For the Love of Cocoa!

YAY!  So happy to be back with you all today!  Today I am going to share with you a card that I absolutely love.  



So this Thanks A Latte set from Lawn Fawn is perfect!  Truly.  I loved that it has a cocoa sentiment as I inhale cocoa.  I love it.  I am an addict.  After seeing this set, I happily set to work on this card.



I started by cutting the cute patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn 6x6 Knit Picky Fall paper pad  down to fit my A2 card base and adhered it to the card.  I die cut the Lacy Heart  from white cardstock.  Using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink I stamped the images, colored the mug, contents and marshmallows (aren't they the cutest!) with Copic markers.  After die cutting them out with the matching dies, I took another piece of patterned paper, stamped and cut out the scarf and adhered it to the mug.  Then I began to assemble the rest of the card.  I adhered the mug to the heart with foam adhesive and then adhered the heart to the card with foam adhesive as well.  I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of cardstock and adhered it to the card front.  I added the cute marshmallows with more foam adhesive.  I gave the marshmallow cheeks that extra touch with a white gelly roll pen to finish off the card.  Oh and not to be remiss, I added a little shimmer to the marshmallows with my Wink of Stella clear pen.


Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did!  Have a wonderful day!!

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 …
