The Stamp Market--15 Minute Card

Hi guys, Amy Copeland here with a very quick, clean-and-simple card featuring some awesome products by The Stamp Market.  Be sure to visit my Instagram (@amypeach1978) for other inspiring card ideas.  This card literally took me 15 minutes from beginning to end (well, technically it took 20, but 5 minutes of that time were spent separating my two bar magnets for my MISTI because they accidentally stuck together when I was trying to stamp the sentiment on my card base--man, those suckers are powerful!)  :)

I started by using a Stitched Rectangle die to cut a piece of The Stamp Market's Color Crush Solids patterned paper.  Then I actually trimmed the striped patterned piece off of the front "cardboard" piece of packaging from the Color Crush Patterns paper pack.  I ran that piece through with the Stitched Rectangle die with my die cutter to give it the fun stitching detail on the top and bottom edges.

I used the Botanical Beauty die to cut the large leafy element out of another piece from the Color Crush Solids paper pack.




I stamped my sentiments (both from the AWESOME Have a Nice Day! stamp set) with Sage Leaf ink by Lawn Fawn, the long one directly onto the blue card panel, and the smaller one right-aligned onto a white cardstock circle that was die cut with a Stitched Circle die.

I adhered the patterned paper and leafy elements with liquid glue  (I like using liquid glue for the little extra wiggle room it gives you) and popped the circle sentiment up with foam tape.  I played around with gems and sequins for a little extra embellishment, but decided I liked it better really clean-and-simple and letting the design elements take center-stage.

I mounted my card front onto an A2-sized (4 1/4 x 5 1/2") white, top-folding card base using liquid glue.  I hope you enjoyed this card today and that it inspires you to create some clean-and-simple designs of your own.

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 …
