Pumpkins

Hey Everyone, it's Julianne here and I'm back today bringing you a card filled with all things Halloween! You all know how much I love Halloween and I made sure to use all the pumpkins. My birthday was this pass week and I love celebrating by creating a card just for myself, does anyone else ever do that?
I wanted to create a one layer card using some of my favorite Honey Bee Stamp products. For this card I used Pumpkin Patch Stamp Set as well as Mae the Mouse. I wanted to have this card be all pumpkins because that's what I love but I wanted to add in a little critter of course! For the witches hat I used Tabitha Stamp Set from Hello Bluebird.
This card involved a lot of masking I started at the bottom of my slimline card and worked my way up making sure to add in leaves and acorns with the pumpkins as well. I love that this stamp size has 5 different sizes of pumpkins, I can't wait to create more cards using these possibly for Thanksgiving. For my coloring I used a variety of copic makers for each pumpkin, I have listed the colors below:

YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, E71, E74, E77, E42, E44, E47, Y35, YR15, YR04, YR16, YR24
Once all my coloring was complete I added some white highlights with a white gel pen to the pumpkins as well as the mouse. I didn't want to cover up any of the coloring on the outside of the card so I stamped a sentiment along with two pumpkin images from the stamp set on the inside to finish off the card with Orange Twist and Tiki Torch Catherine Pooler Inks.
Thank you all so much for checking out my card and I hope you enjoyed it. Make sure to check out all the other great inspiration from the new design team on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Blog.

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 …
