Forest fairies with Annemarijn

Hi crafty friends!  

Today I'm back with a cute interactive magical forest scene to share with you. I just discovered the swish 'n pop pull tab and now I want to use it on every card I make. It's easy to put together and it gives a great little extra on the card so I love it!

I started with stamping al the images with memento tuxedo black ink on white cardstock. I used the fairies and flowers from fairy friends, the house from frosty fairy friends and the little squirrels from let's go nuts. Next, I cut and colored the images with copic markers. For the wings of the fairies I used some quickie glue pen and dipped them in some prisma glitter. I think I'm addicted to prisma glitter.. But I just love the look so much.

Next I cut a piece of watercolor wishes paper to 4 1/4"x 5 1/2 inch for the background. Then I die cut the puffy cloud backdrop, lift the flap tree backdrop and the stitched hillside borders from white cardstock. From the puffy cloud backdrop I cut the lower cloud apart so I can use it upside down as a tree. I used distress oxide mowed lawn and twisted citron to color it. I also cut the lift the flap tree backdrop apart to use one tree and colored the tree with distress oxide gathered twig. I also die cut the swish 'n pop pull tab for the fairy that's coming from behind the little fairy house. Then I assembled everything together. I hide the fairy behind the house and when you pull the swish 'n pop pull tab she comes out for an extra surprise. Last I die cut the everyday sentiment banner and made it green with twisted citron and stamped a sentiment on it. 

I hope you like my card this week and see you next week with a new card! Have a great week.

Lots of love,

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

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
