I Love You a Latte

Hi, BRI friends! It's Dana from Dana G.Crafts and I'm so glad to meet you here as a design team member. Thank you so much for having me, Vanessa!

My first DT creation I'd like to share today is shaker card. Putting multi shakers in one card is one of my crafty major and here is what I came up with :)


To begin, I stamped coffee cup from Avery Elle Cool Beans stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black onto bristol paper and stamped one more onto Inkadikado Stamping Masking Paper. I fussy cut masked image using scissors and adhered it on the stamped image.

I then masked background panel using wide post-it and ink blended with Lawn Fawn dye ink. I used Minty Fresh (top left), Peach Keen(top right), Guava(bottom left) and Sugarplum(bottom right). I repeated this process 4 times.


Next, I die cut cups using coordinating die set, Avery Elle Cool Beans Elle-ments for shaker window. I colored cup images with copic markers. I then traced window part using pencil on another A2 sized birstol paper. With this guidline, I watercolored 4 backgrounds using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and water brush.

Now, it's time to build shakers. I glued acetate behind stamped panel and mounted foam adhesive. I placed clear sequins on each parts of watercolor panel and combined two panels. Oh....yes perfect! Whenever I successfully combined different panels without any mistakes with perfect degree, I feel very fresh! hehe.


For sentiment, I die cut two hearts from yellow paper and vellum using Altenew Halftone Hearts Nesting Dies and Altenew Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine. If you want see more about this die cutting machine, please stop by HERE (my stop of Altenew January Release Blog Hop). I glued them each other and stamped sentiment from AE Cool Beans stamp set using LF Lobster dye ink.

I stamped small hearts from same stamp set and die cut them, too. For adding texture, I applied Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss Red Berry to both. After dried completely, I popped up all elements using foam adhesive. To finish off, I embellished Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix on the shaker window.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Love,
Dana

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 …
