North Pole

Hello, and welcome back to Butterfly Reflections Ink! It's Cassie here, and I've got a cute holiday card to share with you. Today's card uses a stamp set by Neat & Tangled called Santa's Wonderland. This set is so sweet!
I started by die cutting two of the largest rectangle from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables die set from Neenah Solar White card stock. Then I took the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders and die cut two snow banks from one of the rectangles. I used Distress Ink to color in the rectangle that was left whole to make it look like a night sky. Then I splattered the sky with water to make it look like a snow storm was coming down. I love a snowy sky for a holiday card!
I also added some light blue Distress Ink to the edges of the snow banks to give them a little color. Next I stamped the three images I wanted from the stamp set-the reindeer, penguin and pole-and colored them in with my Copic markers. I think these little cuties look just like they're trying to get decorated for the holidays! I fussy cut them all out and laid out my scene. Once everything was set I glued it down.
When I was laying out the scene I made sure to leave enough room for my sentiment, which was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. That wraps up my card for today! I hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I will see you 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 th

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

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
