Not so Holiday Penguins....

Hello Crafty Friends Waleska here from craftinglove glad to be sharing with you another post for Butterfly Reflections Ink blog.  Who says we can´t use holiday stamps for other occasions right?  I created my card for today with that in mind... if we look carefully in our stash of holiday stamps we might find some that can be used in different ways.... or maybe you are like me, you love a stamp set so much you just have to use it all year round!!!


Having the Love Season in mind I used the MFT Holiday Penguins to create a Valentines Day Card.  I started by stamping this adorable penguins with Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored them with Zig Real Brush Pens in colors 010 Black, 051 Lemon Yellow, 070 Orange and 026 Light Pink.   To make them not so Holiday I chop off the Christmas presents they have on their head... and just like that I made them regular penguins for any occasion... 

I die cut the Amazing Skating Pond Scene Die from Hello Bluebird stamps to create the scene for my penguins.  I love this scene dies because they are just like a little puzzle, I added color to some of the pieces with Oxide Inks.  For the pond I used  Tumbled Glass, for the trees Weather Wood and for the background a mix of Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick (my favorite combo for the season).  

I glue all the pieces to a white card base and added the frame with Kraft Cardstock.   For the sentiment I used on the Skating Together Stamp set from Hello Bluebird too.  The final touches were some little star sequins I adhere with Glossy Accents a Jewel Picker and a lot of patience...

And there is.... an idea on how to use Holiday Stamps and Dies for different occasions... What do you say?  Would you try it?   Thank you so much for stopping by and spending some time with me today!!! Don´t forget to stop by the SHOP to find your favorite brands and shop shop shop!!!

Have an Amazing Day!!!

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
