stitching on paper!

Hello there!

Samantha here again, and today I'm super excited about the card I get to share with you all!

I used lots of Lawn Fawn for my card - and guess what? All of the Lawn Fawn goodies can be found right in the store!

I used the insta-frame from the Awesome stamp set, and then layered a bunch of them so they looked like a bunch of gathered pictures! The US map (one of my FAVORITE images ever!) was placed inside one of the frames and that image is from Wish You Were Here! I added wink of stella and glossy accents to two of the states (the sender and recipient!) to add a little subtle touch of love!

To create the sentiment I hand stitched on my card! Now, I use my sewing machine all of the time, but I haven't ever tried the hand stitched technique that is so popular now! And I LOOOOVE it!! It was so fun and easy to do!

I used the negative from this Scripty Hello die and lightly traced the word with a pencil onto my card base. Then I poked holes about 1/4 inches along the pencil line! After I erased the pencil line I went in and backstitched up the sentiment! 

SOOO easy and super fun! I think I have a new favorite technique!!
Have you ever thought about trying to sew on your cards? It's super easy with these kits from Amy Tangerine!

And what do you think of those papers? All of the paper piecing is from the Echo Park Hello Again paper collection. LOOOOOVE it!

Leave me a link to your card with stitching on it! I would love to check it out and leave some love!


  1. Awesome card, Samantha! love the stitched sentiment and the layered frames!

  2. Looks awesome! fab tip on using the die as your template!

  3. Awesome use of all those elements!, Samantha! Lovely card!!

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
