Free Hugs Interactive card

Morning crafty friends, Silvia here!
I'm so excited to sharing with you my first project for the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today.
For the occasion I made a Valentine's themed  sweet interactive card featuring the amazing Sliding Window die from Sunny Studio, the lovely Avery Elle's Market Stand stamp set and the adorable yeti  from Hello Bluebird's Yeti or Not stamp set.


I started stamping my images with Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf ink (I really love the soft look this ink gives to my card) and colored them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator. I cut them out and added details with a white gel pen.
I then die cut a stitched rectangle (4 1/4"x 5 1/2") from white cardstock and one from the Lawn Fawn Spiffy Speckles paper pad (I used the green one).


I colored the white panel ink blending spun sugar and worn lipstick Distress Oxide inks and splattered with water. 
I also love adding some texture on my inked backgrounds and this time I made it using a heart stencil from Heffy Doodle and picked raspberry  Distress Oxide ink first and splattering some pure platinum Nuvo Mousse loosened with a drop of water then.
I die cut two strips of grass from Lawn Fawn cilantro cardstock with Hello Bluebird Grassy Knoll dies.
I glued the taller one on my front panel and then I used the main die from the Sunny Studio die set to cut the sliding window.


I put everything together and I added "a little note" die cut border (I wanted it to be a bit sparkle, so I covered it with a drop of Lawn Fawn liquid stardust) on the outside and a stamp sentiment on the inside of the window.


I had so much fun making this card, because I love interactive cards and  creating cute scene  on them.
I hope you enjoy it too and thank you for passing by!
Silvia.

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…

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 …

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&#…
