Happy Father's Day!

Happy Wednesday! Lindsay here on the blog featuring a Father's Day Card using some new My Favorite Things products as well as some older Lawn Fawn products. I'll give you guys a little background for my card. I am my dad's sushi buddy as my mom won't go near it, which is so silly as she is part Japanese. But never the less, our dad and daughter dates are usually accompanied by Japanese food, whether it be sushi, ramen, or simple izakaya food. Okay, now it's time to get back to the card!


I started by stamping out the Let's Roll Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn using Copic Safe Black Ink onto Neenah 80# card stock. I then took out my Copic Markers and got to coloring!


After finishing coloring I had to fussy cut out the images (EW!) (as I don't have the Lawn Cuts). I used these Spring Cut Scissors, which actually does help the process of fussy cutting to be a little less tedious. The scissors are actually a little bit fun to use! Then I got working on the background.


I did some ink smoothing using Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink as my dad's favorite color is orange and this is the closest color to a pure orange that I have in my arsenal. I stamped the large "DAD" and smaller sentiment using MFT All About Dad Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black Ink so that I could heat emboss it using Clear Embossing Powder. I usually try to clear emboss when using the Versafine ink as it takes a bit to dry and I'm impatient so I always end up smearing it if I don't emboss it. So sad! After finishing up the embossing I started arranging the sushi scene.


I adhered the plate and soy sauce bottle straight to the background of the card using Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive and then, using one layer of Foam Tape, adhered the maki style roll in the back and then with two layers of Foam Tape, adhered the nigiri rolls in the front.


I then finished off with a couple Pretty Pink Posh Sequins, not that my dad is super into sparkle or anything but it's physically impossible for me to NOT embellish a card with Pretty Pink Posh sparkly things!


And that's my card for today! Hope everything is having a great week! I'll see you guys next week with another card.

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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&#…

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 …
