Birthday Wishes from out of this world

Happy Tuesday,

Alix here introducing my card for this week's Team Project using Lawn Fawn Beam me up stamp set.  To continue talking about scene building from last week, I searched on google by using key word "alien scene cartoon" , and tons of reference photos popped up for me to gather some ideas. I want to build a scene with all aliens living in their happy planet and the whole universe is their sky. So I started to put pieces together. 

First of all, I colored all images from Lawn Fawn Beam me up stamp set using Copic markers and set aside. I grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper to start create universe background. I ink blended using Tim Holtz distress ink in Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Chipped Sapphire and Tim holtz distress oxide ink in Black soot. Then I splattered some white acrylic paint by flicking a paint brush bristle.

Now let's create the planet. The surface of planet should not be flat. So I cut some hills using Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain borders die. I ink blended the hills with Tim holtz distress oxide ink in Gathered Twigs and Black soot to make it look like its covered with soils.I also cut some individual hills and randomly placed on the card with foam tapes attached to create some 3D dimensions.

We get to my favorite part now- Assembling! I adhered colored images either using Multi Medium Matte or foam tape onto the card front.I used copic marker to draw a little shadow underneath each alien so they don't look like they are floating (and of course they could if they want to.) I used Uniball white gel pen to decorate aliens, draw beam for flying saucer and create some stars.

I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment that comes with this stamp set using VersaMark and embossed with WOW Opaque bright white embossing powder. At last, I glued some Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent mini star confetti for my twinkle twinkle little stars.

Thanks for sharing my card making journey. I am looking forward to bring you more inspirations next week!

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 …
