Open DT Call for Fall/Early Winter Term

My, my! How time flies!!! This summer has gone by pretty quickly. With having the physical shop now, we had a lot less time to do things, but still managed to squeeze in some fun days with a few more planned before the kids go back to school in 2 weeks. I was reading a DT call post from 2 years ago and it's funny how much of the same things we did... summer camp, beach days, camping and plans to go to the waterpark. I'm currently sitting outside on the deck, drinking a cup of coffee and enjoying the beautiful weather. Once again, it seems there's been a shift. The air seems cooler and it feels like fall is on it's way early. The pool water is cooling and there's a few fallen leaves floating on top. Fall IS my favorite, but I'm not quite ready for summer to end...



I can't believe that it's time to pick new Design Team members already! I've been a bad sharer this time around and I am truly sorry for that. My girls have been phenomenal and I appreciate them all so much. I am trying to get back into the swing of things, promise! That being said, our next call is OPEN. Please see below for details.


Please send us 3-5 samples of your most recent creations to butterflyinkersDT@gmail.com. Your samples can be cards, scrapbook layouts or whatever you like to create. If you've applied for the team before, PLEASE make sure you're sending NEW artwork. We'd also like links to your online galleries, blogs, YouTube channels, etc., anything that will give us an idea of what your creative style and abilities are. Please include if you are currently or have been on any other Design Teams in the past and tell us a little about yourself in a short bio.

This is a 4 month commitment starting in September and going through December. You must be willing to create 4 projects per month with one blog post per week. Sometimes an additional project will be asked for and appreciated. We do ask that you be exclusive to the online shop for Design Team work. You can design for manufacturers, blogs, kit clubs, etc., but we would appreciate it if you stuck with our online shop only for the 4 month term. We are always trying to expand and gain new customers so sharing links to the shop is required at a minimum of 3 times a week via various social media outlets. This is a BIG part of the DT's job and we appreciate you helping us get the word out. You can post links to your own blog posts, projects shared on FB/IG, a teammates fabulous creation, your favorite current products, sales, etc. There is ALWAYS something to share and again, a main part of the "job".

In return for your creations and promotion, you will get $30.00 worth of FREE product of your choice each month. You will also get a 25% discount to use as much as you'd like for your term. The shop is FULL of fabulous products with more coming in regularly and you'll be able to get yourself some at a generous discount. 


If you love fall and holiday crafting, this is definitely the perfect term for you!!! Please send us your application by August 25, 2019. We will go over all of the applications and choose the best fit for the shop shortly after. Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing all of your creations and adding more members to our talented team. 

Lastly, I am looking for part-time help at the shop which is located in Kingston, NH. I am looking to hire someone who can work with me on Saturdays and a few hours another day of the week TBD. I would prefer someone with knowledge about the products I sell that will be able to help customers and be able to pull online orders. Pay will start at $9 an hour plus a discount to the shop. Pay will increase when fully trained and able to cover the shop alone. At that point, I would need them to be available on Wednesdays from 12-7 pm. Weekends are a MUST as that is when I'm most busy and really need the help. If interested, please send an e-mail to butterflyreflectionsink@gmail.com.

Thanks for your continued support and letting me do what I love every day!

Sending crafty vibes and big virtual HUGS!

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 …
