You're Too Kind

Good morning and welcome back! It's Cassie here today, and I've got a fun fall card to share with you today. I've been itching to make more fall-ish cards. Today's card could really be given at any time of the year, but it does lean more towards fall look in my opinion. Let's take a look at it!
I used a technique that I saw another crafter use on Instagram where you die cut a bunch of objects, in this case leaves, and cover your card front with them. I love this technique because it really makes use of the dies that I sometimes forget about, or have trouble using a lot. The leaves I used for this card are Lawn Fawn's Stitched Leaves. They are the perfect size for filling the card front! After I die cut them and attached them to the panel I trimmed any overhang and got out my Distress Inks. I blended in Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed and Crushed Olive with a mini ink blender. I used a really light hand here to create softer colors, instead of the deep fall ones that are typically used.

Of course, I had to add water to the card to give the bleached splatter look that I love. Next I used the Single Stitch Line Circle die from My Favorite Things and die cut from some kraft cardstock. I also cut out a circle out of vellum to fit behind the stitched circle. I used my powder bag on the two pieces because I knew I wanted to heat emboss on them. I pulled together a sentiment from the Kindness stamp set from Honey Bee stamps, which I've been so excited to use, and stamped it on the circles using VersaMark. I heat embossed the sentiment using some white embossing powder. After that all that was left was to apply some foam tape behind the kraft cardstock and attach it to my card front!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you liked the card, and we will see you again soon with another card!

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&#…
