Welcome to my new DT!

Well, this is a tad bit late, but better late than never, right? That's what my mom always said anyways! I hope the girls realize this has nothing to do with how awesome they are or how excited I am to have them. This month has just been crazy busy, starting with going on a week long vacation from the end of June through July 6th, orders from while I was away, a trip to the lake for my nana's 90th birthday, work, trying to keep the kids from killing each other (ughhh), hounding my oldest to get a job (haha), house stuff and so on. I'm sure you ALL know how it goes! This might be a little lengthy because I'm introducing everyone in one post, but please welcome...

Danielle Pandeline! Danielle lives in sunny Florida with her hubby and fur babies. She has a Bachelor's degree in photography which turned her on to scrapbooking. Danielle's also a super cute card maker and has served on the Sweet Stamp Shop and Newton's Nook Design Teams as well as hosting crops and shopping trips for a group of crafters where she lives. How fun is that?!

Nicole Guincho! Nicole is also from Florida, a wife and a mom to a 2 year old who also works full time. Nicole and I met through YouTube and became friendly, sending each other RAK's and I'd always make sure to watch her videos to see her amazing projects. She really makes the prettiest cards, but she's also a scrapbooker and does cute mini albums, too. Recently Nicole has had cards be pins of the day for Lawn Fawn on Pinterest! How cool is that?

Joann Lopez! I'm not sure what it was exactly, but reading Joann's application, I just instantly felt a connection to her. Maybe it's because she's also a stay-at-home mom to a 3 year old boy and 7 month old baby girl and my kids are about the same age distance apart and I SO know what it's like. Joann's cards were so beautiful and I'm happy to say I'm giving her her first Design Team experience. WHOOT!!!

Chitra Nair! Chitra's cards are absolutely STUNNING! Her use of color is amazing and I am in awe that she just started card marking in late 2012. I mean really? Way to make the rest of us look bad. :P hahaha She is on The Greeting Farm DT and has been on a few others as well. I don't know Chitra as I do the other ladies so I'm hoping we get to know each other better through her being here!

Jessica Pascarella!!! Jessica lives in Texas with her hubby and 3 children ages 8, 6 and 4. She likes to read and is currently writing her first novel. WHAT?! Go, girl!!! hehe Jessica is also on the Trendy Twine DT and the Neat and Tangled challenge blog called Little Tangles. She has served on many other DT's and challenge blogs as well and was recently a contestant in Gallery Idol. Congratulations on that, that's such an achievement!

So that's everyone!!! Again, I'm sorry for my delay in getting this up. I'm truly honored to have you all on my Design Team and also very thankful to everyone who took the time to apply! I hope you enjoyed seeing some of their submissions and be sure to follow the blog and leave them some love. You'll also be seeing some of the original DT in August since Shawna will be moving from Hawaii to Washington state by way of the east coast to visit her family. The girls agreed to fill in when needed because they're amazingly awesome, kind and helpful. I just adore them!!! <3

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
