Autumn is calling!

Hi Everyone, it's Jane with another fall card for you today!  This card was made using the new Hello Bluebird stamps and dies which are available at Butterfly Reflections Ink.

The images from Hello Bluebird are so adorable and can be mixed and matched to create cute fall scenes.  I absolutely love the new (and old) sets!

To start this card, I cut an A2 size of Bristol smooth cardstock.  Using an ink blending tool, I blended the following Distress Oxide inks (top to bottom): wild honey, dried marigold and antique linen.  Then using the Oak Tree Scene die, I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn woodgrain cardstock in the darkest brown to create the tree.  Then on a separate piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, I used VersaFine Clair ink in nocturne to stamp the images from Hello BlueBird stamp sets Pumpkin Time and Leaf Play.  Images were then clear heat embossed and colored using Tombow ABT markers and a water brush.  The images were then cut and glued to the ink blended card base.

Sentiment was stamped using VersaFine Clair ink in nocturne and then clear heat embossed.  I love the look of clear embossing powder on black ink!

To finish the card, I cut another piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using the Gallery Frame 2 die and ink blended it using ripe persimmon and adhered it using liquid glue.  Lastly, the card front was glued down to an A2 card base.

Hope you like this card!  Looking forward to sharing with you again next week.  Until then, have a wonderful rest of your week!

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
