Lacey Leafy Thank You Cards

Hello, there! It's Lynnea back with a few more cards using the Lace Leaf stamp set from Concord & 9th. I love how versatile this set is! Remember that you can pick it up in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Shop when you're done here!





Here's my first card. The leaves are finally falling and there's a chill in the air up here in NE Pennsylvania! This is one of my favorite times of year (second only to Christmastime!). I started this card by using the Lace Leaf stamp set to stamp some orange/red ink and some yellow/orange ink to make an ombre leafy background at the top left and bottom right of my card. I embossed the leaf overlay with Versamark ink and some gold embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and that was it!




I wanted to take this autumn stamp set and make it not-so-autumny. So I stamped the leaf image repeatedly with Versamark ink on some teal paper and embossed the panel with white embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment from the Script Greetings set from Right at Home onto vellum and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I used scissors to trim around the swirly letters to make the vellum just a tiny thin strip. I stuck the strip onto the card and spattered some gold paint over the panel and the card is done!

Head over to the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Shop to get your hands onto these products! I can't wait to see you again next week! Bye!

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&#…
