Season's Greetings!

Yay it's Tuesday!  That means it's my turn on the blog.  I have been eyeing these super cute stamps by Hello Bluebird since I saw sneaks of them.  Truly.  I told Vanessa that these were a must have.  I was right.  Let's get to the instructions on how I made this card.


First I made an A2 card base with white cardstock.  I then took a piece of 110 lb white cardstock and blended Dried Marigold, Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord Oxide Inks to create the background.  I trimmed down the background to 3 3/4 x5"and adhered it to the card base.  Next I stamped the cute images from North Pole Littles with Gina K Amalgam Ink, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating North Pole Littles Dies to cut them out.   I used Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside dies to create a snowbank out of white cardstock which I trimmed and adhered to the card.  


Using thin foam adhesive squares I adhered all the cute images to the card.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Hello Bluebird Snow Play stamp set onto the card using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  To give the hillside some extra shimmer and a snowy look, I used my Lawn Fawn Glue Tube  and ran a bead of clue on the top and then applied glitter to it and let it dry.  I used a white Signo Uni Ball pen to add snow to give it the finished touch.


I hope you enjoyed the card and that it gets you into the Holiday Season that is on it's way!  Have a wonderful 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 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 …
