A Prehistoric Birthday 🦕🎂🦖

Sup Guys! It’s Marie bringing you a fun and super simple birthday box card inspired by colors from The Butterfly Reflections Ink. Mood Board for March. This dimensional card features products from 2 of my fave companies, My Favorite Things and Mama Elephant!
The adorable stampset I am using for my card is is the Little Dino Agenda Stamp Set from Mama Elephant. It also comes with corresponding creative cuts  which can both be found in the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop. The dimensional box card dies I am using is the one from My Favorite things OutSide the Box Level Up Dies. This box card is so easy to put together and the results are always so fun even before adding embellishments! I love how each tab is higher than the next making your entire scene visible.
My “Birthday Wishes” Sentiment is from the Wishes Enclosed stamp set from the Newest Mama Elephant Release! I love how bold, fun, and essential these sentiments are for cards all year round but I think the best feature is that these big sentiments can be cut out using their  corresponding creative cuts Dies!!! The ability to cut out the sentiments opens up a whole new level of creativity ☺️🙌☺️ like for this card, I used acitate to hold up the sentiment so it looks like it’s floating!
The fun trees and foliage are from Mft Stamps Stamp Set Called “Sweet Safari”. The Grass inserts are the outside the box grass Die-Namics 
That’s all for me today folks! I hope my card was inspiring and that you go out and make your own fun box card so you can make your next recipient smile! 😊 Until next week, have an amazing weekend and happy crafting!!! -Marie @marneymakesart

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
