Poppy Stamps Poinsettia Peace

Happy Monday (ugh)!!  Laurie here to share a very golden and very simple Christmas card.  I ordered the Poinsettia Peace stamp set awhile ago and decided to use it for my project today.  I adore these small stamp sets from Poppy Stamps.  They are always so cute and unique AND affordable!!!  They often have matching die sets, but this particular set does not.

I started by lining the "peace" sentiment up on a piece of 3.5 X 5.5 inch piece of kraft cardstock.  Using my Mini Misti, I was able to stamp the sentiment perfectly by simply sliding the cardstock either up or down using the grid paper.  This would have been an impossible task for me before that tool!!  I used Versamark ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder.



It looked a little plain, so I coloured in the letters using a red marker and also swiped the Versamark pad along the edges and added some more embossing powder.


For the poinsettia, I gold heat embossed it, as well as four leaves onto some vellum.  I fussy cut each image out, flipped them over and coloured the back of each one with a red and green alcohol marker.


I adhered my sentiment panel with from tape to a white card base.  Then it kind of went downhill.  I adhered the flower with some Multi Medium Matte adhesive on the edge of the panel.  What I should have done was adhere the leaves first...I had to peel the flower off which ripped the cardstock underneath, then when I went to reattach everything, it didn't want to stick, grrr.  Anyway, I persevered and everything finally stuck, a little wonky, but stuck!!



I hope you've had a chance to enjoy one of these cute sets, if not, I encourage you to try one.  They all offer so many possibilities and for such a great price!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great week!!

Laurie

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&#…
