Altenew Build-A-Flower Rose

Happy Wednesday! Lindsay here on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog today with a card using Altenew and Avery Elle products. A while back I got this Altenew Build-A-Flower Stamp and Die Set from Butterfly Reflections, Ink when it was sold out everywhere else. I totally fell in love with this flower the second I saw it. I mean, I love all of the flowers in the Altenew Build-A-Flower line, but this one really spoke to me, and I was so excited to be able to get it from Vanessa's shop!

For this card I started by stamping the layering images out using all Altenew Mini Ink Cube Sets. I love that Altenew has these ink sets, that way you know you'll get a gorgeous look with any stamp layering set. (Just a note, the Build-A-Flower Rose comes with 6 layers. I've only used 4 for these images as that's how many ink cubes I had to work with. However, you can stamp the same ink color multiple times using a MISTI and you can get enough color difference using 4 ink cubes to be able to stamp all 6 layers). I actually like the rose with just the 4 layers so I stuck with that. 

After stamping all of the images, I then went to my die cutting machine and cut out all of the flowers and leaves. I arranged my colorful rainbow of flowers onto a card front and decided I wanted some splatter. Using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and Gold Gansai Tambi Watercolors I splattered the whole front of the card once it was all adhered using Foam Tape. I then decided I needed a bold greeting to stand out against the busy background. I decided to use the Avery Elle Banner Bits stamp and Die Set for my sentiment. I layered a black Banner Die Cut behind the sentiment banner to make it pop even more.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you have enjoyed my card and that I've inspired you to try some stamp layering techniques! Have a great rest of your week!


P.S. Bonus puppy picture. (Note the treats in hand to make them actually sit down for more than 3 seconds!) :)

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
