Sending Joy

Hello and welcome back to the Butterfly Reflections blog! Gladys here and I'm back to share this holiday card for you. I used mostly Lawn Fawn products and added a few things here and there to make this simple and adorable scene.  
I first die cut white cardstock using the scallop frame from My Favorite Things. I then distressed it with chipped sapphire, faded jeans, shaded lilac and spun sugar. I stamped the images from two Lawn Fawn 2016 winter/fall stamp set: Snow Cool and Cheery Christmas. I colored them with copic markers and cut them using the coordinating dies. Then I heat embossed the sentiment from Merry Messages using silver embossing powder. I added foam tapes on the back of the die cuts for dimension. I wanted the critters to be standing/sitting on snow so I used my Uchida snow marker to add faux fur. If you haven't used this marker before I suggest you should. It's amazing and adds a real like texture. I have used it to add fur on critters or add texture to clothes. What I do is I pressed the marker down on a scratch piece of paper for the liquid to come out. Using the tip of the marker I dab the liquid onto my card and keep adding a little bit at a time. Then I used my heat tool until the liquid starts to puff up. Now you don't want to hold the heat tool on it too long because it will start to burn. I hope you give it a try! Lastly on my card I wanted to add some shimmer so I cut the scallop frame again from silver glitter cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by till next time! Have a fabulous weekend!

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
