Bring on the Merry!


Happy Tuesday!  Today I'm sharing this festive holiday card using stamps and dies from Hello Bluebird!  I love creating little scenes and these stamp and die sets from Hello Bluebird are so versatile.  You can easily mix and match old and new sets to create new scenes.  

To start, an A2 size piece of Bristol smooth cardstock was cut using the snowy sky scene die.  Then using all that jazz and aquatini inks, I ink blended the top panel with a blender brush.  Then using the aquatini ink, I lightly ink blended the top section of the remaining two panels to suggest shadows.  Then the top panel was glued to an A2 size of heavy weight cardstock.   The two other panels were foam mounted to the panel.  White glaze pen was added to the edges to suggest ice/snow.  


Images from North Pole littles were stamped using black ink and colored using copic markers.  White gel pen was used to add accents.  The images were then cut using the coordinating dies and adhered to the card panel using liquid glue.  Black glaze pen was added to the nose and eyes for a glossy effect.


To finish the card, the sentiment was stamped on a piece of white cardstock using Versafine ink and clear heat embossed.  Sentiment was cut using scissors and then foam mounted to the card front.  The entire panel was then mounted to an A2 card base.

Hope you enjoyed this card!  And I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!  Make sure to check out Butterfly Reflections Ink Friday for a very special Black Friday treat!

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 …
