Fresh Cut Floral Hello

Good morning, Jess here!  I have been waiting (semi-patiently, ha!) for the WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals and accompanying stamp sets to come back in stock and I snagged them as soon as Vanessa got them into the shop!  These stamps and dies create gorgeous floral arrangements!

One of my favorites flowers are lilacs and these stamps looked just like a fresh branch off my tree!  I die-cut several flowers from Fresh Cut Florals and then stamped the three layers with Hero Arts shadow inks in Soft Purple, Passionflower, and Grape Juice.  The stems were stamped in Altenew Evergreen ink.  Next I die-cut a container from Fresh Cut Containers and stamped the watering can in Pumice Stone distress ink.  I used watercolor paper for the watering can because I was hoping the inking would be a little uneven to give depth and dimension without having to try too hard! ;)

To finish the card I stamped a few more flowers and grasses on the card panel behind the container but I should have stamped them taller because the lilacs ended up being taller than I realized.  I arranged the lilacs and the container on the card and adhered them into place.  I stamped the sentiment from Fresh Cut Florals with Hero Arts Grape Juice ink and then tied a piece of purple twine around the bottom of my card.  I trimmed the panel and adhered it to a lavender A2 top-folding card base!

I can see infinite combinations and cards with these sets and I can't wait to have a little more time to create more arrangements!  Thanks so much for visiting and see you next 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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …

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 will work the same.  It&#…
