Quick, easy, and cute lunch notes...

Hello my crafty friends! This is Kristy and I'm here today to show you a quick and easy project. School is starting in just a couple of weeks and my little one will be starting FULL day kindergarten!!! I thought it would be fun to make up a pile of cute little notes to have ready to stick in her lunchbox everyday! Here are the items I used:
Lawn Fawn Ink-Juice Box
Lawn Fawn Ink-Wild Rose
Lawn Fawn Ink-Peacock
Lawn Fawn Ink- Celery
VersaFine Black Ink
Post it tape
Waffle Flower Doily Circle Stamp Set

I started by cutting pieces of cardstock to 4x4, then I stamped the banner towards the middle/bottom of each card, and stamped one onto a piece of post it tape.

I cut out the banner on the post it tape and used this as a mask. Then I placed it on top of the banners on each 4x4 card, and stamped the large doily over top of the mask.
I peeled off the mask and then stamped the "Smile" and sentiment onto each card.
I also used the little dot stamp to add a little something to the cards. Then I decided to use a medium sized marker and add a frame around each card.
I've already written some notes on the back of these and am ready to add them to her lunchbox! These literally came together in minutes, and I plan to use some of my other cute stamp sets I bought in the BRI shop to make some more! Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you pop on over to the shop before these goodies are gone! ;) -Kristy

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 will work the same.  It&#…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …
