Lots of pink!!!

Hey all, Jung here!  How has your day been going?  Today, I have a pink scrapbook layout and a pink card to share with you.


First up, is my happy birthday card:


I absolutely love these stamp sets from Altenew!  I used Wild Hibiscus, and Label Love.  First I cut a piece of water color paper to an A2 sized panel.  Then I stamped the flowers using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I added clear embossing powder and heat set.  To water color the background, I used Tim Holtz distress inks in the colors: picked raspberry, spun sugar, ripe persimmon, and scattered straw.
I stamped the happy sentiment, which is from Lawn Fawn's Winter Penguin stamp set.  I then cut out a stitched rectangle panel from the middle.  I attached the outer portion to a card base, then I popped up the inner portion with some foam tape to add dimension.  On a separate piece of scrap card stock, I stamped the birthday label with Versafine, added clear embossing powder, heat set, and then cut it out.  I attached the label with more foam tape.  To finish off my card, I added some gold sequins and stars from Lucy's gold dust mix.

On to my Friends Forever layout:



The older girls have been friends since they started dance when they were 3.  You could say that the younger girls were born into friendship, lol!

My favorite scrapbook products are white card stock, 6x6 paper pads, ephemera, and alpha stickers.    My favorite line of all time is Dear Lizzy by American Crafts.  You will usually find these items on all of my scrap layouts!  

Most of the patterned paper diamonds are from Dear Lizzy's Fine & Dandy 6x6 paper pad.  The fruit, drink, and "you make my heart smile" circle are from the Fine & Dandy ephemera pack.  I stamped out a frame from Lawn Fawn's flirty frames stamp set, and cut it out with the matching dies.  I cut it in half, and added to each side of my photo.  I also used the heart from the stamp set to add a little love to my layout.  I love how most Lawn Fawn stamps include little hearts or stars in their stamp sets.  The alpha stickers are from Amy Tangerine's Yes please sticker book.  

That's it for me friends!  Happy Wednesday!

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 …
