Best In Show - MFT

Happy Tuesday everyone! Danielle here up on the BRI blog today with a fun interactive card featuring the new My Favorite Things Best In Show stamp set.  This was super fun to make and such a cute stamp set!


I started off with my main panel and using the new My Favorite Things Ray of Light Stencil and Distress Ink Oxides in Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade.  I then used the MFT Stitched Cloud Edges die and ran through my die cutting machine with glitter cardstock to create some clouds.  For my grass I used the MFT Die-Namics Grassy Fields die with some green cardstock.  I stamped one of the cute sentiments that comes with this set on the bottom of my grassy panel. I adhered my grass directly to my stenciled panel using permanent adhesive tape.  I adhered my clouds using foam adhesive for some dimension.  I then had the idea of having the dog "run" through the tunnel.  What is great about this stamp set and coordinating dies that the particular die for this image cuts out the window of the tunnel for you!

I stamped each image using MFT Extreme Black ink.  I love this ink because it leaves a crisp solid image on the first press!  I then colored each image using various copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies.  Once I decided on placement of the tunnel and where I would want the dog and pull tab, I used the MFT Spin and Slide Channels die and ran through my die cutting machine.  This is a great die because it comes with different sizes to choose from to accommodate your project.  Next, I adhered my dog image using MFT Slider Elements which fit perfectly in the channel that was created. I then created my pull tab using MFT Interactive Pull Tab die and ran through my die cutting machine using the same green cardstock as I used for my grass.  I attached my tab underneath the grass and to the other side of the slider element that was attached to my dog.  I then cut a slit in the tunnel image so he would be able to slide through the tunnel.  I adhered some foam adhesive on the the back of my main stenciled panel to give room for the pull tab to slide with ease.

Once it was sliding with ease, and I have to say the enjoyment that I had once I saw it slide from start to finish!! I must have slid it at least 100 times! Because it already had foam adhesive on the back, I attached it to the lighter orange layer.  I attached all the of my layers together and adhered to my card base using permanent tape adhesive.


I just love the way this card turned out and I hope it inspires you to try an interactive card!  This was so easy and fun to make!! Make sure you stop by the shop to pick up this set and check out all the other fantastic goodies she has in stock!! See you all next Tuesday! Have a fabulous week! 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 …
