Guest Designer Sunday with Latisha Yoast

Hello!! And happy happy happy Sunday to everyone!
Today we're introducing a new Guest Designer for the month of July! Latisha Yoast is here, and we couldn't be happier! LOVE her cards, love her style, just love her!
Read on below to love her too!

Hello Latisha here, sharing a “miss you” card today. 
I don’t know if it is because its summer, or maybe I live in Florida, or even that my husband is in the Navy…but it seems like anchors are pretty trendy right now.  I am seeing them as embellishments packs, stamps, embossing folders & pattern papers.  So I’m using a few “new to me” product with different anchors to create this miss you card.


Instructions:
1.      I started by cutting down, and scoring some navy blue cardstock for my cardbase.  At first I started with white, but it needed more color, so I switched to navy.
2.      Then I trimmed down white cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches, and embossed the paper using the Ditzy Anchors Embossing Folder.
3.      Adhere Fancy Pants Designs Making Waves pattern paper to the bottom of the embossed panel.
4.      Wrap twine around the bottom of the panel
5.      Adhere the panel to the card front using foam adhesive.
7.      Adhere the pattern paper die cut to the card front using foam adhesive.
8.      Using a smaller Lawn Fawn Stitched Oval die, die cut white cardstock.
9.      Using My Favorite Things Written in Watercolor stamp set, stamp “miss you” in Lawn Fawn Deep Sea ink, and from the same stamp set, stamp the hearts using Lawn Fawn lobster ink.
10.  Adhere the stamped die cut to the card front using foam adhesive.
11.  Tie Lawn Fawn Trimmings around a Maya Road Vintage Metal Trinket Anchor, an adhere to the card.


Tip
Since I used navy as my card base, i needed to trim down white card stock and adhere it to the inside of the card to write my message.

Materials Used:
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ Runner
navy cardstock
white cardstock

twine

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&#…
