๐Ÿ˜– Sorry I Was A Prick ๐ŸŒต

Hello Crafty Friends! Happy Friday! Today is bitter sweet because I’m back on the blog but it’s my final post as a Design Team Member for the term. Today’s inspiration card combines 2 of my favorite brands Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn!
I love plants ๐Ÿชด so much! But unlike my mother who has the greenest thumb on the planet, I cannot say the same for myself! That is why I LOVE Succulents! They are so easy to care for and even if neglected are difficult to kill. Lol! ๐Ÿ˜„ So, to my happy surprise, when Lawn Fawn recently came out with their Plant- a - Succulent Dies , I flipped!!! Paper succulents!!! YESSS ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ I love the idea of being able to build a collection of mini paper succulents in teeny tiny pots with the cutest facial expressions! i love Mama Elephant’s Newest stamp set It's Okay  so so much that I am using it again for this week’s card.
To create this card, I used Lawn Fawn Large Stiched Stackables Dies to cut out my base and pattern papers. I used My Favorite things Pattern paper  and a thick white card stock as my base. I then used hello Bluebirds Nesting Half circle Dies to create my pink background. I then die cut all the succulent pieces and ink blended them.
I then stamped my mama elephant images and die cut them with its corresponding dies
I cut out my sentiment letters from the Trinity Stamps Graham Cracker Alpha Dies . I arranged everything and adhered them down using score tape.
And that concludes my Card for today! I am so grateful and so happy that I was a part of this terms Design Team!!! Thank you so much Vanessa!!!! Don’t forget to check out the shop here for all things crafty and wonderful!!! Thank you again for having me! Happy Weekend and Happy Crafting!!! ❤️-Marie Marco a.k.a @marneymakesart on Instagram ☺️

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
