Summertime Thank-You Cards

 Hello again!  Happy June!!!  It's Kimberly from Kimplete Kreativity stopping in today with a few thank you cards created with the Sunny Studios stamp set 'Fresh & Fruity'!   I am a sucker for anything with fruit on it - you name it...clothes, pens, mugs, and of course - stamp sets!   So I couldn't wait to start stamping with this set!!

These cards were a snap to put together.   I stamped the fruit on the top two-thirds of my panel and colored them in with markers while watching television (Back to the Future, anyone?!?!).   I made sure to leave a little highlight on the cherries and I love how they look!

Next I added coordinating gingham paper to the bottom third of the panel.   The final step was the sentiment strip - I heat embossed the sentiment off to the right and then ran the strip through my Vagabond with the cross stitch border from the Lawn Fawn borders set to jazz it up a bit!

I am totally going to do a few more cards like this to add to my stash - they're so simple to put together, and the coloring is relaxing to do whenever you have the time.   I can't wait to use the strawberry!   And the lemon.....and the pear!   Oh my!   See what I mean?!   Take care and I'll see you next week, my friends!


  1. These are over the top CUTE!!!!! I love all fruit inspired projects and these are just stinkin' fabulous.

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

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
