Big Warm Fuzzy Hugs

Welcome back after a wonderful Holiday season!  It is time for me to give you all hugs and say it has been a blast designing for you this winter term!  Thank you all for your support and love, it means the world to me! 

I have a sweet card for you today that is a crafty hug from me!


All the products I used are from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store:
I began my card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which is just the right size for a standard or size 9A envelope.


For the background, I first die cut a stitched piece of Bistrol, inked it with abandoned coral & tattered rose and stamped the two sentiments in Versafine black from Fuzzy Hugs & Snow Friends stamp sets.
I then die cut multiples of the Big Warm Fuzzy Hugs die and inked the top one with scattered straw.
On the blue banner, I heat embossed the sentiment in white and used foam tape over the large word die.


Next, I stamped the cuties from Fuzzy Hugs and Snow Friends stamp sets in Lawn Fawn jet black ink, colored with copic markers, and used my scan n cut to cut out, though you can always use the coordinating dies listed above.  I used a white gel pen to add a few accents to the images.

To finish my card, I added some clear domes, crystals and a few white nuvo drops.

I want to give a big hug to Vanessa for giving me the opportunity to design this term with some amazing ladies (love you girls!) and I loved every single minute!  Thank you all!

Love Always
Candice

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

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 vel

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
