Cute and Simple Congrats Card

 Hi everyone! I'm super excited to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today, sharing a card I made! I was in need of a baby card and I decided to pull together some of my favorite brands and create a cute and simple card. Let's jump right in. 

I started with some blue card stock and used the new Heffy Doodle stencil Head in the Clouds. Instead of ink blending with a stencil, like I normally would, I used my white gel pen and outlined the openings of the clouds. I thought this was a fun chance of pace! I also added some highlight lines on each cloud to add some detail. It was super easy to do but adds a nice touch :) 

I used the Over Coffee ink by Catherine Pooler to stamp out some images by Lawn Fawn. I love this ink for stamping as well as for using with Copics! It always works SO well! I stamped out a couple images from the Really High Five stamps and colored them in. I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the card with some glue dots. Then I found some twine in my stash and used it for the balloon tail! I thought it was a fun detail. I like doing things like that on simple cards to add some interest. 

Finally, I stamped the 'congrats' sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Big Scripty Words stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed gold embossing powder over it. I love how it turned out! The final touch was to add a couple more white gel pen highlights to the bear and balloon and the card was complete! Thanks so much for stopping by to see my card :) I hope you have a wonderful day!

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
