Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays!

Hey friends! Britney here with a card featuring several Lawn Fawn products (Ho-Ho-HolidaysMini String of Lights, and Rooftop Border). I was really imagining Santa being excited and diving into a chimney, and then gifts flying everywhere after his dive. Let’s get started. If you’ve ever read any of my previous blog posts before, you know I like to start with my background first. I inked up my panel with Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxides. I think splattered it with white gouache and Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust.  
While I let my background dry, I started die cutting my roof. I die cut one piece out of white cardstock, which I used Lawn Fawn Chili Pepper ink and stencil to make the bricks. Then I cut a grey roof piece and two black roof pieces. I stacked and glued all of those together. Then I inked up my chimney with the same color and used some white gouache to make the “grout”. 
Next, I used a Snow Pen to get the snow on my rooftop and chimney. I like how it gives it a different type of look for snow. Now that all of that was done, I started on my lights. I inked up some white cardstock with Lawn Fawn Noble Fir ink to give the lights that Christmas Tree light look. After my lights were assembled and my roof was attached to my card base, I put Glossy Accents on all of my bulbs to give them a nice shiny look. I set that aside to dry. 
I stamped my images with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black Ink and colored my images with Copic Markers. I finished off my images by adding some highlights with a white gel pen. I used a black glaze pen on the reindeer’s eye. I popped up the images, the chimney, and sentiment strip using some foam tape and glued all the other images directly to the card base. I used Lawn Fawn Chili Pepper ink to ink up a scrap piece of cardstock to use as a sentiment strip. I used Versamark Ink and white embossing powder for my sentiment and my Ho, Ho, Ho! I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it. Have a wonderful day!

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 …
