Happy Birthday!

Hello, everyone! It's Cassie here, and I'm back to share a card I made using some of my favorite products. Stencils have been my go to lately for fun and colorful backgrounds. I thought they'd be fun for today's birthday card too! Let's jump right in.

I started with the My Favorite Things stencil called Lots of Heart. Using my Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides, I ink blended over the stencil to get a nice gradient of color. When I was done I used some of the ink to splatter over the top of the card as well. It reminded me of water splashing :) 
I had already colored in these cute images from the Sea-prise!  stamp set, which can make cards go a lot faster if you're in a pinch. I love coloring while I'm watching tv, and then I've got a stock of colored images to use of my cards. It's a win-win! I adhered them down with foam tape once the card panel was dry. Next I stamped out the 'happy' from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy stamp set. I die cut it out with the coordinating dies and adhered that with foam tape as well. 
I also used the birthday stamp from the same Lawn Fawn set to heat emboss the rest of my sentiment on the card. To add some finishing touches, I did some Nuvo Crystal drops in the glossy white color for bubbles. And that's my card! 
I hope you enjoyed the project I made for today. Who else is crafting away on this Saturday?? I hope you all have a great weekend, and I'll see you again soon with another card!

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 …
