Hello! Rubeena here featuring two cards where I did minimal stamping. :) Butterfly Reflections Ink is having a sale until July 12 so take advantage of some of the in-stock items now. For these cards, I was inspired by yesterday's technique with embossing paste, stencils, and layers.

Some color combinations are so elegant! White, black, and gold is one of them. I started off with this fun MFT Mix-ability Tiny Triangles Stencil and Dreamweaver Matte Black Embossing Paste and embossed diagonally on white cardstock. using my trimmer, I cut down the piece as shown below. There were no measurements, I went with the flow. :) I taped it down on A2 cardbase with foam tape for dimension.

Next, I die-cut Lawn Fawn's Scripty Congrats Lawn Cuts from metallic gold cardstock and black cardstock. I used Altenew's Doodle Blooms dies to cut out three of the leaves dies and stamped the leaves from Altenew's Doodle Blooms with Delicata gold ink. I also die-cut the small butterfly from WPlus9's Small Butterfly Frame Die from metallic gold cardstock. 

I arranged all the pieces as shown on my card and finished it off with drops of Irresistable Gold Pico Embellisher

What do you think of that texture? Amazing, right?! Love how this turned out. 

My next card is similar but I wanted to be bolder. Red, black, and white is another amazing combination I love. For this one, I used MFT's Bold Paisley Stencil and Avery Elle's Simply Said Amazing Elle-ments Die

I used the same embossing paste, trimmed it down, and taped it to A2 cardbase with foam tape. I decided to add the sentiment diagonally along the embossed piece. I stamped the Doodle Blooms stamp with a red ink over the Delicata gold. 

I finished this one off with gold and red Pico Embellisher dots.

You can see both my cards below. I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration and can use similar techniques! 

Do take advantage of the sale going on right now with Butterfly Reflections Ink. The code is CATSAWAY15 for 15% off all in-stock items except for the newest released sequins in the shop. Enjoy!

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
