So Blessed cards...

Hi my crafty friends, this is Kristy, and today I'm here to share so fun cards I've made as sets for friends! Here are some of the goodies I used:




Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Tim Holtz Watercolor paper
Neat and Tangled So Very Blessed stamp
Mini Misters
Versamark ink
Gold embossing powder
White embossing powder
Embossing tool

I absolutely fell in LOVE with this stamp when I saw it, and Vanessa sent me the pic knowing I would HAVE to have it!!! ;) I quickly put together a set of these beauties for a friend of mine, to add to our mug swap!

 I used the mini distress inks and swiped them across my craft mat. Then I spritzed the ink and laid the watercolor paper on top of it! I dabbed the paper into the ink where it needed more color. Then I used my heat tool to dry the paper. I used the embossing tool over the paper, and stamped the sentiment with versamark ink, sprinkled the embossing powder on top, and set it with my heat tool! I layered the watercolor paper onto some gold paper, and then onto some soft pink that matched the ink! And added all of these to the card front, done! I put 5 cards and envelopes together and tied them up with a pretty tulle bow!
LOVE the shimmer of the gold!!
I loved these so much that I decided to make another set as a gift, and use some other colors of distress inks! Yes, it's a little messy, but totally worth it! ;)



 Don't worry it eventually comes off! ;)
 This time I used white embossing powder, and I love the look with the jewel tone colors!
 And here they are all tied up and ready to give! ;)
Thanks for stopping by today! I just received the warm winter wishes stamp in the mail and I'm thinking of doing a similar card!
Make sure you pop by the store 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…

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 …

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&#…
