"Well, hello there!" shadowbox card

Hello there! Silvia's here today sharing a sweet shadoxbox card.

I started die cutting two 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" rectangles from white cardstock and I folded each of them at 5 1/4" and 4 1/2".
I then used the B die from the Hello Bluebird "Strawberry Jam" die set to cut a window in one of the panels and I used some vintage photo Distress Oxide ink to give them a vintage look (I also splattered some liquid ink loosened with water on it).

I stamped images from the Hello Bluebird "Strawberry Jam", "Field Mice" and "Fall Banner Buddies" (for the little bird) stamp sets, I colored them with my alcohol markers and I cut them out (I fussy cut the mice and I used the coordinating dies for the strawberries).
I also die cut two grassy borders with the Hello Bluebird "Grassy Knoll" dies, I ink blended with shabby shutters and evergreen bough Distress Oxide inks and splattered with gold.

To make the background I cut a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square from white cardstock and I colored it using a cloudy stencil and some broken china Distress Oxide ink. I glued on it one of the grassy borders and I attached it to the inside of the shadowbox.

I put all the elements in place and I closed my box using some strong double sided tape.

For the sentiment I stamped the "Well, hello there!" with Versafine onyx black ink on a craft cardstock stripe die cut with Heffy Doodle "Stitched strips of ease" dies.
And this is the final card.

I'm so, so happy of how this card turned out and I hope I have inspired you a bit and maybe you'll make your own one shadowbox card….It's really fun and easy.
Thank you very much for stopping by today.
See you soon.
Hugs, Silvia.


  1. This is a lovely Shadowbox design using Hello Bluebird Stamp products. Beautifully colored, in fact, I wanted to say after taking a long look at the photo's here, that it almost appears to watercolored with alcohol re-inkers. I do see the "flicking" technique of the markers, but it other parts are done so well that it does look like it has been watercolored. Silvia, you did an outstanding job on this and should be very proud of it. It is a nice and unique way to showcase these Bluebird sets.

    1. Susie thank you so much for your kindness and sweet words, you really made my day and out a big smile on my face.

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 th

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 w

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 vel
