Good morning, all! It's Cassie here, and I've got a cute and silly card to share with you today! This card was totally inspired by the new #Hashtag stamp set that was a collaboration with Bossy Joscie. This set is so sassy and fun! And it works for so many different cards.

 This polar bear can't wait for Christmas morning and I can't either! I started this card by stamping the polar bear from the Polar Bear Pals stamp set on some Bristol Smooth cardstock. I made a mask for the bear and grabbed the two presents from the Beast Friends stamp set and stamped them in a pile behind him. I colored all of the images in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I cut the image out and set it aside for later. Next I took another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and die cut the large tag from the A Tag for All Elle-ments die set and used the smooshing technique to add color. I used a couple of the blues from my Zigs to get a fun mix.
I let that dry and stamped the sentiment 'seriously with VersaMark ink and heat embossed dark gray embossing powder. I used my mini ink blending tools to add some Black Soot to a scrap piece of watercolor cardstock and stamped the hashtags that I wanted on top of the Black Soot. I added the bear and presents to the card with foam tape. I also cut apart the hashtags and added them with foam tape as well.
To finish the card I added some white dots with my white gel pen as well as some enamel dots with my Nuvo Crystal Drops. I also used my white gelly pen to added some patterns to the presents and detail on the scarf. And that's it for my card! I hope you enjoyed today's card, and I will see you again soon with another one!

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
