"hugs," featuring Neat & Tangled Better Together

Hey guys!  How are you enjoying your summer?  It's Jung here, sharing a "hugs" card featuring Neat & Tangled Better Together stamp set and matching dies.  This set is just so cute, and perfect for any occasion!  Neat & Tangled have been coming out with some really cute sets...don't forget to check out the BRI shop to check them out!

To make my card:

  1. I stamped the girl/owl image and the boy/fox image from the N&T Better Together stamp set onto white cardstock with Memento tuxedo black ink.  
  2. I colored in the images using copic markers.  I also added in some detail with a white gel pen,  Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the girl's skirt and hair bow, and white prismacolor color pencil for some highlights to their hair.
  3. I die cut the images with the N&T Better Together dies, and set aside.  
  4. I die cut a stitched rectangle from a piece of water color paper.
  5. I loosely water colored a background sky and grass with distress inks in tumbled glass, peacock feathers, mowed lawn, and twisted citron.  
  6. Once the background was completely dry, I heat embossed the hugs sentiment from the same N&T stamp set with Versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder.  
  7. I attached the background panel to a navy colored card base.
  8. I attached my girl and boy onto the background with foam tape.  I added a tiny bit of glossy accents to all the eyes for some shine.  
  9. To finish off my card, I added sequins from Lucy's cards Gilded Rose sequin mix.  
I really hope you like the way my card turned out.  I absolutely love this stamp set!

Have a fabulous Wednesday!

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
