Just Sitting Here...

Hi all, it's Heather here with you today to share a fun card I created using some new goodies. I was so super thrilled to see this adorable Treehouse Scene die set from Hello Bluebird!! I knew I'd HAVE to have it and we can always count on Vanessa to have the latest and greatest of all things Hello Bluebird in the Shop!!! Here is a look at my card:
I started this baby off by die cutting out 4 of the trees. 1 of them was cut out of Bristol Smooth paper and the other 3 were cut out of 80lb white cardstock. I gave the edges of the 3 white tree trunks a bit of ink using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Blender Brush then inked up the entire tree that was cut out of the Bristol Paper using the same:
Next I went to work stamping and Copic coloring the images from the Hello Bluebird First Snow Stamp Set
I wanted to use this month's #brimoodboard for inspiration!!!! I know this is a wintery stamp set, but I wanted to create a fall scene so badly - and this Mood Board is just AMAZING!!!
I fussy cut the images out and colored the treehouse accents using the same Copic markers that I used on the critters' scarves. I glued the cardstock treehouses together using the Lawn Fawn Glue Pen. Next I inked up a scrap of Bristol paper with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and placed that piece between the cardstock treehouses and the Bristol treehouse and finally glued them all together.
I finished the card off with a sentiment from the Hello Bluebird Field Mice Stamp Set and some accents using a white pen.
Thanks for checking out my card. I hope it inspired you and I hope you have a chance to play along with the Mood Board as well!!

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 …
