Birthday Card using Masking Technique

Hello, BRI friends!
It's Dana here coming back with another card for Wednesday. Today, I played along with Neat and Tangled Puppy's Favorite Things stamp set again. I created 9 different doggies from one stamp image this time.


I started by stamping dog image from Neat and Tangled Puppy's Favorite Things stamp set onto card stock with Altenew Permanent Black. I stamped same image on 4 post-it notes and fussy cut them out using scissors. I used them as a mask and created today's scene like below.




I stamped images after erasing the part of original stamped lines on clear stamp using baby wipe when I needed. After I got a group of doggies, I drew variety shapes on the empty part with Copic Multiliner. I then colored the images using Copic markers and added details with Prisma colored pencils.


I cut dog border, top part of group image, using scissors and ink blended the background onto leftover piece. I used Peacock Feather and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks. I then sprizted water and let it dried.

Next, I pulled out Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames and die cut the frame from A2 sized white card stock. Do you know that? I used almost same supplies with last week's one but I made very different card! It's so fun :)

Before mounting elements, I stamped & white heat embossed sentiments as shown in the picture. I stamped other small images from same stamp set and colored them with Copic markers, too. I also applied Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen-Clear Overlay to pom pom and tag and Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew to mini bells.

To finish, I adhered dog panel behind the frame using glue tape and foam mounted them at once onto A2 sized card base after gluing the background piece on it.


Plus, I'm sharing ink blending results of some new Distress Oxide Inks and the one with similar shades of colors. I sponged them softly onto bristol paper using mini blending tool.

Hope you enjoyed this card and happy shopping!

Love,
Dana

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&#…
