Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays!

Hi Everyone!  Today I'm sharing this fun holiday card using some stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn, which can all be purchased at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  Santa is flying though a snowy sky lead by Rudolph the red-nose-reindeer!   I used vellum to soften the background which allows the images in the front of the card to really "pop."  Below is a list of supplies I used to create this fun scene.
To start, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to an A2 size.  The stitched mountain and stitched cloud borders were die cut from a piece of plastic.  Then, using the "stencils" I created, I ink blended the following distress oxide colors top to bottom: dusty concord, shaded lilac, victorian velvet and milled lavender.  A piece of vellum was cut to A2 size and glued to the card base.
The stitched rectangle frame border was cut from white cardstock and glued to the vellum.  Now the background is complete! 

Images from Ho-Ho-Holidays stamp set were stamped using black ink and colored using copic markers.  Then the images were die cut and adhered to the front of the card using foam squares.  A white gel pen was added to the images for highlights and to create the snow.  Red Berry Nuvo drop added to Rudolph's nose to create extra dimension.  Then I used the Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment with black stazon ink.  The entire card panel was adhered to an A2 card base and that completes the card!

Hope you enjoyed this card!  Can't wait to share with you all again next week!  Have an amazing 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 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

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
