Happy Easter My Hunny Bunny

Hi Crafty Friends,

Alix here bringing you an early Easter Card. Easter day is special to me and my husband. Because he proposed to me 7 years ago on Easter day. Guess where I found my engagement ring? In my daughter's Easter basket! He was going to bury the ring underneath the dirt at the park we first met. Then he worried that dogs will find and take it away. So he quickly hide it into the Easter basket at the last minute. The problem is my 2 years old daughter almost cried when I took the ring from her because she thought its from the Easter bunny. I will never forget that moment. hehe...



Now let us talk about this card I made. I Picked Neat and Tangled Cottontail Cuties Stamp set for Easter scene. I stamped all images with Memento ink in Rich cocoa and colored them in pastel color combos with Copic markers. To create the background, I ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in fossilized amber  and tattered rose on Tim Holtz Distress watercolor papers. I used two papers, one for bottom layer and one for the top. To create the center window, I cut the paper into two parts with Lawn Fawn Lacy border die, then I adhered foam tape underneath to create dimensions. I mixed water and two inks that I used for the background, then splattered the mixture onto all card front space.



Time to assemble our colored images onto the card. I adhered them using Multi Medium Matte. Popped the carrot up with a tiny piece of foam tape. I simply stamped the sentiment "Happy Easter" from the same stamp set with Memento ink in Rich cocoa. At last, I pulled out my all time favorite sequins Neat and tangled Sherbert Sequin Mix to fill up some empty space for finishing touch.



Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are influenced by my Easter spirit. Remember, its never too early to prepare coming holidays! See you on next Tuesday. Bye bye now!

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&#…
