Please send 3-5 samples of your work to butterflyinkersDT@gmail.com. We would appreciate you sending your creations at a manageable size.  Your samples can be cards, pocket pages and/or layouts of any size.  We would also love links to your online galleries, blogs, YouTube channels, etc. Anything that will give us an idea of what your creative style and abilities are. Please include if you are currently or have been on any other Design Teams in the past.   Tell us a little about yourself in a short bio and make sure your primary email address is included so we can contact you. We want to get to know YOU!

This is a 3 month commitment starting in April and going through June with a possibility to extend if we absolutely can't live without you!  haha You must be willing to create 4-6 projects per month with at least one blog post per week.  We also ask that you be exclusive to the online shop for Design Team work. You can design for manufacturers, blogs, kit clubs, etc., but we would appreciate it if you stuck with our online shop only for the 3 month term.

What do you get in return you ask?  (Besides the amazing opportunity to work with Vanessa.)  You will get a total of $30.00 worth of product each month for free. Half will be chosen by yourself and half by Vanessa since she may have specific products she wants showcased occasionally. You will also get an awesome 25% off discount to add goodies to your monthly order! How fabulous is that?  {I hope this sounds FAIR! Please remember that I am a new shop and want to be generous.  The bigger I get, the more I can offer and things will be adjusted accordingly.}

If this sounds fantastic and like the perfect opportunity for you, please send us that email!!!   The deadline is Sunday, March 23, 2014 at midnight EST.  We will go over all the wonderful applications and choose the best fit for the shop and announce on April 1st who will be joining us!

Looking forward to seeing all these lovely projects and can't wait to get working with some great talent!

  13. I would love to apply. I have never been on a DT before so this would be a first for me. I do not have a blog, nor do I have anything on You Tube. If accepted, I would start a blog. I can just send you extra photos of my work, Please advise.

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…

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&#…

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 …
