Make A Wish...

Hi crafty friends!  Kari here today once again to share another project for BRI, and I think I made the most "girly" card possible...

This card features the adorable set from MFT called Fairy Happy, and of course there are Coordinating dies for this set as well.  What I love about MFT dies is there isn't any dies that are nested within one another.  I love how they do this with their manufacturing.


From this set, I chose to color both of the fairies, as well as one of the flower clusters, and I colored them in with my Copic Markers - I used several colors - RV02, RV13, RV14, RV34, R20, E11, E13, E25, E09, G24, G19, YG03, YG21, BG10, and BG11.  

To create my background, I used the Dazzle Layering Die set from Birch Press, and die cut some Raspberry card stock, Cilantro card stock as well as some Silver Sparkle card stock to create the three layers.  I love how all three of these layered together - like I said - very girly!!  


For my sentiment, I die cut a stitched circle from smooth white card stock, and stamped down my sentiment using Jet Black ink from Lawn Fawn as well as the flower cluster, and colored them in with same pinks and greens I used on the fairies. I used some foam adhesive to give the fairies some dimension.  I had a lot going on with this card, but I wanted to add a bit more "bling" to my fairies, so I had some of the silver sparkle card stock pieces left from die cutting the background, and used two small pieces and embellished both of my fairies hair.  I think it was the perfect addition!!


This card definitely does not lack on shine and shimmer!!  And, I love these fairies, as they remind me of my favorite childhood character Herself the Elf! 

Thank you all for stopping in once more, and for my crafty friends here in the States - I wish you a Happy 4th of July!!

Take care, and I will see you again next 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 th

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

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
