New Design Team Introductions

Happy New Year!!! I hope you're all doing well. I have been keeping busy with the Christmas sale orders and am looking forward to being caught up at the end of the week. 

This is going to be short and sweet so let's get to it.

First up, we have Beata joining us. Beata has been playing along with our monthly mood boards and has won a couple of times. She loves coloring, paper crafts and all things handmade. Her crafty journey started a few years ago when a friend invited her to card class and she's been obsessed ever since!

Next up, we have someone joining us all the way from Germany. Julia is 35 and only begain cardmaking at the end of 2018. Say WHAT?! It always amazes me when people are relatively new and can create cards like THIS! Impressive. 

We have another international lady joining us from the Netherlands. Peggy is 35, married and mom of a 2 1/2 year old son who works as a youth care policy maker. Her husband owns a record store and she loves music, film and books which often seeps into her craft projects as seen below! hehe

Nikki, her husband and their kitties live aboard Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Florida. She's always been crafty, her mom and nana made sure of that and she started scrapbooking starting with her wedding album in 1999. See how quickly 20 years goes by?! 

Lastly we have Farhana. She's been crafting for 10 years, but started cardmaking about 5 years ago. Farhana has guested for several companies and just recently (like yesterday) also joined the Newton's Nook  DT. She loves all things rainbow (as do I) and I just adore this butterfly creation!

We also have someone amazing joining us for a special post using the mood board once a month. Sara is an incredible colorer and cardmaker from Italy. Her wrok is truly awww-inspiring and I've been a HUGE fan for a while. I am THRILLED she's making time to join us!

I'm sure the new DT members will be bringing us lots of fabulous proejects and inspiration! Be sure to check the shop for lots of new goodies arriving soon!!!

Stay safe, 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 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
