Sending Smiles...

Hello friends, Chitra here today with couple of card share..
Last week sometime I got an amazing package from Butterfly Reflections Ink. So I suppose its a proper timing to share in my cards with you all here...

Here is my first card, I played with this super fun "Hello Chum" stamp set from Avery Elle...

I started off by creating my background first, I took Tim Holtz water color cardstock and used my Gansai Tambi watercolors  to color in. Once everything was dry I splattered some diluted white and blue watercolor inks and also stamped the water waves, bubbles and small fishies using black licorice ink...
 The image itself is stamped onto Crafters Companion Ultra smooth white cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored with my Copics, I also added some white dots on shark using white gelly roll pen. I added a strip of design paper to one side and then adhered the watercolored panel directly to a white card base. 
 Sentiment is from the same set; it is stamped on a strip red cardstock using VersaMark Pigment ink and embossed using WOW white embossing powder. Finally for embellishment I used some twine, added few sequins and also added glossy accents to the bubble.

Here is a close up:
Isn't that shark so fun with that smirky smile.... I love this set...

 And my second card with my other fav set, this set is called "Cool Cat" from My Favorite Things... 
Of-course I had to make a second card as I got so many new stamps in my happy mail :D



Again I did some water-coloring on Tim Holtz watercolor paper with my Kuretake Gansai tambi watercolors and splattered some diluted white ink once everything was dry...
 The super cute kitty image is stamped on Crafters Companion ultra smooth white cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored with my copics; then I cut it out and added some white dots using my white gelly roll pen and adhered it on the water-colored panel using foam squares. I also added a strip of design paper to one side of the colored panel; everything is added to a white card base using foam squares.
 Sentiment is stamped on a strip of black cardstock using VersaMark Pigment ink and embossed using WOW white embossing powder; adhered it using some foam squares as well, I also used little washi tape. And finally used some sequins to embellish. 

Here is a close up for you:

That's all from me today.. Hope you got inspired to craft and create something beautiful.. :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!


Hugs,
Chitra

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…

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&#…

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 …
