Conversation Hearts Card & Book Mark by Tina

Hello crafty friends, Tina here with my first card as a DT member for Butterfly Reflections Ink!
I am super excited to be part of this amazing team!

Today I am sharing a ‘love themed’ project with lots of cute pastel hearts.

I started by cutting a white stitched rectangle panel (slightly smaller than A2 size) and divided it into two parts using a scallop border die. The top part of my panel measures about an inch.

Then I pulled out my Lawn Fawn stencil ‘Conversation Hearts’ which consists of a heart and a text stencil.

I inked up the lower part of the panel with the heart stencil using distress oxides inks in soft pastel shades (Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, Salvaged Patina, Spun Sugar), the Detailed Waffle Flower blending brushes made the blending very easy. These brushes are so small that it wasn’t necessary to do any masking.

To get a different look I shifted the stencil, so the hearts are in straight lines.
The text was added to the hearts using Kitsch Flamingo distress oxide ink.

I wanted to include a cute element to the card so I die cut and stamped the bear image from the Lawn Fawn For you dear set (die set, add on die). 
I colored this sweet bear with my copics (E41, E42, E43, E44, R81).

Then I assembled the bear die cuts with liquid glue and added some Lawn Fawn Unicorn Tail Sparkle card and a little white bow.

To add some interest to the top part of the panel I used a stripe stencil from my stash and Spun Sugar distress oxide. Finally I selected a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Sentiments and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using my Misti.

I glued the top part of the panel to an aqua card base with liquid glue. To create dimension, I added foam tape to the bottom part of the panel leaving a gap so the bear die cut could slide in and out.

This card didn’t need many embellishments, just a few small pink hearts.

I hope you like this sweet loved themed card, thank you for stopping by

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
