Say HELLO to the new Design Team!

Hi, all. Excited to announce the new Design Team for the next term, October through December! As with the past DT calls, I had a lot of great applicants and appreciate every one of you taking the time to apply and for the enthusiasm. Choosing is always very difficult and not my favorite part, but I have to do it!
My first lovely lady is a past Guest Designer for the shop and I just lurve her! Please welcome, Tenia Nelson! Tenia is a 30 something wife, momma, doggie momma, jazz pianist, music teacher, soccer player and paper crafter that lives in the 5280 (Denver, CO)! Tenia's got a great, unique style and I love her use of colors!
Up next is Jess Moyer! Jess is a 26 year old crafter and I teaches kindergarten. She makes cards and gifts for family and friends and also contributes to charity card campaigns. Outside of teaching and crafting, she enjoys being active with activities like indoor rock climbing. Go, girl! hehe
Cheri Greene is a friend I met on YouTube several years ago. She is a full time career girl, wife, step mommy and momma to 3 fur babies. She loves scrapbooking and Project Life has been her passion for the last few years. I am SOOO glad that Cheri applied this term because she absolutely LOVES Halloween, going all out decorating her home and making many Halloween projects!
Last and certainly not least is Piali Biswas! She's a married, SAHM from NJ with two girls that keep her busy. She's a stamp lover/collector (much like myself! HAHA). Piali makes some STUNNER cards and I was thrilled to see she decided to apply for my DT.
So those are the girls!!! I can't wait to see what they create! Make sure to say hi and check the blog daily to see their projects. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your continued support. It means the world to me! Vanessa

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
