Hello Bluebird-LOVE

Hi my inky-fingered friends! I've been super excited for the chance to use the new BRI Mood Board colors for February, they're so pretty! We moved last week and my life has been total chaos, but I managed to squeeze in a minute of crafty time to create this sweet little Valentine's Day scene. I've had these squirrels in mind for a card like this for quite a while. The little one on the right just looks so sweet and bashful, I love her expression! I love the little additions from a Christmas set from Hello Bluebird Stamps. The gifts and little garland were too cute to pass up. 

Here are all the products I used from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Shop:

I stamped my images from Fall Banner Buddies and O Christmas Tree  onto my white paper. I colored all the images using my CopicSketch markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I cut my background out using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Dies, then cut a Heart out of the center of it. I saved the center heart, and used the background as a simple inked backdrop for my scene. I inked the backdrop with my Distress Oxide Inks in Candied appleAbandoned Coral, and Spun Sugar
I used my Charlie Alpha Dies to cut the word "LOVE" from some sparkly red paper I had on hand and glued it to the heart, along with the little garland. 

To finish, I mounted my die cut heart images to my background using 3D Foam Squares. I glued my stamped images and my sequins using Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive

I love it when I can use totally different stamp sets to create something fun and new! I hope you all enjoyed my card and I hope you have a fabulous week!

Lots of love!

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

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
