Small (ish) Square Card Set

Hey there, everyone! It's Lynnea! I have a cute little card set to share with you today! I'm doing my very first craft fair in a few weeks, so I need to bulk up my card stash! Making duplicates is (obviously) a quick way to do that. It's super easy to make multiples of cards once I have a design in mind and all of my supplies out on the table!






These cards are super duper simple! I made 4 card bases from heavy weight cardstock that are 4.25" square. I die cut some 4" squares from different designs of the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid papers using the largest die from Lawn Fawn's Small Stitched Square Stackables. Then I put 3 of the 4 (the x's, dots, and dashes) dies together from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Borders to decorate my background a little bit more.






I wanted to use the Friends for All Seasons: Spring stamp set from WPlus9. These pandas are just the cutest and I fount this set hiding out in the back of my stamp bin. I know it's not spring, but I think this set is so versatile that you could use it any time of the year! I stamped out some pandas and their accessories using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I colored in the flowers with some simple Copic coloring. I die cut my pieces and some fun foam using the matching dies and glued these little guys onto my cards.


That's it! These were so simple to make, but I think they are just too cute! Remember to head over to the Butterfly Reflections, Ink shop to pick up these products...and more! There are so many new products that were just added! I'll see you next week!

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 …
