Cozy Bear Scene Changing Card




Hi crafty friends! I have a confession: I am a patterned paper hoarder. I have paper from a decade ago that I still haven't used up because I think they are too pretty or too cute to use. Or I had a project I bought the papers for and I have long since abandoned the project. So I was super excited and super proud of myself for using some of my patterned paper in today's card! And I love scene changing type of cards so this card was a double win for me! 


For today's card, I used multiple stamp sets to create this cozy scene. I stamped out images from several Lawn Fawn sets (Den Sweet Den, Purrfectly Wicked, Window Scene: Winter, and Car Critters). For the flowers in the vase, I used an image from The Cat's Meow by Mama Elephant and extended the stem with a black pen. To create the picture frame, I masked off the words and string from the frame in Den Sweet Den and stamped the little bear from Car Critters. For the couch and pillows, I stamped the images directly onto patterned paper. I used the coordinating dies to cut out all the images except for the vase (I had to fussy cut that since I added the flowers). I colored everything with Copic markers (listed below).


To create the backgrounds, I used patterned paper for the wallpaper and floor. The baseboard was cut from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangle Frames. The window and curtains were created with Lawn Fawn's Window Frame dies. For the front of the card, I used fired brick Distress Ink (you could also use Distress Oxide ink) with a MFT brick stencil (any brand of brick stencil would work). I wanted to have some bricks darker than others for some variety and interest so I made sure to darken a few of the bricks with extra ink. 

I cut the hole for the window frame using the die from the Window Scene: Winter set. To create dimension on the outside window frame, I glued together several layers of the window frames together. The sentiment was stamped out and cut with Everyday Sentiment Banners by Lawn Fawn. Finally, everything was glued together!


I hope you enjoyed this card! The bear reading is literally me, reading to my kids, with their stack of books on the ground, handing me book after book until I beg for a break and a drink of water... And my favorite part of the card is the little kitty cat peeking out of the window... if I had a cat, that's what I imagine it to be doing :)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!

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

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

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
