Concord & 9th

Howdy Friends!! It is Dana here today with a fun set of cards using the Concord & 9th To The Point Turnabout Stamp Set.

I started my first card by using the To The Point Stamp Set. This turnabout stamp is a little different than other turnabouts. It's a split turnabout with succulents/cactus on one half and pots on the other side. So you use two colors each time you turn (up to 8 colors) to create your pots and cactus. This allows you to keep your cactus green but add color to your pots. I only used four I repeated my greens twice and my pot colors twice. I took a picture of each step to show you how it comes together...I am sorry about the shadows on my pictures, but I was stamping at night.

You will notice that there is an empty spot in the center of the design. You can add an included sentiment there, or fill it in with the individual images in the stamp set (that is what I did). Next, I cut down my card panel and added a Vellum rectangle to the center of my panel. I then used the Concord & 9th To The Point Dies to die cut my cactus image and "Howdy" sentiment for my card front. I attached my card panel to an aqua cardstock mat before attaching it to my A2 card base.

For my second card, I only used the To The Point Dies. I once again die cut my cactus and "Howdy" sentiment and attached it to my card front with Foam Adhesive. I layered my card panel onto my cardstock mats and attached it to an A2 card base. I love these dies...they make a quick card- but it is so cute and trendy!!

Make sure and stop by the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store and check out the selection of Concord & 9th Products
Happy Friday and Enjoy your weekend!

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 …
