Thinking of you

Hi, BRI friends!

It's Dana here. I can't believe it is already the last day of January! Time flies too fast... With saying good bye to this month, I have a lovely card to share with you today. Here is what I came up with. (Listed supplies are in the bottom of post.)


To start, I stamped cupids from Pretty Pink Posh Cupid Friends stamp set with Altenew Permanent Black Crisp Ink and colored them copic markers. I applied Nuvo Ebony Black and Morning Dew to their eyes and heart arrows. I also added sparkles to their wings using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen Clear Overlay. I then fussy cut them using scissors.

Before getting to background, I die cut scalloped heart from white card stock using Pretty Pink Posh Love Shaker Dies. I then started to blend background using Distress Oxide inks and Mini Blending Tool. From bottom to top, I used Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral and Antique Linen.

I spritzed water and let it dried. I then splattered white acrylic paint with water using paint brush again over the background. I added more white dots using Signo white gel pen, too.


Next, I stenciled my distressed background. First, I placed heart die cut on the center and traced its inner line lightly with pencil. I then fixed background panel and MFT Radiating Rays Stencil on my craft mat using washi tape and sponged Distress Oxide Ink, Wild Honey, Antique Linen and Abandoned Coral. Then, I erased pencil line and glued heart die cut as shown using glue pen and tape.


To finish, I stamped sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh Thoughtful Greetings Stamp Set using Versafine Onyx Black and mounted background panel on A2 sized white card base.

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

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 …
