Have a Mice Valentine's Day!

Hey crafty friends!

It’s Julia here with with a Valentine’s Day card! For this one I used the adorable mice from Lawn Fawn’s Crazy Antics, Dandy Day and Really High Five as well as the How you Bean jar and the Hearts Add-On!

First I stamped my images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored them in using Copic Markers. The hearts are from the Special Delivery Box Add- On and the Winter Village stamp sets and the fishing pole is from Beary Happy Holidays.

I die cut two cloud borders and a few puffy clouds out of white cardstock. After that I ink blended Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves and a tiny bit of Black Soot Distress Oxide onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. I also added lots of splatters of Liquid Stardust for extra shine. Then, I added a tiny bit of Spun Sugar Oxide on the edges of the clouds.

I stamped the sentiment from the How You Bean Heart Add-On with Seedless Preserves onto the lowest cloud border. Then, I added the cloud borders, individual clouds and of course my jar of hearts to the background with liquid glue. My mice were added with foam squares and then I just added the remaining smaller hearts.

Finally, to add even more sparkle, I added lots and lots of
shimmer pen!

I just love the little guy that is fishing for hearts and of course the cutie on the right that is blowing hearts! I seriously can’t get enough of the mice! They are so versatile for any occasion and just add sooo much cuteness, right?

Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope you 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

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
