So Tweet

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a super sweet and simple card with you all! This is my last post for the current Butterfly Reflections, Ink Design Team. It has truly been an honor being a part of this amazing company and team these last few months peeps!

For my card today, I used the Winnie & Walter So Tweet Stamp Set. These lil birds are so stinkin cute, I can't even stand it!

I kept these guys pretty simple. I stamped the, with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in with Copic's. If I were to do this card again, I would stamp them in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat emboss them with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. I think the lil bit of extra texture and dimension on the finished card would be groovy.

I chose to color the ground in with Copic's as well, but I wanted to give the sky behind my lil chicks a more softer look, so I masked them off with Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper, then using a Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool, I lightly blended some My Favorite Things Blue Yonder Ink on to the panel.

I used one of the My Favorite Things Inside & Out Stitched Square Dies to cut down my panel, then I used the next size larger in the set to also die cut a piece of My Favorite Things Translucent Vellum.

Before I adhered the panel and the vellum to my card base, I used the same Copic colors that I used for the grass and the Blue Yonder Ink and colored in the panel.

To finish off my card, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the beaks, a few Lucy's Cards Sequins from the Jack Frost Sequin Shaker Mix and I stamped the sentiment from the Stamp Set with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink again.

That's it! I hope you enjoyed my card today! As usual, don't forget to stop back by tomorrow to see more crafty fabulousness and head on over to the BRI Shop to get the goods. ALSO the new Design Team will be coming soon, so be sure to check them out because they will be Ah-mazing!

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

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
