Happy Summer!


Hi Friends!  I'm back with another mood board inspired card.  The card was inspired by the image of the palm trees to the far right and the sentiment was inspired by the coral lettering (see image below).  

To create this card, I first die cut the background using the tropical backdrop die.  Then, I masked and ink blended the image using Catherine pooler inks chiffon for the yellows, cummerbund for the blue and shea butter for the sand.  Distress oxide gathered twigs and distress ink blueprint sketch used for the palm trees.  I cut the leaves of the tress from bazzill cardstock in candy necklace and inked them up with blueprint sketch distress ink.  The background sky was ink blended using chiffon and cummerbund inks.  

The images were stamped using versafine black ink and colored using zig clean color brush pens and karin markers.  The following sets were used:

On the Beach - fox on raft, beach ball, sunglasses

Ocean Shell-Fie - rocks on the beach

Butterfly Kisses - fox running

Coaster Critters- baby fox

Life is Good - bucket with sand, raft (made by modifying the hammock)

Fantastic Friends - sandcastle

The sentiment was cut from coral reef cardstock by stamp market using the Oliver's stitched ABC die and Nuvo glitter drops in silver crystals  added for sparkle!  

All the images were adhered to the card front using foam tape and liquid glue.  The entire card was mounted to an A2 white card base and that finished the card!

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

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
