Suns Out, Buns Out!

Hello there!
Samantha here today, and I'm happy to share a fun, summery card!
Because it's still hotter than hades here in South Carolina, and we're still longing for some beach days! ha!

I used a combination of Avery Elle stamps and Lawn Fawn dies for this card!
Let's check it out, shall we?


eeeep!
So cute!
As SOOOOON as I saw the Suns Out stamp set, I could NOT stop laughing! I knew it had to be mine! lol! I also stamped the speech bubble from Speech Bubbles!
I fussy cut my images out, but you could use the coordinating dies to die cut yours out speedy Q!

I added some Icicle Stickles to the unicorn's horn...because....glitter!
So then you know I had to add some Glossy Accents to the sunglasses for some shine!

My images were colored with Zig Clean Clear Real Brush Markers, and the background is where it gets fun (and inky!)!!


I used Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire and Mermaid Lagoon to create the watercolored background!
I smooshed the ink onto some plastic packaging, spritzed it with water, and then pressed it to the background of my white cardstock, in both colors!
Once it was dry, I used the same colors and did just a smidge of ink blending on top, in the coordinating colors!
I finished off by die cutting some waves with Lawn Fawn's Sandy Beach Accent Dies!

The sentiment is from Peek-a-Boo Summer Pals!

I finished the card by adding some 'bubbles' with Studio Katia's Clear Round Drops Mix 2!

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&#…
