Uptown Perry Sparkler & Winner

Hello there and welcome to Thursday at the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. I'm Janette and not only do I get to bring you another sparkly treat today, but I get to announce the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens winner, yay!

Without further ado, da da da dah.... The Rafflecopter winner chosen through over at is Brandi R.! Congratulations to you! Your entry was verified and you have been emailed in order to claim your prize. Congratulations again!

Meet Uptown Perry and her Laptop by Stamping Bella. Isn't she the cutest?

To begin, stamp Perry and the sentiment on heavyweight cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamped another Perry on Inkadinkado Masking Paper and then fussy cut it down with an 1/8 inch margin. Then align the mask over the cardstock image using a bright light behind them.

Next, use the Winnie & Walter Multigrain stamp for the wood floors in Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. The stamp is not wide enough for the whole panel so, if you look closely, you can see a inconspicuous seam beneath Perry's feet.

With Perry's mask still in place, and a Post-It Note or two over the newly stamped wood floor. The My Favorite Things Stitched Chevron Background stamp serves as a perfect wallpaper when stamped in a muted ink color like Momento London Fog.

Remove the masks and get your coloring on! All stamping inks used on this card are Copic friendly, as that was my medium of choice. Copic markers are alcohol based and can make some inks bleed a bit, so you'll want to be cautious of that. Copic colors for this card are: Hair E34, E37, E59 / Skin E51, E53, E35, R20 and a touch of 0 Colorless Blender over the glasses / Blouse Y13, Y17, T0, T1 / Denim B34, B37, B39 / Computer T2, T3, T4 / Pear YG01, YG17, YG67 / Chair R24, R29, R39 / Wallpaper & Outline of Chair T1, T3 / Floor E34.

The Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen provides ample glitz and glam to the cushy chair. Pop the primary panel onto a secondary framing panel in black, also coated with Clear Sparkle. Lastly, adhere the finished panel onto a card base. I prefer to use the Plus line adhesives. They provide super stickability (is that a word?) and do not string off like some other brands do.

As always, thank you for stopping by the BRI blog. Feel free to click through any links provided in this post to take you to the mentioned item in the BRI shop or click here to go straight to the shop.

Again, congratulations to Brandi R. on winning the 2 sparkle markers! Have a fantastic day all!

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
