Happy (Stinky) Halloween!

Hi Everyone!  It's Jane again.  I'm here to share with you a card I created for Halloween.  As the title of this post suggests, this card features an adorable skunk from Lawn Fawn Stinkin' Cute stamp set.  This cute little guy is having a blast playing in the pumpkin patch.  I love combining old and new sets to create a scene!

To start with I took a piece of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended the following Catherine Pooler inks from top to bottom (Fiesta Blue, Mardi Gras, Lime Rickey ).  Then I added distress oxide ink in black soot to the  edges.  Using Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust, I splatted the background.  Then I added black gouche to the liquid stardust and splattered it across the background.  The panel was then cut using the largest of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables die and the Let's Toast Pull Tab Add-On.

Using another piece of inked Bristol smooth cardstock, I cut the grass using the Grassy Border die and the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables die and adhered it to the card base using foam squares.

Images from So Thankful, Spooky Village, Spooktacular and Stinkin' Cute stamped using Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar white cardstock.  The images were colored with Copic markers and white gel pen used for accents.  All the images were cut using coordinating dies and mounted using foam squares and Zig 2-way glue fine tip glue pen.  Using the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set, I used Versamark ink on black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Spectrum Noir clear overlay glitter pen used on the witches hat for sparkle.
I hope you enjoyed this card.  Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing with you again next week!  Have a lovely 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 …
