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 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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
