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&#…

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 …
