Sending You Prayers

Are you like me and simply cannot pass up a stamp set that reminds you of your children, nieces or nephews or grandchildren, or your dog, cat or beloved fish?

Karen B. here from The Bald Dragonfly, and I have two cards featuring the same stamp sets, layouts and techniques for you. I couldn't pass up the Better Together Stamp Set from Neat & Tangled because the images in it are so sweet and the little boy reminds me of my own two rambunctious rascals!

I stamped and colored the boy images from this set-the brown haired boy with Copics and the the blond haired boy with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. They were die cut using the coordinating Better Together Dies and set aside. On a white piece of cardstock, I stamped the awesome sentiment from Honey Bee's Prayers Stamp Set with the rich, deep Versafine Onyx Black Ink. The MISTI tool allowed me to stamp the two cards without too much extra work. I love the size of the "pray" word, and the fact that you can customize the coordinating smaller sentiments and the word "pray" itself! If you haven't checked out this set yet, it is a must have!

I then added a light background with MFT's Mix-abilitiles Stencils in the Tiny Triangles and Small Brick Wall Stencils, respectively, using Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I adhered the boys onto each of their cards using dimensional adhesive.

Here's a close up of all the dimension on the card!

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
