Warm Winter Wishes by Popsiclesticks

Hello crafty friends, Davina here on the Blog, and I have a pink and raspberry long slimline card to share with you today. I used a Hello Sweetums stamp set called Snowy Smooches and the coordinating dies for all of the images, and new Trinity Stamps dies for the slimline stitched and scalloped layers, and and the stitched hillside.

I really love making slimline cards and the fact that I can get so many images onto my scenes. These new dies make it incredibly easy to put together these unique sized cards. The finished card base is 8.5 x 3.5, which makes it possible to cut both the panel and the cardbase from one piece of paper. For this bright wintery scene I cut the largest image panel from a piece of pink glittery pattern paper I had in my stash. I’ve been all about using my patterned papers these past few months. Then I cut 3 scalloped layers from Bristol smooth cardstock. Two of the layers I cut with stitched hillsides to create my snow, and the 3rd I inked up with Distress Oxide Inks in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.  I splattered some raspberry and white ink across the pink sky then put it aside to dry.

Next I stamped all of my images onto Neenah cardstock with my stamp platform, then got to work Copic coloring. I used shades of pink and green to color everything up, and not wanting my penguins to appear too dark I used a medium gray for their “tuxedos”. I die cut all of my stamped images using the coordinating Snowy Smooches Dies and played with the placement. I decided to add the softest pink edges to my snowy drifts and began attaching my images.

I die cut the Snow Angel Penguin shape from the top layer of snow before attaching that layer with foam tape. Them popped the Snow Angel down so he looked sunken. Then I used a variety of glues to attach all of my images, making sure to add a bit of foam tape to the back of the heads so they don’t sag. I finished up by adding some Wink of Stella to some of the details for some glittery bling.

I mounted my pink paper panel to the cardbase using score tape and attached my scallop layer making sure everything was straight and aligned. I hope you like these pretty pink penguins and thank you for stopping by,
Davina

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 …
