Alligator Birthday Card

Hi there, friends! It's Rebekah here to day to share with you this cute little card using the Reverse Confetti Later Alligator stamp set!


I automatically think this set would lean more towards a boy's card but I wanted to stretch it a bit and use the small bow and birthday cake stamps to make it a card more suitable for a girl!

This seems to be a 'go-to' card design for me lately when I have stamp set I want to use but am not sure what to do for a design. Its also perfect for doing major coloring therapy!


All I did was stamp the alligator randomly on a white card panel and color each one with Copic markers. I wanted the alligators to really pop so I added a touch of a cool gray outline around each one. I filled in between with the bow stamp and colored them pink.

I then cut the circles from the Lacy Scllope Circle Dies  and the Pop Up Circle Dies from Reverse Confetti. In the smaller circle I stamped the birthday cake stamp on top of each other masking the candle on the cakes on the bottom of the stack.

I mounted the stamped and colored circle on top if the larger scalloped circle and added to my card panel with foam tape.

For the sentiment I simply stamped it using Versa Fine Black Ink onto white cardstock and cut it into a banner shape and attached it to the bottom of the circles.

I added a little Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in the Clear Overlay on the cakes and the bows for a little sparkle!

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…

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&#…

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 …
