YOU MAKE MY TAIL WAG from MY FAVORITE THINGS

Hello everybody this is Nicky here with you today with my first post as a Design Team member for Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop.  I am delighted to be here with you all sharing my love of card making and hopefully inspiring many of you with your future projects.

Today's card features the totally adorable You Make My Tail Wag stamp and coordinating die set by My Favorite Things.





I started out by masking off my card panel and then using Distress Inks and the totally AMAZING Clarity Stencil Brushes I ink blended the strip of sky and grass.  After removing my masking tape I added a strip of Grassy Border from Lawn Fawn for a little dimension.  I then stamped and watercolor painted the cute dog and his dog house using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers  and die cut them and applied them to the card using some dimensional foam tape.  Next I layered on the die cut clouds and sun from Spring Showers by Lawn Fawn.   Finally I stamped the I MISS YOU sentiment from Handwritten Notes by Avery Elle and as usual with me I finished off with a few sequin accents because I can rarely resist a little twinkle on just about all of my cards.

If you are interested in seeing more of my cards please follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards, Pinterest and Facebook.

I hope you are inspired .... now go and shop for all your card needs and get creating - I'll see you 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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …

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 will work the same.  It&#…
