Wicked Halloween!

Hello, everyone!!  Laurie here to share a Halloween card with you.  First off, let me admit that I am not a fan of Halloween. I know, right??!!  Deep down I want to like it but....
However, I did have a blast making this card.  I used an actual Halloween stamp set and a not even remotely close to a Halloween set.


This is where my thought process started. I started by going through scraps of cardstock to find halloween colors (that cardstock is actually purple).  I used the First Step Stamp Set and Co-ordinating Dies from Waffle Flower.  


I then stamped the shoe images again on white cardstock and drew "stockings". I coloured the stripes with my alcohol markers.  Can you see where I'm going with this?? :)  

To create a custom sentiment for my card, I used the Peek A Boo Stamp Set from The Greeting Farm.  I only used the "Have A" and "Halloween" portions of the "Have a Magical Halloween" sentiment.  For the custom part of the sentiment I used the Sophisticated Script Stamp Set from Concord and 9th.


I created a black frame using Wonky Stitched Rectangles from My Favourite Things and put my card together.  I added Matte Black Enamel Dots and stamped some stars in purple ink.  As you can see, I did make some color changes to the bows, using green and orange cardstock and the paper piecing technique.  And witch shoes aren't complete without a little sparkle, right??  I added a TON of Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and Glossy Accents to finish them off.



Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Have a "wicked" week!!!!

Laurie

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 …
