More Breathe Rainbow Inspiration!

Happy Wednesday, Butterfly Reflections Inkers! Lindsay here on the blog today sharing a card using the new Breathe Rainbows Stamp Set. This set is exclusive to the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store and it's AMAZING! It's so super cute and the illustrations are just amazing! 

Here is the Blog Hop that was done earlier this month. Unfortunately I didn't get a card done in time for the hop but I'm hoping to give you some inspiration now!

I have been obsessed with Mister Sloth (my choice is name) since I first saw a preview for this stamp set, so of course my first card had to feature him as the star of the show. I started this card using Bristol Smooth Card stock and cut out a Stitched Rectangle using a Lawn Fawn die. I then cut a circle out of masking paper using Mama Elephant Basic Circle Dies and placed that over my stitched rectangle panel. 

It's hard to see in these pictures but I did some light ink blending into the masked circle area using Distress Oxide Ink and the MFT Cloud Stencil. Looking at these pictures now I wished I had ink blended a bit darker in order to see the clouds a bit more, but oh well! That's okay. 

I stamped Mister Sloth, two clouds, and the rainbow from the Breathe Rainbows stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and embossed the images using Brutus Monroe Icicle Embossing Powder. I then got out my Distress Inks and got to watercoloring! I went with a rainbow sloth, which is clearly a logical choice. I felt that it was necessary considering the name of the stamp set is Breathe Rainbows and it's finally summer, so it's fitting, I suppose. I finished off the watercolored images with a  Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Pen, which I tried to photograph. We all know photographing glitter/shimmer/sparkle is next to impossible but I hope you can see some of the shimmery goodness that these pens leave behind.

I stamped my sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh Encouraging Greetings using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and my Mini Misti to ensure no sentiment stamping disasters on my cloud ink blended background. After arranging the images and adhering everything with Foam Tape, my card was complete!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you can get some inspiration and have as much fun as I did with this special stamp set.

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
