Hi there, friends! I hope everyone is keeping well!! Since most of our socializing is being done via FaceTime, Zoom, and social media these days, I thought these sweet Lawn Fawn mice taking a selfie would be a fun and happy card to send to someone who may be struggling right now.

To create my "cheese" background, I cut an A2 size rectangle from Bristol smooth cardstock. Then, I cut the cheese holes using the Outside In Stitched Circle dies. Next, I ink blended my background with Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered some clean water onto my inked background, blotted up the excess, and set aside to dry. 
I cut a second rectangle, and just inked where the openings were, making sure the edges were darker.

Next, I stamped the images, colored with Copics, and die cut from the following sets:

Next, I die cut the white frame three times, using the Say Cheese, Again Lawn Cuts. I stacked the frames on top of each other for dimension and attached to my background. I arranged the mice and cheese inside the frame and adhered with foam tape.

Next, I die cut my "CHEESE" title from yellow cardstock, using Oliver's Stitched Abc's and Oliver's Stitched 123"s. I inked the edges with Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink and attached to my card front. 
My sentiment, from the Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments set, was stamped onto black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Finally, I added some Marigold Jewels to finish off my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you next week!

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
