Chubby Snowmen Slimline Card

Hi guys! Kelly here. Im so excited to show you this slimline card I made using Art Impressions Chubby Snowmen Stamp/die set. 
I started off with a 4"x9" 110lb Neenah Cardstock panel. I die cut a small circle mask and freestyle cut a ground mask & started blending Distress inks using finger daubers. I used Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry into Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and a bit of Black Soot around the edges. While I let that dry I stamped my images onto the same cardstock. 
I colored them with Copics and die cut them out. 
The set comes with 3 Snowmen and a sweet lil bunny. I only used 2 so I added the 3rd on the inside. 
I die cut a black mat from PinkFresh Studio Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles Die and mounted that onto my white slimline card base. Put it aside &
I took my inked panel and added white paint splatter, let dry.
I then removed the moon mask and the ground mask and trimmed it down a bit smaller than my stitched black mat. I foam mounted the images with foam tape and added white gel pen to the snowy ground. I added white gel accents to my images & black Glaze Gelly roll pen for the eyes. Also some sparkle pen to the background. 
After I had everything assembled I added some glossy accents to the Christmas tree star, lights, snowmen noses, candy cane and the hat band. 
I had a lot of fun creating this card & I hope you like it.

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
