Reach for the Stars in 2018

Hello BRI Friends, Waleska from craftinglovew here.  I am so happy today to share with you the very last post of this 2017!!!  What a great year we had at Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!!! So many amazing products added to the shop, so many talented designers share with all of us beautiful inspiration... Well too many cool stuff to mention Vanessa can tell you that better than me!!!
For my card today I wanted to give a little reminder to ALL of us... to Reach for the Stars especially on this coming 2018!


I started with a white card base, I smooshed two of my favorite Oxide ink colors into my craftmat and added a little bit of water: Starting with Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  I then with a fine brush splash into the hole piece little splashes of Seedless Preserves ink .  To give the galaxy look to my piece I sponge the borders with Black Soot and finally added gold splashes with the beautiful Gansai Tambi Starry Colors.

After that I stamp with VersaMark some of the stars from the Lawn Fawn Upon a Star Stamp Set in Gold Embossing Powder.  I cut the tiniest stars that come in the Scalloped Box Card Pop Up Lawn Fawn Die and glue them around the card with  Gold Glitter Cardstock.

I finally colored the cute Astronaut from the Out of this World Stamp Set and added the sentiment with gold embossing powder and adhere my galaxy panel to a glitter base and then to a black card base... I hope you liked my card and can be inspired by it!  I wish you the Best on this 2018!! May all your Dreams can come true! and remember to always REACH FOR THE STARS!!!

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 th

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 w

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 vel
