Super Cool Card with Jess Featuring My Favorite Things

Hey friends!

It's so exciting to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today. I've missed sharing with you guys! For today's project, I focused on My Favorite Things products for a super cute card. See what I did there?

To get started, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxides. I used Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserves. I absolutely love this color combination. Once I finished my blending, I used some clean water and the Splatter Brush from Tim Holtz/Ranger to add specks of water all over my panel. I also grabbed some white paint and the Rays stencil from Tim Holtz to add some interest to the sky. I set this aside to dry.

I decided this background was worthy of a super hero, so I grabbed the new (to me) You're Super set from MFT. I've had my eye on this set for AGES, so I'm thrilled to finally have the chance to use it. I stamped out the adorable super hero and colored her up using Copic markers. I die cut her mask from glitterstock and used the coordinating dies to cut her out as well.

For the city skyline, I cut 5 of the cities from black cardstock using the coordinating die set. I love that you can use this with or without the stamped image. I layered them all in an overlapping pattern and then adhered them to my blended background.

I used a strip of black card stock and my Mini MISTI to heat emboss the sentiment from Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings. I laughed out loud when I read this one, so I knew I had to use it. I thought it went really well with the super hero theme, too!

I popped the whole background up on foam tape, adhered my super hero to the front, and shaded the area around her feet with a warm grey Copic marker to help ground her. To finish off the card, I added a few clear sequins. That's it! The card is finished and I don't think I could love it any more.

Hugs and love to you all,

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

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
