Guest Designer Sunday with Carisa!

Hi everyone! Carisa here again for my last post as Butterfly Reflections, Ink. October Guest Designer! I guess you can say I am in full fledge holiday mode. Bring on the snow, I AM READY! Yes, I am already listening to Christmas music any excuse and making Christmas cards is the perfect excuse in my book. Today, I am using the Holiday Cheer stamp set from WPlus9's latest release. As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to have it. I have become slightly addicted to open line art images paired with solid stamped images and this set has both­ it was definitely coming home to me! I loved it so much as soon as I started stamping that I have not one, not two, but THREE cards for you today. Plus, a process video I hope you will enjoy seeing how fast and simple these cards are to make. I will be making a few more using this technique with a lot of different colors to have on hand to mail out this season. 

Here is another card using the same concept except rather than having the solid stamp have all the colorful fun,  I stamped the solid images in a light grey ink and added the color to the open line art stamps. I love the two different styles of hats and mittens in this stamp set as well. You could even take those open images and color them with your markers or watercolors. So many possibilities with this stamp set. It is so versatile, I know I will be making a few other style cards before I put this stamp set away!

I love the colors on this one! They are just so bright, cheerful and not your typical holiday colors which makes it a lot of fun. I wish you could see the wink of stella on this one, too. I have a video for you today. I hope you will hop on over to my YouTube channel or you can watch below:

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
