Cherish Friendship

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Julianne here bringing you some friendship cards featuring some Honey Bee Stamps products. When these flowers first came out I fell in love with them, they came out for Mother's Day but wanted to show how to combine them to make something else.
I started out by stamping the Honey Bee Mother's Day Stamp Set using my MISTI. I absolutely love this floral stamp set, I really think you could end up using it to make a variety of different cards. I ended up stamping the image a total of 8 times because I knew I wanted the image on my cards twice. I've listed the copic colors I used in order to color in the flowers:
RV66, RV19, R89, YR23, YR24, YR27, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97

I used the Honey Bee Mother's Day Coordinating Dies to cut all my floral images out. Since I ended up putting them on a white background I could have just stamped onto my cardbase because you can't really tell, but maybe next time 😊
Using cardstock from Gina K and the Waffle Flower A2 size dies I was able to cut down my cardstock to different sizes to give the background a pop of color. I ended up using the same colors of cardstock to did cut the sentiment using the Honey Bee Cherish Die. I started putting my card together from there, adhering everything with liquid adhesive glue. For my sentiment I used the Honey Bee Cherish Stamp Set, I absolutely love Honey Bee sentiments stamp sets, they always come with so many sentiments to be able to use in so many different ways.To finish off each card I scattered some gold & clear sequins all over.


I loved the mood board for this month so decided to make an additional card to share with you all. The process for creating the card was the same but wanted to share what colors I used in case you would like to re-create it.

BG05, BG07, BG09, YR23, YR24, YR27, G00, G02, G19
For my card base I did decide to add some texture so I used the Honey Bee Radiant Circle Die; I really like that little bit of extra detail it gave.
Thank you so much for stopping by to see my cards, I hope you enjoyed them. 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 …
