Happy Pawlidays!

Happy Saturday crafty friends! So happy to be with you today on the Butterfly Reflections Ink. Blog! I am deep into my holiday cards so I am sharing a fun one with you today featuring MFT products that can be found in the Butterfly Reflections Ink. Shop :)

My inspiration for the project was the puppy from the new MFT Happy Pawlidays set and I colored the pup like my little BFF Duffy :) I then went through my MFT stash and decided to use the accessories (carpet and pillows) from the MFT Merry Christmoose stamp set.  I stamped the accessories on Kraft card stock and colored them with my Copic Sketch markers. I then decided to opt for a Kraft background.

For the background I decided that I wanted a wallpaper effect so I used the Lawn Fawn Argyle Background stamp with some Judikins sticky embossing powder to add some gold Nuvo gilding flakes. I then cut a piece of wood pattern paper for the floor.  I placed my colored images on the background and decided I was missing some accessory elements so I stamped the ornaments and gift from the Happy Pawlidays set on Kraft, colored them and then used the accompanying dies. I fussy cut the other elements so they would be seamless on the scene but I felt that the dies for the ornaments was fine. I then embellished them with my white and stardust Gellyroller pen.

I opted for the beautiful Joy die from the newest MFT release for the sentiment (love this die). Once all of my elements were glued to the card base I really felt that the little "Duffy" needed the Lawn Fawn bubble with the bone from the Christmas Dream Stamp set lol!

I then added glossy accents to the ornaments, the dogs nose and eyes and the buttons on the middle pillow.  Thanks so much for taking the time! If any of these products interest you they are available a Butterfly Reflections Ink. If there are items out of stock simply press the notify me option. Vanessa is really quick about re-stocking!

Thanks for taking the time and have a great weekend!

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
