You Make My Beak Sing

Hi friends! In light of everything going on right now, I wanted to make a bright and happy card. I used the gorgeous March Mood Board for inspiration...the bright yellow and blues just make me happy, and that little pop of pink is a fun touch!

To begin, I cut an A2 rectangle using the blue gingham plaid print from the Hello Sunshine Remix Petite Paper Pad. Next, using the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts, using the largest rectangle, I cut a panel from Bristol smooth cardstock. I cut my rectangle in half, as I will stencil only half of it. I placed the Radiating Rays Stencil on top of my halved rectangle, and ink blended with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink pads. I set my panel aside to dry.

Next, I stamped the images from Hello Bluebird's Garden Friends Stamp Set onto Bristol smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored my stamped images with Copic markers and added highlights with a white gel pen. All colored images were then cut out using the Garden Friends Dies.

I then attached the patterned paper to an A2 card base. Next, I attached the inked sun rays to my card front. The birds were attached using foam tape for dimension. Finally, I stamped the "You make my beak sing" sentiment from the Silly Birds Stamp set onto pale pink cardstock and cut out using the Everyday Sentiment Banners Lawn Cuts. I attached that to the front of my card, tucking under the birds feet and covering the seam from the inked panel.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope my card put a smile on your face :)
Stay safe and healthy, my friends.

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
