Heffy Doodle You Go, Gull!

Good morning, everyone!  Amy Copeland here, guest designing for Butterfly Reflections, Ink today.  I used some super cute goodies from Heffy Doodle today, primarily the adorable You Go, Gull stamp set and Coordinating dies.  I started out by ink blending Lawn Fawn Peacock ink with an ink blending brush over the Lawn Fawn Cloudy stencil.  I then die cut the panel with the largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames die, then die cut two more panels with the same die out of Lawn Fawn Paper Bag and Lawn Fawn Peacock card stock.  I then used the Heffy Doodle Breaking Waves Border Dies to cut a wave out of the Peacock card stock and another die in that set to cut the sandy border out of the Paper Bag cardstock.  I cut one final frame out of Lawn Fawn Storm Cloud cardstock and set all of those pieces aside.

Next, I stamped all of my images in the You Go, Gull set and colored them in with Copic markers.  I die cut them out with the coordinating dies and then used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to glue the sandy piece to the wave piece, then the wave piece to the cloudy piece.  I used the same liquid adhesive to adhere my seagulls, the bottle, the sentiment, the hearts, and the buoy to my card.  I turned the panel over and just used Purple Tape to adhere my panel inside my Storm Cloud frame.


The final step was to adhere it onto an A2 sized card base (4 1/4" x 5.5 ") and applying Glossy Accents to the hearts.  I also used a Black Glaze Gelly Roll pen on the open eyes of the seagull to make them shiny and stand out more.  Thanks for joining me today, hope this card inspires you to create your own beachy scene card!

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

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
