You Make My Heart Soar

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today, I have a fun slimline Valentine's Day card for you, using Sunny Studio stamps. I have been long admiring Sunny Studio Stamps, and finally bought my first set, Plane Awesome...and it is!!

I absolutely adore the January Butterfly Reflections Ink Mood board, so I let the gorgeous color palette be the inspiration for this card!


To begin, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 3 1/4 X 8 1/4". I made a cloud stencil 
by cutting 2 borders using Puffy Cloud Borders Lawn Cuts, and taping together to make a long stencil. I inked my clouds using Distress Oxides in Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender, Picked Raspberry, and Shaded Lilac, alternating the cloud pattern for more interest. Then, I splattered some clean water onto my panel and some thinned out Shaded Lilac using a paintbrush, and set aside to dry.

Next, I stamped the cute images from Plane awesome onto bristol smooth cardstock with the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad. All images were colored with Copic markers and highlights were added with a White Glaze Jelly Roll Pen. Then, all my colored images were cut using the Plane Awesome Dies.

Next, I arranged the images onto my inked background, adhered the planes and critters with  3D foam squares  for dimension. The clouds and little hearts were attached to my card using this adhesive.

Finally, to finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment from Plane Awesome in black Memento ink and attached to my card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hopefully, I've inspired you to play along with the January mood board...I can't wait to see what you all create!!

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
