Sending Sunshine Sunflowers


Happy Saturday everyone! It’s Jacquie, back again to share a pretty fall floral card.  Sunflowers are some of my favorite flowers.  I love a bouquet of them in my house, it just feels so welcoming.






My card today is deceptively simple and easy to make.    I stamped this pretty Sunflower image from StrawberryJude Stamps  on a 4 x 5 ¼ piece of white cardstock, using the new Copic friendly ink from Altenew.  This ink is my new favorite ink for alcohol based markers.  It stamps perfect, dark and crisp every time!  I colored the Sunflower with my Copic markers.  I used the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges dies from My Favorite things to create a pretty edge at the top of my card. 




I took an A2 sized piece of Kraft cardstock and put it in my MISTI tool. I stamped the Sunflower image on the edge of my Kraft Cardstock, and then inserted the colored card panel in the MISTI and stamped it a second time so that it would line up from the kraft cardstock on to the white panel.  I stamped around a few sides this way.  I used Altenew Limestone crisp ink, because it is a great neutral to go with this card.  Once I carefully lined up my top stamped layer with my base stamped layer, I glued them together.





I cut a banner using the Lawn Fawn banner die out of white cardstock, and then I colored it with a Copic marker.  Once the ink was good and dry, I stamped the “Sending you Sunshine” greeting on the banner and then adhered it to the card. 
I finished off my card using a few of these droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s it for today!  Be sure to click on the links to find all the products I used.

Have a great weekend!
Peace,

Jacquie

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 …
