Meow-y Good Day

Hello everyone! It's Ashley with a card showcasing a stamp from a new company - Evelin T. Designs! I knew I needed this Sneaky Kitties stamp as soon as I saw the preview! Look how cute they are!!


I started by stamping the Sneaky Kitties with my MISTI and Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink onto Bristol smooth cardstock, then I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used the large Polaroid die from Hello Bluebird Photo Stack to cut out the part of the image I wanted on my card. I cut that same die out of white cardstock and white foam and glued them together for some dimension on the frame. I made the background by die cutting white cardstock with the Pretty Pink Posh Lattice Background and attaching it to Lawn Fawn Fog cardstock.


After attaching my Polaroid pieces, I used the "smile" word die from Hello Bluebird Photo Stack on some Lawn Fawn Sage Leaf cardstock and attached it to the bottom of the photo frame with my Zig glue pen. I wanted to use the "Have a Meow-y Good Day" sentiment from the Evelin T. Designs Sneaky Kitties set, but I needed it on one line. I decided to cut the stamp apart, which I've never done and terrified me, but I think it worked out pretty well! After lining up the individual pieces with my MISTI, I stamped it with VersaMark on Lawn Fawn Sage Leaf cardstock and embossed with white before adding the strip to the bottom of the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my card! Have a wonderful day!

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 …
