Guest Designer Sunday with Shemaine Smith

It's another brilliant Guest Designer Sunday with Shemaine Smith!! Check out below to read all about her beautiful cards that are ready to ring in the New Year!! 


Hello! It's Shemaine here returning for one last post. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families. Ours was very nice and I am truly thankful for all that we have, especially our health.
Did you hear the news!!

Did you know that throughout the end of the year, if you place a $25-$49 order, you'll be entered to win a $50 store credit? And if you place a $50+ order you'll get an entry into $100 store credit. Spend $100, you get 2 entries. That's EASY to do with the 25% off SALE right now through 12/31

This year Christmas really came fast for me and I did not get to everyone on my Christmas card list. I still hand make all our Christmas cards even tho I know how popular the photo cards have become. So I took the list of people I did not get to and made a new list...New Year's Cards!

Here's a fun one I made using My Favorite Things Toasty Greetings stamp and die set.

Additional Supplies: Anna Griffin Glitter paper, MFT Stitched Mini Scalloped Circle die, MFT Dienamics Stitched numbers, Sequin Shaker Selections Opel whisper, Misc: stars

Using glitter paper for your New Years cards is a great way to make them shimmer and sparkle. I also like to make my cards look 3 dimensional by popping stamped images off my card base like I did with the cute snowman who is in the perfect post for this sentiment.

My next card also features the Dienamics stitched letters and the Cheers Lawn Fawn sentiment.

I used the dot and star stamps from Hug in a Mug set to create a simple background. Then  layered the Stitched Mini Scallop Square over the pattern and added my sentiment.
I finished it off with ribbon and it's ready to be mailed.

I hope you all have a fantastic 2016!

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
