Happy wedding day card with Annemarijn

Hi! My name is Annemarijn, 26 years old and living the happy life in Amsterdam with my boyfriend and our two cats. I’m beyond excited because this is my first Design Team post for this blog and I made a very cute card for you today. As inspiration I used the mood board colors from this month. I love how bright and colorful this moodboard is so I had to use it.

The card I made is a happy wedding day card with cute lawn fawn stuff. Because one of my crafty friends is getting married tomorrow. I’m going to tell you how I made the card. 

First I stamped the veil and the hat from bicycle built for you with memento tuxedo black ink and then I masked them and stamped the mermaid and merman from mermaid for you on top of it. I removed the mask and stamped the other images. I also stamped some coral from mermaid for you with distress oxide abandoned coral. Then I cut the images and I colored everything with copic markers. For the mermaid I used some quickie glue pen and dipped her in prisma glitter.

Next, I die cut the build-a-castle die and the stitched scalloped rectangle and cut a piece of paper from 4” x 5 ¼” from white cardstock. To create the colorful water castle I used distress oxide in the colors peacock feathers and picked raspberry. For the background I used some salty ocean and then I used on the castle and the background the bubble background stencils with white yeti ink for an extra underwater vibe. I also splattered some metallic watercolor on top.  The stitched scalloped rectangle I colored with abandoned coral and the sand bed I cut with the stitched hillside borders, collored with antique linen and splattered with some gathered twig. Next, I adhered the castle with a glue tube because it’s easy use for small parts. Then I adhered the rest of the card with 3d thin foam squares, stamped the sentiment and adhered a few blue sequins as finishing touch. 

I hope you like my card and join the #brimoodboard challenge yourself for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Butterfly Reflections Ink!

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
