You are Awesome!

Hi guys!   It's Kimberly from Kimplete Kreativity back again with you today.   I went super bright and cheery with my card last week, so I thought I'd change it up and go soft and sweet this week!


SUPPLIES:
Vellum 
Gold thread

I stamped and heat embossed the beautiful butterfly from Jane's Doodles' Butterflies stamp set onto vellum and colored within the lines with Copic markers.   I love the stained glass effect!   I colored on both sides of the vellum to intensify the color, but you could color just on the back side for a softer look!  Once completely colored, I fussy cut the butterfly and set it aside to work on the rest of the card.


I die cut a yellow frame and a white frame using the pierced rectangle frames.   I used the interior piece from the white frame as my focal panel, and flicked on some of the Blue Gold color from the Starry Colors palette with a wet paintbrush.  I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment and small butterflies with Versafine ink.   I stamped the sentiment once more on aqua paper and cut out just the word 'Awesome' and placed it over top of the sentiment on my focal panel so that it would have more impact on the card.   As a final touch, I used some gold thread I had on hand to make a "thread nest" for my butterfly to perch on.   I adhered the butterfly with a a few glue dots (added to the center of the body only) so that the wings would have some lift and dimension.     

I hope you've enjoyed my card today!   I'll see you again next week - happy hump day!! :)

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 …
