Completely Wild About You

Hey friends, it's Christy here with a super cute card featuring a brand new line in the BRI shop: Reverse Confetti! I fell in love with these sweet giraffe's from Lift Me Up and just had to make a card with them as soon as I got them in my hands!

These cuties are completely customizable! The polkadots make them so fun and festive and you can color them to match your patterned paper, as I did here, or you can color them more realistically if you prefer. I vote for fun! ;) This Simple Stories Posh 6x6 is sadly out of stock at the moment, but Vanessa carries so many gorgeous paper pads in her shop that you're sure to find one or two (or five!) that you can't live without. I know I always do.

I colored my images with Copics and used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die and Grassy Border die to create a focal panel for them to stand on and borrowed a sentiment from WPlus9's Party Animal stamped in Lawn Fawn Deep Sea ink. I used a sketch I found on Pinterest for my card layout and incorporated a little navy stripe into the pastel mix with one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders dies.

I also did some fun stamping on the inside of the card using some of these images and a sentiment from Wplus9's Happy Mail stamped with Lawn Fawn's Wild Rose ink, and you can check that out in the video if you'd like. I hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cuteness overload!! Love the layers, color combo, and the coloring.

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
