Have A Sweet Day!

Hi friends!! Happy Monday! It's Kari with you today with my first post designing with BRI, and I couldn't be happier!  I am honored to be on a team with such talent!!  For the month of May, you can find me right here bringing you projects every Monday, so I hope you visit then and everyday that each DT member blogs bringing daily inspiration!!

Up today, I wanted to create a fun, happy and yummy card!!  I live in the Midwest, and as I am writing this up, a week ago we suffered some major flooding in and around my area, so much so, it has been labeled as historic!!  So, I wanted to go to a "happier place" by creating with some fun colors and layering up some popsicles using THIS Sunny Studio layering set, called Perfect Popsicles!  I absolutely love all of Sunny Studio's layering sets!  They are so much fun and enjoyable to work with, and the results that you get are magical!  It just makes me giddy!



I started off by taking a piece of smooth white card stock, and I inked up my popsicles using all Lawn Fawn inks! For the Green I used - JalapenoCelery Stick, and Freshly Cut Grass. For the Yellow I used - SunflowerButter, and Carrot. And, for the pink I used - Ballet SlippersBubblegum, and Guava, and for the stick of the popsicle, I only used one layer and one color, Doe Of course I used my Mini MISTI stamping tool as it helps tremendously when working with layering stamp sets! Once I was done with all of my stamping, I used the Coordinating Perfect Popsicles Dies to cut out my images.  



Now, it is time to die cut my other elements to my card design, so I die cut another piece of smooth white card stock using one of the Scalloped Rectangles Stacklables from Lawn Fawn, and also the Scallop Square Tags Dies from Pretty Pink Posh.  I also cut down a piece of pattern paper using the Sunshiny Days 6x6 from Pebbles.  I love this paper pad! So many fun and colorful patterns!


Before I started to assemble my card, I went ahead and stamped out my sentiment 'Have A Sweet Day' which is from the same stamp set!  I used the Jet Black ink from Lawn Fawn!  It has quickly become a favorite of mine!  
I adhered all of my pieces together on my white A2 top fold white card base, and I used foam adhesive to pop up the tag as well as the middle popsicle to make it visually pleasing!  For a final touch, I used some Wink of Stella shimmer to finish off the popsicles!  And I also stamped a greeting from the same set on the inside!





I hope you enjoyed this card!!  I do have a video tutorial as well, and you can visit my Youtube channel to see how I put this one together!  Thank you all for stopping by and I will see you right back here next Monday!  Have a great week!!

Kari

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…

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&#…

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 …
