Spotlight Coloring with Lawn Fawn!

Hello again, Butterfly Ink-ers!   Kimberly here to share a card using some more Lawn Fawn goodness!   I can't get enough of Lawn Fawn's cute stamps.  Did you know you can pre-order the new release over at the BRI store?   Pre-orders are open until tomorrow, July 28th!  I did some damage, let me tell ya!   Lol!

Fun Foam

I wanted to do some spotlight coloring with the super cute Color My World Stamp set, so I began by tracing a heart shape onto my cardstock lightly with pencil.   I stamped the crayon from Color My World and the paintbrush and heart from Chirpy Chirp Chirp all over my cardstock, being sure to stamp all along the edge of my traced heart so as to keep the shape recognizable.  Once I was finished stamping, I cut out the heart shape with an X-acto knife and colored it in with Copic markers, adding a bit of glitter with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.

I cut two more heart shapes from a piece of yellow fun foam using my X-acto knife, and then mounted the colored piece on top of them for some fun dimension.  I love how the yellow peeks through on the sides!  I mounted the cardstock piece to a piece of black cardstock, and then replaced the heart back in it's spot.

The sentiment was stamped on a piece of paper from the Fun in the Sun paper pad and heat embossed.   To make it stand out a bit more,  I mounted it to a piece of black cardstock before adhering it in the center of the heart.  

I hope you've enjoyed my card today!   See you again next week!

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

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
