Steeped In Love

Hey folks!

Clean and simple has to be, hands down, my most favorite approach in card making. I just LOVE stamping an image, coloring it in and calling it a day. Building scenes, getting technical and fancy schmancy is great and all, but I really enjoy an image that can stand alone on the front of a card.

So, that's what todays cards are all about! Let's face it peeps, almost all of my cards are like this, but let's focus on today shall we?

I stamped this sweet, sweet girl from the Steeped In Love Stamp Set by My Favorite Things on three panels of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Ink.

There are soo many mediums that would be super duper for coloring this in, but I was really enjoy the way Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils pop.

For all three of my cards, I used a Lawn Fawn Scalloped Border Die on the Panels and pieces of My Favorite Things Translucent Vellum to go underneath.

My Favorite Things Pink Lemonade, Blu Raspberry and Grape Jelly Card Stock were used for my Card Bases and I finished all of them off with Clear Wink of Stella and Ranger Glossy Accents on the Flowers. Aaand because I don't know when to leave well enough alone, I also added some Sequins from the Jack Frost Shaker Mix by Lucy's Cards.

That's it peeps! Easy Peasy. I hope you enjoyed my cards today. I have some more My Favorite Things love on The Pink Envelope blog. ALSO, at the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Shop you can take 20% off using code HAVEATIT20 between now and January 13th!

Until next time!

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
