Frosty Littles Box Card

Happy New Year's Eve, fellow Re-inkers!  It's Andrea taking over the blog today.  I always enjoy popping in to share with you, and I hope you're just as happy to have me!

Frosty Friends Box Card by Andrea Shell

I have "a thing" for snowmen, and Hello Bluebird's Frosty Littles are some of the cutest I've seen!  I stamped those cute snowmen with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics.  After cutting them out, I added a few details with a white gel pen.


Using Lawn Fawn's Shadow Box Card Dies, I die-cut two panels from some plaid paper in my stash.  Into one of the panels, I die-cut an opening with the Mountain Add-on Dies.  With the same dies, I die-cut the mountains from blue paper and the snowcaps from glitter cardstock.  I also cut the trees from white cardstock using those dies and colored them with Copics.


To create a background for my scene, I trimmed three panels of patterned paper using the dimensions of the back and side panels of the box.  After adhering the box card panels together at one of the tabs, I adhered the patterned paper to the inside panels and the mountains to the back panel.  I trimmed the tabs and part of the height from one of the white hills and attached the trees and hill to the front of the box.  After attaching the interior hills with double-sided tape, I affixed the last tab on the box panels.  I white heat-embossed a sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Snow Bunnies and die-cut it with MFT's Stitched Sentiment Strips.  I attached the snowmen with liquid adhesive and added the sentiment with foam tape.

I hope you have a safe and happy New Year's Eve!

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…

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 …

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&#…
