Colorful Blooms

Hi everyone and welcome to the last day of 2016. Vera here today. Time to say good bye to 2016. What you've got plan to celebrate this new year's eve? Mine, most likely would be spent quietly at home. Hubby and I prefer to stay at home and avoid driving on new year's eve. Better to end 2016 and start 2017 safely. We probably rent movies and make it a movie night.

I thought for today, it's only appropriate to close the year with my favorite kind of card. Flowery birthday card. I probably should have done new year's card, but I like to make card that I will actually send and I never really send out new year's card, except maybe for Chinese New year, since growing up, this is the new year that our family celebrate.




I just love  this beautiful Concord & 9th Hello Lovely set. For my card, I stamped the flowers a few times to fill out the card panel. Followed with heat embossing them with WOW metallic silver embossing powder and then colored them with Copic.






For the sentiment, I die cut the word birthday from the card panel using MFT Die-namics Brushstroke Birthday Greeting. To make it popped a bit from the background, I die cut the word three times and simply glued them together to create thick layer. The word happy is from MFT Label Maker Love Stamp set.

Well, peeps, that's all from me today. Let's end 2016 with a prayer of thanks for all the blessings that 2016 have brought and my wish for you is that may 2017 brings you good luck, good health and many happy blessings. Happy New Year everyone!!

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&#…
