Hearts and Hugs

Hey there, friends! Its Rebekah here sharing a card I made using the Flicker Heart Die from Memory Box and the Avery Elle Simply Said Love Die!



For this card, I used the die over an entire card panel, shifting it slightly each time before I ran it threw my die cutter. I saved all of the heart die cuts because I used them a little later on in my process.

I used foam tape to pop up the panel and I mounted it on a piece of Kraft cardstock. I then colored a few of the hearts with a marker. I placed them inside the heart panel here and there.

The Avery Elle Hugs Die comes with the background for the word 'hugs' and I cut it three times from white cardstock and glued them together. I also cut it once with red cardstock and adhered it using Multi Matte Medium, sifting it a little to the side so it could slightly be seen behind the white cardstock. For the word 'hugs' itself, I cut it from black cardstock and black craft foam and glued them together. I highly recommend using the Multi Matte Medium for this process because it will give you time to move the pieces to get them aligned perfectly and it drys clear. If you happen to get it anywhere it does not belong, don't worry! It will not be seen!  I then covered 'hugs' with glossy accents to make it really pop!



For the mats around the die cut heart panel I uses My Favorite Things Stitched Line Frames. I cut it once with black and once with kraft. I added the kraft colored frame over top of the black.I wanted to be sure to incorporate black somewhere else on the card to tie into the sentiment.

Here are a few other dies that could be used in a similar manner.

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 …
