Bye for Now! New Adventure Ahead!

Hello crafty friends! Amy (The Craft Bunny) here sharing my last card as the design team. My term has passed by so quickly! It's sad to say goodbye, but goodbye also means new adventure ahead. So, my card today is about adventures.

I have used Create a Smile stamps to build a scene. Imagine yourself sipping tea in a flower garden. Beyond all the pretty flowers in sight, there is a hot air balloon embarking on a new journey. More details below.


  1. Prepare two pieces of watercolor paper. On the first paper, white heat emboss the flowers and leaves from the Magic Flower stamp set. Mask when necessary
  2. On the second paper, white emboss a few flowers and the hot air balloon (from the Uplifting set)
  3. Paint the images with Gansai Tambi watercolor, then fussy cut out the flower cluster
  4. Create clouds with a stencil made from MFT Die-namics Stitched Cloud Edges
  5. Stamp the sentiment in brown, mount the flower cluster with foam tape and embellish with sequins

It's been a blast working with Vanessa. She is the most hardworking woman ever!! I'd like to thank her for choosing me on this design team, which have brought so much to me! I'd also like to thank all of you who read and share my blog posts! Thank you so much!!!!

As for my own new adventure, I am now on My Favorite Things' design team. So, I will be happily busy. I hope to see you again on my blog or Instagram. Bye for now! Take care!

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 …
