Galaxy card with Annemarijn

Hi crafty friends! Today I'm back on the blog with a galaxy themed card. I love making galaxy's, first I mostly made them with watercolor but now I use distress oxide to make it. I'm going to tell you how I made this card!

I started with making the background for the galaxy background. I always choose some cute distress oxide colors like pink/purple/orange/yellow whatever you like and this time I choose picked raspberry, wilted violet, squeezed lemonade and cracked pistachio. I just blend it a bit random with my ink blending tool and then I blend some blueprint sketch on top and just on the edges a little bit of black soot. Now the ink blending part is done I platter some water on top, some white watercolor for the stars and some liquid stardust for some extra sparkle. I also splattered white watercolor on some black cardstock for the background behind the flaps and let everything dry.

Next I stamped al my images lawn fawn stamp sets out of this world and super star. And colored them with copic markers. Next I cut everything and the galaxy background I cut with the lift flap grid. Next I adhered everything together with glue tube and foam squares. I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink in my misti stamping tool but first I used my powder tool so the embossing powder doesn't stick on the paper where I don't want it. For the 'super stars' I used something different than just white embossing powder. I used glow in the dark embossing powder! And look what a cool effect that gives when it's dark.

I hope you like my card from this week and see you soon with another card! Enjoy your 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

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
