MFT Otters!!!

Happy Monday all! Kim here with you this morning featuring the wonderful MFT Otters!

I love otters, I keep telling my husband that if we lived in a warmer climate I would want one in the pool all year long! No can do in Montreal...


This one will double as a Valentine's Day card for one of my best friends, who loves otters too :)
This guy below was my inspiration from a Google search:


Look at that dude! Lol

For my card I started with a Neena Solar White card base and embossed it with a Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing folder. I then die cut my frames (Poppy Scribble Trio Frames) out of Kraft and Neena. The Kraft for the actual frame and the Neena to stamp my otters.  I Copic coloured my otters and tried to get the same colours as my inspiration photo (E42, E43, E44 and E47 for the body, E30, E31 for the nose surround and R22, R46, R37 and R59 for the heart). I made my own waves using B00, B02 and B04) I then used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky. I put my frames together and then used Stick It adhesive with craft foam and my red shiny card stock then die cut it with the Avery Elle Simply Said Hugs Elle-ments. I then embossed my "Otter" sentiment from the same MFT Otter set with white embossing powder and cut my black card stock to size. 

I put the last elements on the card and added some Neat and Tangled sequins from the Peppermint Stick Sequin Mix and I also die cut the hearts from the same foam/shiny paper with Lawn Fawn hearts.


Hope you all have a wonderful week! 
Kim

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 …
