Hashtag Winning

Hi Everyone!

Jenny here with my last post of my official Butterfly Reflections Ink DT term .  To end with a 'boom', I'm using the Butterfly Reflections Ink/Bossy Joscie collaboration stamp sets #Hashtag and #Hashtag Bossy.  These sets are so funny and feature a great array of #hashtags for almost any day of the week :)




To start, I die cut a butterfly from a piece of Inkadinkado Stamping Masking Paper trimmed to 4.25" x 5.5".  This butterfly is an older one from my stash but these by Reverse Confetti would work perfectly.



I then trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to the same size and overlayed the negative part of the masking paper so the bristol panel was fully covered.  Using Versafine Smokey Grey ink and an acrylic block, I stamped pretty much all of the individual tiny sentiments from both sets, both horizontally and vertically (both directions) all over the butterfly opening, making sure to overlap the edges.



I then used Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry and a mini ink-blending tool and blended ink, starting from the bottom of the butterfly and fading it out towards the top.  (Blending is much easier on Bristol Smooth in my experience).   I then removed the mask.

I stamped the 'dreamer' from the #Hashtag Bossy set in Versafine Onyx Black ink, and heat embossed it with WOW! Clear Multi-Sparkle embossing powder.  I then trimmed down the panel, taking off 1/8th inch off each side, and adhered to a hot pink card base using fun foam and double sided adhesive.



I stamped the #winning sentiment in Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide onto a scrap of Bristol, trimmed it out and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish, I added Sherbert Shimmer Nuvo Glitter Drops.


And that's it! I hope you enjoyed it, and make sure you get these two stampsets for your stash - they're a must have!

I just want to add that I have absolutely LOVED my time at BRI, and hope to pop up again in the future from time to time (if Vanessa will have me :D).  Have a wonderful day!

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 …
