Out of This World Monday!

Happy Monday crafty friends! Kim With you this morning, can you believe it is already and at the same time finally April! My project today features the fantastic Out of this World stamps and dies by Lawn Fawn! All of these products are available in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink shop!

I don't know about you but when a set is released that is perfect for masculine/boy cards I jump on it! I have 7 nephews and I find masculine cards daunting! So I had to have this one.


I started by stamping all of my images using my Misti Stamp Tool to double stamp for crisp black images.  I Copic coloured my images and I googled actual pictures of the planets to give a realistic color palette. 


I then pulled out all the border and background dies I wanted to use. I started by die cutting both navy cardstock and Neena Solar White (80 lbs) with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames. I then took the inside white piece and die cut it again using the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Borders to act like a moon. I then took the navy inside piece and die cut it with the Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop die for my sky. I sprayed the navy piece with white and shimmer spray to add texture and a galaxy effect.


I put the background elements together and then die cut my images. I glued all of my elements to the base and added some glossy accents to the space ship, the Saturn ring and the helmet. I added some shading to the Moon with my Copics and that was it! 

Go on to the shop if you are interested in any of these products and if they are out of stock simply select the put me on the waiting list option. Vanessa re-stocks very quickly!

Have a great week!
Kim

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 …
