'Hello' Fancy Pants...

Hello, Butterfly Reflection, Ink friends! Today is an awesome day! First of all, I have a fun project to share with you! But most of all...today is Release Day for the new Lawn Fawn products everyone is drooling over! And guess what? They are available NOW in the BRI store! Check out the amazing selection!

So on to my project...

Let me confess... I am falling in love with the premade embellishments for cards/layouts! I have been turning to them lately when I need to make a card in a flash! Have you seen those latest card challenges, 10 minutes or less? I would never had been able to complete this challenge if I had to create every piece by hand! But these premade pieces make it doable!

Here is the card I created with the premade embellishments matching the Fancy Pant's Burlap & Bouquets Collection:


To make the card stand out, I decided to create a shaped card versus a regular card. The front is covered with 2 different patterned paper. I love the simple 'HELLO' sentiment, but decided to add 'my friend' by stamping it below the embellishment. The feathers are a wonderful addition! I love how the large one hangs over the top of the card. The card needed a little more texture, so I added a couple enamel dots on the top corner of the card!

There are many things I love about Butterfly Reflections, Ink! One thing is that they carry a variety of products from a single paper collection. Making it so easy to shop in one location!

Check out the supplies I used available in the BRI store:


Fancy Pants - Burlap & Bouquets Paper Pad and Ephemera
Avery Elle -  Red & Goldie Clear Stamp Set
My Mind's Eye - Market Street Enamel Dots

Thanks for stopping by! See you the 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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …

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 will work the same.  It&#…
