Introducing Our Newest DT Members!

Hi, everyone! Today was a good day. (Well, yesterday by the time you're reading this.) I've been walking for the 40 Miles in May Challenge for the American Cancer Society so my husband and I got a 2.5 mile walk in putting me over the halfway point. We came home and made breakfast then headed to my parents' for the afternoon. My parents have been fully vaccinated as have my husband and I which has given me some relief in being able to see them without so much worry. My oldest son stopped by and we enjoyed the afternoon on the deck. I hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day, whether seeing your moms or your kids or if that wasn't possible, I hope you were able to find happiness in some way.

Huge thanks to the amazing cardmakers we added to our team last term. They were so talented and a pleasure to have join us. Today I'm here to introduce you to our new Design Team for the late Spring and Summer term. This term we have all international peeps joining us! Let's get right to it.

Leontine is a first grade teacher from the Netherlands. Her adorable creations and bright photos really drew me in.

Peter is also from the Netherlands where he lives with his husband and dog, Churro who they adopted from Spain. How cute of a name is that?! Much like Peter's adorable scene cards.

Veronica is joining us from Italy and shares her passion for this hobby with her mom who introduced her to cardmaking.  I love that! <3

Laura lives in Italy and was born in Como, home of the most beautiful lake in the world. (I would love to visit.) In addition to cardmaking, she also enjoys amigurumi, making paper flowers and sewing.

Annemarijn lives in Amsterdam with her boyfriend and two cute cats. She's 26 which makes me so happy that some younger stampers are in the house! ;) She just discovered stamping and cardmaking about a year and a half ago and now she's addicted to cute stamps. That's how it goes, isn't it?! haha

Thanks for stopping by and meeting our new team! I hope you enjoy their creations over the next few months. I'm sure they'll be bringing us lots of cuteness. 

Enjoy your day!

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
