Hay, Girl! Hay!

Good morning, friends! It's Cassie here with a couple cards for you today. I'm one of the many who were drooling over the new My Favorite Things release, so today I used two sets for the same card design.

I followed Jennifer McGuire's example and started by cutting my cardstock to 3 1/2 by 11. Then you score the paper at 4 inches from one edge and 2 1/2 inches from the opposite edge. The flaps overlap and that will be where you place your die to cut the opening flap. I used the Sunny Studio Fishtail Banner dies. I made sure that the two flaps were over lapping where the die was going to makes the cuts. After the cuts were made I started stamping.
For this card I used the Llama Love stamp set's cactus images to create a pattern for the background. To color them in I used multiple green Copic combinations. I stamped, colored in, and fussy cut one of the llamas. I LOVE these adorable llamas. I think this is probably my favorite stamp set to date for MFT! Next I took the Stitch Line Circle die and colored it with an orange Copic marker for a pop of color. It's hard to see in this picture, but it gave a good point of interest! Then I stamped the sentiment on some kraft cardstock, cut it down and adhered it to the top flap.
For the second card I did nearly the exact same thing. I used the Harvest Buddies stamp set. I used the adorable raccoon, and nature scene building images. The sentiment I used was too big to place the same way as the first one so I put it on the bottom flap instead.
Alright! That's it for me today. I hope your all having a great hump day! I'm going to head back to the craft cave and keep working with my new MFT haul! Did you get anything from the new release? If so what?! I'll see you all again soon with another card :)

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…

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 …

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&#…
