Adore You

Hi Crafty Friends, Julianne here sharing some super easy one layer cards. I really wanted to use the Altenew Adore You Stamp set but didn't know exactly what I wanted to do. The flowers in this stamp set are just so beautiful and I love all the great detail in them.
I started out by trimming down some white card stock just bigger than the A2 size and decided I wanted to just have the flowers stamped in the top right hand corner as though they were falling. Using my MISTI I positioned 5 of the flower images in the stamp set as well as the leaves, before stamping it I used a powder bag because I was going to be clear heat embossing the images. I stamped everything with VersaFine black ink and before the ink was dry I clear heat embossed them to give that shine to the images.
I loved how they came out and it was so simple and easy. After I was done stamping and heat embossing each card I used the Waffle Flower A2 Nesting Rectangle 2 Dies to cut down my card base.
I also stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set at the bottom of the card using the same technique as the flowers. I really loved the sentiment 'Every small thing you do makes a big difference in my life" I thought it was perfect and could be given to anyone. Using a Thanks die I had I die cut multiple colors of card stock and adhered with liquid adhesive. That finishes off my cards this week, they are truly simple designs but I love how they came out. Thanks so much for stopping by, I can't wait to see what you will create. Happy Crafting!

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 …
