Perk Up

Good morning, everyone! It's Cassie here  :) It's time to perk up because we are half way through the week and it's almost the weekend! Today I've got a cutie of a card using some Greeting Farm stamps.

I started by stamping the two coffee cups from the Perk Up stamp set on some Neenah Solar White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I colored them all in and fussy cut them out. I colored the hot cups very similar, but the cold cups I colored to be strawberry, caramel, and chocolate frappes! Yum, am I right?! I ran my black Copic over the edges of each cut out cup and then I took out my Fun Faces 2 stamp set from Your Next Stamp. I love these faces from the set because you can really give anything life when you combine them with other images.
I added some white gel pen details to the cups and set them aside to work on the next steps. I die cut the largest rectangle from the Lawn Fawn Large Stiched Rectangle Stackable set. I use this set on nearly every card. Next I cut a strip that would fit across the card panel and all the cups would fit across it. To add some detail I die cut the dotted line from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders set on both the top and bottom. I added some Antique Linen Distress Ink to the small strip and Walnut Stain to the stitched rectangle. I splattered some water on the Walnut Stain to add some bleached splotches.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment in the bottom center of the card, and stamped the steam with VersaMark so I could heat emboss it with white embossing powder. I cut those out and put all the pieces together. I hope you enjoyed the card for today! I know I had fun making it :) Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon with another card!

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 …
