Hi Everyone!  Happy Sunday!  I'm sharing with you this card I created using color inspiration from the February mood board.  

Below are a list of supplies I used to create this card.

To start, I used an A2 size Bristol smooth white card stock and masked the bottom portion using purple tape.  Then using the darkest to lightest inks, I ink blended the colors to create an ombre gradient.  I then applied the stencil and dabbed on some white pigment ink to create the heart pattern.  After the panel was dry, I cut it using the largest die from the outside in stitched stackables set.  I cut a small strip from the bottom of the panel using the slide on over die and adhered a slider element to a small piece of paper to create the slider mechanism.
A piece of ballet slipper cardstock was cut using the largest die from the large stitched 4 bar rectangles die.  The ink blended panel was mounted to the background panel using foam tape.  Make sure your slider element is intact before adhering the two panels together!

Images from the bicycle built for you stamp set were stamped onto Neenah 110lb cardstock using black ink.  The images were colored using copics and cut using the coordinating die set.  I then used some strong tape to adhere the bicycle with the couple to the slider element.  Now the slider is set!
The sentiment was stamped using black ink on white cardstock after cutting the banner using the fancy banner die.  I adhered the center of the banner using foam tape and glued the banner border around the sentiment to make it pop!

To add extra detail, I used the MFT mixed heart pieces and glued them to the bottom of the card.  A white gel pen was used to add accents to the images and glossy accents was used to add shine to the bicycle.  And that completes the card!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

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
