Jump for Joy Wiggly Wobble Card!

 Hi crafty friends! Have you ever made an action wobble card? It's been around for a while and it's a simple concept-- stick an image on a wobbly spring and watch it wiggle jiggle! This cute hedgehog from the oldie-but-goodie Lawn Fawn set Jump for Joy was perfect for my wobbly card today!

You can buy action wobble springs or you can make your own! Here is a short video tutorial I made so you can make your very own action wobble. 

I love the idea of jumping into a pile of fall leaves, but where I live, most of our trees do not change colors and I don't get to make big piles of leaves. So I will just make a fall birthday card about it! There are several stamp sets out there with lovely leaf pile stamps (like Mama Elephant's Jump for Joy) but I decided to use masking to create my own big pile of leaves. I colored all the images with Copic markers, and then I fussy cut the leaves and die cut the hedgehog.

For the background, I first ink blended the sky with Distress oxides, then used a cloudy stencil to add in the clouds with a slightly darker shade. Then I used a paintbrush and splattered my background with Distress mica spray in antiqued bronze. For the grass, I ink blended and splattered with some distress inks.

The good news is that you don't have to make your own action wobble spring because BRI has mini springs and regular sized ones! But if you want to try making one, don't forget to check out my video tutorial!

Lawn Fawn Jump for Joy (and dies)

Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames

Sunny Studio Picket Fence die (for the grass)

Lawn Fawn walnut ink

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
