Sending Hugs Li'l Monkey

Hi there lovely peeps. How's it going? Vera here today for your weekend inspiration. 

One of my favorite kind of card to make are interactive card, especially the kind that  make people say how does it work? Like this magic slider card. ;) I think this would be such a fun card to give to kids and adults alike.

For this card, I used a set that's close to my heart, because this set from SugarPea Designs called Caring Critters is part of sets designed specifically for my Caring Hearts Card Drive (that is going on full swing right now and you have 1 more month to send in your cards). We started with just designing sentiment set, then we got way excited and ended up with extra set. Because after all, what could be better than cute critter caring happy mail, right? And, with the sale of this set, portion of the profit is donated to Alzheimer Association.

It kind of hard to see, but the background actually stamped with MFT Etched Flower Background Stamp. If you click on the pic, you could see a large version of the pic & it will show the background better. 

Now, the fun part! As you pull the tag, taadaa..... a colored version of the cheeky li'l monkey is appearing.

And, here with the tag completely pull out of the frame. I made the scalloped frame using MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames and the tag using MFT Die-namics Pierced Traditional Tag Stax.

Fun card, right?  And, how cute is this swinging li'l fella? I just love the way his tail wrap around the happy  mail.

Well peeps, that's all from me today. I hope this weekend you will take the time to make some cards for Caring Hearts Card Drive. We sure could use some cards. Right now it's slowly trickling in. LOL, every year it's like that and I always get nervous. I want to reach as many nursing home as possible and I can only do it with your participation. So, let's get creative, make some cards & spread some joy!! Looking forward to getting your Caring Hearts package. Again, all info for Caring Hearts Card Drive can be found HERE.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

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
