DT Member Intros!

Last week I announced our new Design Team and I shared some of their artwork/DT submissions on my FB page a few days ago.  Today, I want to share a little more about each of them.

Samantha Mann is a cardmaker, occasional scrapper and mom of 2 boys who lives in South Carolina. She's the DT Coordinator for Newton's Nook Designs as well as on the Sweet Stamp Shop DT and Lawnscaping FB Inspiration Team.  Talk about TALENTED!  I am so excited and honored to have her on my team and can't wait to see the projects she creates.  Here are a few to get us started...





Kristy Luccketta is fun and has a great personality (maybe it's because she's from Vegas, baby?! haha). Having just "met" Kristy through FB not that long ago, I was happy to see that she'd applied for my team and even more excited to have her join us.  Her Project Life pages are amazing. She has a pretty and girly style which works well with her daughter as the main focus in her pages.  Kristy also likes to make cards and spoil her mom's group friends with little gifts and treats.  How thoughtful is that?  Seriously!  I am in LOVE with these pages...





Trisha Theophilopoulos wowed me with her submissions.  I loved her card designs and also her use of inks and coloring.  I was also impressed by her staging. Trish is a military wife and mom of one little girl.  While I don't know her personally (yet!), I'm looking forward to getting to know her and super excited to have another talented cardmaker on my team.  Here are a few of her super cute submissions!





Tiffany Johnson is probably one of the more "well known" people on the Design Team.  She has quite the list of accomplishments and is currently on the Faber-Castell, Sizzix and Lawn Fawn DTs to name a few.  Tiffany's been a friend of mine for a while and I was lucky enough to meet her in person at CHA in January.  She recently relocated with her husband, is the mom of 3 cuties and is just a super sweetie whom I'm THRILLED to have on the team.  She's a multi-talent being a scrapbooker, cardmaker, mixed media artist, etc. and also loves to teach so maybe we'll be seeing some tutorials from her in the future.  Maybe.  ;)  Here are a few of her projects...





Brooke Petermann is committed to documenting her family through Project Life.  She is married and a mommy to two little boys, a two year old and a brand new little guy born just a couple of weeks ago. CONGRATULATIONS on your newest addition.  :)  Brooke has a clean, modern style and I also noticed she takes fabulous, eye catching photos.  Here's some of her work...





Lisa Lahiff is married to her college sweetheart, mom of 2 and a traditional scrapbooker, but also likes to make cards and other crafty projects for holidays and parties.  Lisa's on a few different challenge blog DTs and has been published a few times as well.  WHOOT!  I said it on my FB post before, but I'll say it here, too... she had me at butterflies.  <3  I really love the two layouts shown below!!!





So that is everyone!  Congrats again and WELCOME!!!  We're working on a schedule for when the girls will start posting to the blog.  Their first month of DT goodies are on their way to them and I'm so excited to see the projects they create and hope you'll follow along with us!!!  Shawna will be up first and has a layout ready to share tomorrow so stay tuned for that.  :)

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…

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&#…

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 …
