stripes on stripes ROCK!

Hey guys, it's Jung here with my last post as a regular design team member.  I hope you guys have enjoyed seeing my creations every Wednesday for the past few months!  I know I have enjoyed creating and sharing with you guys here!  I am sure you will get tons of inspiration from the new design team members, and I hope to be back as a guest designer real soon (hint, hint!)  Okay, now on to what I have created...

Today, I have 2 striped cards for you!


For both of these cards, I used My Favorite Things' watercolor stripes background stamp, Tim Holtz distress ink (I'll list the colors I used below), Lawn Fawn's stitched heart stackables lawn cuts, Altenew's label love stamp setVersamark ink, Ranger's clear embossing powder, Lucy's card's sequin mix in gold dust, and some gold thread.  

First, I inked up my ink pad with distress inks, then I gave the background stamp 1-2 sprays with my water bottle before stamping.  Once I stamped, I gave the cardstock a couple sprays with my water bottle, allowing for some big water drops as well, and let it sit for a few seconds before dabbing up the water with a paper towel.  Once the cardstock was dry, I die cut a heart out of the middle.  I popped the outside panel up with some foam tape, and glued the inside heart to my card base to create an inlaid die cut effect.  I finished the cards up with one of the labels from my favorite Label Love stamp set, which I heat embossed, some gold thread, and my favorite gold sequin mix.  


For the blue/green ombre card, the distress inks I used were broken china, peacock feathersevergreen bough, and pine needles.


For the rainbow card, the distress inks I used were candied applecarved pumpkin, mustard seed, lucky cloversalty ocean, and wilted violet.

That's it for me!  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 …
