Happy Holidays Deer!

Hi everyone!

Jenny here with a fun holiday card using non-traditional colours featuring a cool stamp from the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa collection. BRI carries all of this collection which also includes some co-ordinating papers, stickers, and other embellishments to play with. 

I have a video showing the full detail on how I created this card over on my channel on YouTube:

To create the card I applied my powder tool onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and stamped the three snowflakes from the set all over in Versamark ink. I heat embossed in white embossing powder.  I then die cut a heart from masking paper using a Hero Arts Infinity Heart die and adhered it to the embossed panel.

I then ink blended using my mini blending tool three colours of Hero Arts Dye ink (Bubblegum, Ultra Pink and Soft Pink) over the top and removed the mask.  I trimmed down the panel slightly and adhered it to a 110lb white card base.   I then stamped out the reindeer and the bird in copic friendly black ink and coloured in with my copics (I used BG000, BG13, BG11, RV13, RV10).

I heat embossed the sentiment from the kit using Versarmark and sparkly embossing powder. I used WOW! Cloud 9 but a very similar powder is the Silver glitter powder (Cloud 9 has a few more colour specs in it). I fussy cut out the sentiment, and used my ScanNCut to cut out the images and then popped them up on foam tape. As a finishing touch I used Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard for some subtle sparkle.

That's it! Non-traditional holiday colours and such a super cute must have stamp set!

Have a wonderful holiday season everyone!

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
