So hoppy for you! by Beata

Hi crafty friends! Beata June here.  So happy to be back on the blog today sharing this hoppy for you vertical slimline card.
Stamps and dies I used for this card:

To start things off I stamped four of the cute little frogs and four dragon flies from the Sunny Studio Feeling Froggy stamp set with onto white cardstock using my misti stamping tool and a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.  Next, I stamped four flowers and two lily pads from the Sunny Studio Country Scene stamp set.  Then I colored my stamped images with copic markers and cut them out. 

I wanted to have three flies in each of my panels, so I stamped 12 flies from the Sunny Studio Feeling Froggy stamp set and Sunny Studio Country Scene stamp set and cut them out.

I cut out my white postage frame from white cardstock using the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Postage die.  Then I blended each of the postage squares inside the frame to match the colors I used for the dragon flies, flowers, and lily pads (pink, yellow, blue and purple) with distress oxide inks using my Picket Fence Life Changing Blender Brushes.  I blended spun sugar and picked raspberry distress oxide inks for the pink panel, squeezed lemonade and fossilized amber distress oxide for the yellow panel, salty ocean and chipped sapphire distress oxide for the blue panel, and shaded lilac and wilted violet distress oxide for the purple panel.  

After I finished blending the postage panels, I splattered them with water/paint.  When my panels were dry, I used double sided tape to adhere my postage frame and panels onto a piece of blue cardstock.  I put one frog, one dragonfly, and 3 flies in each of my panels (except for the yellow panel which I left room to add my sentiment), mixed my lily pads and flowers between the panels, and glued them on top of my slimline postage frame and blended panels using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.  
Next, I stamped the "I'm so hoppy for you" sentiment from the Sunny Studio Feeling Froggy stamp set onto my yellow postage panel using my misti stamping tool and a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Then I added two more flies to my yellow panel so that I had three flies in each of my panels.  For my last step I used a white glaze jelly roll pen to add highlights to my colored images.

Here is another look at my "I'm So Hoppy for You" vertical slimline card:
Aren't these little froggies the cutest?!?

I'm so froggy hoppy 🐸 to share this this card with you all! 😆😆  Thank you for following along. I hope you like these cuties as much as I do! 

Crafty hugs,

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
