On my mind.

I recently ordered the Lawn Fawn reveal wheel die from the shop. I L-O-V-E it. Making cards with little surprises is so much fun!



I made the top layer of this card using the new Lawn Fawn cloud stencil and tumbled glass distress oxide ink. I want to show a picture of just this step because that stencil is magical. The clouds it creates are so light and dreamy:



Next, I created my reveal wheel. I do have the handy reveal wheel templates, but I chose to trace the marks onto my wheel with pencil for this card because I knew my stamps would extend beyond the template. If I just use small images or sentiments, those templates are the way to go! Once I stamped my images, I erased my pencil marks and colored the images with Copic markers.


My inspiration for this card was what's on my mind ... my family, love and ... coffee! Ha! Truth! I used the following Lawn Fawn sets on this card:  science of love (stamps/dies), a bug deal (stamps/dies), holiday party animal (stamps), and a birdie told me. To put the reveal wheel images into the thought bubble, I used the reveal wheel arch die on the thought bubble (pretty much creating my own "border" for the arch window).


I added details to my images with black and white gel pens, as well as dots of gold watercolor paint on the chrysalis. I used foam tape and Lawn Fawn card stock to put the card together.  



Here are two other reveal wheel cards I've made recently (my first and second attempts at reveal wheel cards, respectively!):


I used Lawn Fawn's a bug deal and fairy friends stamp sets with the reveal wheel circle add-on dies and grassy border die to create this card, which circles through the monarch butterfly life cycle!


I used Lawn Fawn's a bug deal (stamps/dies), fairy friends (stamps/dies) and Say What? Pets (stamps/dies) stamp sets with the reveal wheel speech bubble add-on die, the Honey Bee salvaged brick background stencil and fired brick distress oxide ink to create this card, which cycles through some cat-themed and hello sentiments.

The moral of this story ... interactive cards are fun (and every family member will receive one for his/her next birthday because I'm excited to play and personalize cards, ha!). Happy weekend, crafty friends!

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 …
