Spring Wreath

Happy Tuesday fellow crafters! Danielle here on the BRI Blog with a fun new card featuring the new Pretty Pink Posh Spring Wreath and it definitely has me feeling that spring is in the air!!


I wanted to keep this card simple and vibrant, so to have the main focus on the beautiful wreath! I started off with a white card base, followed by a vibrant pink piece of card stock that adhered directly onto my card base using altenew permanent tape adhesive.  I stamped the Spring Wreath using Gina K amalgam premium black ink on water color paper.  I love this ink because it leaves a crisp, solid impression and can be used with many different mediums.  I colored the dainty floral wreath using Zig Kuretake markers.  With just a little water these markers give you the watercolor paint effect.  Using the coordinating spring wreath die, I ran it through my die cutting machine.  I also used the same coordinating die and ran it through again with the pink cardstock that I used for my previous layer.  I wanted the left over middle piece to use for my sentiment.  

Before I stamp my sentiment using Versamark Embossing ink, I alway use an embossing powder applicator and sweep the entire piece where I plan to heat emboss.  This helps the embossing powder only stick to the ink and no where else on your cardstock.  I used Lawn Fawn white embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiment.  I wanted to add a little shadow underneath where I would be placing my wreath, so I ink blended using Distress Ink Oxide in Picked Raspberry on plain white cardstock.  I adhered my wreath using foam adhesive and then my sentiment that fit perfectly because its the left over piece directly in the middle using permanent tape adhesive.  I added some Pretty Pink Posh Watermelon Jewels for extra glitz.


I love the CAS feel of this card and the pop of color! Even though it's always spring and summer down here in Florida I still miss the spring feel from up north! Make sure you stop by the shop to pick up this beautiful set and I'll see you next Tuesday! Have a great day! xoxoxo

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&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
