Vacuum Love

Hey there, friends! Its Rebekah With you for todays post!

So, I am a stay-at-home mom to five, doggie momma to three and wife to one! Which essentially means I am hardly ever home, can't sit for more then five minutes at a time and I do a lot of cleaning! When I saw the That Sucks Stamp set by Sunny Studio it quickly moved to the top of my want list!

There are days I could come up with 100 reasons to use this set how I imagine it was intended but I wanted to stretch it's use and make a Valentine's Day card.



I started by stamping a soft texture to my card panel using the MFT Scattered Surface Background Stamp and light gray ink and then die cut using the Rounded Rectangle In-side Out Dies also from MFT. 

I used the Stitched Cloud Edges to create a mask and used the Clarity Stencil Brushes to apply the gray ink to the inside of the die cut panel and hand drew lines to represent baseboard trim. I used the Woodgrain Background Stamp and light brown ink to create the look of hardwood flooring and the Oval Shadows Die for the rug.




For the vacuums, I needed them to face each other so I used the mirror stamping technique using the Mirror Image Stamp also by MFT. I colored them with Copic markers, added the faces and die cut them.  For the image that was mirror stamped, I held the image up to a light and taped my die to the back of the paper and ran it threw my die cutter. It worked pretty well! I added foam to give them dimention. I also added foam to the rug and the outside of the card panel.

For the sentiment I used the Emmitt Alphabet Dies and the That Sucks Dies. I also added a small heart from the dies set!



I attached my card panel to a card base and there you have it!  Vaccume cleaners in LOVE!!

  2. They also have infrared sensors built-in so that the robot vacuum won't accidentally take a tumble down those steep stairs. robot vacuum cleaner

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

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 vel

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
