"Beauty Within" Floral Birthday Card

Hey All! Kelly Fusco here. For this card I'm using Altenews "Beauty Within" Stamp & Die set. I have the coordinating stencil but I didn't need it or use it for this card. 
To start off I stamped my Images onto 80lb Neenah cardstock.  I used Copics to flick color onto them. I used:
RV10,RV21,RV23 & RV25
V20,BV20,BV01,BV02 & BV13
BG10,BG23,BG45, & BG13
YG11,YG03,YG25 & YG17
the centers I used YR24 & YR27
Then I die cut everything out. 
Once I laid out how I wanted them to appear I used Press n Seal and press it onto my layout, flipped it over and added glue and foam tape. 
Now comes the FREESTYLE....I took another 80lb panel of Neenah and I used the CHISEL side of my black Copic and from the outside edge I swiped in like a brushstroke. I repeated that down the left side of my panel. 
 It doesn't have to be perfect as much of it will be covered plus I love that organic look. Then I took 1 copic from each color family I used on the flowers and made light dots all over the panel. I used an embossed rectangle die to die cut that panel then I removed all the release paper from the foam tape and flipped over the press n seal and placed my arrangement onto my panel. Press down and then removed the press n seal. Then I took a Black Sakura GLAZE Gelly roll pen to the floral center dots. I added a bit of Wink Of Stella shimmer pen to my floral petals and a Happy Birthday Sentiment.
Thats it. This card was easy to put together.  What took the most time was adding all the foam tape. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like this card.  If you have a moment check out Butterfly Reflections Ink for these items and any other crafty items you may need....or want,lol. 
Thank you,

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
