Caught a Bug? Feel Better Soon!

Hi everyone, Ashley here and I'm so happy to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink! Today, I'm sharing a Get Well Soon card featuring stamps and supplies from Lawn Fawn's Spring 2020 Release.


To start, I stamped out the adorable images of branches, leaves, dirt piles and bugs from Lawn Fawn's A Bug Deal stamp set. I coloured them in with Copic markers and cut them all out, leaving a small white border around each image.


For the background, I used a cloudy stencil to blend on some Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass. I did this on almost the entire card panel, leaving a small space at the bottom for the grass. I splattered the whole sky area with some white paint, as well as Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust, for a layer of shimmer.


At the bottom, I used a grassy stencil to blend on some Distress Oxide ink in Lucky Clover. I love how the one-layer inked background adds so much visual interest without adding too many bulky layers.


I arranged all of the images onto the card front and placed them down using either liquid glue or foam squares. I made sure to overlap a lot of the leaves to make the scene look really full.


I stamped two different parts of the sentiment separately, in black ink, so that they look like they follow the shape of the tree branches. I did this using my Mini MISTI stamping tool - I played around with the orientation of the sentiment stamp until I felt it was just right, before stamping.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! To see a short video clip of how this card shimmers in the light, as well as a bunch of my other cards, head over to my Instagram account at Ashley Young Paper. As always, all of the supplies required to make this card can be purchased at the amazing Butterfly Reflections Ink shop. I can't wait to be back next week to share another card - until then, have a great 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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 …

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&#…
