Happy Fall!

Hi everyone!  This is Jane.  I'm very excited to be joining the Butterfly Reflections Ink Design Team for fall and early winter 2019!

Fall is my favorite season and I decided to use stamps and dies from the new Lawn Fawn release which are now available online at Butterfly Reflections Ink!



Background created using Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock as the base.  Catherine Pooler inks (top to bottom): Samba, Coral Cabana, Orange Twist blended with blender brushes.  These inks are so vibrant and saturated, they are some of my favorite inks to use on cards.  After letting the ink dry, the background was cut using Stitched Cloud Backdrop from Lawn Fawn.



Lawn Fawn Spooky Village and Tree Before'N Afters stamp sets used.
Images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Neenah solar white 110lb cardstock and colored with copic markers.  Coordinating die sets for Spooky Village and Tree Before'N Afters were used to die cut the images.  Sentiment was stamped from the Thanks A Latte set by Lawn Fawn using Versamark ink on black cardstock, then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside border die and grassy border dies cut from another piece of Bristol cardstock.  Garden Party ink from Catherine Pooler was then ink blended on the die cut pieces.  All pieces were arranged and then glued using Nuvo glue and foam tape.



White heavy weight card stock cut using LawnFawn Reversed Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Windows die.  The frame was adhered by cutting foam tape into thin strips and then mounted to the  card front.
For added sparkle, Nuvo Glitter Drops in white blizzard used on a few leaves.  Nuvo Crystal drops in morning dew added to the windows of the house to add a 3D effect.  The entire card front was then glued onto an A2 card base.


I'm looking forward to sharing with you on this blog for the next few months.  
Have a wonderful day!

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 …
