Hello, it's Rubeena here today with my last card as Butterfly Reflections Ink's Design Team member. I've thoroughly enjoyed being on the team, getting to know the other members and Vanessa, and enjoying all the other perks. ;-) Soon the new team will be announced, and I hope you'll all give them a warm welcome.

Today's card was really fun and easy to make. The front panel was created with the ink smooshing technique using a thin sheet of plastic. I used a few blue Distress Inks: Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch. I dried in between colors with my heat tool and then finished the look with sprays of white pigment ink, gold and shimmer sprays. The new WPlus9 Starry Background Die is AMAZING because it not only cuts out stars but also embosses some. It's smaller than size A2 so I used it on the colored piece towards the upper left area. I removed all the little stars and added the panel to a white card base with foam tape.

The giraffe from Altenew's new Baby Zoo was stamped with black pigment ink on white cardstock and then the second layer was stamped with VersaMark and heat set in gold. I fussy cut it and added it at the bottom of the card. The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock with VersaMark and heat set in gold, too. I fussy cut it and added it next to the giraffe with some gold thread behind it. I added strips of some cute gold foil washi tape underneath it.

I hope you've enjoyed all the cards I've shared with you. You can find me at A Rare Ruby Crafts for other projects. Have a great week.

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
