Made My Day | Hello BlueBird Stamps ( Continuing a card scene from the outside to the inside )

Well, hello friends! Kari with you today, and I am happy to be back for today on the BRI blog!  Today I wanted to share with all of you a fun card, and give an idea on how to continue your card scene from the outside to the inside.  

For today's card, I am using some adorable images from a new stamp company, Hello BlueBird.  Vanessa's shop is currently the only place that you can purchase these stamps other than the Hello Bluebird website.  That is very exciting for her shop!  This set that I have used today is called Pig Day  I have also used a few other images from the Springtime set as well.  

I started out my card by first die cutting a piece of smooth white card stock with a wonky stitched square die from MFT.  I used two different stencils to start out my scene.  The Drifts and Hills Stencil and the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil both from MFT.  I used Distress inks in Mowed Lawn for the grass or hill, and the Tumbled Glass for the clouds/sky.  Once I was happy with how that turned out, I stamped out all my images that was going to use on my card, and colored them in with Copic Markers.  

Once I was completely done with the coloring, I used the coordinating dies for the images, and put them through my Big Shot machine to get some nice cut out images.  I created my 5x5 square card base from Kraft card stock, and also die cut a piece of the Really Rainbow pattern paper with a stitched square die to create a nice mat for my main panel.  

I started adhering my images to my scene, some with liquid adhesive, and some with foam adhesive for added dimension.  I also stamped out my sentiment for the outside that reads " This little piggy says..." with some black ink.  Like I mentioned in the beginning, I wanted to extend my scene to the inside of the card, so I die cut a smaller white wonky stitched panel, and used the same stencils to create another hill and clouds, and then I stamped out my other sentiment that reads " You Made My Day".  I adhered the rest of my images to the inside, and I added some final touches to my images with a white gel pen.  I love how the piggy is excited to receive a card in the mail from his favorite pal!  I know that is how I feel when I receive a "handmade hug" from one of my crafty friends!  

Thank you for taking some time out of your day to join me today!  It is always a pleasure to design for Vanessa when I can!  Hope to see you all very soon once again!  Take Care!

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
