Celebrating National Pizza Day, Feb. 9th!

Happy Thursday crafty friends, Ashley D. here!  I know you're all counting down until National Pizza Day!  *wink, wink*  Yup, it’s this Saturday, February 9th, and it seemed like the perfect occasion to create a simple pizza-themed card, that could also conveniently double as a Valentine too.  And a gift card to your favorite pizza spot tucked inside sounds perfect!  

If you’re a foodie like me, you probably love food stamps too, and Lawn Fawn’s Pizza My Heart set is one of my favorites.  Lots of simple, versatile images.  To begin this card, I first stamped the round pizza, two slices, the box, and cutter with my go-to Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  

I then focused on the pizzas and stamped the individual toppings that would be colored, in this case the pepperoni, and what I’m calling onions.  I then colored the pizza and slices with Copic markers - cheese (Y15, Y35, YR15, YR23, YR28); sauce (R05); crust (E50, E53, E35), and pepperoni (E08, E59).  I then stamped the toppings that would be ink-only - the olives, again in Memento Tuxedo Black, and the green peppers in Distress Oxide Moved Lawn.  

I finished coloring the pizza box (E40, E41, E43, YG13, YG17, YG67) and cutter (C0, C1, C3, E35, E37, E59), and die cut all the images with the coordinating dies.  I stamped the included sentiment with clear embossing ink onto a scrap piece of Bazzill Wax Lips red cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder to give it contrast.  I cut it out with the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banner dies, snipping off the ends to make it rectangular.  

I adhered the sentiment banner and die-cut images to a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock ink blended with Distress Oxide, and die cut with Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables (3.75”x5”).  Honestly, it was a scrap piece from some two-color blending I was experimenting with awhile back.  I don’t remember the colors, but I believe it was Squeezed Lemonade mixed with a hint of Worn Lipstick, but Scattered Straw might give a similar hue.  

I adhered it to a piece of green cardstock (with a 1/16” border), and then onto a white A2 card base.  For a finishing touch, I added dots of NuvoCrystal Drops in Gloss White.  Now I’m hungry, Happy National Pizza Day everyone!  FYI – If you’re a pizza fan, many national and local pizza chains are offering deals and specials on the big day! Yum!

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
