Enjoy with Honey Bee

Happy New Years Eve! Kim with you today and I can't believe 2018 is already over, seems that the year just flew by! I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season so far! I am happy to be on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today, it has been a while!


I chose to share some super quick and fun Honey Bee gift card holders. The holidays often bring last minute thank you's and these are perfect for a coffee card! 

I used the fantastic Frappe Shake Card Honey Cuts dies and cut the tops (I didn't have 12x12 paper on-hand) to act as a latte gift card holder. Once those were die cut from Neena Desert Storm I took out one of the four Honey Bee Polka Dot Stencils (second largest) and used my Tonic Glitter Paste in Seaweed Quartz and Plum Spinel (these colors of embossing paste are just beautiful and they dry super quickly)


I put them to the side to dry and die cut my tops from Neena 80lbs cardstock and the sleeves from Lawn Fawn white Woodgrain cardstock and ink blended some Distress Hickory Smoke Ink. I then die cut the Enjoy sentiment also by Honey Bee from Tonic Specialty paper for both the enjoy and the shadow.



The sleeve slips off to reveal the inside of the card and the gift card. To finish off my two gift cards, I used the Hello Bluebird Holly and Pine dies in the matching paper and some Lawn Trimmings.

I wish all of you a wonderful 2019 and if you are out tonight, drive safe!

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 …
