Open DT call for January - April 2018

Hey, everyone! Whew! This past month seems to have blown by. I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I caught up on all those sale orders (thanks for those!!!) and celebrated my 40th birthday this past week. Now onto the next thing... Christmas. My hubby put up our lights late last week, we got our tree yesterday, the kids have their holiday concert tomorrow night and we'll start decorating mid-week. My mom always told me how fast time went by as you got older and now I know exactly what she means. It seems I blink and it's time to find new Design Team members for the next term so here I am!


We're looking for 5 new designers to join our team for the upcoming New Year. The term will run from January through April. Please send us 3-5 samples of your most recent work to butterflyinkersDT@gmail.com. If you've applied for the team before, pretty PLEASE make sure you're sending NEW artwork. I've gotten asked in the past for input and I have to say that if you applied and weren't chosen and send the same samples, the outcome will likely be the same. We'd also love links to your blogs, Instagram, any online galleries, YouTube channels, etc., anything that will give us an idea of what your creative style and abilities are. Please include if you are currently or have been on any other Design Teams in the past and tell us a little about yourself in a short bio.

This is a 4 month commitment starting in January and going through April. You must be willing to create 4 projects per month with one blog post per week. We do ask that you be exclusive to the online shop for Design Team work. You can design for manufacturers, blogs, kit clubs, etc., but we would appreciate it if you stuck with our online shop only for the 4 month term. We are always trying to grow so sharing links to the shop is required at a minimum of 3 times a week via various social media outlets. This is a BIG part of the DT's job and we appreciate you helping us get the word out.

In return for your creations and promotion, you will get $30.00 worth of free product of your choice each month. You will also get a 25% discount to add goodies to your monthly order! The shop is FULL of goodies and you'll be able to get yourself some at a generous discount. What's better than that?

If this sounds fun and like the opportunity for you, please send us your application. The deadline is Friday, December 22, 2017 at midnight EST. We will go over all the applications and choose the best fit for the shop. Thanks for the continued support and we look forward to seeing all of your incredible creations! 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

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 …
