A Purr-fect Treat Bag

Happy Tuesday!!!  Danielle here today to get you started on your Halloween treat bags!!   These cute bags can be mass produced very easily.  I used the Cosmo Cricket  - What a treat glittery vellum bags as my treat bags.  These bags are very heavy duty and can hold a lot of candy!!!  Then I used a non holiday themed paper pack!!! 

Quick Tip: Use up your old paper pads by finding colors that go with holidays. 

This orange polka doted and the dark brown grid paper comes from the Kaiser Craft - Happy Snaps 6.5 x 6.5 pad.  Who woulda thought, right???  lol  I created a decorative edge with a punch from my stash. It's hard to see, but its a spider web. 

I wanted to match the bag with some of the paper so I tool the Stars from the Lawn Fawn - Spooktacular set and inked it up in some Versamark Ink (my favorite for embossing) and used the Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder. 

Then I colored up the cute kitty from the Lawn Fawn - Spooktacular set a fun orange color to match the paper.  I added some twine, wink of stella and the companion sentiment to a hand cut banner, popped it up on foam dots and called it a day!!!  To adhere the bag topper to the bag I just used a regular ole stapler.  

Get your hands on the same supplies at the Butterfly Reflections Ink Online Shop!!!  Be sure to tell your friends!!!

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
