Guest DT Sunday with Tessa Wise

Hello! It's Tessa Wise back to share a card I made with my new goodies from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store! I love the Solstice 6x6 paper pad by Pink Paislee- the patterned papers are so pretty and it just has that fall feel to it without being so themed. I paired it with the Dreams stamp by Neat and Tangled along with the banner dies and twine by Lawn Fawn:
3 I started with a piece of the patterned paper and cut it to fit my card front. I splattered it with gold mist and let it dry. I diecut the banner out of vellum and stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Staz On ink. I stamped it again onto some pink patterned paper and cut out around it. I added it to the banner using foam adhesive. I wanted the sentiment to stand out a little more so I cut out another piece of vellum to add underneath the banner. I cut it in a shape that kind of looked like a watercolor blob :) I wanted it to look like there was white watercolor behind it. To tell you the truth, I tried many times to actually watercolor the vellum but vellum and watercolor don't seem to mix well!
I adhered the vellum blog onto my card front and then added my banner over the top of it. I used the Kool Tac Clear Foam Adhesive strategically so you wouldn't see them through the vellum. I added the twine last, tying it to the left side. I curled the ends a bit as well by wrapping it around a pencil overnight.
I'm so happy I had the chance to guest design for my favorite online store! Thanks for having me!!


  1. wow! just wonderful!!! LOOOOOVE the splatters and papers and of course, the vellum! :)

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
