Another Birthday?

Hi peeps! How's thing going? Vera here today on this beautiful Saturday. 

I am an animal lover at heart and for those that knows me personally, know that I am a huge dog lover. I am especially drawn to pug, but I love dogs in general. So, when I saw this Crazy Dogs Stamp Set, of course I have to have it (even though they don't have any pug on this set, hah!).

There's just something about their wild eyes that call to me. Hm... does that make me weird? Maybe, but I am okay with that. ;) I have a dear friend that loves dachshund and this particular dog reminds me of her dog, so I am making this card for her. I colored it with Copic and then fussy cut the dog. I don't have the matching dies, yet, so fussy cutting it is.

Aside from the dog, to make this card, I used mostly My Favorite Things products. I die-cut a stitched panel using the largest dies from Die-namics Double Stitched Rectangle STAX and framed it with patterned paper from Plaid Pattern 6x6 Paper Pack. On this scene, this li'l doggy is celebrating with a little tennis ball cake top with candle (from Piece of Cake set; the sentiment also from the same set). The inside greeting say: Piece of cake. :)

I hope this wiggly eyed pup makes you smile and may the rest of your weekend be filled with things that makes you happy. Enjoy your weekend and thank you for stopping by here. Cheers....

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

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

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
