Happy birthday card with Annemarijn

Hi there! I'm back on the blog with a happy birthday card. These bears are having a birthday party with donuts, ice cream and other sweet treats. All you need on a party right? Let me show you how I made this card. 


First I stamped the images that I was going to use. I used memento ink on copic friendly paper. I stamped the bears from snow much fun and den sweet den. The sweets I stamped are from sweet friends and unicorn picnic. The birthday hats I stamped from yeti or not. Next I colored the images with copic markers and cut them. 


Then I adhered all the images together and I thought it would be fun to have the big bear holding a the big donut. Next I made the background and I used the perfectly plaid cardstock from lawn fawn. I love making cute backgrounds with distress oxide, but sometimes when I'm a bit lazy and don't want to get dirty hands I just use cute cardstock (and I'm a cute cardstock hoarder so need to use it sometimes). I choose to make a slimline card so there is plenty of room for my bears. I used the slim card basics from mama elephant but every slimline die you want would work.


Next I die cut a cute background from some spiffy speckles cardstock with the scalloped part from the scalloped slimline die from lawn fawn. Last but not least I stamped a sentiment from the big scripty words in lawn fawn ballet slippers ink. I adhered everything together with glue tube and foam squares and that was it for this card. 



I hope you like my happy birthday card and see you next week with another card. 

Lots of love,
Annemarijn

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

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

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
