Halloween Haul

Hello and happy Monday everyone! Today I'm sharing my last Halloween card for the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. In just a few days Halloween will be over and Christmas time will commence. Before jumping into the new holiday, I wanted to capture that feeling I got as a kid at the end of Halloween night. After spending the evening walking around neighborhoods collecting treats, my brother and I would go home and get our candy checked. Before even changing out of our costumes, we would pour all of our candy out on the living room floor to sort it and make negotiations. I think with this card, I captured that feeling perfectly!

To start my scene, I stamped the images out from sets Year Seven, Screen Time, Booyah, and Costume Party. The images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, along with the sentiment. With Lawn Cut Stitched Rectangle Stackables, I cut out the largest rectangle for the background. Using Distress Ink Pumice Stone and my blending tool, I inked the background. I then attached the card face to some patterned candy paper and then adhered that to the card base with a tape runner. I added the images to the scene using a Lawn Fawn Glue Tube. Lastly, I added gel pen accents to make everything pop!

I hope you all have a great last week of October and a Happy Halloween. I'll be back again on the blog next month with some new holiday inspiration. Until then, you can find my other works on Instagram @CaveWomanCreations. I also wanted to leave a reminder of the HUGE clearance sale going on at the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop right now! 40-60% off!!! You don't want to miss these deals!

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 th

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 w

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 vel
