Sending You Lots of Love

Hello, Everybody!

It's Kelly Martin here, and thanks so much for stopping by the blog today to check out my card!

Several days ago, I sat down and had a fun little stamping party, using some of the products from Pinkfresh Studio's most recent release. One of those products is the Modern Layered Floral Stamp Set and coordinating die set.

I stamped out 4 different sets of this floral (using Sweet Sixteen, Flirty Fuchsia, Seafoam, and Spruce inks from Catherine Pooler) and then used the coordinating die to cut out the bouquets and then glued the bouquets down to a card. I had LOTS of the imag hanging off the edge, so I just used my scissors to cut off the excess. You can see the finished card here.

So the big question was - What am I supposed to do with all these extra bits and pieces that I trimmed off this card? Well here's the answer:

I arranged all the cut off pieces from that first card around the outer edge of a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base and then just followed the same process of gluing down those images using liquid adhesive.

I filled in any white spaces with smaller images and then finished off the card by stamping a sentiment from the Simply Sentiments - Hello Stamp Set in the middle of the card with black ink.

When I can do minimal stamping and still get multiple cards, I am a happy camper! I love that this set is large enough to carry off being a focal image on a card, but small enough to be used as a border image as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and spending a few minutes with me!

Happy Crafting!

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
