It's Seal-Abrate Time!

Hello friends! Amy (The Craft Bunny) here. Now that it's April, I hope you are enjoying Spring in your city. I am already looking forward to Summer :) My family used to go to a theme park similar to SeaWorld in the summer. It was always a very fun experience. Today, I have channeled my happy memory to create a seal card.


The Seal-Abrate stamp set from Avery Elle is a small stamp set. I like this set very much because it is so affordable. However, small sets can be limiting when I build scenes. So, I combined it with MFT's Take the Stage Die-namics to make a simple performance scene.


Below is my step-by-step:

  1. Die cut the stage pieces from white card stock. Blend with Antique Linen and Salty Ocean distress inks. Mount with foam tape. Blend some Pumice Stone at the bottom to make a ground. Add some water droplets
  2. Stamp the seal and his stand with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Color with Copic markers. Die cut out with coordinating dies. Mount with foam tape
  3. Die cut the show logo with MFT's Peek-A-Boo Die-namics. White heat emboss the sentiment (or show name in this case), then blend with distress ink and add some water. Mount onto a patterned paper circle
  4. Embellish the show logo with some Wink of Stella clear glitter and add some Lucy's Cards sequins

Are you excited for Summer? Let me know if you are going to see some ocean animals! Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful weekend!

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 …
