Sunny Studio Stamps - Tropical Paradise

Hey folks!

I am so excited to be back to share a few card with you all! I gotta be honest peeps, I love how my card turned out, but not a big fan of my pictures. In fact, I was getting ready to do new ones, when I realized there was water allll over my craft room floor. Ruh-ro Raggy. So. No new pics, but it's cool, I hope you enjoy my cards anyway!

For my cards today, I used the Sunny Studio Stamps Tropical Paradise Stamp Set. I simply adore the shape of these images.

The first thing I did was, I made masks of all the images with Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper, then stamped my scenes with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink on all of my cards.

On my first card, I decided I wanted to use colors, that I normally wouldn't. Ya know, so I could color teal flamingos. Really, I grabbed an old color wheel I have and chose Copic colors that worked together.

When all of my images were colored, I masked everything off again. Then, on the top half of the panel, I added a light layer of Ranger Distress Ink in Wild Honey with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I kept my masks in place and using the same ink I placed the My Favorite Things One Way Chevron Stencil and when over it again. The bottom half, I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.

I used the same Stencil on a Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Cardstock Card Base and some vellum with Versamark Ink. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Flamingo Stamp Set and to finish it off I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops for embellies.

My second card has pretty much the same layout as the first, but I added the pineapple stamp behind the flamingos and kept the colors much more traditional.

I decided not to do any ink blending or add embellishments on this. Instead, I used a silver-y glitter gel pen to add some details and called it a day. You could also use a white gel pen like the Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen.

For my last card, I changed it up a bit. This time, I stamped my images on some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock, but instead of watercoloring, I used colored pencils. You could used any brand you like. If I were to do this again, I would definitely go for some coloring with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Again, I used some Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Card Stock for my card base, but before I attached the panel, I used the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Stitched Strip Die on the card base.

To finish off my card, I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen to the highlights of the images.

That's it! Thanks so much for stopping in to see me today and as always, I hope you enjoyed my cards today!

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
