Layered tree Merry Christmas Card

Hello Everyone, Its Trish from Techniques by Trish.  Its been quite some time since I've had a chance to craft but thankfully I've been able to create a few christmas cards this season.

I decided that it was time to dive into the pile of crafty supplies that have been sitting at the corner my desk that hadn't been used yet, now was a great time to break right into them.

So this is the card that I created for today

To start out, I used Lawn Fawn Lobster Ink on the MFT Diagonal Stripe background stamp for a tone on tone effect for the background of the card.  Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Circle Dies was next on the list,  I decided my rectangle ones needed a little break and I really love the circle ones.  

Onto the main event; the Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree Stamp Set.  I used a bunch of different green inks that I had in my collection to create the layered tree effect, which I must say was incredibly easy to do with this stamp set.  But I felt like it was missing a little UMPH.  Onto using another new product that hadn't been touched, White Liquid Appliqué and this stuff is so cool to use and its final effect is just awesome.

To add one last little bit to the tree, I added a few dots of Christmas Red Stickles and it was finished.  Now for the gold on this card, embossing was totally the way it was going to go.  Ranger Super Fine Gold was my choice after using the EK Success Anti Static powder tool and some Versamark ink.  The last touch was a strip of Gold Glitter paper to tie it all together and this card is complete.

And that's it for me!  I hope you all enjoyed this card and that it provided you with a little christmas card inspiration :)

Hope that you all have a fantastic holiday season, I know ours will be busy but incredible!


  1. What size circle die did you use? I only have one of the sets but I think the one I have may be a bit too large. Thanks!

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
