I am Rooting for You!

Hi Everyone! Alix here today with my first Design Team post. I would like to thank Vanessa giving a newbie like me a chance to showcase what I am passionate for. I am nervous and excited at the same time since this is my first time being a DT member, but I believe that I will have an amazing time hanging out with all of you on every Tuesday.


Valentine's day is about 5 weeks away. I am trying to jump out of traditional red and pink color tones and dive into something non-traditional scene with some Spring breeze. I pulled out all my stamps that related to Valentine or love, and this stamp from Lawn Fawn Rooting For You caught my eyes.
My first step in creating these cards was stamping multiples of all stamp images from this stamp by using Altenew dye ink mini cubes and used my MISTI stamping tool so I could easily re-stamp an image if it didn't turn out perfectly. I hand cut all images and assembled them. It was not a time saving process if you don't have coordinating dies.



I went ahead putting all pieces aside and started to prepare my box card base by die cutting Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-up. Then I pulled out my all time favorite Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink pad in Picked Raspberry and Cracked pistachio to build the background colors using ink blending technique. To create the soil for all veggies, I cut it with Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside die and inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo. And to create the background grass, I used Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside die and inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron.I love love sequins. How could I make a card without them?! I chose Pretty Pink Posh Easter Sequins Mix to decorate part of card base. And just like that, a cute box card is here for you!



If you haven’t decide what to made for your Spring or Valentine's card. I highly recommend you to try this Lawn Fawn Rooting For you stamp set. It was so much fun to play with these cutesy characters.

Thanks for spending time with me today, and I will see you again on next Tuesday! Have a wonderful day!

    1. Thanks Denise for leaving me a comment. I owned it for more than a year and haven’t touched until last week. I suggest you to stamp a while batch of these critters so you could make multiple cards. That would be time saver😉

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 …
