Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!

Well I have to say this post is bitter sweet for me as it's my last one for the Jan-Mar DT term is now coming to an end.  But you haven't seen the last of me!

With that, here is my card.

I used the WPlus9 Sunshine Layers dies for the panels.  The inside panel is from MME  and I used the 3x4 die in this set and the pink panel is regular card stock and I used the scalloped die.




I used a piece of scrap card stock and from WPlus9 More Fresh Cuts I stamped the Happy birthday sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I also used the Scribbles MFT dies and cut them out vellum.  In the corners of the card base I used the corner stamp from the LF Blissful Botanicals which is an oldie but a goodie and I used Hero Art soft pool ink just to give it a bit of interest.  I finished off the card with a few sequins.  




I'm the type that I keep my newest goodies on my desk in a basket but to me as soon as they go in their storage pockets, it's like they aren't new anymore.  So just to make it easier to get in and out of the packaging here is what I do. 


I take my scissors and I cut the tops off the packaging.  So I can take the stamp set out the top and I don't have to deal with the sticky strip that keeps the bottom closed.  I normally end up getting that stuck to the stamps as I'm trying to get it back into the packaging. 


Nothing fancy but it makes for faster crafting!!

Don't forget to stop by the BRI shop as there is so much awesomeness going on, it's hard not to put everything in my cart and check out!!!!  

Thanks for stopping by!

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 …
