New Baby Card by Tina

Hello friends, Tina here!

This time I have a sweet baby card for you, using the adorable bear from the Mama Elephant Up With Love stamp set. 


After stamping this cutie onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, I used my Copic markers for the coloring (B12, B34, E41, E43, E44, E47, E49).

Next I die cut two star shapes, one from patterned paper from my stash and the other one from vellum.

Before I die cut the vellum I added some double sided adhesive to the back of the sheet for easy assembling later on.

To finish the design I also needed to die cut a circle from white Card Stock and three small clouds which I coloured with copics as well.

For the base panel I cut the Lawn Fawn Sunburst Backdrop die from a sheet of yellow Card Stock. To create more dimension, I inked up the edges of the panel with Distress Oxide Scattered Straw ink. For some extra sparkle I added splatters of shimmer spray with a small paint brush.


I used my Misti to stamp a Clearly Besotted sentiment to one of the mini clouds.


To assemble the card I first glued the yellow panel to a white card base.

Next, I added the vellum star by simply removing the backing of the double-sided adhesive. The yellow star was adhered with some foam tape for extra dimension.
Finally, I glued the circle and the cute bear to the star.

To embellish the card I added some little white stars and my favorite Honey Bee Crystal Clear Gem stickers.
  

I hope you like this sweet card and I see you soon, Tina

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
