Hello crafty friends, Nicky here with you today on the blog with a new stamp set by Reverse Confetti called Mouse Mail.  Did you hear already that Butterfly Reflections Ink is now selling Reverse Confetti Products?   Check them out under Newest Products because they are totally adorable!

For this card I repeatedly stamped my card panel with the sentiment 'sending smiles across the miles' in pale grey.  I then watercolour painted a grass strip with Distress Ink  in Twisted Citron and then die cut it using the Grassy Hillside Borders by Lawn Fawn.  Next I stamped the two mice and the letterbox with Archival Ink and then watercolor painted them delicately using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Watercolor Brush Pen.

Have you discovered the Uni-Ball Signo yet?  I'm addicted to this wonderful white pen.  It can really take your projects to the next level just through some simple highlighting with it.  Decide where your light source is coming from and highlight those points.  Here I used it on the mailbox and their blushing cheeks and I also made her dress a polkadot one - couldn't help myself!!!  All the components were added to the card using dimensional foam tape and I finished by framing out the scene using the largest frame from MFT's Die-Namics Pierced Rectangle Frames, stamping and attaching the sentiment tag and attaching a few scattered sequins using Ranger Multi Matte Medium which I've always found to be the very best glue for my card making needs and especially good for attaching sequins and other embellishments.

So, there you go, I hope this has inspired you to check out the Reverse Confetti stamps and dies now available at Butterfly Reflection Ink.  Have a wonderful week, thank you for stopping by the blog today and I will see you next time.  You can find and follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards, Facebook and Pinterest for more of my projects.  Thank you!

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
