Forever And Always

Happy Wednesday, BRI friends!

It's Dana with my final blog post as a part of the Butterfly Reflections Ink design team. I don't believe how quickly the 4 months have flown by. Especially for today, I'm sharing two cards featuring many Altenew products. Let's get started!

I began by die cutting both backgrounds from white card stock using Altenew Dotted Debossing Cover Die. I then stamping layering images from Altenew Garden Treasure Stamp Set.

For my first card, I used Altenew Tea Party, Summer Afternoon and Green Fields Mini Cube Set. I stamped from solid image of bottom layer to top. I then finished off each stampings by inking outlines using the lightest color which I used for the bottom layer.

For small flowers, I stamped them with Memento Desert Sand and colored with Altenew Artist Markers Set B. I then fussy cut all images using scissors and added details to flowers and leaves with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Signo White.

I splattered dark purple watercolor paints from Gansai Tambi Watercolor with water using paint brush to background and let them dried. Then, I stamped sentiment from Altenew More Than Words Stamp Set onto a piece of grey paper and foam mounted it as shown.

I popped up flowers and leaves as well and I used different thickness of foam adhesives for dimension.

For my second card, I used Altenew Sweet Dreams, Cool Summer, Coffee Break Mini Cube Set and Lawn Fawn Hippo Dye Ink. I created flowers and leaves using same process with previous one. I white heat embossed the sentiment from Altenew Forever and Always Stamp Set onto dark grey paper and foam mounted it as shown.

To finish, I embellished Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst Jewels and Sea Glass Jewels to each cards and adhered each panels to A2 sized top folding card base.

Here are more pics.

I hope you enjoyed these cards. Thank you SO much for reading my posts and supporting me for last 4 months.

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…
