Wonderful Day | Floral Bouquet

Hi all!  Kari with you today to share this floral bouquet card featuring the Avery Elle Floral Bouquet stamp set and its coordinating dies.  When I saw this set, I immediately fell in love with it as there are a lot of very detailed floral images out there, and I love how this one has detail, but it is simple at the same time, and that is great for those like me that don't color in floral images very often.


I thought about the different ways I could color in these beautiful flowers, and decided to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I stamped out the main image from this set and stamped it onto a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper.  I prepped my surface with a powder tool, and used my VersaMark ink to cover the entire image, and then used some Silver embossing powder, and used my heat tool to set.  

From there, I was ready to color in my images using #30 Blue, #81 Violet for the flowers, and #40 Green, #41 Light Green and May Green for the leaves, and a little Yellow Green for the buds, and middles of the flowers.  


Once I was done, and let my image dry, I added some Clear Wink of Stella shimmer pen to the flowers.  I used the coordinating die to die cut out the image, and I set it aside.  Onto the rest of the card.  I used  Scalloped Rectangles Stackables and a Circle die from a piece of Narwhal cardstock.  I need prepped the bottom right corner to emboss also in silver,  my sentiment from the same Avery Elle stamp set. I knew I was going to add some foam adhesive to this panel, so I wanted to add a bit more interest to the circle window.  So, I took my top fold A2 sized white card base, and used the Altenew Halftone Stencil and used Wilted Violet and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks to add a bit more color to tie together everything.



Even though it is Monday, hopefully this card brings a bit of happiness to your day!  Thanks so much for joining me today!  See you soon right here!

-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 …
