Snowflake kisses

Hi Everyone!  I'm sharing a colorful card I created using a few items from the new HelloBlueBird release.  You can find all the new sets at Butterfly Reflections Ink!

To start, I cut a piece of Arches hot press watercolor paper to A2 size.  Then, using distress stains I smooshed the colors on to the watercolor paper using a piece of acetate (you could substitute either distress inks or liquid watercolor to create the same look).  I choose a mix of yellows, pinks, oranges and reds to create this colorful look.  Then using gold ink, I splattered the background.  The panel was left to dry overnight. 



Winter Woods Overlay die was cut from white heavy weight cardstock and adhered using liquid glue to the background panel.  The sentiment from first snow stamp set was stamped using VersaMark ink and white heat embossed.  The bunnies from first snow were stamped on a separate piece of Bristol cardstock using Versafine Clair in nocturne.  Then I colored the images using zig real brush pens and a waterbrush.  Snowflake images from first snow and skating party were stamped on vellum using VersaMark ink and white heat embossed.  All the images were then cut using the coordinating dies.


The bunnies were foam mounted and the snowflakes were glued to the background using liquid glue. I added some white gel pen to accent the bunnies and a black glaze pen on their noses.


I hope you enjoyed this card!  I had so much fun creating the background!  Can't wait to share again with you next week!  Until then, have a lovely rest of your week!

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 …
