New Lawn Fawn--Ocean Shell-Fie!



Good morning, everyone!  Amy Copeland here, guest designing for the blog.  I got my New Release Lawn Fawn goodies from the store and had to start designing with them right away.  Everything is so, so cute--Lawn Fawn is top notch.



I started out by stamping my sea creatures, rocks, and seaweed from the adorable Ocean Shell-fie stamp set with Copic Friendly black ink onto Neenah heavy weight white cardstock, colored them with Copic Markers, then used the coordinating Ocean Shell-fie Lawn Cuts to die cut them out.  Once they were cut out, I used a Black Glaze Pen on all of the open eyes.

Next, I stamped the bubbles onto Vellum with Versamark ink, sprinkled on white embossing powder, and heat set it with a heat tool .  I then die cut out the bubbles.  With all of my critters and accessories ready to go, I started on the Camera.  I die cut the base out of Narwhal card stock, then the shutter button, "light," and "lens" out of Black Licorice cardstock--it looks like she is out of that, but click "Put me on the waiting list," and you will be notified when she gets it back in stock.  I heat embossed the "You take the best shell-fies" sentiment onto the camera and partially-inked the Happy Birthday sentiment (it originally said Happy Birthday To You) from Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments onto the lens and heat embossed that.



 For the background panel, I used a stitched rectangle die like this one to cut a panel out of white cardstock, then used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders dies to cut a piece out of the bottom for my "sand."  I then used Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink and a blending brush to apply ink to the "sand."  I dotted a Copic marker onto the sand for a little texture, but you could also use a darker brown Distress Oxide, a tiny bit of water, and splatter the ink onto the cardstock with a tiny paintbrush for the same, a-little-less-uniform effect.  The "water" was created using the same blending brush and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide as well as Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide.  Once the "water" part was blended, I used a Mini Mister to spritz a little water on the background and picked up the excess water with a paper towel for a little bit of a textured effect.


Finally, I pulled it all together by cutting another panel out with the stitched rectangle for a base for my scene.  I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to first adhere the "water" portion of the scene to the white panel.  Then I used the same adhesive to glue down the camera, lens, "light" circle, "lens," and shutter button.  Once the camera and components were in place, I put a strip of Lawn Fawn 1/8" Double Sided Tape along the bottom of the white panel, ran a little of my Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive along the back of the "sand" piece, and adhered the sand piece down.  I used the Nuvo Deluxe again to adhere the rocks, seaweed, and bubbles.  I adhered all of my critters with Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Foam Squares for a little dimension.  The final touch was a coat of Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen--Clear Overlay on the jellyfish and clam shells, as well as a coat of Glossy Accents on the tiny camera lens and bubbles.



After my card front panel was assembled, I adhered the entire thing onto an A2 size (4 1/4 x 5.5 inch) card base.  Thank you for joining us today here on the blog and hope my project inspires you to create an underwater ocean scene card.  We hope you come back soon for more inspiration!  :)

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 …
