Thank You

Hi crafty friends, Julianne here sharing a HUGE thank you card that I made for Vanessa. I have had so much fun designing for Butterfly Reflections, Ink these passed couple months and I am truly blessed to have had this opportunity. I hope that you found inspiration in my posts over the past couple months from not only me but the other amazing design team members. For my card today I used Altenew Hope Stamp Set and the Altenew Build-a-Flower: Chrysanthemum Stamp, I have never used a layering stamp set before but I loved the results. 

If you haven't tried these stamps before from any company, I would definitely say try. The results are just beautiful and not having to color was AMAZING! I used a bunch of different Catherine Pooler Inks for my card, a list is below:
I originally was just going to do a bunch of yellow flowers but I decided I wanted a rainbow of colors, so for both flowers I did one of each color. I have to say the purple and yellow combinations were my favorite! Once I had all the flowers and leaves stamped I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. I laid out all the different flowers on my card base to figure out placement before adhering with liquid adhesive. For this card since the flower images are big I went with a 5 x 7 card base, my leaves and flowers do go over the edge but that doesn't bother me (you could always cut them along the edge in order to fit into an envelope). I'm hoping she will display this in the store so I really like the effect of all the leaves and flowers expanding passed the card. 
I wanted to use a big bold sentiment to show Vanessa just how amazing she is, so I went with the Catherine Pooler Wonderful Sentiment Die die cut in black glitter cardstock so that it would stand out. Finally adding a sentiment above it and black sequins around the card to finish it all off. 
Thank you all so much for stopping by each week to check out my cards, I am truly grateful not only to Vanessa but for all of you and your support. I hope you have found inspiration from my cards and don't forget to tag me on IG @juliannefoyil so I can see what you all create, Happy Crafting!

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
