Thank You Card Using - Bunny Tea Time - Memory Box Co.

Hello everybody, Nicky back with you today with another sweet card this time using the adorable Bunny Tea Time by Memory Box.



The base of this card is made from Kraft card stock which I am increasingly using because I love both pastel and more vibrantly coloured decorated panels against this contrasting background - just a personal choice of course!

The white panel was ink blended softly using the fabulous Clarity Stencil Brushes to create a focal point using Distress Ink and then the 'thank you' sentiment was stamped repeatedly around the edge in a circle using Ranger Archival Ink.  Any black ink would have sufficed in this application but the Ranger Archival Ink provides such a strong and true black image every time you stamp provided you don't rush it!



Next i stamped up all of my images using the same Archival Ink.  I watercolour 'painted' them using the wonderful Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Watercolor Brush Pen - you'll need a 'detailer' brush pen for such little images such as these.  I die cut everything out and applied them to the panel with dimensional foam tape.



The final touch was to stamp the two little piles of sugar cubes.  I highlighted my images with Uni-Ball Signo White having decided where the light would be hitting them and then I scattered around a few toning sequins.

I hope you are feeling inspired and have a wonderful creative week.  See you 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

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

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
