Flower Patch Turnabout

Hi Crafty Friends, Julianne here with my first blog post as a design team member for Butterfly Reflections, Ink. I'm super excited to be apart of this amazing design team for such a great company. Since Mother's Day is just a few days away I wanted to share some super fun and easy Mother's Day cards that you could make in a hurry.
Have you had a chance to get any of the Concord & 9th Turnabout stamps? They truly are amazing and make it super easy to create some beautiful cards. For my cards today I used the Flower Patch Turnabout Stamp. I just love all the little flowers in this set, as well as the sentiments that are perfect for all the women in your life.
This is one of their newer turnabouts so it comes with the alignment aid, if you still have troubles with lining everything up like I do make sure to check out the Original Turnabout Jig, it makes the turnabout stamps even easier. Once I had everything aligned and ready to go I stamped the image while turning my cardbase. Using the Flower Patch Dies I cut out the flower image as well as the leaves; adhering the leaves with Mono Multi Liquid Glue. For the flower I used some foam squares to give my cards some dimension and added some gold twine before adhering to my card.
To finish each card off I scattered some Metallic Gold Confetti Mix from Pretty Pink Posh. If you haven't had a chance to try a turnabout stamp, I encourage you to as well as checking out all the other products Concord & 9th offers. 
Thank you for stopping by to see my cards, make sure that you come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the other design team members. I can't wait to see what you all create.

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 th

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 w

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 vel
