You are my Sunshine Inked Card

Hello Everyone, its Trish here again with another card for you showcasing some Amazing products in the store.

Today's card is centered around the Jillibean Soup Mini Placemats Star Light Pack.  This pack of 6 cards are absolutely adorable and I thought they would make great focal points on a card.  I decided to use the Sun placemat and of course, had to ink it up :)

I used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mustard Seed to ink up the whole sun and then used Spiced Marmalade around the outside of the sun.  Inking was done with my trusty Mini Ink Blending Tool.  

Once that was complete, I wanted to make my card base just slightly larger than the placemat so it is cut at 3.25" x 4.25".  The white backdrop was too plain for me, so we went a bit further with inking and used just a very light wash of Salty Ocean Distress Ink.  

For my sentiment, I stamped it in VersaMark ink of some vellum and head embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then wrapped the vellum around the sun placemat and adhered it with some scotch tape.  

To finish off my card, I used a heart enamel shape from this We R Memory Keepers Pack and of course, we must add a hint of shipper with the Wink of Stella Brush Tip Marker in Clear.   Used some foam adhesive to attach the placemat to my card base and that completes the card for today.

Hope you guys enjoyed this card!  I'll see you back here soon with another project featuring some great products from the store!

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
