MFT Stamps - Little Buddies

Happy Tuesday crafty friends! Danielle here up on the BRI blog with a fun card featuring some old and some new dies and stamps from My Favorite Things! I simply adore the way this card turned out especially because it reminds me of my son Noah and our kitty Molly.

I started off using one of the images from the stamp set Little Buddies and stamped directly onto my cardstock.  I then stamped the same image, this time on some Gina K Masking Magic paper and fussy cut around the image.  This is because I wanted the little boy to appear to be sitting on the grass with the hills and trees behind him.  Once I applied my masked image,  I used the new Scene Builder and stamped my grass with flowers and the hills with trees.  Once all my images were stamped I removed the masking paper to reveal the adorable scene.  I always love seeing the whole image once everything is stamped!  It's such a fun technique and can be used with any stamps you may have!  I colored the boy and grassy hill he is sitting on first using various copic markers.  I then proceeded to color the rest of the grass and sky.  I was worried coloring such a large area with copics, but with smooth paper it really helped blending.

I then ran my colored image through my die cutting machine using the Stitched Circle Stax set with a smaller circle and then again with a larger circle on some Lawn Fawn Chocolate Bar cardstock.  I used the new MFT All Lined Up Background stamp using Distress Oxide Ground Espresso ink.
I adhered my inked background to my card base using foam adhesive and added my colored image on top also using foam adhesive.  I heat embossed my sentiment from the same stamp set Little Buddies, using Lawn Fawn white embossing powder on the new Fishtail Flag Trio die from My Favorite Things.  This might be my new favorite die because of the 3D banner and you can arrange to fit your needs! It's so awesome!! I applied using foam adhesive directly under my colored image.  I added some Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets for a little extra detail.

I hope you enjoyed this card!! It definitely holds dear to my heart! Make sure you stop by the shop to pick up these goodies and some older goodies you may have had your eye on!  But while you are there make sure to check out all the new products in the shop...she has everything!!
 See you next Tuesday! 
Have a fabulous day!! xoxoxox

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&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
