How You Bean? Valentine

Hi everyone! With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, I've been having fun creating love themed cards. Today, I'm sharing a sweet Valentine's card using all Lawn Fawn. I just love mixing sets to create fun and whimsical scenes, so I had so much fun with this one!

To begin, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2" for my background. I ink blended it with Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink Pads. I splattered some clean water and some loosened Worn Lipstick with a paintbrush, and set aside to dry.

Next, I cut some white cardstock using the Foursquare Backdrop Die. Using foam tape , I attached the backdrop to my ink blended background, then adhered that to an A2 card base.

I then stamped all the images using black Memento ink from the following sets:

How You Bean? Stamp Set (jar and lid)/ Dies
How You Bean? Conversation Heart Add-On (conversation hearts, sentiment)/ Dies
Love Poems Stamp Set (mouse with sign)/ Dies
You're Just My Type Stamp Set (sitting mouse, Love You sentiment)/ Dies
Llama Tell You Stamp Set (speech bubble)/ Dies

All images were then colored with Copic markers.
Mice: W0, W1, W2, W4, R20, R00
Jar: B000, N0, N2, N4, N6
Hearts: G000, G00, G02(green heart), Y00, Y02, Y13(yellow heart), B000, B00, B02(blue heart), RV10, RV13, RV21(pink heart), YR000, YR00, YR02(orange heart)

I added white highlights to my colored images with a white gel pen, and cut put with the coordinating dies.

Next, I arranged my colored images onto my card, and attached with 3D foam squares for dimension.

Finally, to complete my card, I stamped the sentiment from the How You Bean? Conversation Heart add-on onto a strip of Black Licorice cardstock with an Embossing Ink Pad and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends! Have a great 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
