Creatures Are Stirring

 Happy Friday, Everyone! Allison here, and I am sharing a sweet holiday scene today featuring some Lawn Fawn products. I was inspired by my son, who loves to bake and cook - he will certainly get a kick out of this card. Everything can be found in the BRI online shop.

I stamped images from the "A Creature Was Stirring" and the "Baked with Love" stamp sets using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I did mask a few of the images, such as the mouse on the butter stick and the gingerbread house on the cake stand. I didn't really need to do that, but I just wanted some of the elements to not look so cluttered. I colored the images with Copic markers and added a few highlights with a white gel pen.

I cut some white card stock using the Peekaboo Backdrop die. I had originally planned on using a different patterned paper for each window, and I did try just about EVERY paper that I had. But, I was being indecisive. Does this happen to you on what should probably be the easiest part of the card? Maybe it's just me. In the end, I decided to cut strips of different colored card stock to coordinate with the Copic markers I had used. I am really loving using non-traditional colors on my holiday cards this year.
I finished up the card by white heat embossing the sentiments on black card stock. I also added a little bit of shimmer to some of the elements, like the gumdrops, spoon, and the tree cookie. I hope you enjoyed my card today - it was really fun to make!

Wishing you a crafty 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

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
