Butterfly Reflections Ink - Floral Fall


Hi everyone, Amanda here featuring a stamp set that's EXCLUSIVE to Butterfly Reflections, Ink, called Floral Fall. The images in this set were drawn by a FAVORITE artist of mine, Angie Blom. I just love all the little floral doodles drawn into the images!

I started by cutting a 4x4 piece of white cardstock.  I used GinaK Wreath Builder Stencil along with the small images, (leaves, flowers, acorns), to create my wreath. This is such a fun way to make your stamps go further, so if you've not tried this wreath building stencil, you are missing out on the fun!

After I stamped out my wreath, I chose the owl, and stamped it once in the center, then again to fussy cut.  I copic colored all my images, then I sponged on some Peacock Feathers Oxide Ink over the owl I stamped on my base. Then I took the fussy cut owl and popped him up over the oxide ink.

My black card base is 5" squared and my patterned paper by MFT is 4.75" squared.  I cut the banner using Newton's Nook Designs Frames & Flags die set.  I white heat embossed the sentiment from MFT Fall Friends using Hero Arts Embossing Powder. Last I added some enamel dots from Echo Park.

Thanks so much for joining me here today, make sure to pop in the shop to check out this amazingly beautiful exclusive BRI stamp set!

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…

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 …

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&#…
