Happy Galentine's Day - MFT

Good Morning crafty friends! Danielle here up on the BRI blog with a fun Valentine's Day card for you best crafty girl friend featuring the My Favorite Things recent February release!



I was so excited to see this month's mood board for February because I just adored the soft colors.  I wanted to create a Valentine's Day card for a friend in non traditional Valentine's Day colors.  I started off ink blending my panel using Distress Oxides in Scattered Straw, Milled Lavender, and Weathered Wood. Once I was done ink blending, I used the My Favorite Things Lots of Hearts Stencil and applied Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste over the stencil onto my ink blended panel.  To say that I am obsessed with this glimmer paste is an understatement! It creates such beautiful shimmer over any color it is applied to! It is a must have!!  Once dried, I used the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Heart Trio Shaker Window die and ran it through my die cutting machine twice to make 2 rows.  Make sure the glimmer paste is completely dry before you do this!  I then laid my die cute panel over a piece of white cardstock and lightly traced the hearts.  This was so I was able to perfectly stamp my My Favorite Things Heart Art Stamps in the correct position.  I alternated each stamped image using Altenew premium dye inks in Blush, Limestone, and Butter Cream.



I then added the My Favorite Things Heart Trio Shaker Pouches using double sided tape.  I added some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Buttercream, Ivory and Pink Blush.   Once all my shaker elements were added, I adhered directly to my stamped heart card stock using double side tape. I adhered my complete shaker panel to my card base using foam adhesive.  For my sentiment, I used My Favorite Things Sassy Pants Love Stamp set.  This is such a fun sentiment stamp set for all your friends!  I heat embossed using Versamark embossing pad and LawnFawn White embossing powder. I adhered in the center of my panel using foam adhesive.


I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it! Hope you have a wonderful day and make sure you stop by the shop to pick up these fabulous products!! See you next Tuesday! xoxox

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 …
