Hello crafty friends, welcome! This is Leeds here and today is my last post as a part of the Butterfly Reflections Ink Design Team. Thank you so much Vanessa for this amazing opportunity, I have had such a wonderful time as part of an incredibly talented design team. I'm beyond grateful and honored. We are almost at the end of 2020, it has been a tough year for all of us, but hopefully things will get better in 2021! I have a New Year card to share with you today featuring a lot of Mama Elephant goodies, here are the steps:

Step 1: Stamp all the images from Mama Elephant Me and My Yeti, Party Animals, Little Gnome Agenda and Snow Friends using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.

Step 2: Color each image using Copic Markers. I also added a few highlights using white gel pen.

Step 3: Cut a white card stock using Lawn Fawn Forest Border Die.

Step 4: Cut a white card stock and ink blended Distress Oxide Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac.

Step 5: Use Tailored Expression Light Up The Night Stencil and apply Distress Oxide Candied Apple, Cracked Pistachio, Squeezed Lemonade, and Salty Ocean.

Step 6: Assemble the card using double sided tape and foam tape. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Don't miss out on the Butterfly Reflections Ink store  AMAZING sale through the end of the year!! Wishing you all a wonderful day! See you next time! Crafty hugs, Leeds!

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
