Sunny Studio--Cheery Scene Card


Good morning, friends!  Amy Copeland here, guest designing for the blog.  You are in for a real treat with the new design team, loads of inspiration heading your way! :)  I couldn't resist using this super cute Sunny Studio stamp set to make an uplifting (ha, get it?!) scene card for you today.

I started out by stamping out the images from Balloon Rides on white cardstock using copic friendly ink, then colored them in with Copic markers.  After I colored in my little scene images, I cut them out using the coordinating dies.  I then got to work on the background elements--I used a blending brush to blend Lawn Fawn Forget Me Not ink through a Cloudy Stencil onto heavyweight white cardstock.  I used a Simple Stitched Hillside Border die on Cilantro cardstock, then stamped my sentiment with Versamark ink, sprinkled on white embossing powder and heat embossed it using a heat tool.  I blended a little bit of Cilantro ink onto the stitched edge of the "grass" for a little depth and dimension.  After I finished my grass piece, I adhered it to the bottom of my sky piece using liquid glue.

Before adding my images to the card, I added a few little details to make the card pop.  I used Glossy Accents on the "buttons" of the balloon and the windows of the house, and added some sparkle to the clouds, sun, and bunting on the hot air balloon using a glitter pen like this one.

After the Glossy Accent dried, I adhered some elements using the same liquid glue as before and some elements using foam adhesive.  I then prepared an A2 card base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) and adhered my card panel on top.  Hope you enjoyed today's card and that it inspires you to make a cute scene card for yourself--it's one of my favorite types of cards to make! :)

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

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
