Boo! Happy Spooky Halloween!


Hi crafty friends!  It's Amanda Fitterer here with my first post as a Design Team member for Butterfly Reflections Ink!  I'm super excited to share this Halloween card with you!  It has a flap that you can open to reveal a little cute monster!  It's also a shaker card!

I am using LOTS of goodies from Butterfly Reflections Ink to make this interactive card!  

First, I'm going to grab a card base and use the Studio Katia Spider Web Stencil to create a fun galaxy background with 2 spider webs!  I'm blending Twisted Citron, Dusty Concord, and Black Soot Distress Inks and Oxides.  

I spritzed my background with some water and now I'm going to use some Glossy Accents to create dimension on my spider web.

While that dries, I'm going to use the Lawn Fawn Peekaboo Backdrop die.  I'm creating 2 flaps (though I only end up using 1 in the end!) and ink blending them so they match my background.

Now, I am ready to start stamping!  I'm using the Heffy Doodle You're Weird stamp set, as well as the Taylored Expressions Pennant Parade stamp set.  I'm stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink because it's alcohol marker friendly and I'm going to use my Copics to color these cuties in!

I'm going to stamp my sentiment with Versamark Watermark and use white embossing powder to create a white sentiment on black cardstock.

With some purple and green ink pads, I'm stamping my pennants.  I'm going to cut them out with my scissors and then use a tiny 1/8" hole punch on each of them.  I'll use some baker's twine to string these little guys together to create a banner.

Now, I'm going to use Dress My Craft's Capital Alphabets Die and cut out "BOO" in white and in black cardstock.

Now, I'm ready to assemble the card!  I created a little shaker in the upper right rectangle using Studio Katia's Witches Cauldron Fusion Sequins.  I used 3D foam squares and strips to attach everything to the card base.  

Thank you so much for stopping by the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog and scrolling through my post!  I hope you feel inspired to create something awesome today!

Xoxo, Amanda

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

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 vel
