Christmas Wrapping

I hope you are all having a fabulous Friday and are recovering nicely from your sugar hangover from last weeks candy fest called Halloween!

I am shifting the gears quickly and getting you in the mood for Christmas with this fun loving bunch of critters wrapping and giving presents!


I used some popular brands found in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store:
I began my card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which is perfect for the size 9A envelopes.


I started with the background by creating my stencil from the hill dies and lightly inked with tattered rose.

I then stamped all the penguins, presents & wrappings, deer, birds, & mouse, colored with copic markers and then die cut out using the coordinated dies listed above.


To finish the card, I stamped the two sentiments in versafine black ink.  For the third sentiment, I heat embossed on a stitched banner in white and pop dotted onto the card.  For a little shine, I added a few sequins.
I only used four shades of copics for the coloring: E00, E000, E0000, E53, E51, E50, R01, R00, R000, R0000, W1, W0, W00 & 0

I hope I have inspired you to start on your Christmas card making and if you need some more inspiration shopping through all the selection at Butterfly Reflections, Ink store should help!  One more push, she has sooo many products on sale for 40-60% off!

Thank you for visiting and will see you again next Friday!

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 …
