Are You YETI for Christmas?!

I am! I'm YETI for Christmas! Haha! Hello! Lynnea here with a card project featuring the new My Favorite Things Beast Friends stamp set. This is a must have for Christmas and everything else! These little Yetis are to DIE for! Let's get started! Remember to head over to the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Shop to pick up any or all of the supplies I've used!




Here's my card! I started by stamping out images from the new MFT Beast Friends stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with various Copic markers and cut them out with scissors. Don't worry! If you're not a fussy cutter, the shop has the matching dies in stock HERE. I used the MFT Stitched Snow Drifts Dies to cut out two hills and the Lawn Fawn Little Town Border Die to make a little town in the background. I wanted to give some color to my houses, so I used a blender tool to add three colors of Distress Ink to my houses: Crushed Olive, Evergreen Bough, and Peacock Feathers. I used Tumbled Glass to make a light blue sky and Hickory Smoke to add some shading to my snowdrifts.




This card wouldn't be me without some sparkle! And lucky me! I finally caved and bought the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen! It is so sparkly! I couldn't capture all of the sparkle on camera! I used the sparkle pen to blend out the gray Distress Ink on my hills and on the red accents to my Yeti. After adding the sparkle, I added white accents to the scarf and the present using a White Gelly Roll Pen.

That's all! I'm so excited for Christmas! It's my favorite time of the year and I can't believe it's a mere 2 months away! Hooray!! Don't forget to pick up all of the things you need for your crafty habit at the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Shop! Have a great day!

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 …
