Fun with Mama Elephant

Happy Saturday, everyone! Lindsay here on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog with a card using some of the "new to the shop" Mama Elephant goodies. It's been exciting news around here that Butterfly Reflections Ink now carries Mama Elephant products! When I saw the Little Agenda Frames Stamp Set and Little Agenda Frames Dies I knew I had to have them!


This stamp and die set includes frames of all shapes and sizes as well as coordinating dies to cut out either the frame outline on its own or the center portion as well. I chose to cut out the outline as well as the middle of the frames in order to fit in my Little Dog Agenda images inside the frame itself.


This picture was a little sneak peek from my Instagram Story last week. I Copic Colored all the dogs from the stamp set as I wasn't sure exactly which images I wanted for my card.

I then got to ink blending on some Bristol Smooth Paper using Blueprint SketchCracked Pistachio, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks. Of course I added some water splatters for some interest. Using  Versamark ink, I stamped all the frames onto the ink blended background and added white embossing powder and heat set that with my heat tool.


I then cut them all out using the coordinating dies to cut out the outline as well as the middle to allow for space for my cute puppies to fit into the frames.


I then worked on arranging all of my frames and the dog images into a pleasing layout onto the card front. This actually took a while and I realized that having some of the frames hang off the edge of the card really added to the interest to the card. 


I then white heat embossed the "Thank You" sentiment from the Little Agenda Frame Stamp Set onto black card stock multiples times and cut those out as small as possible in order to fit them in between all the frames. As a finishing touch I added Aquamarine Jewels and Spring Green Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.


Thanks for stopping by the blog today, hope you have a great weekend!

Aloha,
Lindsay

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 …
