Let's Hang Out

Karen B. here from The Bald Dragonfly, and I first want to thank everyone who entered my birthday giveaway and left sweet comments (winner posted below)! It was a great week for sure. I have a fun and cute card today showcasing stamps and dies from a mix of companies that are available at the shop!

First, I stamped the cute dog images from MFT's You Make My Tail Wag Stamp Set and colored them up with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Onto some red cardstock, I stenciled a brick pattern with MFT's Small Brick Wall Stencil and Fired Brick Distress Ink. I mounted the panel onto a white card base (with the fold on the left, instead of the top) and die cut a circle in the upper center. Then I die cut a series of circles from Waffle Flower's Flowers Circle Inverted Dies in white paper and layered these on the front panel. I stamped and heat embossed in white a sentiment from Neat & Tangled's Better Together Stamp Set onto black cardstock and attached this to the card base with a tiny staple.

On the inside front of the card, I affixed the dog's face, peeking through from the outside of the card.

I affixed a yellow piece of cardstock on the inside of the back panel and stamped "Let's Hang Out" from Neat & Tangled's Better Together Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

Just a reminder that if you see something that is out of stock at the store, please click the "Put Me On The Waiting List" button so that Vanessa knows you absolutely need this item and can try to order more!

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 th

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 vel

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 w
