Love You So Much!

Hello, friends! Emily Midgett here doing a guest post. I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend! 

On to my project. The Winnie and Walter florals are so gorgeous... so versatile. There are several floral sets, but they mix and match seamlessly. The Elsa's Flora set contains more Christmas-y images, but there are also some stunning roses and camellias, as well as some great berry sprays. Anna's Flora contains less seasonally-specific flowers, but they are all drawn in the same style, so it makes combining sets look seamless! I used a combination of the two sets to do some no-line watercoloring.

To start with, I chose which flower I wanted to be at the forefront of my bouquet, then stamped it on the watercolor card stock in Antique Linen Distress Ink (if you don't have Antique Linen, any very light ink will do). I then stamped the rest of the bouquet, making certain to wipe off any ink on the stamp that was going to overlap on my main flower. After I had finished stamping all of the flowers, berries, and foliage, it was time to get watercoloring. I used the Zig Clean Color markers and a wet paintbrush, and because I used such a light shade of ink to do the stamping, none of the stamped lines are visible. I chose a pink, peach, and fuchsia color scheme for this spray, but I think this spray would look gorgeous in any color combo!

For the greeting, I chose to use the Hero Arts Love Stamp n Cut die and stamp set combo. I die cut the "love" from shimmery white card stock. After popping up my watercolored panel on a lavender card base and adding a strip of glitzy pink glitter paper, I adhered my die cut and used my MISTI to perfectly place the stamp for the greeting. I used a pale gray Zig marker to add a bit of shading to the sides of some of the die cut letters, just to add a little more emphasis to the white die cut on the white background. The final touch was to add some Apricot Blush sequins from Lucy Abrams to add some texture and sparkle. 

I hope you've enjoyed this project! I've so enjoyed being allowed to come back to guest post. Thanks, Vanessa! Hope the rest of your weekend is fabulous. 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
