Picked for you with Davina

Hello my inky fingered friends. Davina here on the blog, sharing a slimline card that I made using the current April Mood Board and the new Hello Bluebird release. This was my first chance to unwrap these adorable stamps, and I chose to use the Picked For You set and a sentiment from Happy Wishes.

I wanted to make a tall slimline card so that I could build a woods filled portion on the top of the panel. I cut a stitched slimline panel using the middle size Trinity Stamps Slimline Series Stitched panels,  from Neenah and Bristol cardstock. I stamped the trees across the top by creating a little mask for the right tree. Then using the stamped grass below the trees as a guide, I cut the Bristol panel using the curved Grassy Knoll Dies. I cut the remaining  piece with the hilly grassy die to create my bottom layer.

I copic colored the trees with very light tans, and the visible strips of sky in an ombré sunset of light orange into yellow. I didn’t want to bring a whole lot of attention the green grass, since green isn’t in the color board, so I gently inked the grass layers in Old Paper and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks. Making sure to leave plenty of white space. I colored the remainder of my stamped images using the colors of the color board and giving my sweet little girl some sherbet hued strawberry blond hair, very reminiscent of my little nieces.

After highlighting my images with small white dots, I got to work building my scene. I used a variety of adhesives to create my panel. I glued the tall grass layer directly over the bottom panel and used foam tape to attach the short layer. Then I adhered the remainder of my images. I finished it off by mounting it atop of some light pink striped Doodlebug Designs paper and adding a few iridescent jewels.

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…

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 …

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&#…
