dream on - perfect pearls + embossing paste

Happy Weekend!
Samantha here and I'm SUPER excited to share my card with you today!

Here's my card:

Do you have the aerosmith song stuck in your head now? I had it stuck in my head the entire time I was making this card! I LOVE it! 
(and if you're interested in a cover of that song, with a haunting and beautiful feel...check this out!)
Yeah, ok, let's dive in!
First of all, the feathers are from the Lawn Fawn stamp set - dreams, which I stamped onto vellum and then stuck right onto the card! 

That beautiful blue paper in the background...well that is from the amazing Echo Park Hello Again 6x6 paper pad! LOOOOOOOVE it!! 
I added some white splatters to the background, and the gold you see...well my friends, that was FUN!

I used an amazing stencil from Hero Arts and added some embossing paste. While it was still wet, I added some Perfect Pearls. I love it! It has a total (almost) mixed media look, right?

The sentiment was created with some of the most amazing Studio Calico Wood Veneers that I colored with my very first Avery Elle ink pad!! 

So what do you think? Now that you have an awesome song stuck in your head, have an amazing rest of your weekend!!
Oh, and you NEED to check out the sales on the Butterfly Reflections Ink website - 20% and 40% off, people!!



  1. Looks awesome! Love the gold polkas!

  2. LOOOOOOVE the idea of adding perfect pearls to the embossing paste! FUN! I've never heard of this song (I know... that's odd!)!! But either way-- this is a FAB card:) <3

  3. Fun use of the embossing paste! Way to rock that LF stamp set!

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …

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 will work the same.  It&#…
