perfect pearls, a stencil, and YOU

Hello there!!!
Samantha here, and today I have TWO cards to share with you today!

I just couldn't stop playing around with two things I'm currently obsessing on right now:
Perfect Pearls and Stencils

Both of which, can be found right in the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!

So let's dive right in, shall we? (a little birdie told me it's going to be a BUSY and EXCITING day on the Bufferfly Reflections blog stay tuned for that! eek!)

Both of my cards are super similar! 
I used the raindrop stencil and squished my versamark ink pad right on it!

Then I lifted up the stencil and dusted on some perfect pearls (in GOLD!) with a paint brush. Hello! 

Gorgeous background EVERYTIME! :)

Then I used the super adorable NEW release Avery Elle stamp set, Weather It, and popped up the umbrella for dimension! The patterned paper on both cards is from the My Minds Eye Mildred collection, and that's an INCREDIBLE paper pad, people! 

My second card was created the same way, with the same supplies, but I used vellum as my background and stitched it onto the card base! 

So that's it! 

What products are you crushing on right now? I tell you, gold, vellum and stencils...I can't live without them right now! :) Check out what's in the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop and get inspired!!

Thanks for stopping by!

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

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

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
