Happy Holidays Card & DIY Bauble

Hi everyone, welcome! Leeds here and today I'm sharing a set of holiday card and DIY Bauble. For the card, I  stamped all the images from Mama Elephant Little Panda Agenda, Lawn Fawn Beary Happy Holidays, and Lawn Fawn Winter Village  using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad. I colored each image using Copic Markers, I also added a few highlights using white gel pen.

I cut a white card stock using Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop Die and ink blended it with Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, and Dried Marigold. Then, cut a white card stock using  Lawn Fawn Hillside Border Die and use Ranger glitter on the snow. I heat-embossed the sentiment using red embossing powder. Finally, assemble the card using double sided tape and foam tape, the holiday card was done.

Now, let's moving on to the DIY Bauble. For this bauble, I used images from Lawn Fawn Beary Happy Holidays. I took a white card stock and ran it through my die cut machine with a scallop die slightly larger than the bauble. I ink blended it with Distress Oxide Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet, splatter it with white acrylic paint and glued the images.  I then used a liquid glue to stick the bauble to the card base, tied gold ribbon and green twine and Voila! DIY holiday bauble was done! 

I hope you enjoyed and feel inspired by the card and bauble I've shared with you today. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by and read my post. Wishing you 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

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

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
