Happy Wishes!

Hello everyone!

Coralynn here and I'm back with something a bit different.  A bookmark!  Just because the Otter from Lawn Fawn is just too adorable and I just had to use the new bookmark die from Avery Elle.

I cut out the bookmark twice from 110# card stock and glued them together for stability.  Then I used the Lawn Fawn Year 5 stamp and die set for the otter and Gleeful Garden stamp and die set for the little flower he's holding.




I used my copics to colour in the otter and for the little flower.  I used distress ink for the clouds and applied it with an ink blending tool.  I cut the clouds out of acetate from the "Shy's the limit" dies and kept it for a stencil and it works great for this technique.



For the waves, I used the Lawn Fawn scalloped borders dies and used the negative part for the waves and the patterned paper is from the Yours Truly 6x6 paper pack.  Then I used the bookmark die to cut out the waves so they fit the card stock and bring it all together.  I used Versafine Onyx black to stamp out the sentiment and it's from an oldie but a goodie Lunar Lights set from Lawn Fawn.  Then I used some enamel dots and embroidery floss to finish it up.




Don't forget to stop by the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop and check out all the goodies Vanessa has.  If you're looking for the new Distress Inks, there are still some left so go over and grab them while you can!



Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

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 …
