Hi, Friends! Rebekah here today!  Remember in my post a few weeks ago when I said I have a thing for mailboxes? Well, this week's card is further proof of that! 

I used the Reverse Confetti Mouse Mail stamp set, which I am just in love with!
For the background I first randomly stamped the envelopes  from the set in a soft gray ink all over the cardstock and then masked them using the Inkadinkado Masking Paper and then stamped over the panel with the My Favorite Things Lined-Up-Dots background stamp. My Favorite Things Cement Gray would work great for this!

I colored the mailbox and the Mouse using copic markers and popped them up with foam tape.

I used the My Favorite Things Oval Stitched Frames and mounted the little mouse and some of the envelopes on the inside of the frame. The outside of the frame is popped up using craft foam. 
I stamped my sentiment using Versa Mark Ink and covered it with Ultra Fine Embossing Powder and heat set it.
I also added a few small hearts from a MFT Blueprints Die set for a little more embellishment!

I then cut out the sentiment using the My Favorite Things Stitched Fishtail Banners Die. Because I wanted to have the fishtail on both ends I had to use a partial die cutting technique. 

To partial die cut this banner I laid the paper and die out according to the picture below and ran it threw my die cutter.

I then set the die back over the die cut banner and aligned it up with the previous cut. You can feel the die as it pops back into where the die has already cut.

For the second cut I aligned the paper and die as seen below and ran it again threw my die cutter.

 And this is the results!
A perfectly cut, custom size banner!

  1. This is absolutely ADORABLE!!! I love every single detail---your stamped background, that sweet little mouse, the mailbox, all of those envelopes, the stitched banner!!!! Totally fabulous!

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

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
