Hello Bluebird Moose and Friends

Hello Butterfly Reflection Inkers! Lindsay Lajola here on the blog today with a fun new stamp set in the latest release from Hello Bluebird. The stamp set I'm using is called Moose and Friends and I also used the coordinating die cuts to cut out my images. 


I stamped all of my images using my Mini MISTI with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which is copic marker safe. When I first get a new stamp set, I like to stamp all the images and color them all, just to get a feel for all the stamp set has to offer. Today, I used almost all of the images on this card, because they're all just so cute I couldn't leave anyone out!


I decided to color the "Hooray" balloons in rainbow order using my stash of copic markers and added some Glossy Accents over the letters with a precision tip to make them look more three dimensional. I did this with all the balloons in the scene as well.


For the background of the card, I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I used the MFT Cloud Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to make the sky part of the background. I masked off the bottom of the card using Purple Tape to keep that white while I inked up the clouds. When the sky was finished, I switched the mask over and used Old Paper Distress Ink to color the ground. 


After adhering all of my images using foam adhesive dots, I added details with a white gel pen and embellished with Nuvo Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze.


I hope you all enjoyed my card today and will check out the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store for all their super cute Hello Bluebird products!

Aloha,
Lindsay

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&#…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …
