Somebunny Card!

Hello everyone, this is Nicky back with you again sharing some pastel springtime goodness with this new card featuring the ultra adorable Somebunny Stamp Set by My Favorite Things.



I ink blended a panel ever so delicately in pale pink, yellow and orange using Distress Inks and utilising the amazing Clarity Stencil Brushes.  I die cut the panel using Blueprints #25 by My Favorite Things to provide the stitched edge affect.



I then stamped all of the images from Somebunny including the clouds with archival ink.  The clouds were ink blended in pale blue then  I watercolour painted the bunnies and chicks using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die cut them out.  One of my clouds received a friendly smiley face care of the Rainy Days stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh.



Before adhering the elements with dimensional foam tape I used Copic markers to dot in a little suggestion of ground, pebbles and grass.   I also added some subtle twinkling dots to the sky using a Gelly Roll pen.  The card was finished out with a variety of toning sequins and the blushing cheeks on the little characters were given a dot of Uni-Ball Signo White and the sentiment added.

I hope your Easter and Spring cards are coming together nicely.  Have a happy week of crafting!  See you same time next week and meanwhile you can follow Nicky Noo Cards on Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook.

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
