Adore you

Hi Everyone! Ali here for my first of two posts this week! Loving it here and thanks so much for all the kind & welcoming comments!  
I have a delicate card for you today made using some My Favorite Things products from the huge range available at the Butterfly Reflections Ink Store.  The combination of the soft background, abstract heart design and florals is perfect!!

I began this card by creating an Alcohol Ink background - using copics and blending solution (I used V95 and V95 & C5 - 'squiggled' them on acetate, dripped blending solution on and then layed on my glossy photo paper shiny side down, I repeated until I had the desired result).  I then stamped flowers and leaves from the More Rustic Wildflowers and In Bloom stamp sets using Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves.

 I then die cut the Abstract Heart die from silver foil cardstock leaving some of the triangle negative pieces in place. I stamped the "I simply adore you" from the More essential Sentiments stamp set onto a grey cardstock strip in versamark ink, white embossed it and heat set. I trimmed the sentiment into two sections.

To finish off, I trimmed the background piece to fit on a white card-base, used 3d foam to adhere the heart, flowers & leaves, and sentiment. Some Pretty Pink Posh droplets in the centre of the flowers completed the look. A delicate, pretty card - hope you enjoyed it and I will see you here again soon!

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

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

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
