Fairy Happy Holiday

 Hello crafty friends! It's Amanda from @CaveWitchCrafts! I'm so excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today with this fun holiday scene inspired by this month's #BRIMoodBoard. I tried to keep it "simple" LOL and only used two stamp sets from Lawn Fawn. Most of the images are from LF set Frosty Fairy Friends, but I also used set Ready, Set, Snow for the adorable snowmen. 

I stamped images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink before coloring them and adding white gel pen highlights and LOTS of glitter pen accents. Using the largest die from the LF die set (retired) Small Dotted Rectangle Stackables, I cut out three panels on white cardstock. Each panel will create a different layer of the scene. The first panel will be ink with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to create a blue sky. The second panel will be cut using LF Die Stitched Hillside Borders to create a snowy bank. The third panel will be stamped using the foliage from Frosty Fairy Friends stamp set to create a border for the whole scene. Lastly, I cut out the second largest panel from the Scalloped Rectangle Stackables on white cardstock. 

On the first panel inked with a blue sky, I added white gel pen and glitter pen dots to look like snow. I also added glitter pen accents on the top of the snowy hill panel. The foliage on the third panel was stamped in Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn. I used two shades of green brush tip markers to fill out the branches before adding white gel pen snow dots at random. I cut out the center of the panel around the branches with an Exacto knife and scissors to leave the hole where my background can peep through. 

To assemble the card, I started by adhering the snowy hill to the blue sky base using an ATG. Then I adhered the background to the Scalloped Rectangle panel cut out from before. I glued the snow-covered treehouse to the scene using my LF glue tube. I also glued images to the frame before officially adhering it to the scene. Next, I added double-sided foam tape to the back of the frame. After peeling off the backing, I attached it to the snowy blue sky panel. The scene was matted again on black cardstock and attached to an A2 card blank. The sentiment was also stamped Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on white cardstock. I fussy cut it out and added it to the scene using double-sided tape. For the VERY final touches, I added clear glossy accents to the windows of the treehouse and the wings of the fairies.

Thank you all for checking out my card today and for supporting the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop! This month's Mood Board is so much fun! I hope you'll join in on the challenge!

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
