To Someone Sweet with Mama Elephant stamps by Beata

Hi friends! Beata June here and I'm back to share this card full of sweet treats I made using Mama Elephant stamps!

This is so me right now wanting to eat all the sweets! 😆

This card features the Mama Elephant Milkshake stamp set (coordinating die available here), Boba Tea stamp set (coordinating die available here), and the Donut Treats stamp set (coordinating die available here).

To start off, I stamped off all of the sweet treats and cute critters from the Milkshake, Boba Tea and Donut Treats stamp sets on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink using my Mini Misti stamping tool.  Then I colored my stamped images with Copic markers.

I colored more images than I could fit on my card because all of the images from these stamp sets are so darn cute I wanted to color them all! 💛

Next, I cut out a stitched background frame from white cardstock using a Mama Elephant die, picked the colored images I wanted to use for my card, and added some blue bubbles for my sweet drinks.

I wanted to have a blue, pink, and green blended background for each panel behind my stitched background frame to match the colors of my treats and critters, so I blended Tumbled Glass, Broken ChinaSpun Sugar, and Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink onto a piece of white cardstock using my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes.  I splattered the blended background with water, and white, pink, green, and blue colored paint and adhered the stitched frame on top of my blended background with double sided tape.  Then I glued my stamped images I previously colored onto my card using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.  After all my images were glued on, I mounted the card panel onto a splattered blue card base.  For my last step, I added white highlights to my colored images using a Sakura white glaze jelly roll pen.

Here's my finished card to send to a sweet friend:
These Mama Elephant stamp sets are super fun to color! Coloring all these goodies has me in the mood for some dessert so I'm off to bake myself some sweet treats! 💖💖  

Thanks for reading along, and I'll be back again soon to share another fun crafty project with you!

Crafty hugs,
Beata June 💚💚

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
