Baaah Humbug Christmas Tags with Audrey

Hello there!! Audrey here!  Can you believe it's Christmas Eve?!  Holy sheep, did this year go fast!!  Speaking of sheep, I couldn't let the holiday season come to a close without using one of my most favorite stamp sets of 2015, Lawn Fawn's Baaah Humbug!  I just can't get enough of these cute little critters!  I needed to make gift tags for a few packages, and these are the perfect size!  I stamped and colored the standing sheep, a bunch of packages and Santa hats, and then diecut them all with the coordinating Baaah Humbug dies.  To create a tag, I diecut the sheep 6 more times, this time, with no stamping, so it was just the sheep shape (say that 5 times fast!).  I punched a tiny hole the the top of the blank sheep, and added a horizontal score line just below the hole.  Before adhering the front of the tag, I threaded some red and white twine through the holes, and then glued the two pieces together with a strip of scor-tape.  I wanted a very strong adhesive to make sure that the did not come apart.  I gave each sheep a present to hold, which I popped up with foam tape, then added a Santa hat to each, and accented with a white gel pen.

Since I am the only person in my family to make my gift tags, everyone knows who the present is from and there is no need to sign the tag, so I just stamped the name of each recipient using Milo's ABCs and Lobster ink.

That's all for me today!!  I wish you all a blessed Christmas with your families!!

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 …
