Slimline Citrus

Hey everyone, it's Julianne here back with a slimline card featuring a newer stamp set by My Favorite Things, Main Squeeze! I have been wanting a citrus related stamp set but nothing was just right until MFT came out with this stamp set. So I grabbed it up as soon as it came out and finally decided to make these two cards to share with you.


I started out my stamping all of the main squeeze images onto some Bristol Smooth Watercolor paper since I planned on using my Karin Brushmarker Pros today. I stamped them all with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed them using clear embossing powder.


For my water coloring today I used the following colors: Canary, Gold, Apple and Grass. I decided to color in all of my images in yellow to be lemons but you could definitely do them as orange or limes. Once I had them all colored in I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out by running them thru my die cutting machine.


While die cutting I ran some more of that Bristol Smooth Watercolor paper thru using the Trinity Stamps Slimline Card Series Card Panels and Windows die set to die cut out my background panels for both of my cards today. I did some ink blending using Distress Oxide Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet.


Once my ink blending was done I splattered some water as well as some perfect pearls to both of my backgrounds before I started assembling both of my shaker cards. I used a variety of different sequin mixes for my shaker windows and adhered my ink blended panels down to my card base using foam adhesive. I then adhered all of my images onto my card as well as some additional sequins throughout using liquid adhesive.

To watch how these two cards came together, you can watch below of in HD on YouTube.


I want to thank you all for stopping by I so appreciate it. Make sure to check out the rest of the blog for even more inspiration from the rest of the design team. Have a wonderful day 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 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&#…
