Harvest Greetings: A Newbie Post

Hey there!  Ashley Harris here!  Super excited to be here with you for my first Design Team post at Butterfly Reflections.  I try to be conservative with my exclamations, but it may be hard being on this team.  To be a part of such a great team is exclamation worthy for sure.

My first card is a fall card.  It is hard to imagine fall coming as it is still reaching 108 degree temperatures here in AZ.  Thankfully there are cute stamps that put you in the mood.  That and a fan turned on full blast in your crafting space.  

Today's card features the Sunny Studio Stamps Fall Kiddos stamp set.  I love this stamp set so much!

To make this card I took a 4 x 5 1/4 inch panel of white cardstock and masked it off and went to town with my Distress Oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn.  I adhered the panel to an A2 card base.  I then stamped these super cute Fall Kiddos in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then used my Copics to color them in.  I then cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I stamped the wind and then adhered the cute images to the panel with foam adhesive.  I stamped the sentiment on a word strip and adhered it to the card.  I adhered the leaves to the wind and sentiment with foam adhesive.  to finish the card I added some shimmer with my fave Wink of Stella in clear.  Finished the cheeks off with a Signo Uniball white gel pen. LOVE!  

Here is a close up where you can see the hint of shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by and I'm looking forward to hanging out with you some more!  No off you go to create magic!

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
