Create A Smile - Copic's and Colored Pencils

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a couple of really fun cards with you!

I really enjoy taking one stamp set and try out a couple of different ideas. The Create A Smile Color Your Heart Out Stamp Set is perfect for this. It has loads of Images that you could use with so many different mediums. I dig it.

For my first card, I started by stamping my Images with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink masking some of them off with Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper.

You could totally color these in any colors you want, but I decided to Copic color them in a rainbow.

I stamped the Images down the center of my Card Panel, but I decided to trim down both sides and adhere it to a My Favorite Things Gravel Grey Card Base. I also added a strip of Ranger Metal Silver Foil Tape.

For my second card, I wanted to use the same Image from the Set, but this time, I heat embossed the Hearts with Versamark Ink and Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

I used Tombow Irojiten Color Dictionary Colored Pencils, but you could use any of your favorite colored pencils. I do suggest however, that whatever you decide to use, just make sure that they blend easily.

My Favorite Things Black Licorice Cardstock is what I used for the Card Panel and my Card Base and I covered a two strips of Cardstock with Versamark Ink and Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder and added it them to the card front.

Other than some Clear Wink of Stella, I didn't add anything else to these. These are definitely the type of cards that make an impact all by their lil lonesomes and don't need anything else.

That's it peeps! Easy peasy. I hope you enjoyed my cards today. Be sure to stop by again tomorrow for more crafty fabulousness and as always be sure to stop by the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop and get your hands on something amazing to color!

Until next time!

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
