You'll Always Be My Favorite

Hi, everyone!! It's Cassie from Creatively Cass, and I'm so excited to be back as a guest for Butterfly Reflections Ink! Today I'm sharing a card I made using some adorable products. This really all came together so well because I was able to mix and match with some great companies! Let's get to the details :)

I started by die cutting a stitched square for my card base. I love using the stitched dies for card bases because it adds that little bit extra detail to the finished card. I've been loving my Distress Oxide Inks lately, and I used the Fossilized Amber color to give some color to the square panel. I spritzed it with water to add some texture to it as well. Next I die cut the largest circle from the Die-Namics Stitched Circle Scallop Frames dies from MFt. I die cut it once from my Kraft card stock and once from Neenah Solar White. For the inside of the circle I did some more ink blending and added the Faded Jeans color ink to it, spritzing it with water after.
I die cut a tree shape from the Avery Elle Tree Elle-ments die set. I used my Ground Espresso Distress Ink to add color to the bark. I glued it on to the blue, inner part of the circle and trimmed where the tree hung over the edge so that it would fit back in my border when I needed it to. Next I grabbed my I'm Owl Yours stamp set by MFT and stamped out one of the adorable little owls as well as heat embossed the sentiment onto some of the Kraft card stock.

I stamped the owl on Bristol Smooth cardstock because I was going to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color it in. I added some gel pen details and fussy cut the owl out. I added the scallop border, sentiment banner, and owl to the card with doubled up foam tape. The inner panel was glued directly onto the square panel. To add some interest in the sky I drew in stars with a white gel pen, and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in white. I attached the panel to my card base which ended up being 4 by 4 inches.
 
I hope you enjoyed this card I had to share with you! To those of you that celebrate Easter I wish you a happy Easter. And to everyone else I hope you're having a great Sunday! Thank you so much for stopping by :) I hope to be back again with another card in the future!

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…

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&#…

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 …
