Sending You All the Hearts with Beata

Hi crafty friends! Beata June here popping by to share this card with all the hearts πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’– using Mama Elephant stamps. 

I used the following Mama Elephant stamp sets to make this card:

To start things off, I stamped out the toy machine from the new Mama Elephant Lil Toy Machine stamp set, colored it with copic markers and cut it out.  This little toy machine is the cutest and I have so many ideas on all the stuff I can fill it up with!  For this card, I decided to fill up my toy machine with hearts to send as a Valentine's Day card πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’– so I stamped hearts from the Lil Toy Machine stamp set and the Boba Tea stamp set, colored them with copics, and cut them out.  You may know that I love all the critters 😍 and I wanted to add some friends for the little guy on top of my toy machine so I stamped the adorable ducky and bunny with heart balloons from the Up With Love stamp set, colored them with copics, and cut them out.
For my background, I wanted to match the color of my little hearts inside the toy machine so I blended shaded lilac, spun sugar, and squeezed lemonade distress oxide inks using my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes on my white card base, and then splattered it with water and various pink colored paint.  Then I glued the little hearts to the inside of my toy machine, and then glued my toy machine and heart balloon holding critters onto my blended card base. 

Next, I stamped the "Sending You All the Hearts" sentiment from the Up With Love stamp set onto a piece of white card stock, added a purple heart I colored with copics from the Boba Tea stamp set, cut out the sentiment strip and glued it to the bottom of my card.

Lastly, I added white highlights to my colored images with a Sakura white glaze jelly roll pen.

Here's my finished card:
I love this little toy machine filled with all the hearts! πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’–πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’– And I'm super excited about all the other cute stuff I can fill this little toy machine with.

Thanks for reading along today.  I'll be back again next week to share more crafty fun ideas! 

Crafty hugs,
Beata June πŸ’šπŸ’š

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

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 vel
