Who Doesn't Love Happy Mail?!?!?!

Hi, there! It's Rebekah here today sharing a card I made using Lawn Fawns Happy Mail Lawn Cuts.

It may sound a bit strange but I have always had a thing for mailboxes.. I have an antique French mailbox I plan to hang inside my house as soon as I find the perfect spot for it! Maybe its the anticipation of happy mail that makes me love them, I don't know. But that is why I when I saw this mailbox die I knew I had to have it!



This die is super cool, too! Its easy to put together...actually, all that is required is a few folds. It is perfect for filling with lots and lots of happy 'mail'!

I used the Lawn Fawn Happy Mail Lawn Cuts and stuffed it full of letters stamped and die cut from the Love Letters stamp set and Love Letters Dies.  I also couldn't resist having that little bird popping out of the mailbox! I also added a few letters at the bottom of the scene!



I created the scene inside the Wonky Windows die from My Favorite Things. I also used the Rolling Hills die and the Grassy Hills.

I thought this card needed some pattern so on the gray cardstock base I stamped the Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp also from My Favorite Things.



These dies and stamp set are perfect for Valentine's Day. Included in the stamp set is a Valentine's Day sentiment, but also included are a number of sentiments which can be used year round. I will be using these products again soon!!!

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&#…
