A Cup of Cheer

Hey Crafters!

I'm happy to see you all here on the blog today!

Today I'm sharing a festive holiday card that's sure to drive the chill of the season right away!

This card can be very easily mass produced, so definitely keep it in your arsenal to use for quick and simple holiday cards.

Start out by stamping an image from the Hero Arts Coffee Cup Tags stamp set on to white cardstock. You can combine or use any of the images from the set to create the completed coffee cup image your heart desires! I chose to use the cup, whip cream, and holly leaf images.

I also used the coffee cozy image for my sentiment area and added a little bit of copic marker shading to the coffee cozy and the whip cream image.

Use a clean and simple panel die to trim down that coffee image and then adhere it on to a piece of patterned paper that has a subtle pattern. Using a subtle pattern will make the two card elements refrain from competing with each other, visually.

For an added matte on the card, you can trim down the completed panel just a bit before adhering it to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base. And BOOM! You're all done!

Thanks again for stopping by today and happy crafting!


Other Supplies Used:

Inks: Lobster, Spruce, Black Licorice
Copic Markers: C1, C3, R29


  1. This is so much fun! I'm going to feature it in the Coffee Loving Papercrafters FB page!

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

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 vel
