Flying High To Say Hello with Leontine

Hello! Today I'm on the blog sharing a card with the super adorable Hello Bluebird set Flying High.
I only needed a couple sets to create this card: Flying High and Summer Woods Scene.


I stamped all of the images with Jet Black Ink on some Copic friendly paper and colored them with my Copic Sketch Markers: C00, C0, C1, W00, YR00, YR01, YR02, RV21, RV23, RV25, R20, R22, R30, BG10, BG11, BG23, E31, E34, E35, E37, E21, E23, E25, E27. To the eyes I added Black Glaze Pen to make them pop a little more. And you can never go wrong with a little sparkle, so I added Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen to a few images.

For the background I used Salvaged Patina, Kitsch Flamingo and Dried Marigold distress oxide inks. I sprinkled some water mixed with liquid stardust on top and used a paper towel to pick up the remaining water.

Once that panel was dry I used my anti-static powder to prep the surface and I stamped the sentiment with clear ink. I added white embossing powder to it and melted it with my heat tool.

Then it was time to add the white border from Summer Woods Scene and all of my images with some liquid glue.

To give the card a little more interest I added a few iridescent bubbles with liquid glue and my embellishment wand.

And now the card is finished! I hope you like my card. If you're interested in seeing how I made this, you can watch the video right here. Have an amazing week!

Hugs,
Leontine

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

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

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
