Crafty Friends


Hi, Crafty Friends!  Kathy here sharing my very first card as a Butterfly Reflections, Inc. design team member and I'm so glad you've stopped by today!


There is something special that happens when crafters meet each other.  They become instant friends!  I've met so many incredible people through this 'little' hobby both in person and on line that I wanted to start off creating something for all of you!


For my card, I used this super fun Crafty Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th with images that are near and dear to my heart!  Lining up the stamp to layer the different colors was easy peasy with my trusty MISTI, of course.  

I stamped the images with Catherine Pooler inks Tutti Frutti, Lime Rickey, Aquatini and Icing On The Cake. I must say, I'm new to these inks and they are A-mazing!  The colors stamp rich and vibrant and clean up is a breeze especially with the Lawn Fawn Stamp Shammy!

The die cut shapes are Concord & 9th Crafty dies which coordinate with the turnabout stamp, but can be used on their own, too!  I layered the die cuts on Lawn Fawn Ground Coffee and Peacock cardstock using one of the Concord & 9th Crafty dies.


Hope you'll follow us via email, Facebook and/or Instagram so you're sure to catch all the DT will be sharing...not to mention, you'll be among the first to hear about deals and specials!

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 …
