...Sorry I'm Slow

Happy Tuesday crafty peeps! Heather here to share a fun shaker card that I created using some of my favorite things: Distress Oxide Inks, Lawn Fawn Products, and fun Shaker bits!
I started this card off by stamping and coloring a few adorable Lawn Fawn sloths from the Hang in There and the Slow Down and Enjoy Stamp Sets. The sloths in both of these stamp sets work so well together! I also added the balloon, birthday present, piece of cake, and little party hat from Lawn Fawn's Party Animal Stamp Set and a few leaves from the Flutter By Stamp Set. What I love so much about Lawn Fawn Stamps is the fact that so many images and stamp sets can work together so seamlessly!
I decided that I wanted to create a shaker card for these little guys and inked up a piece of Bristol paper using Twisted Citron & Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. This is my favorite paper to ink blend onto. I used a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 Stitched Rectangle die by Lawn Fawn to give a stitched feel to my card base then cut the Outside In Stitched Hearts die by Lawn Fawn from the center of the card. This is when I stamped my sentiment - because we all know stamping on a card with foam tape is never fun!
Then I added a bit of acetate to the front card panel and a bit of foam tape after that. Finally I added some amazing clay heart shaker bits by Studio Katia along with some giant sequins I've had in my stash forever! I love how this card came out and I hope it inspires you to mix and match your stamp sets to create fun scenes! Have a great day everyone!

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 …
