Happy Haunting

 Hey there, Everyone! It's Allison, and I'm super happy to be back on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog! Today, I am sharing this fun Halloween slimline card featuring a mix of products, all of which you can find at the online shop.

It has been awhile since I've played with my Nuvo shimmer powders, so that's where I started this project. I took a panel of watercolor paper, sprinkled some shimmer powders in different shades of blues and grays, and spritzed it with water. I added more powder and spritzed more water until I was happy with the results. 

While my watercolor panel was drying, I pulled out my Slimline Rooftops Border Die from Trinity Stamps and used it to cut both black and white paper. I left the windows intact on the white paper and adhered that die cut to the back of the black die cut. I adhered the rooftop border to the panel and then adhered the panel to a white card base measuring 8.75" x 3.75". I also cut duplicates of a couple of the rooftops and popped those up on some foam tape to create dimension. I added some whispy black clouds to the sky using the Cloud Cover Die-namics from MFT. 

Finally, I stamped a mix of images from some Mama Elephant Halloween-themed little agenda sets and colored them with Copic markers. I used the following agenda sets: Little Witch,   Little Boo,  and Little Mummy. I popped those up on foam tape. I stamped the sentiment onto one of the rooftops with Versamark ink and white heat embossed it. The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Boos stamp set from MFT. This set has just about every Halloween sentiment you would need!

Thanks so much for joining me on the BRI blog today. Make sure to check out all of the goodies in the online shop!

Wishing you a crafty day,

Allison Frazier

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

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
