Jump In!

Samantha here, and today I'm sharing a fun layout I made!

I started with a piece of 12x12 white cardstock and lots of goodies from the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!

I started by mixing some paint with embossing paste in various shades of pinks and oranges. Then I used a palette knife and spread the mixture through a really fun triangle stencil! Once that was dry, I used Distress Inks and some recycled packaging to add the watercolor look on top of the triangles!

I only matted my photo on some various pieces of white cardstock and some tissue paper in white! So fun! I used some of those really fun triangle acetate shapes from Pinkfresh Studio to add some more yellows and pinks behind the photo and around the layout!

As far as embellishing, I used things from Maggie Holmes and Amy Tangerine's collections! The camera brad is from the Open Book collection, the tiny little phrases are from the Confetti collection which are on top of that fun watercolored wood circle from the Rise and Shine collection! :)

I used my favorite Thickers for this layout: Shine Detail and Stitched Afterglow! I also stamped the date with the super awesome date stamp from the Ready Set Go collection! :)

This is just a typical day for us during the summer - swimming and jumping and laughing! I love how this collaged photo captures the FUN! :)

Thanks for spending part of your day with me!
Be sure to head to the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop to stock up on...ALL THE THINGS!!! The new CHA products are starting to work their way in, and you don't want to miss out! :)

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
