Lawn Fawn Galore for One Last Christmas Card

Hey friends!

It's Jess, and I'm checking in for my very last card as a part of the Butterfly Reflections Ink Design Team. I can't believe how fast this term flew by - it's hard to believe it's over already! I will still you see you around the blog here and then, though! For my last card (I swore I wasn't making another Christmas card, but here we are), I went gaga for Lawn Fawn. I pulled out sets I've had in my stash for a while and got them inky!



To start off, I did some stamping and masking of my fireplace scene. These images came from Lawn Fawn's 'Cozy Christmas' set. I stamped my stockings first, then masked them off using post it tape. Then I stamped out my fireplace and the adorable little bit of fire sitting on a log. Seriously, how cute is he?! I also stamped out the super cute little cup of milk on the mantle. I used my Mini MISTI for all of this stamping to make sure I got my placement perfect each time.



Once my masking was done, I started on my coloring. My whole background and all of my stamped images are colored with Copic markers (only the wreath isn't!). I created the wood panel background and tried to give the flooring a cool texture. I stamped a few little hearts and my sentiment 'Holiday Greetings' from Lawn Fawn's 'Winter Village.'



Next, I needed something above the mantle. I got really creative for this part. I took the 'Stuck On You' set from Lawn Fawn and used my Tiny Wreath Builder from Gina K to create a wreath. I used the larger succulent, smaller succulent, and little flower to bring it all together. Then, I fussy cut it to add to my card.



For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to my hearts, a few red sequins on the wreath, and even a few Nuvo drops in Green and Gold around the wreath as well. I tied a sweet little bow in red gingham and that finished off my card!



It's been wonderful to spend the last few months with you and I hope to see you around the blog and social media really soon! 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 …
