Hope Your Day is Filled with Adventure!

Hi everyone, Ashley here and I am so excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog this month! Today, I'm sharing a fun, magical card featuring some of Lawn Fawn's newest stamps. This card is also inspired by the colour board for the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge. The colour board is filled with deep purples and blues, as well as bright yellow and orange. It was fun to combine these colours in a way I wouldn't have thought of before!


To start, I blended the background using Distress Oxide inks in the following colours, in order from interior to exterior of the circular blend:
I made a simple mask using a piece of scrap paper and a circle die. I blended Squeezed Lemonade into the centre circle. I then covered over that circle with the circle part of the mask, and blended outwards in a circular motion using the above listed colours. I made sure to blend back and forth between the colours to get a nice blend.


Keeping the circle mask over the yellow circle, I applied white pigment ink (Lawn Fawn Yeti ink) through the new Lawn Fawn Starry Sky stencil over the whole background. I also splattered the background with gold paint.

Setting that aside to dry, I stamped out the adorable images from the new Lawn Fawn stamp set Little Dragon. I used My Favorite Things Extreme Black Ink and stamped onto Neenah Solar White paper. I coloured in the images with Copic markers, and fussy-cut them using my scissors.


To finish off the card, I cut three cloud panels out of white glitter cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border dies. I adhered the inked panel onto a white card base, and placed the cloud layers on top using foam, so that each cloud layer is slightly elevated from the last.

I stamped out the first part of the sentiment with Versamark Ink onto small strips of yellow cardstock and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. For the word "adventure," I stamped out the word using individual letters one at a time from Lawn Fawn's Claire's ABCs stamp set onto a small piece of vellum (you could use any letter stamp set here). I stamped a banner image from the Lawn Fawn Bannertastic stamp set around the word, and then heat embossed the whole thing with gold embossing powder. I stuck the banner down onto the cloud layer using double-sided tape.


I adhered the rest of the images using foam squares, and added a scattering of gems around the card for a final embellishment. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my post! To see more of my cards, check out my Instagram account at Ashley Young Paper. The Butterfly Reflections, Ink Instagram account also has great inspiration from loads of other talented designers. And finally, you can re-create this card using supplies purchased at the amazing Butterfly Reflections, Ink shop. I hope everyone has 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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 …

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&#…
