Christmas Agenda

Happy Tuesday!  I am super excited to be here to share with you a card I recently made.  I have been coloring a lot lately and not making much with what I was coloring.  So I forced myself to sit down and make one.  I was inspired by a card made by Sharna Waksmulski.  I saw it on her instagram at @cardsbysharna.  Go check it out.  So here is my take on that card:

Here is how I made it:
I stamped the images from the Mama Elephant stamp sets of Little Snowman Agenda, Little Reindeer Agenda and Little Santa Agenda. I colored them with my copic markers and then cut them using the Little Snowman Agenda Dies, Little Reindeer Agenda Dies and Little Santa Agenda Dies and set them aside.  I took some colored cardstock and trimmed it down to 4"x 5 1/4" and inked up the edges with Distress Oxide Ink in Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet.    I then did the same with a strip of the same cardstock. Taking my metallic watercolors, I splattered an icy blue onto the cardstock and let it dry. Next I adhered the inked panel to a white card base.   I then stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Simply Winter Sentiments on the strip of cardstock and adhered it to the card front.  The next step was to adhere the cute snowman, santa and reindeer to the front of the card with foam adhesive.  To finish it off, I adhered some clear confetti from Pretty Pink Posh.

Here is a better view of what the splatter looks like:

Hope you have a fantastic Tuesday and enjoy the rest of your week!

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
