Hello Bluebird Halloween and first DT post!


Hello everyone, Amanda here with my very first DT project for Butterfly Reflections, Ink.!  I'm so excited to be joining this talented group of crafters in this last quarter of 2018.  I'm fortunate, as this is my favorite time of year, with Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas so close together!

Today I'm featuring Hello Bluebird, a brand that I am quite enamored with!  All of the products I've used on this card come from their latest release and can be found in the BRI online store! I'll link everything along the way!

So I started by inking my A2 sized background with Scattered Straw, Weathered Wood and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, then finished with a little white acrylic paint splatter to create my night sky. 


I cut the black zig zag frame out using Hello Bluebird Gallery Frame #3 dies The hill is by Newton's Nook Designs, Land Border Dies and I inked that up with Tea Dye and Mustard Seed Distress Ink. I then die cut my scene pieces using dies from HB Halloween Tree Dies and Spooky Scene Dies. I added a little distress ink to the leaves, tree and ghosts to add shadow and depth!


Lastly, I stamped out the tiny sentiments from Halloween Party Stamp Set, trimmed them out and glued down around my scene. I just love all the little details in these Hello Bluebird stamp and die sets, this was just so much fun to create!


Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you've enjoyed my spooky Halloween card and are inspired to create something fun today!

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 …
