Love is in the air

Good morning!
Alix here to share a birthday + love card with you by using Pretty Pink Posh products. I made this card thinking it is perfect for a friend who has his anniversary and wife's birthday on the same day. I combined Pretty Pink Posh January and March releases to make this card having double meanings.

To begin with my card making, I stamped my images from Pretty Pink Posh Buuny Friends stamp set and Birthday Friends stamp set onto Neenah Solar white 80lbs cardstock paper with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black, then colored them with my copic markers.I used coordinating dies to cut them out and set aside.

To create the background panel, I used a flat brush created some Not So perfect lines onto Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper using Gansai Tambi watercolor paint in #32 red mixed with #10 white, then splatter the same paint over the upper part of the paper. Once all paints were dried, I started to create the shaker window. I used Pretty Pink Posh Love Shaker die to cut the front opening on this background panel and also on a folded A2 card base.

Then I used the same die to cut 4 times from watercolor papers and colored with Gansai Tambi watercolor paint in Pale Aqua. I removed the script "Love" off the center of these die cuts and glued them separately using Multi Medium Matte. I traced a piece of acetate and attached it to the back of heart shape frame, then poured Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and Iridescent Heart Confetti and enclosed them by gluing the top window. During this step, be sure to check a few times to make sure top opening fitting well over the shaker window we created.

Now that my card base and background were all ready. I assembled all images onto the top card. I Added couple of Pretty Pink Posh Jewel in Pink Plush to decorate those cute flowers. Adhered "Love" script die cut to the bottom of the card to finish this card.

Thank you for stopping by today. Bunnies are not only cute for Easter. They are lovely for all occasions. Remember to stretch using your stamps and use your creativity, you will find a lot potentials of yourself! See you on next Tuesday!

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

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
