Guest Designer Sunday with Veronica Zalis

Hello and good morning!
Today we would like to introduce to you our January Guest Designer, Veronica Zalis! This is one talented, inspirational and amazing crafter!!! We couldn't be more excited! :)

Let's dive in!


Hello! I am happily married and the Mother of two little boys. I have been a card maker since 2003 after being invited to a neighborhood card swap. I love all things floral, and vintage chic themes are my favorite! I live deep in the woods of Arkansas, and spend a lot of my time enjoying the birds and squirrels that gather at my feeder. I am so happy to be joining Butterfly Reflections Ink as the January Guest Designer!

 Good Morning! I was thrilled when Vanessa Middleton owner of Butterfly Reflections Ink asked me to be the January Guest Designer! Today I am showcasing Honey Bee Stamps.  Here is the card I created:

I used the adorable Honey Bee Stamps set Sweet As Honey. I colored the flowers and bees using Copic markers. I stamped the lid on paper from the My Minds Eye Your Story collection. And used the following MFT Die-namics  Stitched Circle Scallops, large rectangle scalloped frame and stitched rectangle from Blueprints 20. I heat embossed the honeycomb and string on the jar lid using gold embossing powder.

I am thrilled with the way my card turned out! Thank you for stopping by and be sure to visit Butterfly Reflections Ink to see her fabulous selection of stamps, dies, and everything else you need to create! 

Have a wonderful day!

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
