Christmas Card Crunch Time with GD Lisa Lahiff + A Sale




Hello, it's Lisa here with you today!  I am so excited to get to pop in on the blog today as a Guest Designer!  As we are inching closer to the Holidays we are also inching closer to the cut off date for having your Holiday Cards in the mail so they can be enjoyed in time.  While I have made plenty of cards for others to send out, I have yet to make any for myself. (yikes!) So today I have three cards to get me going in the right direction and that are easy to make/mass produce. ( Please excuse the photo quality as it has been rather rainy here the last couple days making it hard to get a great shot, grrr! )


For all of these cards I started by stamping my sentiments from the My Favorite Things Hand Lettered Holiday Stamp Set (which happens to be on sale, yay!) with Versafine Ink.  I also used the same stencil by My Favorite Things called Snowfall (also on sale!).  For the above card I chose to cover it with white embossing paste and Ranger Distress Rock Candy Stickles. While you can't see the shine in this photo, it is so pretty in person!



For my second card I went over my stencil with Ranger Paint Dabber in Gold Metallic.  I then used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die to cut the center out at an angle and then adhere it straight to add some interest.



My third card screams traditional by using the new Lucky Clover Distress Ink pad and went over the stencil with Barn Door Distress Ink Pad in various areas.

And there you have it!  Three cards that are all unique ( to keep me from getting bored when mass producing, hehehe! ) using two main supplies and making the most of them!

Now don't forget that there is an amazing sale going on right now in the store where you can still get 20% off your entire purchase! PLUS: Christmas items are already a 10% off and there is a clearance section too! Double Score!

*** For today only every $30 spent gets a free Zig Clean Color Marker! 11/29/15

Happy Crafting/Shopping!

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 will work the same.  It&#…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …
