Bright and Fun "You did it!" card

Hey Everyone!  Its Trish here and for today's project, I've created a very bright and fun " You did it!" Card.   These are always great for a variety of different reasons; Graduation, Promotion, Winning a Sports Game, or perhaps getting a good grade on a special school project!  Can never have too many of these cards in your stash :)

The first thing I did was find the center of my patterned paper.  ( I'm using the Simple Stories DIY Boutique 6x6" paper pack.  Its currently out of stock in the Store, however, the store is always being restocked with items and new items are added regularly so any pattern paper will do!)




I then stamped my greeting from Avery Elle "Fill In the Blank" Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with some black glitter embossing powder.


Next, I die cut several stars using Paper Smooches Stars Die Set from the pattern paper and used it to make the 'o' in YOU.  I used a some extra stars to accent the sentiment and covered them in Glossy Accents.


Added some faux stitching and attached the pattern paper to my card base and the completed this simple card!



Hope you guys have enjoyed this card.  You can click on the supplies names listed within the post and it will take you directly to the item in the store.  As I mentioned,  the Simple Stories DIY Boutique paper pad is currently out of stock so you will not see it linked up.

Hope you guys enjoyed this card!

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 …
