Christmas Treats

Hello and happy Monday! I hope you all are having a great start to your week. Today I'm sharing some fun Christmas cards inspired by this month's BRI November Mood Board. The colors for this month are typically thought of as Autumn colors, but I thought they were perfect for these Christmas baking scenes.

To start I used an assortment of images from Lawn Fawn stamp sets Oh Snap, Out of this World, Baked with Love, Booyah, and Christmas Dreams. My images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I altered the flowers I stamped from Booyah with a black micronpen and added leaves between the petals.

To create the background, I used two different sizes from the Small Dotted Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out the pattern paper and Kraft paper. For the sentiment, I stamped Merry Christmas with Distress Ink Fossilized Amber before heat embossing it in Lawn Fawndamentals Gold embossing powder.

I assembled the kraft and pattern paper with a tape runner and attached them to the card face. Then, I adhered the images with my Lawn Fawn glue tube. With a glitter pen, I turned everything I colored yellow into gold. Lastly, I added accents to the other images using a white gel pen.

I hope you are inspired to use this month's mood board too! Don't forget to use the tag #BRIMoodBoard on Instagram so we can see what you create! You can find products I used to make these cards at the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop! I'll be back next week with something new! Until then, you can find me @CaveWomanCreations. Have a great 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 th

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 w

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 vel
