Sweet Trick or Treaters

It's Friday again, yeah, and it's Candice here sharing a sweet group of trick or treaters with you today using a wide variety of stamp sets, all from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store!


The stamps sets I used from Butterfly Reflections, Ink are:
I began my slimline card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base that fits perfectly into the size 9A envelopes.


To create the background, I blended ripe persimmon, carved pumpkin, wild honey & mustard seed and added some brown & white birch trees along with some Christmas lights that I turned into Halloween lights and used the coordinating dies to cut out.  Don't you just love the oranges we get to use for Halloween?!  Some of my favorites!

For the grass, I took a grass die and cut it twice to extend it for the slimline size (just cover the spot that it connects with an image!) and I flipped the top over to add a bit of spooky grass above.


For the stand, I stamped the happy Halloween and witching you in Lawn Fawn jet black ink and colored with copic markers.  Did you know that this ink can be used for alcohol markers AND watercoloring!  Awesomeness!  I then used the coordinating dies to cut out the stand and trimmed off the banner and added the string of lights.
Next, I stamped the witch & pumpkin, colored with copic markers and fussy cut out. 


The adorable trick or treaters I stamped with the jet black ink, colored with copic markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut out.  For a little bit of shimmer, I added wink of stella to the lights and added some white accents to the images using a white gel pen.

Thank you stopping by and that you are inspired to pull out your Halloween stamps and start creating!

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 …
