Taylored Expressions

G ood Morning Friends! It is Dana here today and I am excited to be back sharing a card with you all. For my card today, I am using some fun birthday supplies from Taylored Expressions.


 I started my card by stamping the Taylored Expressions Gifted Background Stamp with VersaFine Clair Black Ink. I stamped my background twice, once for the back panel and once for the front. I then heat set my stamping with Clear Embossing Powder. Next, I used one of my stamped panels and attached the Gifted Stencil to the panel with Purple Tape to hold it in place. I then added Distress Oxide Ink in a variety of colors to my panel.


Next, I used the second panel I had stamped and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Gifted Cutting Plate. The cutting plate lines up perfectly with the stenciled background, so I then just attached the two panel together. To clean up the edges and to finish my card panel I ran it through my die cutting machine with Waffle Flower A2 Layered Die. This is a great set of basic dies, great for creating perfect card panels and mats.


To finish my card, I used the Simple Strips Background Stamp to create my sentiment. Once it was stamped, I ran it through my die cutting machine with the Simple Strips Backer Die. Do you have these Simple Strips sets from Taylored Expressions? I can't recommend them enough! They are a definite must have.


Thanks for joining me today! I hope you liked my card and I hope to be back soon to share another project with you all.
Enjoy your day,
Dana

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…

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 …

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&#…
