Monster Hugs

Happy Friday all! Heather here with you today to share a card that I recently created using lots of goodies from the Shop! I am just in LOVE with creating slimline cards these days (forever inspired by Davina!!) and I'm so happy that some our favorite companies are coming out with great dies to make this easier! Beats part is that Vanessa has so many option in the Butterfly Reflection Shop! Here's a look at my card:
To create today's card I'm using the set by Mama Elephant called the Slim Card Basics Creative Cuts. I used the large scalloped die, card panel die, and the fun stitched holes from this set. I cut them all out of Bristol paper - and got to work inking them up using Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. Once the ink dried I pulled out my Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolors and used several of the golds to splatter onto my card panel. Here's a closer look:
Next I went to town coloring my images. I'm using Lawn Fawn's adorable monsters from their Monster Mash Stamp Set I love this stamp set SO much! Next I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out along with a bunch of birthday accessories from this and a few other stamp sets. I finished the card off by stamping a sentiment strip by Taylored Expressions and used their Simple Strips die set to cut it out. I adhered all of this cuteness to a Kraft cardbase cut/scored to fit the panel. Thanks for checking out my card today and I'm sending you BIG MONSTER HUGS! See ya next time!

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
