Guest Designer Sunday with Annette Witherspoon

Hello Butterfly Inker Fans. Annette Witherspoon here again as your friendly February guest designer. Today, I made a funky, freestyle collage tag.




First, I stamped a kraft tag with the Falling Hearts background stamp by Neat and Tangled using White Unicorn pigment ink from Hero Arts. This has to be my favorite ink. The images always turn out opaque, giving you a nice, crisp look. You can find it in the store in the small cubes.

Now, for the star of the show – the Serendipity 6x6 paper pad by Dear Lizzy. All of the banners are from this super trendy set. I love it. The gold heart Thicker is part of the same collection.

Speaking of trendy, I used the new In Every Way set by Waffleflower Crafts to stamp the sentiments. If you look closely at the word “Perfect” you may notice that I double stamped it. I first stamped it in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress  and then stamped over it in black just slightly below and to the right of the first image. It gives it a 3D appearance and really helps the image pop.

After adhering all the banners and sentiments, I got out my sewing machine, stitched them together, and then finished off the tag with some ribbon.


I want to thank you for allowing me to hang out with you this month. I really enjoyed sharing my creativity with you. Feel free to visit me any time at my blog A. Spoon Full of Sugar Crafts.

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 …
