Layout Share with Shawna

Hi everyone, Shawna here.  Today I am sharing a fun layout using some really great products from the shop.  I really wanted to try out these new star dies from Paper Smooches so I basically started out cutting a bunch from the Maggie Holmes Styleboard 6x6 paper pad.  I love the pretty, subtle colors in this line.

The layout came together really quick and easy so I don't have all the little details to share but here is a closer look at the DIY shop burlap bow that I wrapped with the Caribbean twine. I thought this dressed up the bow nicely and gave the layout a fun touch. The fact that it was so easy was nice too!

Here is a close up of the Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste chipboard piece I used.  It is covered entirely
with gold embossing powder which changes the raw chipboard feeling entirely.

Now that you have seen a couple of details I used on my page here is a full look.  I tried to do a lot of layering like normal but not lose the photo in the mix.  I think that it still shows nicely.
Some other products I used from the shop were the xoxo stamp from the Technique Tuesday Kiss stamp set. I used the Delicata Gold ink to stamp this. The wood grain circle die cut is cut from one of the DIY journaling cards.  One other product you can find on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink site and my page are these American Crafts Thickers.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the Design Team!

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
