Pumpkin Spice Season!!

Hello, friends and welcome!!  It's Laurie here making a guest appearance on the blog today!  Always thrilled when I am able to help out here:)!

My latest order from Vanessa included some fall themed goodies which I couldn't wait to play with.  Fall is definitely here in my part of the world. It's quite beautiful right now but the upcoming forecast sounds more like winter which just downright sucks. But you're not here to listen to me complain about the seasons, so let's have a look at the card I created!


I just had to get the new Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set along with its co-ordinating dies!  I simply adore this line of stamps from Newton's Nook!  I think they have 3 different sets featuring this girl! I coloured everything up with Copic markers and used the dies to cut each image out.

For the background, I used the Falling Leaves Stencil, also from Newton's Nook, along with some Translucent Embossing paste. After the paste was dry, I blended some Broken China Distress Oxide Ink over top.  I admit, not the most Fall background but I love the subtle look of the leaves. I was thinking about using a yellow, orange or even brown ink but didn't want it to clash with the girl :)


I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white cardstock and adhered it with foam adhesive. In fact, everything except the orange pumpkin is popped up!  I love me some dimension!  I added a few highlights with a white gel pen and some sparkle to the pink areas and called this card done!


I hope you enjoyed today's project as much as I enjoyed making it!  Thanks so much for stopping by and if you have a moment, I encourage you to check out the amazing line of products in the BRI shop!

Have a great day!!

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 …
