Dreams Come True

Hello Hello!! I'm thrilled to be back on the BRI blog to share another fun slimline card featuring the adorable mice from Lawn Fawn. 

First I cut two pieces of Bristol smooth cardstock using Trinity Stamps stitched card panel. I used one of the panel to cut out the hill to ground my images. For this I used Lawn Fawns slimline stitched hillside borders. Next I ink blended one of the panel using distress oxide inks in seedless preserves, victoria velvet, and tattered rose and for the hill I used mowed lawn and shabby shutters. To add interest I diluted the same colors with some water and splattered it on the panels using a small brush. I set the panels to dry while I start coloring the images.

I used all the mice from the Dandy Day stamp set and one mice (sitting down) from Crazy Antics, the mushrooms are from Oh Gnome. I colored all the images using copic markers and cut them out using their coordinating dies. For the sentiment I wanted to create a big word sentiment so I went with "DREAMS." I cut it out using the Oliver's Stitched ABCs. I cut it 3x on white cardstock and once on a pastel teal cardstock. I love the stiches and font that this die creates, it's so perfect for creating any phrase you can think of. The rest of the sentiment I heat embossed on gray cardstock. Normally I would embossed on black card stock but I wanted a softer look for my card. 

Next assembly time, I adhered my images and sentiment using glue or foam tape. I added a few highlights using white gelly roll pen. Then finally I attached the card panel onto scalloped card panel cut from teal cardstock. 

Thanks so much for sticking with me through the end. I hope you enjoyed this card. Have a wonderful day!!

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
