MFT Die-namic Cuties

Hey friends!!! Britney here with a fun birthday card series featuring My Favorite Things products. Here’s another set very unlike my normal style of scene card, but I couldn’t resist these adorable critters. I had to have the whole set.
I like to start with making my backgrounds first and build from there. I inked up a panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide  ink. I had a bit heavier hand at the bottom and went lighter towards the top.
I used the MFT Ray of Light Stencil  and inked the panel up again with Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide  ink.  After everything thing was dry, I used the next largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frame  and cut a frame directly out of my panel.
I also cut three additional frames from plain white cardstock to stack together to give my frame some dimension. I cut all my animals (MFT Friendly Fox, Little Piggy, Cottontail CutieRacoon Cutie, and Puppy Love) from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb cardstock. 
I was channeling Nichol Sphor when making these and I used Copics to color my animal pieces instead of using different color cardstock. I like the shading I’m able to get from coloring them with Copics.
I followed this same process when cutting out the heart from the Straight from the Heart Die-namics. I cut the arrow out of chrome paper. I assembled all my animals.
I left all the arms off adding them around the heart. One thing I did different for the piggy was I cut three more noses from white cardstock and stacked those together to give the nose a snout look.
I added highlights with a white gel pen and a black glaze pen on the eyes and some of the noses. I cut a white strip of paper wide enough to hold the Happy Birthday sentiment. I used the Block Happy Birthday Die-namic  to cut my letters out of red cardstock to match my hearts.
I used the MFT Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings  sentiments for the insides of my cards. 
I hope you enjoyed this fun set of birthday cards! Have a great 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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
