Christmas Ornaments with Lawn Fawn

Hey friends!

It's Jess and I'm thrilled to be back for another post this week! The Christmas season is upon us and I don't know about you, but I've been wanting to branch out and try new things when it comes to Christmas projects this year. I saw this idea on Instagram (Jessica Frost-Ballas) and just HAD to try it out!



To start things off, I used the My Favorite Things Inside Out Stitched Circle Stax to cut three circles from white card stock for each ornament. This gave me six circles all together since I made two orgnaments. On two of the circles, I did some ink blending with Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick, and Spun Sugar. I've been loving this color combination for winter sky backgrounds this year!

Next, I used some white gesso to flick on some white drops. This gave the effect of a snowy sky. I really like how this turned out! For my ornaments, I chose two Lawn Fawn sets - Winter Skies and Home for the Holidays. These had perfectly sized stamps for this project. I colored the stamped images with Copic markers and then fussy cut them. I also used a little Marshmallow Puff embossing powder on the bottoms of my scenes to give the effect of snow.



I used these really cool ornaments I picked up from my local craft store for the actual ornament part. They split apart in the center so you can fill them and then put them back together, but I actually just used half for each ornament. This is awesome because you get double for the price of one!

I stamped a sweet message on the back of two of my circles - 'wishing you and your family a magical Christmas' so there'd be a nice message if I decide to give these as gifts. Then, I layered all of my circles together (three for each ornament). This helped make the back of the ornament more rigid so it didn't cave in if you press on the back.



I filled the ornament part with all kinds of glitter and sequins and then I glued the ornament fronts onto my die cut circles. I tied some pretty ribbons on for hanging and that finished off my ornaments. I really love the way these came out and I'm so thrilled I decided to give Jessica's project a try. So cute!

Hugs and love to you all,

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 …
