Pretty in Pink and Gold

Hello friends!  Lisa here, and I am so sad that this is my last post as a Butterfly Inker, but so very thankful for having the chance to have been a part of the first Design Team here! yay!  Also can't wait to see who is on the new team and the fabulous work they will be creating!!! 

With that said I am so happy to share my last layout, and it is totally girly.  I love that my little Maddie is all girl, dresses and pink everything, so this layout is perfect for her..

 (and here is an angled look so you can see the shiny gold, oooohhhhh..... ahhhhhh!)

Supplies Used:
Market Street Ashbury Heights 6 x 6 Paper Pad by MME
Market Street Nob Hill Foiled Mix Bag
Market Street Ashbury Heights Chipboard Buttons
Market Street Ashbury Heights Deco Brads
Market Street Ashbury Heights Enamel Dots

I started my layout by first adding water paint in pink and gold as my background.  I then layered the pink patterned paper, gold lace paper, and doily.  I add my photo, and finished with embellishments.  This was a fairly quick layout to put together, but all of that gold and pink just screamed yum to me!

  • When using rub-ons don't be afraid to lay it over pattered papers or photos as I have done with the word cute here.
  • Running smaller embellishments through a xyron can always save you time.

Thanks for stopping by and a huge thank you to Vanessa for having me on her team!

Happy Crafting!

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
