Neat & Tangled "So Happy For You" Watercolor Succulent Card

Hey Everyone, its Trish from Techniques by Trish here as your guest designer today.  Its been quite some time since I've had time to craft as we just recently moved our family from New Jersey to North Dakota.  After the how was unpacked and the kids were settled into their new routine, I was finally able to unpack my crafting corner and create!

For today's card, I'm featuring one of my favorite stamp sets from Neat & Tangled because it is so incredibly versatile.  It can be used for various different occasions and is easy to put together for a card.  And as a bonus, the Succulent Journaling Card Stamp Set & Die Combo is currently on sale in the BRI store, so head on over and pick it up!

I paired the stamp set with some Ranger Super Fine Detailed White Embossing Powder and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to create a really easy but beautiful watercolor look for the card.   Added some glitter card stock and sequins and this card came together quite nicely!

Unfortunately, shortly after creating this card, I started working on a bunch of other projects and my desk turned into a disaster and the card is NO where to be found.  I'm not sure if one of my two little ones got a hold of it and hid it or it just disappeared.  However, I do have a video for you all to show you exactly how I created it.

I hope you guys enjoyed this card, I really did love creating it.  I especially love how easy it is to get this watercolor look.  The Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers make it so easy to achieve this! Hope you guys are having a fantastic weekend and Happy Easter!

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&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
