Spring Floral Cards

Happy hump day, BRI friends!
It's Dana here and I have two cards to share with you today. I made both backgrounds very easily using washi tape and patterned paper. Here are what I came up with.

For my first card, I started by stamping cherry blossoms and leaves from Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossom Stamp Set onto cold pressed watercolor paper. I watercolored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and die cut with coordinating dies. I applied Nuvo Cristal Drops Ebony Black to each stamens for detail.

I then die cut sentiments using Pretty Pink Posh Hello Friends Script Die from black card stock. I also applied Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew to each words for glossy effect after I mounted them on the background.

For background, I adhered wide washi tape on A2 sized white card stock. I shopped it yesterday at my local store called Daiso in very good price, about one dollar. Isn't it awesome? :) I then ink blended top part with Peacock Feather Distress Ink using Mini Blending Tool. I splattered gold drawing ink using paint brush over the card stock. I mounted floral elements using foam adhesives and embellished Pretty Pink Posh Shamrock Jewels as shown in the picture.

For next card, I started by die cutting floral background with Altenew Doodled Lace Cover Die from watercolor paper. This is one of my favorite cover die from Altenew. I colored it with Altenew Artist Markers Set B and Set C. I used C001 and Y204. I then trimmed down patterned paper from Altenew Reflection Paper and mounted it on A2 sized white card base. I combined it again with floral cover using glue tape.

I die cut alphabets from watercolor paper two times using Altenew Caps Bold Alphabet Dies. I glued them each other and covered it with Nuvo Crystal Drops Bubblegum Blush. After dried it completely, I applied Nuvo drops again over it and I repeated this process 4 times. It took long time so much more than I expected, but I love how it turned out.

I adhered small circle foam adhesive behind each letters and mounted them as shown. To finish off, I embellished Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals here and there.

I hope you enjoyed today's cards. Happy crafting!

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

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

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
