Wild Birthday Wishes with Avery Elle Stamps by Beata

Hi crafty friends!  It's Beata June here.  Today I'm sharing this wild birthday wishes slimline card I made featuring stamps from the Avery Elle peek-a-boo series!

To make this card, I used the following Avery Elle stamp sets:

Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Flight stamp set
Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Christmas Train stamp set
Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Pals stamp set
Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Coaster stamp set
Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Pets stamp set
Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Jungle stamp set

First, I stamped the airplane from the Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Flight stamp set and the train and train car from the Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Christmas Train stamp set onto white cardstock and colored them with blue and pink colored copic markers, and cut them out.  

For my critters, I used the monkey and koala from the Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Pals stamp set, and the owl from the Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Coaster stamp set, colored them with copics, and cut them out.

Next, I made my background by cutting a stitched slimline panel from white cardstock, and blending Kitsch Flamingo distress oxide ink onto the card panel for the sky.  For the grass, I blended Twisted Citron distress oxide using the Waffle Flower Grass Scene Stencil.  Then I splattered my background with water, and white, pink and green paint.

Once my background was finished, I glued on my colored airplane, train, train car, and critters using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.  Then I stamped and colored some clouds from the Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Flight stamp set, and glued them onto my sky.

For my sentiments, I stamped the "it's your birthday" speech bubble from the Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Pets stamp set and glued it above my monkey in the train.  Then I stamped the "wild birthday wishes" sentiment from the Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Jungle stamp set to the left side of my grass below the airplane. 

To finish my card, I mounted the card panel onto a piece of black cardstock leaving a 1/8" border, and then mounted that onto my card base, and added highlights to my colored images with a Sakura white jelly roll pen.

I love the Avery Elle peek-a-boo line and how you can mix and match all the stamps in the sets to create new scenes! And the critters are oh so cute!!!

Thanks for reading along friends!

Crafty hugs,
Beata June 💚💚

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

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
