white acrylic paint(thinned with water) with a paintbrush to create the "stars".

Next, I created my Magic Iris mechanism, which will be placed on top of my background. I inked the inside of all the rings and the "sausage" pieces(LOL) with Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire inks, so it would look cohesive and you wouldn't see any harsh white edges when opening and closing the Iris.

Next, I stamped, colored, and cut my images from the following sets:
Dandy Day (mouse)/ Coordinating Dies
Super Star (telescope)/ Coordinating Dies
Out of this World (sentiment)

Next, I cut my "MOON" sentiment from the yellow cardstock in the Shimmer Cardstock Tropical pack. I cut it two times from yellow, and once from white cardstock, and layered it just slightly offset so that the white peeks out the side. I then cut my clouds from the Meadow Backdrop: Portrait die.

Now, we're ready to assemble the card!

First, I place the Magic Iris on top of my background and adhere(make sure it's closed when doing this). Next, I opened my iris and attached the cloud and moon to the inside.

Then, I arranged everything onto card, and attached with tape runner and 3D foam squares (for some dimension).
Finally, I heat embossed my sentiment from the Out of this World set onto black cardstock strips with White Embossing powder, and attached to my card. I added a few star embellishments I had in my stash to complete my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you will try a Magic Iris card...they are soo much fun to make, promise! :)

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
