Have a SOUPer Birthday - PHO Real!

Morning and Happy Tuesday crafty friends!! Heather here to share some PUNtastic cards with you using Avery Elle goodies that Vanessa has stocked in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink. Shop RIGHT NOW!! I gotta tell ya, I love a good punny sentiment - I also happen to also LOVE Pho & Ramen - they are totally my jam! This Avery Elle Phonomenal Stamp Set is just that - PHOnomenal!!!! Every sentiment is amazing and I love that there are also Elle-Ments (aka dies) for each and every little stamp in this set! SO FUN! Today I created another card set to share with ya! I love making cards so much that a lot of times I work on a set at a time as opposed to a single card!
I stamped the images and colored them using Copic Markers - one of the fun things I did was stamp the little flower images included in the stamp set onto the bowl using a bit of masking paper so that I didn't go out of the lines or onto the rim of the bowl ;). This adds a nice bit of interest in my opinion! I also fussy cut the noodles out so that I could layer them onto the soup with foam tape for added dimension. Take a peek:
For the card bases I used a bit of coordinating Simple Stories patterned paper that I had in my stash. I cut a heart from each using Lawn Fawn's Outside in Stitched Heart Stackables Dies for my Pho / Ramen to sit into
Because it sure has a place in my heart
So corny, I know, but I sure love me some Pho!

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 …
