I'm so glad we're friends

Hello crafty friends! Silvia's here today with a card inspired by my childhood memories.
I love taking long walk in the open air on Spring and I really miss them a lot this year, so I decided to create this happy and joyful scene using a bunch of  Hello Bluebird stuff.

I started die cutting a white stitched rectangle and all the pieces to build up my scene with the "Skating pond scene" and the "Grassy knoll" dies and I ink blended them with Distress Oxide inks ( I used shabby shutters and evergreen bough for tree leaves, vintage photo and ground espresso for tree trunks,  twisted citron and mowed lawn for the grass and salty ocean and peacock feathers for the river).

I then stamped images  from the "Seaside Girls" and  "Garden Friends" stamp sets, I colored them with alcohol markers and I fussy cut them out (if you prefer you can usee coordinating dies that you can find here and here).

I attached all my pieces together using a mix of liquid glue and foam squares and I added a sentiment from the "Farmyard Little Bits" stamp set and I used "Boysenberry Blast" hybrid ink by LDRS Creative to stamp it out.

I really love how this card turned out and I hope you'll enjoy it the same.
Thank you so much for passing by today and stay safe and healthy.
Big hugs, Silvia.


  1. I love the day you used this die set and thanks for the ideas. Beautifully done!

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
