Berry Special Birthday by Gladys

Happy Monday! This is Gladys and today I have a berry sweet card to share with you using new products from Lawn Fawn's Spring release. Lawn Fawn always knock it out of the park with their new release! Of course I had to pick up the new mice stamp set called Berry Special. It is super cute and can be combined with previous sets like I did here on my card.

To begin I stamped most of the images from Berry Special and two other mice from Virtual Friends and Bubbles of Joy. I colored them with alcohol markers and used their coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next I cut an A2 panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock for my background panel. I ink blended it with distress oxide inks using colors that match my colored images to give a cohesive look. I started blending the center of the panel with spun sugar using a light hand. Then I used salvaged patina and peacock feathers to add more depth. I splattered the same colors with some water to add more interest. 

To create the little scenes, I used the Peekaboo Backdrop cut from white cardstock 3 times then glued together to give dimension. I arranged all the images onto each frames. Then I used a combination of liquid glue and foam tape to adhere them. I stamped the sentiment in one of the rectangle frame and I was so happy it fit perfectly. To complete the card I added some white highlights using a gel pen and glossy accents on the bee's wings. 

Thanks so much for joining me. Check out the shop for the amazing Lawn Fawn Spring release. Happy shopping! Wishing you all a wonderful week!!

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
