Go Cray Cray with Davina

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a fun interactive card to share with you using new Heffy Doodle products and the July Mood Board. This months mood board is fiery and full of bold bright colors like Hot pink, spiced orange, red and ruby. 

I used these spicy colors, with the addition of some curry yellow, to bring all the little shellfish from the A Little Shellfish stamp set to life. I made a full beach scene with a pull tab, and a crabby Flash Mob party! I’m going to list the steps and products I used to create this card.

Using an A2 sized stitched rectangle I cut a light sky blue panel and 3 panels of Bristol smooth cardstock. I cut two of the panels with LF Stitched Waves  Order dies in staggered heights. I cut the 3rd piece with two LF Stitched Hillside Borders. I cut the first one about halfway up, then used the remaining paper to cut the shorter front hill. I used my blending brushes to ink all of the cut panels with distress oxide inks, then I splattered each with watery ink, glittery perfect pearls and white ink. 

Once dry, I heat embossed my sentiment on the shortest hill, with black embossing powder. Then I used the new Heffy Doodle Slimline Pulltab Dies to cut my notch and pull tab pieces. I used the middle sized slider die and cut the piece from the center of every panel in the same location with the exception of the short embossed front layer. 

Next I stamped all of the images from the set, and 8 crabs. I used the brilliant colors from the mood board to color all of my images, adding in some curry yellow to give a little oomph. I glued my top 4 layers together with liquid glue, and layered my top hill on the top to play with image placement. Using the bulking the images ( except the crabs and presents) I decorated the scene to look fun as is... but I did not glue the lobster down yet. I planned on using him to hide my crabby party. 

Next, I made a cluster of overlapping crabs, gifts, and party hats that would fit behind the hill ( A little bit of the candle would stick out so I used my lobster to cover). I adhered the cluster to the assembled pull tab. Finally, I mounted the top hill onto the top, making sure that the foam tape wasn’t in the way of my crabby party. I mounted my panel onto the cardbase using more foam tape, so that the pull tab could slide easily. I have had such a blast playing with this card, and hope that if you haven’t already, that you check out the new adorable Heffy Doodle Release available at Butterfly Reflection Ink.

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
