A Rainy Ride Layout!

Hello and good morning all!
Samantha here, and today I'm sharing another layout with you today made with lots of goodies from the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!
So let's start this October with some fun!

I created the background of my layout after taking this class at Big Picture classes! So I don't want to divulge too much! But here are some words: watercolor. fun. no brush.

Ok! So, I love using my 6x6 pads to back my photos! And although this layout is minimal in its embellishing, I still used lots of goodies from the shop!  You know one of my favorite ways to add watercolor to something is with Distress Inks! And this background could totally be made with Distress Inks!

I used the amazing, adorable, cute as can be puffy stickers from Crate Paper's Wonder collection! I also used the October Afternoon puffy stickers and the word strips from Maggie Holmes!

Those Thickers are my absolute favorite, I could use them on EVERY layout!

I LOVE this photo! My little Menn just love being outside, riding bikes, playing football, swimming, anything! And I love that they love to be outside! But when it had been rainy for about a week straight a few years ago, we had to go outside anyway and get some energy out! Just look at that face on the tricycle! It's raining, and we're riding, and we're so happy! Best memory ever!

So that's my layout!
Why don't we show this October who's boss and get some shopping done, eh? Ha!
Thanks again!


  1. Super cute layout! I love the sentiment! I think it's awesome your little Menn still go outside rain or shine. I feel like this would be a great layout for Seattle lol!

  2. This is just amazing!! That!! Love everything about it!

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 th

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 w

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 vel
