A Very Love-y Layout

Samantha here, and happy Valentine's Day! :)

I'm here sharing a super lovely, and love-y layout on this day of LOVE! :) I used a lot of goodies from the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop, so let's get to it! :)

See? Lot's of goodies!

I found this picture of my littlest Mann, when he was just a wee one! (3 years ago - ack! Where did the time go?!)
I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set Hello Baby, and heat embossed on the photo itself! Shh, don't worry, the photo wasn't sad or scared!  I also used the Sharp Backdrops stamp set to add some texture to the watercolored areas.
And speaking of texture - I also added some more texture with a stencil and some embossing paste!
All of the papers and layers behind the photo are from the amazing Kiss Kiss paper pad - LOVE that paper pad - swoon!

I used some white paint to lighten up the busy background paper, and then when it was dry, I also added some watercoloring with the Worn Lipstick Distress ink! And for the title, I used my FAVORITE thickers - from the Amy Tangerine Stitched collection - Afterglow! LOVE that font!

At the bottom of the layout, I have a cluster of goodness!
The photo overlays are from this Crate Paper collection,  and the bow - LOVE the black and white polka dot bow!! - is from Maggie Holmes!
Oh, and I added some enamel dots and this wooden button from the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer collection! LOOOOVE those wooden buttons!

Ok, I think that's finally it...ha ha!!
Are you shopping on this day of love? I hope so!!!
What better way to spend the day, than buying more things you LOVE and need?! *wink wink* *nod nod* ha ha!
Happy Valentine's Day!!

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
