Hoppy Birthday, Ribbit!

Hey friends, happy Friday! It's Christy here with a fun pond scene featuring Memory Box Hoppy Holidays. This set is super versatile because it does double duty as both a Christmas set, and everyday. Today I paired it with the bright and cheery Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 papers to create a birthday card.

I colored my images with Copic markers then die cut them with the matching dies. Then I layered a strip of grass cut with Lawn Fawn's Meadow Borders and Stitched Hillside Borders. I added it with foam tape over a panel cut with the Large Cross Stitched Square Stackables to create the sky at the top and the pond at the bottom. 

For my card base, I trimmed my patterned paper down to 4'' x 5 1/2'' to leave a blue border all the way around, then added a banner down the center with the end trimmed down using the Stitched Party Banners. Then I popped my focal panel over top with some more foam tape and finished things off with a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm Clear Droplets. A little Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen was the finishing touch. It's hard to make out on camera but it's so pretty in person!

I also did some fun stamping on the inside with Lawn Fawn Peacock Ink, but I'll save that for the video. ;) I hope you enjoy it! Click on the YouTube icon to watch there in HD, and if you're not already a subscriber, I'd love for you to become one. Have an amazing weekend, everybody!


  1. I have this stamp and die set and think it is so fun! The singing frog with the microphone just stole my heart! I loved seeing someone else create a card with it. Great job on your frogs and your card!

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

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
