MFT Fluttering Hearts and Cool Cat!

Hello everyone, it is Nicky here with you again.  Today I am sharing a card that I made using MFT's new Die-Namics Fluttering Hearts Coverup.  The card started with two panels die cut in 100lb red card stock using the second largest die from Lawn Cuts Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.   I joined the two panels together having scored a fold line so that the card could flex and sit open.

 I then die cut the fluttering hearts panel out of 110lb white card stock and teased open only the ones that you see opened (I found that they opened better for being scored down the center of each one).  Over the flat section I made a panel.  On the left of the panel I die cut into it a line of X's and O's from MFT's Die-Namics Blueprints #5.  On the right hand side I stamped and watercolour painted  and die cut my favorite cat from MFT's Cool Cat.  Using an old off cut that had the stitched edge I stamped the sentiment.  The mini panel was mounted to the fluttering hearts panel with dimensional foam tape and the center's of the O's were recessed to complete the look.  Before adhering the fluttering hearts panel to the scalloped red base I tied some dotted ribbon around and knotted it.

Inside the card I measured and cut two white panels to fit the back of the front and the front of the back (still with me)?  This made the card extremely sturdy and provided plenty of blank white space to write a personal message on.

A cute card for this Valentine's Day for a cat lover!  I hope you stop by the website and check out all the new things that are in stock and I hope that what I shared with you today gets you feeling inspired to create.

I'll see you next time and in the meantime you can follow me on Instagram  #nickynoocards and Pinterest and Facebook.  Have a wonderful 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 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
