Foxy birthday with Peter

Hello everyone! I'm happy to be back to share some more inspiration with you all. I made this very foxy slimline card to wish someone a happy birthday!

For the base I used the Slim Card Basics from Mama Elephant. I took a patterned paper scrap for the scalloped frame and I ink blended a simple gradient on the stitched slimline with Distress Oxide Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry.

The white frames are made with the frame from the Magic Picture Changer set from Lawn Fawn. Why only use it for the Magic Picture Changer, when you can also make a fun slimline card with it? Or what about square mini cards? 

The cute foxes are from the Fox Costumes Before 'n Afters set from Lawn Fawn. They are incredibly cute! And they work also great with the Magic Picture Changer, so this show you fun it is to stretch your card supplies.

I colored the foxes in with my Copic markers and I gave them all some shiny details, like the cherry on top of the cupcake fox, with Glossy Accents.

I love all the 'Scripty' dies from Lawn Fawn, because they make it so fun to have a big sentiment on your card. I always love to combine it with a smaller, stamped sentiment piece, but it's also super fun to have a big 'Happy Birthday' like I did on this card using the Scripty Happy and Scripty Birthday dies.

I hope I could inspire you to get crafty yourself and I hope you have a great rest of the week. As always, feel free to ask me any questions. You can find me on Instagram. I will be happy to help!

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
