Let It Snow with Honeybee Stamps

Hello Everyone!! Laurie here to share a card I made using stamps from HoneyBee Stamps.  I actually made three cards with this set and had a hard time choosing which one to post!!!

I used the Flakey Friends Stamp Set as well as Flakey Sentiments.  The Flakey Sentiments set has a ton of mix and match sentiments that go well with the Flakey Friends set.  But they also will work on their own!!  I love that about the sentiment sets from HoneyBee Stamps.

I started by stamping and colouring the bear image, scarf, toque (yes, toque. I'm Canadian, eh?) and coffee cup.  I also die cut a couple of clouds from the Sunshine Layer Dies from WPlus9.  My plan changed fairly drastically.  I only ended up using the scarf, the bear and the toque.  The set has an adorable toboggan (sled), so I decided to use that!!


I used the Stitched Mini Scallop Oval Dies from MFT and while the cardstock was still in the die, I blended some blue Distress Ink.  This left the scallops white giving it more of a frame feel.


I added snowflakes from the Flakey Friends stamp set and embossed them in white.  I fussy cut all the images out and created my itty-bitty scene!


To finish the card off, I die cut a red rectangle from the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangles set, also by MFT.  I white heat embossed the sentiment, which comes from the Flakey Friends Sentiments and added some accents using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White.  I LOVE these drops!!  I popped up my sweet bear onto the oval die, added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the "fluffy" parts of his hat and called it done!!



Hope you enjoyed today's project!!  These sets are so much fun. With so many possibilities!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have an amazing week!!

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …

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 will work the same.  It&#…
