Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop 2017

Hi, Coffee Loving Friends!!! It's time for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!! HOORAY! You can find all the details and start the hop HERE.


Guess who?! Hold onto your hats... it's ME, Vanessa!!! LOL It's been AGES since I've made a card and I literally just created this on a pile of stuff that's been sitting on my desk in my craft room. Hey, but I got it done! Whatever works. hahahahaha  I started with a different idea in mind, but then my little cup decided to take on a snowman vibe and well, I went with it. It's amazing how indecisive one can be (that would be ME!!!) when making a card. I had cut the big chevies background out of grey and red, but then decided to go more "peppermint" with the red and white instead. Then I struggled with whether or not to add the arms for a solid 10 minutes. THIS, people, is why I hardly ever make stuff. :P He needed arms to give hugs and send the cup of cheer so arms he has! The sentiment is from MFT's Hug in a Mug stamp set. LOVE that set. <3


I hope you thoroughly enjoy the hop!!! Be sure to comment along the way for your chances to win some fabulous prizes including one from the shop. If you feel like shopping and supporting the sponsors, you can use the code WARMUP10 for 10% off your order in my shop through Sunday, 12/10.

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 …
