Bearing Gifts - Pop Up Box Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Nicky back with you today with a very fun pop up box card using the brand new Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up by Lawn Fawn.  If you never fancied the challenge of a box card before ..... well, it just got quite a bit easier!



No more measuring, the Lawn Cuts craft die will do all the thinking for you and all you have to do is have lots of creative fun making the card.  I used Lawn Fawn's Lawn Cuts Grassy Border, die-cutting it several times over so that I could stack the grassy edges inside the card.  For today's box card I decided to use the relatively new Bearing Gifts stamp set by Reverse Confetti.   The bear in his car and the trees and background mountains were all stamped with Archival Ink and watercolour painted using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  They were then die cut and applied to the card, slowly but surely building the scene.



The panels that are layered on top of the flaps were made using papers from the lovely Watercolor Wash 6x6 Paper Pack by My Favorite Things.  I also used touches of the Uni-Ball Signo White Pen to highlight various points on all of the card's components.



No matter which way you turn the card there is something of interest and of course it all folds neatly flat into standard A2 dimensions.



I gave the reverse of my card the pretty panels but otherwise kept it blank since this is the only place to write your personal message to the recipient.

I do hope this card inspires you to make your own!  Have a wonderful and creative week, I will be back again next Tuesday and meanwhile you can also follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards, Pinterest and Facebook.

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 will work the same.  It&#…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …
