Head in the clouds card...

Hello crafty friends! This is Kristy and today I'm here to show you a quick and cute card I made using one of the Butterfly Reflections ink exclusive stamp sets, Head in the clouds stamp set.

This weekend I attended a very fun event with lots of crafty celebrities and goodies! One of the teachers was the fabulous, Paula Cheney! She brought a TON of Tim Holtz products and gifts for us!!! One of the techniques in her class included the mini distress ink pads and blending tool, and she encouraged me to get mine out and use them with stencils! So that's what started the inspiration for this card! Here's a picture of some of our group with Paula (1st on the left, and I'm the 2nd to last on the right):
Here's what I used:
Head in the Clouds stamp set
Multi Medium Matte
Super Fine Silver Embossing powder
Ranger Mini Ink Blending foam and brushes
TH Mini Distress Inks, Peacock Feathers
Paper Smooches Spectrum Dies
TCW Mini Clouds stencil
VersaMark ink (I used this instead of versafine, which is in the picture)
Glitter fun foam
Sequins
Water and a paintbrush

First, I cut the card base and then taped off the top, and taped down the stencil. I LOVE clouds! ;)
I used Peacock Feathers and a mini distress tool with this cool stencil. Small circular strokes work the best!
Then, I used a paint brush and water to flick some water droplets onto the distress ink clouds. I love how the water repels the ink and it gives a soft watercolor type of look!




Next, I used my Cuttlebug to cut out some small cloud shapes with the Spectrum dies, using glitter fun foam!



I positioned my puffy clouds and the stamp on the card. Then I embossed the sentiment, added the clouds, and embellished with some sequins using my favorite adhesive, Ranger's Multi Medium Matte!









Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you pop on over to the shop and pick up these goodies before they are GONE! ;) -Kristy

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 …
