DT Sketch Take - Take 2

Hey there!  Today we're sharing a few more takes on the sketch that was posted over the weekend. Here are Tiffany, Trish and e's projects!  Enjoy!!!

Hello Blogosphere! For today's card, I used Paper Smooches Positive Strokes to create a colorful ombre background to my main Lawn Fawn Float My Boat image! I even used that beautiful Gold Delicata Ink (swoon*), snuck in small strips of washi tape, and incorporated some We R Memory Keepers enamel dots! For a simple card, I made it quite complicated! Whew- Enjoy and I hope to see your creations incorporating the sketches in your projects!

Hey Everyone, it's Trish and I'm exciting to be taking part in the sketch challenge here at Butterfly Reflections, Ink.

I love mixing up different patterns and colors of paper from the same collection and when I came across the watercolored flowers sheet, I knew I had to use it!  I decided to cut out a few flowers to accent my super Bold sentiment!  And as a final touch, I added a few enamel dots!

My card for today feature My Mind's Eye Honey 6x6" paper pad, Paper Smooches Bold Buzzwords Stamp set, and My Mind's Eye enamel dots (all of which can be found in the store!)

i love using sketches for inspiration, because it pushes me to try things i might not otherwise.  but i always have to play around with it - i never color solely in the lines! for this layout i grabbed my wonderful trio of AC girls, Maggie, Lizzy and Amy.  i used papers and elements from the Styleboard, Daydreamer and Plus One lines.  (Layout by E Rainbow Bee) 


  1. LOVE these projects and takes on the sketches!! tiffany's card is amazing! i LOVE the swoooshes of color and that tiny little sailboat - genius!! trish's hello card is awesome! i LOVE how she mixed all of the patterned papers together! and the layout - swoon! i LOVE seeing layouts! this one has so much texture and dimension!! i LOVE it! and the title totally cracks me up!

  2. These projects are all great, but anything with GOLD on it tends to steal the show in my book! Love it Tiffany!!! ;)

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
