Watercolor - Altenew - Thinking of You

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a card with you that was made by special request from youngest daughter.

I used the Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp Set on this card HERE, but when my on of my Squirrel's asks me to use it again, I gotta say yes! Well, that and I LOVE this set, so it's easy to say yes.


This card was super duper easy too! I stamped my Images on some Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink then heat embossed them with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder.

I used Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint to color these GORGEOUS images in.


Next, I used a couple of dies from the My Favorite Things Blueprints 24 Set. One for the Watercolor Panel and one on a piece of My Favorite Things Kraft Cardstock.

Before I added the Kraft Cardstock to my Lawn Fawn Noble Fir Cardstock Card Base, I used the My Favorite Things Woodgrain Background Stamp and MFT Kraft Hybrid Ink.


To finish off my Card, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Images and some gold floss.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today folks! I sure hope you enjoyed my card. As always, stop back by tomorrow to see more AH-mazingness and head over to the Butterfly Reflections Shop and check out all of the crafty goodness!

Until next time!

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 …
