Warmest Wishes

Hello everyone! It's Ashley! I'm so excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog as a guest designer! I've missed it here!

Today I have a super soft and sweet holiday card featuring new stamps from Sunny Studio!

I just love using unexpected and nontraditional colors on holiday cards! I started by using the hills and trees stamp from Sunny Studio Scenic Route. I covered that up with some masking paper, then stamped the houses from the same set before covering those up with masking paper too. Now everything except the sky is protected and ready for ink blending!

I used Distress Oxides in Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet, and Spun Sugar for my sky. I added snow with Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrops stamped in VersaMark and embossed with white. I just love how it turned out! I removed the masking paper and colored the background with Copics, before die cutting the panel with the largest Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle. I used a bit of Gina K Glitz Gel in White on the rooftops and trees to give a sparkly, snow covered look.

I stamped several snowmen from Sunny Studio Feeling Frosty in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored with Copics, using a white gel pen for highlights. I attached my panel to white cardstock and arranged my snowmen at the bottom of my scene, popping a few up with foam squares for dimension. To finish, I stamped the "warmest wishes" sentiment from Sunny Studio Feeling Frosty with Versamark and embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

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

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 vel
