Persian Beauty

Hello Crafty Friends!

 Put simply - I adore this stamp set! Persian Motifs from Altenew - beautiful images, so easy to colour and the colour combinations you can use for this flower are endless!
This stamp set looks stunning coloured with Polychrolo Pencils on Kraft card (by now you will know how much I love kraft card!!) and re-stamped and embossed in gold embossing powder.
I began this card by stamping the 3 flower images from the set, using my original Misti, with Momento Potters Clay ink (a light distress ink will word too). IMPORTANT: keep your stamps in your Misti where they are - later you will go back and re-stamp the images, so they need to stay in place!

Next I coloured the images using Polychromos. When the colouring was done, I placed the card back into my Misit and re-stamped the images with Versamark Ink, then gold embossed. I then die cut them with the corresponding dies.
I made a frame from green cardstock with my mft Stitched Rectangles Stax Dies and coloured this with my Polychromo's too (I used a water brush to blend the colours a bit more).
I then assembled the frame (adhered with 3D foam) and flowers as shown onto a kraft card-base. I stamped a sentiment from a label stamp set on kraft card and cut-out to a strip. I adhered this to the front of the card with 3D foam. A finishing touch was to colour the flowers with the Nuvo Glitter Gloss pen.

Hope you enjoyed this card and thanks for joining me again!

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
