Bunnies, Bunnies, Everywhere!


Hi there crafty friends.  Heather here sharing a few fun cards that I created with goodies from the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop!

If you're like me, you've always got a full cart just waiting in the wings of the shop heehee!!  Today we're not talking about "NEW" items though!  I'm pulling out a few "oldies but goodies" from my stash today and making them the stars of the show!  Here is a look at my cards:

I was super inspired to create these cards after seeing one of my friend Megan's most recent cards over on Instagram.  If you don't yet follow her, you totally should!  She's great! 

Now, if you follow me on Insta, you know that I'm currently OBSESSED with Mama Elephant's Little Signage Agenda Stamp Set!!  I've wanted it for so long!!  It was released quite a while ago as a freebie if you purchased a certain amount from their shop - which, alas, means that I did not get it :(.  

I prefer to buy from shops like Butterfly Reflections Ink because I feel like it's really important to support shops like Vanessa's (WOOT-WOOT GIRL BOSS!!!)!  

Anyway, I thought I'd give the adorable Little Signage critters a break and pull out the Mama Elephant Party Animal Stamp Set and their coordinating dies as well as the Little Bunny Agenda Stamp Set and their coordinating dies.  SO. CUTE. I love that little bunny in the shipping box and decided to also pull out  Lawn Fawn's Special Delivery Box Add-On Stamp Set and the coordinating dies along with their Special Delivery Stamp Set and the coordinating die set to add a few fun additions such a the box, heart, and letters.  

I stamped all of these images using the Ink on 3 Hybrid Detail Black Ink and colored them using Copic Markers, then I die cut all of the images, and added a bit of white details with a white Gelly Roll Pen.  

Next I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn's Paper Bag card stock to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and dug out a few stencils by Lawn Fawn to create a few fun backgrounds with Distress Oxide Inks (here I've used Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen).  I love the creamy effect it has on the kraft colored paper!  Finally I used the Mama Elephant Film Strip Die that can be found in the Slim Film City Creative Cuts die set to set the scene for my critters.  I finished the card off with a bit of golden sparkle using the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolor palate! 

I hope you enjoyed my cards and that they inspire you to mix your stamp sets and pull out the "oldies".  have a great 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
