"Yippee!" Vertical Slimline Rainbow Card by Beata

Hello crafty friends! Beata June here, and I'm back on the blog today sharing this vertical slimline rainbow card. ๐ŸŒˆ ๐ŸŒˆ

I used the new Mama Elephant Little Signage Agenda stamp set (coordinating die available here) to stamp out the cute critters holding the letters, colored them with copic markers.  I stamped on the letters from the Little Signage Agenda stamp set onto my colored critters to spell out the "YIPPEE!" and added white highlights using a white glaze jelly roll pen, then cut out the critters.  

To make my background, I cut a rectangle card panel from white cardstock using the smallest rectangle die from the Pinkfresh Studio Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles dies set.  I blended a rainbow of clouds on the rectangle card panel using a My Favorite Things Cloud Stencil and Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes with the following distress oxide ink pads:  squeezed lemonade, shaded lilac, worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, and tumbled glass.

Then I glued the colored critters holding the letter signs onto my rainbow cloud panel using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.  I adhered the rainbow cloud panel onto a piece of black cardstock using double sided tape, and then trimmed it to leave a 1/8" black border around the rainbow cloud panel.

Next, I cut out two diagonal stitched rectangles from white card stock using the Pinkfresh Studio Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles dies set.  I used double sided tape to adhere the card panel onto the smaller stitched rectangle panel, then adhered that to a piece of blue speckled cardstock, then adhered that to a piece of black cardstock and trimmed it to leave another 1/8" black border, then mounted that onto the largest stitched rectangle panel.  Then I mounted the finished card panels onto my slimline card base.

I'm sending this card to my niece who loves animals to congratulate her for getting a big role in her school play she just auditioned for. ๐Ÿ’– ๐Ÿ’–
I hope you like this rainbow card. ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ   I love these cute Mama Elephant Little Signage agenda critters!

Crafty hugs,
Beata June ๐Ÿ’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

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
