Avery Elle Cool Beans

Hi everyone!  Amanda here today with a winter coffee card to show you!  I started by cutting the plaid patterned paper in A2 size from the Jen Hadfield Warm & Cozy 6x6 paper pad. (check out all the CUTE patterns in this paper pad!). I then used the new Fa La La stencil by Neat & Tangled and used Ground Espresso distress ink over Kraft cardstock and layered that over red cardstock onto my base.

I die cut and Copic colored the coffee cups from Avery Elle Cool Beans with coordinating dies. I die cut a deer from MFT Dienamics Delightful Deer in bright gold cardstock. I tucked the deer behind some natural twine I tied around the red layer.

I embossed some of the kraft cardstock using Sunny Studio Cable Knit EF and then die cut the wrap that goes around the cup. I love how it gives the wrap dimension! Lastly I stamped, diecut and colored the holly from MFT Tweet Holidays and added to my cups for decoration and a pop of color! The little sentiment "Cool Beans" fit on there perfectly I thought!

I'm entering this card in the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, which Butterfly Reflections Ink. is sponsoring!  I hope you'll be inspired to create a coffee card of your own to link up!


  1. I LOVE the texture you created, all the patterns, and design. Just a beautiful card. Happy Holidays!

  2. Awesome card! Great colors and textures, and I love the layering! So pretty!

  3. So very awesome, all the details are AMAZING.

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
