Have a Yeti New Year!

Hello crafty friends! Today is my last post for this DT term and I am so sad! It has been such an honor to be part of this design team and I had so much fun creating cards for you these past four months! I am so grateful for Vanessa giving me this opportunity and I appreciate all of you for your support and encouragement! *hugs!*

For my last card, I have a Happy New Year card featuring Mama Elephant's Me and My Yeti. I have always wanted to try creating a bokeh background and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for the yeti as he rings in the new year. I masked off part of the card and then used a lot of Distress Oxides (picked raspberry, salvaged patina, cracked pistachio, wilted violet, chipped sapphire, black soot). Then I stenciled on the bokeh circles with white pigment ink. I cut out the panel with Mama Elephant's Cloud Nine die.

I cut out "2022" from silver glitter cardstock and black cardstock using Concord & 9th's Tall Type Numbers. I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers. As I picked my colors, I tried to use colors from the background to color in the yeti and banner like the lights were reflecting onto them. I don't know if you can see it in my pictures but in the actual card those pinks, blues, and purples are there 😂 For the banner, I used Mama Elephant's Kissie Letters and Sentiments from a Yeti to create my custom banner. Finally, I stamped the "yeti new year!" from Mama Elephant's Sentiments From a Yeti and then assembled the card!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! And a huge THANK YOU for your support of Vanessa, BRI, and us design team members! If you would like to continue seeing what my brain comes up with 😂, please follow me on Instagram @cre8iveli! Have a happy New Year and happy crafting! 💖Jenn

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
