Thank You So Much

Hi, Butterfly friends! It's Cassie here, from Creatively Cass, and I'm happy to be joining you again today with another card! Today I got to play around with some fun products from a few of my favorite companies to come up with the cute fall thank you.
I started the card today by using my washi tape to mask off stripes so that I could do some ink blending. Once my tap was in place I used an ink blender and the colors Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick to blend onto the stripes. I made sure to keep Tattered Rose to the center and Worn Lipstick just on the edges for an gradient look. Before I took the tape I splattered some gold from a Metallic Accents Water color set over the stripes as well. Then I peeled up the washi tape and let it dry. 

I used the same water color paints on a piece of Bristol Smooth water color paper. I let that dry and die cut the Stitched Leaves from Lawn Fawn from the paper when it was dry. I arranged those in a cluster on the stripe piece of paper. The three smallest leaves were added with foam tape, while the rest were adhered directly to the base. 
Finally, I stamped out the cute little bunny with a scarf from Pix's Favorites on some Neenah Solar White paper as well as the speech bubble from Heffy Doodle's Whatcha Sayin. I used my Copics to color them, and fussy cut them both out. For the speech bubble I used a copper embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment on it. Both were added to the card with foam tape. Finally, I added some white gel pen accents, and my card was complete! I hope you enjoyed the card I made for today! Be sure to check out the products I used in the Butterfly Reflection Shop. Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon with another card!

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 …
