Sending Lots of Love!

Hi Everyone!  I'm stepping outside my comfort zone with this card I've created for you today.  If you haven't already noticed, I'm more of a "scene builder" with my card designs. Today I've created a soft pastel infinity shaker card featuring Pretty Pink Posh products.  You can find all the products I used to create this card at Butterfly Reflections Ink.

Starting with a piece of hot pressed watercolor paper, I stamped the background using the fall borders stamp with VersaMark ink.  Then the images were white heat embossed.  The background panel was then colored using the "ink smooshing" method.  Catherine Pooler inks: Limoncello, Tiki Torch, Bellini, Be Mine, Party Dress, Coral Cabana were used.  I absolutely love the emboss-resist pattern, don't you?

After the card base was dry, I used the outside in stitched rectangle stackables die in the largest size to cut the base.  I adhered the watercolored base to an A2 piece of heavy weight cardstock.  Then using one Avery Elle stamp die storage pocket (5 5/8" x 7 3/8"), I slid in the background panel. 
Then using StazOn black ink and my Misti stamping tool, I stamped the sentiment from the everyday greetings stamp set.  Then I added pretty pink posh sequins: friendship confetti, sparkling clear seed beads, 6mm clear sparkling sequins, 6mm ballerina clear sequins.  I also added a few peach sequins I had in my stash.  
The panel was folded over and closed using double sided tape.  

The card panel was adhered to an A2 card base using double sided tape.  And that finishes the card!

I hope you liked this card.  It's definitely not my typical card or color palette, but I love trying new techniques and color combinations.  I encourage you to try something new and step out of your comfort zone!  Have a lovely rest of your day!

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

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
