Warm Fuzzy Hugs

Good morning, crafty friends! Today, I have a set of cards using Mama Elephant products; I absolutely adore their sweet images!

To begin, I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die to cut two backgrounds from Bristol smooth cardstock for my card. I inked the first background with Distress Oxide Ink pads in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry. Then, I splattered some water and thinned out Picked Raspberry DO with a paintbrush, and set aside to dry. I did the same for my blue background, using Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink.

Next, I stamped my images using the Fuzzy Hugs Stamp Set with the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad. I colored the stamped images with Copic markers, and added white highlights with this gel pen. I cut out my colored images with the Fuzzy Hugs Creative Cuts, and set aside for later.

To create the fun, bold title, I used the Big Warm Fuzzy Hugs Creative Cuts. I cut the title three times for each card(two times each in Raspberry and Mermaid cardstock) and once in white cardstock. I glued the layers together, with the white being slightly offset, so the colored cardstock peeks out the side. 

I attached my backgrounds to my A2 card bases using my fav tape runner. Next, using a glue pen, I adhered the title to my card. Then, I added my colored images to the cards using foam squares for dimension.

To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiments from the Sending Hugs Stamp Set onto dark gray cardstock and embossed with White Embossing Powder.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful 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

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
