Congratulations on Your Wedding!


Hi cute friends! I’m Saedi and I am soooo excited for the chance to be blogging here with Butterfly Reflections, Ink. I’m a huge fan of the talent they share and of course, the amazing products in the shop! I'm starting off with a card I made for a wedding, because I never have enough wedding cards at this stage of my life. This Bicycle set from Lawn Fawn is my favorite wedding set to use! It's just so fun and you can do so much with it!




Here are the super cute products used from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store:

I started by stamping my images from Bicycle Built for You and Wavy Sayings using my Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the bicycle, boy, girl, flowers, cans, veil, tophat, tie and the small heart, which I stamped multiple times in a group. I colored the images using my Copic Sketch markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I fussy cut the hearts because I knew I wanted them to be in the basket on the front of the bike. 

Next, I die cut nesting hearts with the Lacy Hearts Stackables and Outside In Heart Stackables. I used white paper, so I inked the inside heart with my Distress Oxide ink in Seedless Preserves. I also cut two Fancy Wavy Banners with the sentiment "Congratulations" on one of them and inked the other with Seedless Preserves. 

I used my Large Stitched Rectangle dies to cut a 5 ½ x 4 ¼ background. I inked it using a cloudy border stencil and my Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. I used some patterned paper to create a border behind my background and then added it all to my card base. 

Finally, I mounted my stamped and die cut images to my background using 3D Foam Squares and Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive.

I'd love to see anything you make with these products! Happy cardmaking my friends!

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…

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 …

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&#…
