Welcoming Our NEWEST Design Team Members!!!

Hi, everyone! April seems to have went by in a flash and we're already a week into May. Craziness! Since it's 8pm here, I'm going to get right to it.

First up, we have Ashley Ebben. Ashley doesn't have any Design Team experience, but her cards and photos would lead you to believe otherwise! She did formerly work at Archiver's and did some samples there so that's fun! Speaking of FUN... check out these rainbow kitties. Give me RAINBOW #ALLthethings!  Even cats, which I'm allergic to. HAHA


Britney Ritchey lives in Sweet Home Alabama! (P.S. That's one of my favorite movies. Tough decision that girl had to make. Much like me. LOL) Britney's been crafting for years, but only recently started making this style of cards. Cuteness, right?!


Davina Cantrell will be joining the team in a different capacity than normal. The level of talent in this lady blows me away. Her cards are little works of art. She will be posting bi-weekly with inspiration from our fabulous monthly mood boards that Amanda creates. We hope to get more people to play along so you totally should. Yes, YOU! ;) Since there was no way I could share just ONE because I love them ALL, LOOK at these scenes. She has an Etsy shop if you want to own one of her magical creations. I went to buy the pink winter fairy one, but it was gone when I got there. *sniff*


Heather Innusa used to teach classes at her LLS in Florida, she's been a customer for a while and has applied for the team several times so I'm extra glad to have her joining us this term. Persistence pays off, huh? hehe I fell completely in love with this card. <3 I've seen a few of these going around IG and am impressed with people's craftiness and commitment. HA!


Julianne Foyil was actually chosen for the team before only she'd accepted another DT position before my e-mails went out. Funny story, but when she applied this time, she had a different last name and I picked her again. Guess I'm a fan. ;) hehe Look at this BEAUTY!


So those are lovely 5 new additions! I hope you'll find lots of inspiration throughout their term this spring/summer. As usual, you can find all the goodies in the shop online and if you're within traveling distance to New Hampshire, visit me in-store located in the Carriage Town Plaza at 53 Church St. Unit 12 in Kingston, NH!

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 …
