Big News - Mama Elephant

Hello my crafty friends!! Hope everyone had a nice Easter and Passover! The easter bunny was very good to us down here in sunny Florida! Danielle here up on the fabulous BRI blog today with fun card for a dear friend featuring the new Mama Elephant Big News Stamp and Die set.


I started off ink blending a panel using Distress Ink Oxides in worn lipstick and seedless preserves.  I then used the Mama Elephant Grid Windows die with a piece of Lawn Fawn Sparkle Pixie Dust cardstock.  This is by far my favorite white sparkle cardstock!! It's hard to see in the picture but I can guarantee it's absolutely the sparkliest in person!  I adhered my die cut on top of my ink blended panel using Tombow Mono Glue. I love this glue applicator because it gives you a steady straight thin line so you have more control in tight spaces.  




I stamped all my images from the new Mama Elephant Big News stamp set using black licorice ink.  This set is super adorable and comes with so many tiny sentiments perfect for any occasion! Once all my images were stamped I colored using various comic markers.  I ran my colored images through my machine with using the coordinated dies. I attached all except the center elephant to the front of my card using Tombow Mono glue, for my center elephant I used foam adhesive. I then stamped the other tiny sentiments in this set in the squares of my grid.  


I hope you enjoyed this card and I hope the person who I'm sending it to makes them smile!! Make sure you stop by the shop to pick up this set!! And make sure you check out the awesome sale she has going on with over 3,000 items marked down to 40%!!!!
Wishing you a fabulous week!!!

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 …
