distress ink technique with my head in the clouds

Hi there!
It's Samantha here, and I'm SUPER excited to share this card with you all today!

Did you know that Butterfly Reflections Ink has THEIR OWN STAMPS now?! Oh yeah!
Have you seen them? They're designed by Shanna Noel, and they're SO COOL!!

I used both sets (Head in the Clouds and Over the Rainbow) for my card today!

Along with some enamel dots (swoon - i'm addicted to enamel dots...and the Butterfly Reflections Ink store has the cure! ... MORE enamel dots! lol!)
Ok, here's my card:

I used a bunch of shades of blues/teals distress inks, stamped the solid cloud image onto some Tim Holtz watercolor paper, and the spritzed it with my mister! I LOVE the bleed look! I also did the same with the tiny heart image, for some pops of red! :)

Then I put a vellum banner over top and heat embossed in white the sentiment and open cloud with the cutest smiley face ever! :)
That panel was popped up over some glittery gold tape to go with the gold heart enamel dots!
Oh, and that button - it's from the SUPER awesome Dear Lizzy Daydreamer collection! I LOVE wooden buttons!

So that's it!
Are you ready to shop?
I sure hope so!

Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time!

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
