Snow Much Fun

Hello, there!  It's Andrea here with my last post as a DT member.  I can't believe how quickly the past four months have flown by!  I have had such a blast on this team and am so grateful for this amazing experience.  Now, enough chit chat; how about some cards?
When I first saw Honey Bee Stamps' Snow Birds set, I knew I had to have it!  These birds are just so cute and fun to color that I couldn't resist coloring almost all of them (I didn't have time to get them all on cards yet, but soon, I hope)!  All of the birdies were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  Naturally, I added some highlights and details with my white gel pen.
To create the snow angel on my first card, I stamped the outline image and cut it out.  For this project I used the negative piece and saved the die-cut to use later.  I popped that negative panel on top of the colored image with foam tape and adhered them to a white card.
With MFT Stamps' Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, I die-cut a black banner.  I stamped a phrase from Snow Birds with Versamark ink and white heat-embossed it.  I went around the snow angel cut-out with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay and added my sentiment underneath with foam tape.  Some Neat & Tangled Snowfall Sequins finish the card.
For my second card, I decided to make a fun scene.  The sky was created by ink-blending Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean distress inks.  I die-cut two snowy hills, adhered the back hill to my sky panel, and added some Tumbled Glass to create a shadow for the front hill.
Using my MISTI I stamped a sentiment from Snow Birds with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat-embossed it.  I popped up the front hill with foam tape and adhered my birds to the panel, adding some foam tape behind the hat of the bird in the foreground.  Finally, I glued the whole thing to a white card.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a happy and blessed New Year!

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 …
