Open call for Winter Term!!!

Hi, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the fall and are easing your way into winter. It's been rainy here in NH and I'm actually anxious to start getting some white fluffy snow as I've seen some of you have already been started to get. I'm dreaming of a White Christmas. :) My husband decorated the house yesterday and we're planning to get our tree tomorrow. The kids are very excited about Santa and I'm just hoping to have some time to relax and enjoy the holidays! I can't believe it's December and that the year is almost over. I remember posting in January about how proud I was of my business and not sure if this year would compare and WOW, was I proved wrong in the best way possible. I doubled (almost TRIPLED actually) my business and I'm just beyond thrilled, but now I'm *really* nervous for next year!!! haha I hope it never gets old hearing, but I truly am very thankful for all of your orders and continued support. I couldn't do this without you and it means so much to me and my family!!! <3 I hope all of YOU & your families are doing well. xo

Now onto why I'm here posting on the blog!!! The next open call begins TODAY! WOO WOO!!! My past DT girls (I really even hate to call them "past" because I hope they stick around... forever :P) have been so amazing. They're so talented and supportive and just great girls. We're looking to add a few new members to our fun and fab crew!!!


Please send us 3-5 samples of your most recent creations to butterflyinkersDT@gmail.com. Your samples can be cards, layouts and/or pocket style pages or any other paper crafting projects. While I don't sell 12x12 paper currently due to the cost of shipping, I do sell SCRAPBOOKING items and always get the newest collections. It seems I've become kind of the go-to stamp shop which is GREAT, but I'd really like to expand selling more other products. If you've applied for the team before, PLEASE make sure you're sending NEW artwork. We'd also like links to your online galleries, blogs, YouTube channels, etc., anything that will give us an idea of what your creative style and abilities are. Please include if you are currently or have been on any other Design Teams in the past and tell us a little about yourself in a short bio. It is NOT necessary that you have been. I have had quite a few newbies join our team and they're been a great addition.  

This is a 4 month commitment starting in January and going through April. You must be willing to create 4 projects per month with one blog post per week. Sometimes an additional project will be asked for and appreciated. We do ask that you be exclusive to the online shop for Design Team work. You can design for manufacturers, blogs, kit clubs, etc., but we would appreciate it if you stuck with our online shop only for the 4 month term. We are always trying to expand and gain new customers so sharing links to the shop is required at a minimum of 3 times a week via various social media outlets. This is a BIG part of the DT's job and we appreciate you helping us get the word out. You can post links to your own blog posts, projects shared on FB/IG, a teammates fabulous creation, your favorite current products, sales, etc. There is ALWAYS something to share and again, a main part of the "job".

In return for your creations and promotion, you will get $30.00 worth of FREE product each month. In addition, you will also get a 25% discount to use as much as you'd like. The shop is FULL of fabulous products with more coming in regularly and you'll be able to get yourself some at a generous discount. Who doesn't love that?!

If you love getting crafty during the cold (or cold{er} weather in some parts), this could be the term for you!!! If it sounds like a good opportunity, please send us your application!!! The deadline is December 19, 2015. We will go over all the applications and choose the best fit for the shop just before Christmas. Wouldn't that make a nice present? :) Thank you again for the continued support and we look forward to seeing all of your incredible creations!!!

Vanessa

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 …
