Autumn Wishes featuring Honey Bee Stamps

Hey friends!

Jess here! I'm back this week with a autumn card that's giving me all the fall feels. I love the way this card turned out - a perfect blend of sweet and rustic charm.


To get started with my card, I used my Mini MISTI to stamp out the truck and pumpkin images from Little Pickup by Honey Bee Stamps. I used black ink for this and stamped a couple of times to get a nice solid impression. Then, I went back with the sentiment stamps from the complimentary set 'Sending You Sentiments,' also from Honey Bee Stamps. I love that you can use this set to build your own custom sentiments. I went with 'sending you autumn wishes and loads of kisses.' Cute!


I colored up my images using Copic markers and I also used a Copic marker to add a bit of shadow under the truck so it didn't look like it was floating on the panel. Then, I grabbed my Clarity Stencil brushes and lightly dusted on some Antique Linen Distress Ink. At the bottom, I brushed on Gathered Twigs to help make it look like there was a sky and ground on my card front.


I grabbed a gorgeous piece of patterned paper from my stash to use as  background. I absolutely love this paper - I've been holding on to it for years, literally! I tied a piece of jute twine around the top of my card and then added some brown sequins. I filled in the sequins with Glossy Accents - I like how this gives another option for some added interest on your card.


Do you love fall? Let me know what your favorite fall activity is!

Hugs and love to you all,

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 …
