Picture Perfect

Hi Crafty Friends, Julianne here sharing some cute and fun cards using the My Favorite Things Picture Perfect Stamp Set as well as the My Favorite Things Shutter Card Components Die-namics. I had so much fun creating these cards and surprisingly they were really easy to create.
When My Favorite Things came out with this stamp set I knew I wanted to create a card for one of my co-workers, I knew she would love the dog and cat images. I really wish there was a puffer fish in this stamp set, I think it would have been super cute as well. I started out by stamping the images with my Misti with some VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. This ink stays wet longer than most which is great because I used some Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to heat emboss the images. I colored all of my images using a variety of copic markers; once they were all colored in I started working on my card bases.
For my card I used a variety of paper from My Favorite Things including the Roses All Over Paper PadBundles of Blossoms Paper PadBlack & White Basics Paper Pad and the Black & White Stripes Paper Pad. I used the Polaroid Shaker Frame Die-namics as well as the Shutter Card Components Die-namics to cut all the pieces I would need. Next it was time to start adhering everything together, for that I used Lawn Fawn 1/8" Double Sided Tape as well as Mono Liquid Glue.
This stamp set comes with some super cute sentiments, for both cards I used the 'Our Friendship is Picture Perfect' as well as 'You Help Make Me my Best Selfie'. I really like the Best Selfie sentiment , it was perfect to describe my friendship with my co-worker.  
These cards were so cute and surprisingly super easy to make. I can't wait to try this out on different stamp sets that I have. Thanks so much for stopping by, 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 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 …
