Check out a little bit about her below and then you'll see her super sweet and cute valentine!! 

____________________________________________________

Hello! 
My name is Chari and I love to create fun bright happy designs.  I am married to my husband of almost 5 years Matt, and we live in the mountains of North Carolina with our little dog Penny.  She is a bit of a diva and an instagram star as well. :)  I am an architect, so during the day I design buildings, so it's my free time when I get crafty. I have always had an interest in stamping from a young age but it never took off until about 5 years ago when I discovered Lawn Fawn stamps which were just my style. That was when I started my blog and things just developed from there.  Now I am part of the most amazing design team at Lawn Fawn, I have had cards published in a handful of publications and I have taught a couple lessons for popular card classes as well.  I am super excited to be sharing creations with you this month as a guest designer here at Butterfly Reflections Ink! 

I got to meet Vanessa and her Butterfly Reflections crew last month at CHA. What a fun bunch of girls, and super sweet too.  So I was happy to accept the invitation to be a guest on the blog for February.  I do play with other companies stamps from time to time but most of my stash is of course Lawn Fawn so that is what I used mostly for today's card.  I even threw in some of the new goodies that I know you all just can't wait to get your hands on!  And seeing as today is Valentine's Day, I of course made a valentine for you!


I started by cutting a piece of the "Lynette" Perfectly Plaid 12x12 paper with the largest Stitched Rectangle Stackable die, this die is A2 size and covers the front of a card perfectly.  Using the colors in the the pattern paper as my inspiration I then cut a Stitched Heart from the new Guava cardstock from Lawn Fawn and a Scalloped Rectangle from the new Chili Pepper cardstock. I used the coordinating size of Stitched Rectangle Stackable die to cut a piece of Neenah Natural White cardstock to layer over the scalloped rectangle. 


I used the Hearts Deco Tape runner to add hearts on my cream rectangle for a little more interest. I stamped out and colored my favorite nerd birds from Lawn Fawn's Science of Love set. I colored them with copic markers in colors that coordinated with my papers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. For my sentiment I cut some new Lawn Fawn Mermaid cardstock with one of the new Everyday Sentiment Banner dies and stamped it with Hippo ink. After getting everything assembled I finished off with some Doodlebug Love Matte Sprinkles and Frosted Lace stickles around the heart. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today.  Have a Happy Valentine's Day.  Treat yourself to some craft goodies and creative time.

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…

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 …

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&#…
