paper smooches on vellum and a color happy scrapbook layout

Good morning!
It's Samantha here, and sadly (*sniff sniff*), this is my last post as a Butterfly Reflections Ink-er.

I just can't believe 3 months has flown by SO fast! It's crazy, working with Vanessa and the entire Butterfly Reflections Ink team has been a dream!

Anyway, without further ado, here it is, my last project - and it's a scrapbook page to boot!

Ok, as you can see in the photo above, LOTS of goodies from the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!

I used two different Paper Smooches stamps sets - but all of the images were stamped onto vellum! LOOOOOOOOVE me some vellum! :)
I used the city scapes and clouds from Metropolis and the rainbow from Spectrum.

I also stithced a lot on this layout - a favorite thing to do of mine! I stitched over the vellum city scapes, and also the clear stickers from the Simple Stories DIY line - LOVE those stickers! they just JAZZ up the layout, I think! :)

Finally, I added the title with some lower alpha thickers, and a bunch of splattered mists in rainbow colors!
Add a few grey/black sequins and enamel dots, and the layout is complete! As you can tell, I wanted to focus (almost all) of the color on the pictures only. :) Love how that looks! :)

So, as much as I would love to make this post go on forever (so I never have to leave!! lol!), I will bid you all farewell as a Butterfly Reflections Ink-er!
I can't wait to see what the NEW Design Team has in store for us all!
Hold on to your crafty supplies, it's going to be a blast!

Later, lovlies!


  1. Awesome layout! All of those colors against black and white really make the layout pop! It really screams!

  2. This is so cute, your photos really pop off the page. I love how you used the vellum and stitching always looks great on a layout!!!

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
