Have a Happy Day Card by Tina

Hello crafty friends, Tina here with a colorful rainbow card for you today!

To start I stamped all my images on Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock
   Sunny Studio Heart Bouquet three times
   The cute fox from Lawn Fawn Scootin’ By

This card needed a bit of preparation because it involved selecting an assortment of copic markers. But once that selection is made, the coloring itself is a breeze.

I die cut the images and placed the 3 balloon bouquets on top of each other so I could decide which balloon needed which color to create a rainbow effect from the bottom to the top.

Copics used

Reds        R22, R24, R37                                Orange    YR07, Y38
Yellow     Y15, Y19, Y02                                 Green      G12, YG11
Teal         BG11, BG13, BG34                         Blue         B91, B93, B95
Purple      V06, V09, V15                                 Fox: E39, E08, E31, E51, YR27, R20

For the background I inked up a rectangle stitched panel with distress oxides inks in dark colors (Chipped Sapphire, Shaded Lilac, Villainous Potion). The clouds were added using white pigment ink and the MFT Mini Cloud Edges stencil.
  
I wanted my little fox to fly among the clouds so I die cut two cloud borders, one from white cardstock and the second sparkly one from Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust. I glued both borders to the background panel.

Finally, I pulled out a banner die from my stash and a sentiment from the Scootin’ By set.

I glued the background panel to a white card base and added foam to adhere all the images.

A scattering of Honey Bee Crystal Clear Gem stickers gives the illusion of shining stars.

And that finishes the card for today!
Thank you for being here and see you soon, Tina

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
