I'm Here For You

Hi, BRI friends!
It's Dana here coming back with another Wednesday inspiration. For today, I made a card using five Altenew products with 5 techniques. Isn't it so fun? :) Here is what I came up with.

Dry embossing and Die cutting

To start, I dry embossed A2 sized white card stock with Altenew Cube Cover Die. For dry embossing, I sandwiched embossing pad, paper, cover die from bottom to top between acrylic pads and ran it through die cutting machine.

I then die cut circle frame using Altenew Create-A-Wreath Dies two times from dry embossed panel and white woodgrain paper. I taped woodgrain frame as shown.


Next, I stamped each layers of yellow bird from Altenew Birds of a Feather Stamp Set using dye inks and die cut it with coordinating die. I stamped bird's eye with grey dye ink and drew more details using Copic multiliner, Uni white gel pen and Nuvo Crystal drops Morning Dew.

Heat embossing and Watercoloring

I heat embossed flowers and leaves from Altenew Happy Bloom stamp set using Altenew Rose Gold Crisp embossing powder and die cut them using coordinating die set.

I watercolored them with Mijello Mission Gold watercolor paints. I then started to watercoloring for background. At this time, I used Gansai Tambi Watercolor paints. With sufficient water, I applied pigments onto watercolor paper using wet on wet technique. Before dried it completely, I added waterbrush stroke with only clean water slightly and created wave-look scene. Once dried, I gold heat embossed sentiment from Altenew Birds of a Feather Stamp Set using Altenew Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.

I glued watercolor panel onto white card base and foam mounted the dry embossed panel on it. I then foam mounted again all elements as shown in the picture. I finished off this card by embellishing droplets.

I 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&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
