Warm Wishes, New Friends!

Hello! Rebekah here with my first post to the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog!

I live in Western Pennsylvania and we have been blessed with a mild winter so far.  Although, I am sure cold winds and lots of snow are just around the corner. I created this card with that in mind.



The image on this card is by Little Darlings called Winter-Cuppa. I just love it! Not only is that little girl and polar bear absolutely adorable but the image is huge! It just about fills up an entire A2 card. I used  Stitched Cloud Edge Dies above the image which I think adds a nice decorative touch.

I used Blueprints 29 by My Favorite Things and Blueprints 25 also by My Favorite Things to create the layered mats on this card. These die sets are by far my most used items in my crafting stash! I use them on almost every card.



But of course I could not leave it at that!  I also used the  Flicker Heart to add even more detail behind the image, which is colored with copic markers, by the way. The die is long rather then wide so I had to re position the die and run it threw my die cutter about 4 times in order to cover the entire blue piece of cardstock.



For the sentiment I used  Paper Smooches Warm Wishes Die. I die cut white craft foam and mounted the card stock to it using Multi Matte Medium  and  then curved it around the polar bear. I was surprised how easy it was to curve this otherwise straight sentiment!

I also had to add Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White to the snowflakes! Love the added detail and slight shine they add to this card!

I am thrilled to be part of this team and even more thrilled to get the chance to show all of you the products available here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!

I post to My Instagram Account a number of times a week and sometimes even a number of times a day! I also have blog and have started making a video  every now and then! You can check that out here - Confessions of an Over-Inker. I have a haul video up now that has all the products I will be working with this month from Butterfly Reflections Ink. I would love to get to know all of you a little better so please drop by and say hi!!

Hugs,
Rebekah

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&#…
