You have a PIZZA my heart!

Hi Everyone! This is my last Valentine's Day card to share here on the blog. Valentine's Day holds a special place in my heart, because my youngest daughter was born on V-Day and she had to spend 6 weeks in the NICU fighting bacterial meningitis before we brought her home. She'll be 6 years old this week and it's a total miracle that she's alive, that she isn't severely handicapped, and that she is happy and healthy. The doctors expected her to die and they also prepared us for severe handicaps if she lived, but the only issue she has is a slight short-term memory problem, which thankfully hasn't affected her ability to learn like a little genius. Oh, how I love her! I was never a big Valentine's Day fan before, but since she was born, I LOVE IT! 

This card represents my idea of a perfect V-Day with my sweetie. Chilling out at home with pizza and a movie is all I'm interested in on a holiday when everyone goes out to dinner :) You know what I mean?

I stamped my images from Lawn Fawn Screen Time  and Lawn Fawn Pizza My Heart onto my white paper. I colored all the images using my CopicSketch markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I cut my background out using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Dies, then cut a Heart out of Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper pad. I adhered my rainbow heart to my card base, then added my sentiment to the bottom left corner. I used my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad for the top and bottom words and my Picked Raspberry for the word "pizza" to make it pop. 

I used my 3D Foam Squares to add dimension to most of my little images and finished the card by adding a few little heart stamps around. 

I love these stamp sets so much! The pizza set was one of the very first I ever purchased and I get giddy about it every time I pull it out. Adding toppings to the pizzas is just so much fun! 

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow!

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
