You're a Cheeky Monkey

Hey, everyone! It's Lynnea and I'm back with another card....or five! I made a set of four simple cards and one that's a bit more stepped up! Would you like to see them? Let's start with the main attraction.




Isn't this little monkey just the cutest?! I mean....really. He is from the My Favorite Things Cheeky Monkey Stamp Set. And the shop has matching dies, too! Since I wanted to do some Copic coloring I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp my monkey and his bananas. I stamped the monkey on a small piece of cardstock that I found and I stamped my banana background on a piece of heavy weight cardstock. I colored my images using various colors of Copic markers. I used scissors to cut out my little guy, but like I said there are matching dies so you could definitely take advantage of that!




After I colored my banana background I used some Fossilized Amber Distress Ink to give my piece some color. I die cut it using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also cut a smaller rectangle and stamped my sentiment in the middle. I added quite a bit of glitter with a clear Wink of Stella glitter marker and with a Gelly Roll Stardust pen. I added my sentiment rectangle and the little monkey with foam squares and that's it! Super simple!




Since I had my supplies out all ready, I thought I would make some more cards. I make a lot of duplicates of my cards and make them into sets. My family and friends do a lot for me and a little card set is a great way to say "thank you" to them! I made four more cards. I stamped and colored my monkeys the same way and popped them up with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment right onto the card. These really were so easy to make! And you could use any image at all to make a quick matching card set!




I hope you've enjoyed these cards! Head over to the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Shop to get all of your crafty things...including these monkeys from My Favorite Things! I'll see you all soon!

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 …
