May all your dreams come true

Hello crafty friends and welcome back to the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. Silvia's here today sharing a Lawn Fawn Spring themed card with you.


I started die cutting two stitched rectangles from white cardstock with Heffy Doodle "Imperial Stitched Rectangles" die.
I ink blended the first one on top with scattered straw, tumbled glass and broken china Distress Oxide inks and I splattered with clean water and loosened inks.
I die cutting the second one using "Stitched Hillside Borders" die and I put them aside.


I then die cut all the pieces to build up the "Mushroom House" and I colored them with a mix of Distress Oxide inks and alcohol markers.
I also die cut a grassy border with Hello Bluebird "Grassy Knoll" dies, I ink blended it with twisted citron and mowed lawn Distress Oxide inks and I glued on my base with the mushroom house.
I decided to create a soft look for my background, so I die cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" rectangles from vellum and I glued on it with liquid glue.


At this point, I stamped images from the "Dandy Day" and "Really High Five" stamp sets, I colored them with alcohol markers, I fussy cut them and I added to my card with the two white "hillside" borders with a mix of liquid glue and foam squares.



As you maybe can imagine, I was inspired by the so talented and amazing C.C.ard making this card and I'm really happy of how it turned out.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Have a wonderful day, Silvia.

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&#…
