Video Tutorial - Honey Bee Stamps - Hey Pumpkin!

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink.  I have a new card and video tutorial to share today using the adorable Hey Pumpkin Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps.  Here's today's video:

And here are some pictures of my card:







To create this card, I first stamped the image onto Canson XL watercolor paper.  Next, you could definitely cut out a mask and use that on top of your image, but I did not do that.  I found that the Cloud Stencil from My Favorite Things was so easy to work with, I could see through it so I simply placed it over my image and did my inking around the stamped image.  I used Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink for my inking.  I then removed the cloud stencil and did some light water spraying with my distress sprayer.  Next I colored the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I cut the panel down slightly and then stamped the sentiment.  I then adhered the panel to a standard sized A2 card.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Hugs!

Hugs, Christine

Video Tutorial - LDRS - Christmas Card with New Release Products


Hi everyone!  I'm here with you today to share a super fun Christmas card using several new dies from Little Darlings.

To create this card, I used some beautiful design paper from the Winnie Winter Land 6x6 Paper PackI then used some white cardstock for the bottom of the card and cut it out with the Snowy Day Border Die Set.  I then cut out Christmas Word Die with some light blue cardstock and then four pieces of white cardstock underneath to give it a slight shadow and some dimension.  Next, I  used the gorgeous Peace Ornament Die Set to cut out the beautiful ornament (I used light blue cardstock and silver glitter paper).  I added some blue twine to the hole the die makes in the ornament and tied a bow and then adhered the ornament to the cardstock panel using foam tape.  Finally, I adhered the entire cardstock panel to a standard white A2 card base.

Hi everyone!  I'm here today to share how I created a sweet Christmas card with Tombow Dual Brush water based pens.  Here's a video which explains exactly how I put this card together:
(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And some pictures:




To create this card, I first stamped the adorable Santa and chimney images from the adorable Holiday Peekaboo Stamp Set from Sweet Stamp Shop.  I then colored the image with the Tombow Markers and then cut it out with a stitched square die from my stash.  I then water colored my own striped background and then adhered everything to a 4 Bar notecard.  I also stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink onto some black cardstock and heat embossed it with some white embossing powder.  Finally, I added some black Nuvo Drops for a finishing touch.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!!!!

Video Tutorial - Creating a Fun Rainy Scene with Honey Bee Stamps, Stencils, and Embossing Paste

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Sorry for the late post tonight, but the weekend got away from me.  Lots of family activities, preparing for my husband's birthday which is tomorrow, and of course, finishing Stranger things Season Two! :)  But I finally have my card and video up for you.  I decided to create a fun rainy scene with a new image from Honey Bee Stamps.  I also did some stencil work with a new stencil from Honey Bee.  Here's my video:
(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:








To create this card, I first inked up the background.  I placed a piece of low tack tape onto some Canson XL watercolor paper to divide the cardstock.  I then inked the bottom with some Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink.  Next, I moved the tape to cover the Iced Spruce and inked the top 2/3 of the cardstock with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink and then spritzed the panel with water from my distress sprayer.  I then set that panel aside to dry.  I next inked up the gorgeous image from the Seasonal Sweeties Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps and stamped it onto  some Canson XL watercolor paper.  I then painted the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  Here are the Zig Colors I used:
Large Umbrella: Deep Red, Pale Rose
Hair: Light Brown, Brown
Scarf: Yellow, Brown
Jacket: Deep Red Pale Rose
Boots: Black
Skin: Flesh Color, Blush, Sugared Almond Pink
Dog Umbrella: Peacock Blue
Dog: Brown, Light Brown

Next, I cut the image out (but made a boo boo, so I fixed it by adding some black twine onto the umbrellas).  Next, I brought back over my distress inked panel and laid the rain drop stencil from the Fall Showers Stencil Set from Honey Bee Stamps on top of the panel and then placed some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Sparkle Texture Paste over top the stencil so it would lay inside the grooves of the raindrops and result in shimmery rain drops on the panel.  I then let that dry and then placed my colored image onto the panel with some foam tape.  Finally, I inked the sentiment with some Versamark Ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Finally, I added some Silver Lining Nuvo Crystal Drops onto the sentiment panel and then added some clear shimmery sequins to the main panel (which I adhered to an A2 sized notecard with foam tape).  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by and I hope you  have a wonderful day!!!

Kennedy Grace Creations - Water Coloring a Gorgeous Sunflower Image with Zig Markers and a Water Brush

Hi everyone!  I'm here today to share a card created using some gorgeous products from Kennedy Grace Creations.  Here's my card:





To create this card, I first stamped the beautiful sunflower image from the Beautiful Bloom - Sunflower Stamp Set with some Versamark Ink onto some Canson XL Watercolor Paper.  I then embossed the image with some white embossing powder.  Next, I painted the image with my Zig Markers and a water brush.  I used the following colors:
Center of Sunflower: Dark Brown and Brown
Petals: Brown, Yellow
Leaves and Stem: Green, Light Green

Next, I cut the water colored panel out with a stitched rectangle die and then adhered it to some design paper, then adhered the entire panel onto a standard A2 sized card base.  I stamped the sentiment, also from the stamp set, onto the panel.  I then adhered some beautiful sequins from the Lemon Sorbet Sequin Mix onto the panel.  This was a really easy card to put together, but I think it turned out lovely.  These gorgeous floral images from Kennedy Grace Creations make card making super easy :)

I really hope you liked my card for today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
