Spooky snow globe with Peter

Hi everyone! It's October already which means I'm fully into making Halloween cards. It's my absolute favorite theme for card making!

I had so much fun making this spooky snow globe. I used the Magic Iris Snow Globe Add-On from Lawn Fawn to make the globe. I just popped back in the circle that normally is the opening for the Magic Iris.

For the base color I ink blended some Speckled Egg Distress Oxide and blended around it with Wilted Violet. I added some metallic watercolor splatters as well as distressing it with water.

I cut the base out of glitter cardstock and decorated it with the word 'Boo!' that I cut using the Olivers Stitched ABC's. If you don't have the exclamation mark from the Olivers Stitched 123's set, you can cut up an 'I' to make one yourself.

I used my Quickie Glue Pen to add some glitter to the bottom of the letters. I used some chunkier glitter on part of the edges of the globe too.

The last thing I did to decorate the globe is adding a cobweb using the Cute Cobweb from Lawn Fawn. Of course I also added a little spider!

I added some ghosts from Booyah and pumpkins from Pick of the Patch to make a little scene.

I made a background by using the Plaid Stencils from Lawn Fawn to make a striped background with some fun Halloween colors. I used Distress Oxide for that. I made this card before I saw the new BRI moodboard, but this card fits perfectly, ghehe!
I die cut it with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables so that I have a little border visible from my kraft card base.

I hope I could inspire you to get crafty yourself and I hope you have a great rest of the week. As always, feel free to ask me any questions. You can find me on Instagram. I will be happy to help!

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
