Out of this world birthday

Hello crafty friends! I hope you're all doing well. Gladys here and I'm happy to be back on the BRI blog today. I have a colorful and cute slimline birthday card to share with you so let's get started shall we....

First I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Trinity stamps slimline series stitched card panel die. To create my colorful background I blended blueprint sketch, salty ocean, wilted violet, picked raspberry and spiced marmalade distress oxide inks. I splashed some water with a brush and I also added white specks for added interest.

I placed the card panel to the side to let it air dry so I can start coloring my images. I stamped the cute critters from Mama Elephant's newest release called little agenda spaceship. I colored them using copic markers and cut them out using their coordinating dies. I then cut some clouds from white cardstock and vellum.

Next I adhered my images using foam tape for dimension. I heat embossed the sentiment from the little agenda stamp set using silver embossing powder. At this point I decided I wanted to add some balloons on the bottom of my card. I stamped and colored the balloons from Mama Elephant big news stamp set then cut them out using their coordinating dies. Then for the finishing touch I added star sequins and used white gelly roll pen to add highlights. I attached my card panel onto white card stock to give a white border and then cutout a blue cardstock using Trinity Stamp scalloped slimline die. I really love how this card turned out and I hope you like it too!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hugs and happy crafting!!

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

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
