Snowman Fun

Hello! This is Tiffany and today I have two cards to share with you. I used several items from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink online store to create these cards. I recently purchased the Mama Elephant Circular Grid Die and I wanted to show how versatile it could be. When using this die, you can use it as is (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) with stitched borders or cut it down like I did for both cards. For the larger A2 sized card I trimmed off the stitched border and then used an edge distressing tool on the edges, I wanted to have a patterned paper border on my card. For the square card I trimmed the die cut piece down to 3 7/8 x 3 7/8, the square card measures at 4 1/8 x 4 1/8. For both cards I ink blended the backgrounds using two shades of blue, I then splattered white and silver paint to create a snowy effect. I stamped images from Mama Elephant's Little Snowman Agenda in Memento Gray Flannel ink, I wanted the snowmen to have a dark outline but not as dark as a black outline. Once the images were cut out, I colored them with Copic markers and added Star Dust Stickles to the snowmen. On the A2 sized card I used sentiments from Mama Elephant's Holiday Messages and patterned paper from American Craft's Cozy & Bright 6 x 6 paper pad. On the square card I used sentiments from Mama Elephant's Mini Merry Messages and patterned paper from Echo Park's Christmas Gingham 6 x 6 paper pad. Sentiments on both cards were heat embossed using Lawn Fawn's White Embossing Powder. I used Tombo liquid glue and foam squares to assemble both cards. I hope you've enjoyed these cards, I'll see you again next week!

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

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 vel
