You're the Best!

Hello Butterfly Friends! I hope you're having a wonderful day!

Have you ever had a stamp set that you knew you HAD to have, but every time you were ready to buy it, you were out of "crafty money". That's been this adorable stamp set from Mama Elephant for me. It's been on my wish list for so long! I love it so much that Butterfly Reflections Ink stocks all my favorite brands! One stop shopping is THE BEST! 

Here's a list of the products I used. You can find them all in the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop!
I started by stamping my images from the Book Worm stamp set using my Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the images using my Copic Sketch markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies. Aren't these little critters reading the CUTEST?? 

Next, I die cut a banner using the Fancy Wavy Banners dies and stamped my sentiment with the Wavy Sayings stamp set

I wanted a very simple background to put my scene on, so I die cut a simple white background  and used my Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink to softly ink a simple line and mounted it onto some patterned paper. The dimensions for my card are 3 1/2" x 8 1/2". I love slimline cards because they fit perfectly in a standard sized envelope. 

Finally, I mounted my stamped and die cut images to my background using 3D Foam Squares and Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive.

Are you a book worm? I love to read, but rarely get the chance to sit and read a real book, so I listen to tons of audiobooks. Fun fact about me, I listen to all the Harry Potter books over and over, then I throw in a new book every now and then to mix things up. I've definitely listened to/read each of the HP books at least 30 times each. I hope you enjoyed my book worm card and I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

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

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 vel
