The Sky's The Limit!

Hey crafty friends!

It’s Julia here - this time with a get well card! Unfortunately my dad was recently in the hospital and I really wanted to make him a happy card that would remind him, that even though he is not feeling well right now - he will soon be happy and "flying again". The adorable images illustrated by Stacy Yacula were just perfect for what I wanted to do! I really hope you like it! The layout with the dream bubble was inspired by a recent card by the incredible Tammy Stark!

First I stamped my images from the My Favorite Things All Tucked In, Sky High and Happy Campers stamp sets onto Transotype Perfect Coloring Paper and colored them in using Copic Markers

After I colored in the mountain range I die cut it with the Hello Bluebird Grassy Knoll die set to create a cloudy edge. Then I also stamped two little clouds from the Lawn Fawn
Village Heroes and Village shops set and cut them out of white cardstock to create the little thought bubbles. I ink blended a background panel using Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Ink and then I also ink blended two pieces of woodgrain cardstock using Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Ink.

I adhered the ink blended panel to a card base measuring 4 1/4 x 8 1/2" and added the woodgrain pieces as well as most of the images using liquid glue. I added the plane and the bed using foam squares.
Then I heat embossed my sentiment from the Sky High stamp set in white and added it with
liquid glue as well!

Finally, I added some shimmer using Stickles!

I really hope you like my take on a get well card!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have an amazing 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

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
