Warm Wishes Hedgehog

Hi peeps. Vera here today. The day before Christmas, where everything last minute is being done. Hah... For me, that means house cleaning as we're getting ready for company tomorrow. Sounds fun, right? ;)

Anyhoo..., I  managed to squeeze in time to make this fun slider mini card. I am short on Christmas cards this year (and behind), so even now, I am still working on Christmas cards. I think that's the only downfall of being known as card maker, your family and friend expect handmade card from you. No store bought  cards. Here's what my card looks like at first glance.




Then, you pull the tag out and slowly it reveals a more colorful look.




Taadaaaa, here's how the card and the tag looks once the tag full pulled out. Like magic it showed a colored version.




Let's start with the card base. To add subtle pattern to the card base, I stamped the card base with MFT Sweater Stitch Background stamp. Oce that done, I created the frame using MFT Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame dies. I cut a piece of cardstock that's the same size as the frame and layered both with foam adhesive on the right, left and bottom edge.

Then I worked on the tag, which I cut using  MFT Die-namics Stitched Traditional Tags. I die cut the tag twice. Once on a piece of acetate and once on a piece of cardstock.

Then, using my misty, I stamped the hedgehog from MFT Happy Hedgehog set and the sentiment from MFT Hand Lettered Holiday set on both tags. On the acetate I stamped the image using Staz On. The one on the cardstock I colored with Copic and the on eon  the acetate I just leave it the way it is. Then carefully layered (so the image lined up perfectly) and glued the acetate piece to the cardstock piece. I cut another tag and trim it, to adhere it to the top of the tag where I stamp the word "pull here".

Oh yes, I also added some puffy snow line using Nuvo Crystal Drops Duck Egg Blue. Let it dry and once it dry, simply slip in the tag inside the frame. The acetate part lay on top of the cardstock underneath the scallop frame and the colored piece lay under the blank cardstock piece. I hope that makes sense.

Well peeps, I still have lots of things to do, so that's all from me. I hope you enjoy this fun magic card. And, I'd like to wish you all a very merry Christmas. May your Christmas be a joyful one.

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 …
