Gina K Designs

Happy Friday Friends!! It is Dana here today sharing a card perfect for Easter, or anytime. I am using the Gina K Wreath Builder Stamp & Stencil for my project. Are you familiar with these products? They are so clever and easy to use!


I started by placing my Gina K Wreath Builder Template Stencil in my Original MISTI. Next, I placed a 4x4 inch piece of white cardstock in the stencil. I used the Gina K Original Wreath Builder Stamp Set for all of my floral images. I just kept adding more and more images to build my desired wreath. The stencil keeps everything lined up perfectly, so easy! Here is what my wreath looked like as I was building it:


To make my A2 card, I cut my 4x4 wreath in half. I attached my wreath to the top and bottom of my card mat. Next, I added a white and gray strip of cardstock to the center of my card (this covers the gap that was created from cutting my wreath in half).


For my sentiment, I used the Hello Bluebird Spring Banner Script Stamp Set stamped onto a die cut circle. I attached my sentiment to my card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I attached everything to my A2 card base. While I used an Easter sentiment, any sentiment you might need will work great with this technique.


For my square card I followed the same steps as above. Though rather than cutting my wreath in half to make an A2 card, I created a 4x4 square card.  Here is my completed wreath:


I once again used the Spring Banner Script Stamp Set for my sentiment. Though this time I attached everything to a square card base.


Have you tried the Gina K Wreath Builder? It is definitely something you need in your card making supplies. It obviously works great with the Gina K Wreath Builder Series, but the stencil also works great with any small image. You will have fun using it!! 

Wishing you all a Wonderful Easter weekend.

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 …
