Halloween Tag Mini

I decided to make little gifts for my parents, my in-laws and one of my friends that came to our annual Halloween House last year. I wanted to make a small decoration for their homes. Neither my in-laws nor my friend decorate for Halloween so I didn't want to send over pics in a big ole Halloween Frame-that's more my style! :) But I thought it would be fun for them to have a keepsake from the party. This is the mini I made for my in-laws.
I completely *adore* the Frankie and Friends by Simple Stories decorative brads!!! This cute ghost on the front cover is so fun!
I tried to make one side for photo(s) and the other for decoration. I really liked the size of the Webster's Pages Ocean Melody sticker letters in coral for this small project and the color really popped against the lime green color in the Witches Brew collection.

The Studio Calico Brighton Pier Silver Star rub ons added the perfect balance for the space below this die cut frame. I also sprinkled some of the Owloween Stew Enamel Stars on this page too for added interest. 

I used quite a bit of the die cuts from the Witches Brew Pea Pod Die Cuts, they are perfect for projects like this where I didn't want it to get too bulky. 

These die cuts also really took up real estate in this mini tag album which was perfect to still showcase the cute papers in this collection! I can't get enough of the Halloween Wood Veneers!! To finish up the mini tag album I glued some Black Glitter Beanboard Alphas and the mini was complete!!

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

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

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
