Welcome Our New Design Team Members for Fall 2020!

Happy September, everyone! I treated myself to my first Pumpkin Spice iced coffee of the season yesterday. WOOOO HOOOO! I am so excited for fall, my very FAVORITE time of the year!

First of all let me say a big THANK YOU to everyone who applied for the Design Team this term. It's always so hard to narrow it down to just 5 new members. On average, it's like picking one person per 10 applicants. For those who have never been on a Design Team, I always pick at least ONE that has never been on a team before so that isn't a requirement. My advice: KEEP TRYING!

First up, we have Lidya joining the team! She was born and raised in Indonesia and she and her husband moved to TX in 2013. She just started cardmaking 2 years ago. I saw this card on IG and it won my heart. The background is incredible and I just love that sweet scene. Ahhhh, the days of tent camping. We're spoiled now with our camper! hehe Looking forward to our lake view site at the end of the month. :) 

Tina Herbeck has been crafting for over 20 years! (So have I, but you wouldn't know it! bwahahahahaha) Tina's a part-time music teacher, wife and mom to 2 college aged kids! She's been on the Craftin' Desert Divas and Jaded Blossom DT. I just LOVE this sassy little witch!


Allison Frazier lives in Colorado with her husband and two sons who are starting school online (I'm with ya next week, girl!) I am soooo in love with this spooky little night scene. Another fabulous background.


Sophie is up next. Sophie is in her final year of med school (YOU GO, GIRL!!!) and crafts in her spare time. Fall and the holidays are her favorite time of year as well so I thought she'd fit right in. Another camping scene that won me over! Also, notice the slimline trend? I have a large variety of slimline dies in the shop if you haven't checked them out yet.


Lastly, Amanda Fitterer will be rounding out the team! Amanda is a wife, mother and avid crafter who loves all things crafty. She enjoys encouraging, inspiring and teaching others. She is on a few DT's including Heffy Doodle and this card made me incredibly HAPPY! <3 Her light and bright photos will do that to you!


So those are are new team members. These ladies will be with us through December and hopefully beyond! ;) I am so excited to have you and can't wait to see your creations!

Speaking of creations, we'd also love to see YOURS! You can join us in the FB group or play along and tag us on IG using the monthly mood board. This month's is a BEAUTY!


Thanks for coming by. Have a great day!

Vanessa

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&#…
