Love You To The Core

Hi all! Happy Saturday!  Kari with you today to share this card featuring the adorable Pure Innocence girl from My Favorite Things, and she's all about feeling the Fall Season and eating her apples!  I love this little set!  Not only it is a great set for Fall themed cards, but for Teachers as well!!


I couldn't wait to ink her up and color her with my Copic markers!  I even got ambitious and paper- pieced her little jacket!!  I started out this card by die cutting a white card stock circle from the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scallop Circles dies, and stamped my main image from the MFT set Love You To The Core, and inked it up using my favorite black ink for Copic coloring - Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink.  I did some super duper easy coloring, and then stamped this image again  - once for my mask that I will use later, and again onto a piece of pattern paper for the jacket portion of the image.  I carefully used my detail scissors to cut out the jacket.  To give it a finished edge, I just used my black felt tip marker, and that really cleans up that white core on the pattern paper.  Before I adhered the pattern paper to the image, I used my mask that I created, and I carefully covered up the stamped image on my die cut circle with the mask, and I used my blending tool and some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add some color to the background for a sky.  Once I was happy with that - I removed my mask, and then added my pattern paper pieces.  This REALLY made this part of the image pop!!  


To finish up my card - I die cut another piece of pattern paper with a Right At Home Stitched Rectangle die - added that to my white A2 card base.  I added some foam adhesive to the back of my focal panel to give it some dimension.  For my sentiment - I used a banner die ( that I really don't know the manufacture) that I love, and die cut some red card stock.  I prepped the surface of the banner piece with my anti static powder tool, and stamped my sentiment with VersaMark ink and then coated it with White Hero Arts embossing powder.  Then, used my heat tool to set.  Love how the white embossed sentiment pops off that red!!  I also added some foam adhesive to my sentiment banner strip and added that to my card.  For a final touch, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the apples to give them some shine!  




Hope your weekend is off to a great start!!  Hope to see you back here soon!!

Kari

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…

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 …

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&#…
