Sending Joy

Hello and welcome back to the Butterfly Reflections blog! Gladys here and I'm back to share this holiday card for you. I used mostly Lawn Fawn products and added a few things here and there to make this simple and adorable scene.  
I first die cut white cardstock using the scallop frame from My Favorite Things. I then distressed it with chipped sapphire, faded jeans, shaded lilac and spun sugar. I stamped the images from two Lawn Fawn 2016 winter/fall stamp set: Snow Cool and Cheery Christmas. I colored them with copic markers and cut them using the coordinating dies. Then I heat embossed the sentiment from Merry Messages using silver embossing powder. I added foam tapes on the back of the die cuts for dimension. I wanted the critters to be standing/sitting on snow so I used my Uchida snow marker to add faux fur. If you haven't used this marker before I suggest you should. It's amazing and adds a real like texture. I have used it to add fur on critters or add texture to clothes. What I do is I pressed the marker down on a scratch piece of paper for the liquid to come out. Using the tip of the marker I dab the liquid onto my card and keep adding a little bit at a time. Then I used my heat tool until the liquid starts to puff up. Now you don't want to hold the heat tool on it too long because it will start to burn. I hope you give it a try! Lastly on my card I wanted to add some shimmer so I cut the scallop frame again from silver glitter cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by till next time! Have a fabulous weekend!

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
