Hi There, Foxy!

Hello friends and thank you for visiting the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today! I am Janette and today I bring you something a little foxy. Uchi's Design Forest Critters stamp set contains the cutest fox I have ever seen.  I knew when I first saw it at CHA in January that I had to have it!


Paper Dimensions:
  • 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" Copic friendly white cardstock for primary panel.
  • 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock for woodgrain background.
  • 4 1/4" x 11" white heavyweight cardstock for base (scored & top folded).

  1. Place stamps in Misti tool. Ink up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamp 2-3 times for a dark, crisp impression.
  2. Copic color images. I used YR04, YR07, E19, W00, W01 & R22 for the fox. E55, E57, E59, YG 03, YG67 & YG99 for the stump and grass. 
  3. Die cut or fussy cut images.
  4. Airbrush or ink blend Copic marker B04 on primary panel.
  5. Place diamond stencil over primary panel and blot with paper towel lightly saturated in Copic Various Ink Colorless Blender. Shift stencil as needed.
  6. Use splatter brush with Copic Colorless Blender for more splatter (optional).
  7. Audition critter and stump. Place "Hi" die and secure in place with washi, Post-It or other light tack tape. Remove critter and stump. Die cut "Hi" from primary panel 1x and from scrap white 4x.
  8. Thinly apply embossing paste over woodgrain stencil on white background panel. Allow to dry and apply Distress Crayon. Rub with finger to smudge and smear for good coverage. It doesn't not need to be perfect. In fact there is more charm when it isn't! ;)


  1. Apply foam tape or fun foam to back of primary panel. Cover the "Hi" area so that adhesive is exposed on through the front. Adhere to woodgrain panel. Adhere both to card base.
  2. Liquid glue all "Hi" die cuts in a stack with blue version exposed on top. Adhere into "Hi" opening.
  3. Adhere stump flat.
  4. Adhere Mr. Sly Fox with flat tape adhesive near his feet and base of tail. Apply foam tape or dots at top of head and tail.

Thank you for following along, and thank you for spending you time with myself and the BRI team today. We appreciate your patronage! Be sure to stop by and check out all the new goodies Vanessa has in the shop. She has product rolling in everyday!

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
