Hi Crafty Friends, Julianne here sharing another summer inspired card. I have a friend who is celebrating her son's first birthday and is doing a whale theme inspired birthday party so I wanted to make a card with the same theme. I used both Friends with Fins and Gill Friends stamp set from My Favorite Things. 
I started out by stamping all the images I wanted to use on some Neenah smooth card stock with VersaFine Black ink and clear heat embossing them. I colored in all the images with copic markers. Once I was done I started working on the background; I originally thought I would do some ink blending but went with alcohol inks instead, I really like the shine that they give to the card. 
I used the following alcohol inks for the background: Stream, Pool, Sail Boat and Turquoise. To control the inks I used my heat tool to just guide the colors in the direction I wanted them. While that dried I used the coordinating dies to cut out all my images, Die-namics Gill Friends, Die-namics Friends with Fins
I cut some white card stock down to an A2 size and then cut out the section I wanted the alcohol ink background to be showing thru. I stamped one of the sentiments from the Friends with Fins stamp set with Catherine Pooler Suede Shoes ink before adhering some foam tape to the back of each panel. I adhered the Yupo Paper to my card base with liquid adhesive and then added the various fish images all over the background. I then adhered the white card stock on both sides to my card base, the foam tape behind just gives the right amount of dimension for this card. Finally I added some droplet sequins to look like bubbles in the water and my card was complete. 
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 …
