Peek-A-Boo Pals

Hi everyone! Lindsay here for the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog post today. I'm still obsessed with then new Avery Elle release so I've made another card using their products today. 



I first cut out an A2 size stitched rectangle panel using Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Dies. Then I used the Avery Elle Circle Frame Elle-ments Die to cut out the evenly spaced circle frames onto the panel. I'm really loving this new die from Avery Elle as I struggle with layout sometimes and this does all the work for you and you get perfectly spaced circle frames every time! This would be great for any sort of mass production of cards.

I had some Distress Oxide Ink backgrounds from previously playing around with them and the Distress Micro Glaze, so I used the pinkish and bluish backgrounds and cut tiny squares out of the backgrounds just large enough to cover the space left by the Circle Frame Dies. I then adhered those to the back of the panel using a tape runner.

I then got to working on my critters! I stamped a bunch of the images from the Peek-A-Boo Pals Stamp Set using Extreme Black Hybrid Ink Pad for copic coloring. I colored the images using Copic Markers in a variety of brown, tan, and gray shades. Copic coloring is a pretty new venture for me so I'm still practicing! I colored more images than I would need for this card just to have some leftover for future cards.


Then I got to die cutting using Peek-A-Boo Pals Elle-ments Coordinating Dies. This took some time as there are die cuts for all the little feet, hooves, and paws as well, which is really nice for someone like me who hates fussy cutting!


All that was left to do at this point was to arrange all the critters and their little feet into the Circle Cut Dies and stamp the sentiment.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope that everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!
Aloha, Lindsay

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 …
