Shell-abrate (a lotl)!!

Hey crafty friends!

It’s Julia here with with a super fun interactive center picture window unterwater birthday card (wow that's a mouth full lol)! I totally fell in love with the adorable axolotl stamp that was recently released by Lawn Fawn and I couldn't wait to use it! So I paired it with lots of other unterwater sets by Lawn Fawn to create my fun interactive card!

First I stamped my images from the I like You (a lotl), Seahorsin' Around, Mermaid For You, FintasticFriends, Keep on Swimming, You Are Sublime, Christmas Fishes, OceanShell-Fie and Manetee-rific stamp sets onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored them in using Copic Markers.

I die cut the all the elements for the Center Picture Window card as well as the heart add-on. I ink blended the panels using Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide for the ocean and Antique Linen with splatters of Vintage Photo for the sand. I used the MFT Ray of Light Stencil and white pigment ink to add the rays and I also added water splatters to the panel to create texture. Then, I die cut one wavy banner and second banner using the die from the
Center Picture Window set and colored them with Copic Markers. Then I heat embossed my punny sentiments in white. Those really just crack me up! lol

I assembled the card (you can watch the video below to see exactly how I did that) and added all my images using liquid glue.

Finally, I added lots of shimmer pen!

If you want to see how this card came together you can click on the video below!

I had so much fun making this card (totally snickering to myself every time I read the sentiments) so I really hope you like it as well!

Thank you so much for spending time with me and I hope you have an amazing day!

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
