Happy Howl-O-Ween

Good morning everyone! Are you glad today is Friday? I am. :)

Gladys here with a Halloween card for you today. Do you celebrate Halloween where you're from? In Hawaii it is a huge thing for the kids to dress up and go trick or treating. I don't dress up but I do like seeing people in their costumes except for the scary ones. The costumes on my card is nothing but scary. I used Lawn Fawn new stamp set called Happy Howloween which is available in the shop. The stamps include 3 dog images and various costumes. I love the hot dog costume but unfortunately I didn't use it on this card but will definitely make it's way onto a future project. I also used an older stamp set called Happy Haunting.
 For my background I colored it with distress inks: dusty concord, abandoned coral, mustard seed, and black soot. The dogs, costumes and haunted house were colored with Copic markers. I die cut the dogs and costumes using the coordinated dies which is also available in the shop. I noticed with Lawn Fawn stamps it's a good idea to get the coordinating dies because some of the images are really small and fussy cutting them can be difficult. Whoever thought of coordinating dies is a genius and made my life so much easier! I adhered double sided foam tape onto the images for added dimension. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder. To complete the card I cut the largest stitch rectangle frame from black cardstock to frame the card panel.
That is all for me today. Now I need to go shop for my kids costumes. What will you dress up as this Halloween?

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome 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…

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 …

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&#…
