Love you Tons - mini cards

Hey Everyone!  Its Trish again and I'm back with some 'mini' 3"x3" cards.

Every so often, I like to include little cards in my hubby's lunch box for work.  I like to think that it brings a smile to his face :)  And once my daughter is old enough to start school, I'll be doing the same thing for her.

So today, I'll be showing you a couple of cards that I created using stamp sets from Lawn Fawn.


For both cards I used the "Love you Tons" sentiment from the "Love you Tons" stamp set.  But I used the images from both that stamp set and "Year Four". (the hippo is just Adorable!)


I decided to paper piece all of the images using the Lawn Fawn paper pad "Bright Side".


I made fringe with some of the green pattern paper to create grass at the bottom of my cards and fussy cut the critters out.  But to make it easy, you can use the dies for these 2 sets to cut them out.  (you can find them here & here)



The hearts were stamped using Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Pale Tomato and the bow was cut out of pattern paper.

Hope you guys enjoyed these mini cards that are easy and quick to put together!

Supplies Used:
-Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Pale Tomato
-Lawn Fawn Year Four Stamp Set
-Lawn Fawn Tons of Love Stamp Set
-Lawn Fawn Bright Side Collection 6"x6"

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 will work the same.  It&#…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …
