Joyful Heart Bears

Hi Crafty Friends! I'm still on a roll making Valentine's Day cards! Today, I have a sweet slimline card, featuring Joyful Heart Bears from My Favorite Things.

To begin, I cut a card base to 7 X 8 1/2" from heavy white cardstock, and scored at 3 1/2" on the 7" side. Next, I cut a rectangle panel from Bristol smooth cardstock using the Slimline Stitched Card Panels.  I ink blended the panel using Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I spattered the panel with clean water, and then some watered down white acrylic paint with a paintbrush, and set aside to dry.

Next, I stamped the images from the Joyful Heart Bears Stamp Set onto Bristol smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. All images were colored with Copic markers in the following colors:
Bears: E30, E31, E34, E35, R30, R00, R20
Balloon: Rv25, RV29
Heart: RV10, RV02, RV13, RV25, RV29
Butterflies: V01, V04
I added white highlights to my colored images, using a White Glaze Jelly Roll Pen.  All images were then cut out using the Die-namics Joyful Heart Bears.

Using the Die-namics Double the Love, I cut my title from a pale lavender cardstock I had in my crafty stash. I inked blended the letters with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide.

I attached mt inked panel to my card base, and then arranged all the sweet images onto my card. Once I was happy with the layout, I attached the bears and letters with 3D Foam Squares for dimension. 

Finally, I stamped my sentiment onto white cardstock, and cut it out using the Scalloped Card Panels and Banners. I attached it to the upper left hand corner of my card, and snipped of the excess.

Thanks so much for joining me today...I'll see you next week!

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

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
