Avery Elle Magnolia Stamp Set Two Ways

Happy Wednesday! Lindsay here on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog using new Avery Elle products from their latest release. The whole release is available on the Butterfly Reflections Ink Store and I highly recommend checking it out. Today, I'm sharing two cards using the Avery Elle Magnolia Stamp Set.

The first, shown below, is a bright, bold card. It was created for my cousin who recently graduated from NYU.
I started with stamping the Magnolia Stamps onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink with my Mini Misti. I then heat embossed the image with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder. Once that was finishing, I took out my Clean Color Real Brush Markers from Kuretake Zig and got to coloring!
I really have to say that coloring with Zigs on Bristol Smooth Paper is one of my favorite things right now. It's so fun and easy to blend out the colors are they are all so vibrant (and vibrant colors are kind of my jam). After letting the coloring dry on its own and black splattering the images using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink, I used the Magnolia Coordinating Elle-ments Dies to cut out the images. Coordinating dies are a life saver for me as I really dislike fussy cutting.
I then used the ink smoothing technique with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink to make a subtle, yet bright and summery background. I again used Black Soot Distress Ink to splatter some black dots on the background. I can't seem to stop splattering things! 

I placed the largest frame from Avery Elle Reversed Pinked Elle-Ments onto the ink smoothed background. I definitely think one can't get enough frame dies! It's a great way to add a decorative element to a card.
I then heat embossed a sentiment from the Magnolia Stamp Set onto black card stock using Versamark Ink and Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I then fussy cut out the sentiment to allow for more of the pretty flowers and background to show. As you should already know, I finished off the card with Pretty Pink Posh Watermelon Jewels using Multi Medium Matte with a precision tip.
And that's the end of my first card!

Here is my second card, a bonus for today's posting! I had some backgrounds left over from playing with Distress Micro Glaze so I decided to use them with the beautiful Magnolia Stamp. I used the glaze over Distress Oxide Ink that was ink smooshed on to Alcohol Ink Paper. WHAT A FUN TECHNIQUE! I used White Embossing Powder to stamp the images onto these backgrounds and cut out with the Coordinating Dies. The black background is splattered with Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolors and embellished with Metallic Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh. The sentiment is heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.
Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be on the blog again on Saturday!
Aloha,
Lindsay

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
