Here Comes Santa Paws and a December Daily title page

Hey guys!  Jung here with a cute Santa doxie card and the title page for my 2015 December Daily album.  I will be using my new Memory Box Santa Paws stamp set and matching dies.

First up is my Santa paws card.  I have a little dorkie (dachshund and yorkie mix) named Emma, so I'm obsessed with all things dachshund/doxie/hot dog/wiener dog!  LOL!



I stamped out the pups, tress, and Christmas extras with memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored in the images with Copic markers, and then die cut them using the matching dies.  For the snowy background, I used a piece of patterned paper from the Juniper Berry 6x6 paper pad by Basic Grey.  After putting my scene together, I added some Christmas sparkle with my Stickles glitter bottle.

For my December Daily title page, I went for a clean and simple look using colors that I'm gravitating toward for this year's album (inspired by Pinkfresh Studio's Christmas wishes line).


I cut down a piece of watercolor paper to the size that I liked, and punched holes to fit my album.  (I like that you'll be able to see the other pages behind it.)  I stamped 3 tress using the Memory box Santa Paws stamp set, and December 2015 along with our last name using Lawn Fawn's Milo's ABCs stamp set.  I used Versamark ink and heat set it with gold embossing powder.  Then, I water colored the trees using some distress inks.  Clean, simple, and easy!

That's it for me!  I hope you're enjoying the beginning of December.  Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to get your shopping on at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  Happy Wednesday!

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 …
