Sending Hedgehugs Summertime Woods Scene

Hello! I am so excited to be bringing you my first design team post for the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog and shop! * Insert girlish squeals here * !!!! Fall and winter are my favorite crafty times! I make wintery cards throughout the year! I hope you're excited and ready to be inspired!

Today I have a summery themed card. I'll ease into Christmas for those of you who haven't pulled out your Christmas decorations all ready.....yes, yes. That's me. I'm ready to go! Anyway....I'm going to be using some old and new Lawn Fawn products in today's card. Ready? Here we go!!

I started by stamping out my images with THIS ink onto some heavy weight cardstock. I used the hedgehogs and hearts from THIS stamp set and the trees and birdhouse from THIS stamp set. I colored them in using various colors of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I used EB1 and EB2 for the body of the hedgehogs, GB8 and GB10 for the spikes, FS2 for the cheeks, DR1 for the hearts, and IG1 and IG2 for the trees. I also used a few Copic markers for the birdhouse ( YR02 and YR04 and G00 and G02 ). I cut out the hedgehogs and hearts with THESE dies and the trees and birdhouse with THESE dies. I added a bit of shimmer to my colored images using THIS shimmer pen.

I die cut THESE clouds from more heavy weight cardstock and distressed them with a bit of Broken China Distress Ink. I didn't add any ink to my blender because I wanted just a bit of color. Then I die cut two panels using the second largest die in THIS set. I cut one piece with THESE dies to create a hill background for the hedgehogs to stand on. I distressed the sky background piece with Broken China and THIS ink. I blended the grassy ground with THIS ink and just a tad bit of THIS ink.

I spattered some water mixed with Perfect Pearls onto my Distressed Inked pieces and clouds and dried them with a paper towel after about 30 seconds. The Perfect Pearls give some shimmer and interest to the background pieces. After the grass piece dried I stamped the sentiment with THIS ink. I used some foam dots, liquid glue, and tape runner adhesive to put together my card.

That's it! My nice little scene card! I've linked to everything I can think of at the STORE. If anything is out of stock be sure to put yourself on the waiting list! That let's Vanessa know she needs to order more!

I can't wait to bring you another card next week! See you soon!!

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
