transparency sheets on cards

Hello again!
It's Samantha here to share another card to chase away any Monday blues you may be feeling! 

I decided to use one of the Studio Calico Transparency Sheets as part of my card base! 
I LOVE white space on a card, but sometimes I want just a little bit something extra, too! The transparency sheets are the answer, people!!

So here's my card:

The transparency is attached to a white card base, and then popped up!
so FUN! And it adds a little extra wilderness scene for my prancing unicron! 
And oh, that's from the Paper Smooches Spectrum set!! A set that ANYONE who grew up in the 80's should have! lol!! 

i used some papers (and a strip of vellum!) from the Echo Park Hello Again 6x6 pad - LOOOOOVE that collection! The colors are incredible! And the patterns are SO trendy!

Speaking of trendy, did you see the cluster of wood buttons and stickers? Those are from the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer collection! you can use the circle inserts by themselves, or inside the wood buttons!!! That's like two times the amound of embellishments in one package!

And then I added a few enamel hearts to the unicorn and cluster corner, and that's the end!
What do you think?

What's your favorite product in the store right now? 
I'm totally eyeing the Simple Stories DIY paper collection - swoon!! LOVE the bold colors!!


  1. Way to rock it Sam! This is adorable!

  2. This is too cute! Love the wooden buttons!!!

  3. This is awesome! I love that unicorn set (yes, child of the 80's! lol) and the Hello Again paper is one of my faves right now, too... to look at of course. :P haha

  4. Cute! I do love this stamp set! ;)

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
