So Mini Hellos

The Stamp Market

Happy Weekend Friends! It is Dana here today and it is good to be back with you all. I hope you all are doing well and enjoying all the crafty things! Today, I am using The Stamp Market: So Mini Hellos Stamp and Die Set. When I first saw this stamp set I knew it was a Must Have! There are so many occasions covered with this set.


I started my card by stamping my car and the fun balloons from the So Mini Hellos Stamp Set. I colored my balloons with a few Copic Markers and used the So Mini Hellos Dies to die cut my images. I left my car white which made for a quicker card, and I honestly felt like it didn't need any color.


Next, I began working my shaker element. I die cut the Focal Point Stripes Elle-ments from Avery Elle. I added acetate behind my die cut along with some foam adhesive. I then filled my shaker with Iridescent Mini Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh before closing it up.


To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment onto a die cut strip (the negative piece from my original cut) and inlaid it back into the shaker element.


I know it is early to start thinking about Christmas cards...but I fell in love with the tree tied to the top of the car!! How cute it this? This time I didn't do any coloring, just a few quick stamps and my card was finished.


Thanks for joining me today! I hope to be back soon to share another project with you all!
Enjoy,
Dana

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 …
