Hope Your Day is Glitch-Free!

 Hi everyone, Ashley here and I'm so excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog to share a card with you!

I made this interactive reveal wheel card to send to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. Since we don't see them in person as much these days, we have been relying on Zoom to stay in touch, which is represented by this scene. They have a Boston Terrier, who I've placed in the room on the card, and on the computer are me, my husband, my cat Luna and my dog Indiana, saying hello through the screen!

I started by assembling the background and interactive pieces. The background ("wallpaper") was cut out of a piece of Lawn Fawn Into the Woods Remix patterned paper using the Reveal Wheel die and Reveal Wheel Rectangle Add-On, but any patterned (or inked!) paper would work for this. The ground was cut using the same die from some Lawn Fawn Woodgrain cardstock and inked slightly with Distress Oxide ink in Weathered Wood. The wheel for the Reveal Wheel was cut from white cardstock, and the images that are revealed as the wheel is turned were stamped on in black ink, using the template stencil.

Next, images from a few Lawn Fawn stamp sets were stamped using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink: Virtual Friends, Tiny Friends, Critters at the Dog Park, Den Sweet Den, and Christmas Dreams. I coloured in all of the images in with Copic markers and then cut them out. I glued the two tiny people, the tiny cat, and the tiny dog into the third window on the reveal wheel, and then I assembled the whole mechanism together.

Here are a couple more photos that show the images that appear when you turn the wheel:

For a final touch, I stamped the sentiment "miss you" in green ink onto a speech bubble that I cut using a die from Lawn Fawn's Foursquare Backdrop: Landscape die. I also cut a small arrow from Lawn Fawn's Reveal Wheel die set from holographic cardstock and placed that just to the right of the wheel, so the recipient knows to turn it. Finally, the whole panel is backed onto a piece of Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid: Remix patterned paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by! To see more of my cards, head over to my Instagram account or YouTube channel.

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
