Fancy Pants Chicago

 Hello!  Lisa here with a new layout sharing tons of the Fancy Pants As You Wish Collection.  This layout came together in less than an hour mainly because I was working with one collection, and collections are made to make things simple.  I am completely smitten with the As You Wish collection not only for it's amazing designs, but the bright and fun colors are really eye catching...

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper, stickers, Ephemera Pack, tickets: Fancy Pants Designs
Spray Mist
Jolee's Stickers
Basic Cardstock

  • To create this background I took my cardstock outside, unscrewed the lids to my mists and flicked away.  It was rather windy when I was doing it so my feet came in handy, and I simply look like I don't know how to apply nail polish hehehehe!
  • Try angling your patterned papers to create new designs and interest.
  • Use grid or lined patterned paper as journaling spots.
  • If you really like the patterned paper in a collection consider buying other elements to make putting a layout together a snap.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope this has given you some inspiration ( or at least a nudge to go check out the As You Wish Collection, hehehehe!)
Happy Crafting!

  5. Great picture and I love the layout. The colors are so fun, but totally looks "adult" with the black. That little skyscraper embellishment is perfect. :)

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
