Open DT Call for the Fall/Early Winter Term

Hi, everyone! I hope you've all been enjoying the summer. As many of you know, our family suffered a tragic loss when my brother (age 32) passed away at the end of June. His funeral services were just after the 4th of July and we buried his ashes a week ago. It's been a roller coaster and when I stop to think about him, I still can't believe he's gone. Thanks to everyone who has been thinking about me and my family. Your thoughts and prayers mean a lot to us. <3 We've been keeping fairly busy which helps me not think *too* much. We did more traveling this summer than we ever have. We took a trip to Virginia at the end of June and just went to visit my uncle in New Jersey this past weekend. We have a day trip to a waterpark planned this week and a few days of "camping" next week. Then we'll be just DAYS away from going back to school. The weather has cooled in NH and dare I say I think I've seen a few leaves changing already. Fall is my absolute favorite so I don't mind though it would be nice for it to get back into the 80's to hit those waterslides Thursday! haha

The next open call begins TODAY! Technically I was supposed to post this on Sunday, but here I am... two days late. Le sigh. Get it together, Vanessa!!! haha

Please send us 3-5 samples of your most recent creations to Your samples can be cards, scrapbook layouts or whatever you like to create. If you've applied for the team before, PLEASE make sure you're sending NEW artwork. We'd also like links to your online galleries, blogs, YouTube channels, etc., anything that will give us an idea of what your creative style and abilities are. Please include if you are currently or have been on any other Design Teams in the past and tell us a little about yourself in a short bio.

This is a 4 month commitment starting in September and going through December. You must be willing to create 4 projects per month with one blog post per week. Sometimes an additional project will be asked for and appreciated. We do ask that you be exclusive to the online shop for Design Team work. You can design for manufacturers, blogs, kit clubs, etc., but we would appreciate it if you stuck with our online shop only for the 4 month term. We are always trying to expand and gain new customers so sharing links to the shop is required at a minimum of 3 times a week via various social media outlets. This is a BIG part of the DT's job and we appreciate you helping us get the word out. You can post links to your own blog posts, projects shared on FB/IG, a teammates fabulous creation, your favorite current products, sales, etc. There is ALWAYS something to share and again, a main part of the "job".

In return for your creations and promotion, you will get $30.00 worth of FREE product of your choice each month. You will also get a 25% discount to use as much as you'd like for your term. The shop is FULL of fabulous products with more coming in regularly and you'll be able to get yourself some at a generous discount. WOOT!

If you love fall and holiday crafting, this is definitely the perfect term for you!!! Please send us your application by August 27, 2017. We will go over all of the applications and choose the best fit for the shop shortly after. Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing all of your creations and adding more members to our talented team. 


  1. Ah was all excited but I already am on 2 other DT's that requires me to share their work and shops. Commenting to send you and your family my deepest sympathies on the loss of your brother. May he R.I.P

  2. Hello. What a great opportunity. Where do we send our information? Thank you

  3. I can't believe this has come around so fast - where does the time go? I have thrown in :)

  4. How long of a history should one's blog have to be a successful applicant? I'm planning to start one and would like some goals to work toward. That would be helpful information, if you don't mind giving some tips.

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
