Happy Easter!


Happy Easter Everyone!  I'm sharing this fun and colorful Easter card with you today using several Lawn Fawn products which can be purchased at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  My colors were inspired by the April mood board (below).  I choose to use a gradient of greens, blues, purple and coral colors for my card.  Since this card is so colorful, I decided to add in some white in order to focus most of the attention to the critters in front of the card. 

To start, I used the stitched rectangles to cut a piece of pattern paper.  Then, I cut another smaller rectangle using white card stock.  The pieces where then adhered together using liquid glue.  Next, I swiped the following Catherine Pooler inks onto scraps of white cardstock:  in the park, mint to be, cummerbund, its a boy, serenade, sweet sixteen, be mine, its a girl, do-si-do, bellini, tiara.  Then, each piece of cardstock was cut to 1/4 inch strips using a die (paper trimmer also works) and adhered to a piece of printer paper.  I used one of the stitched circle frames die by Lawn Fawn and cut it from white card stock.  The circle frame was adhered to the piece of paper with the stripes and cut using scissors.  This creates the circular rainbow piece in the center of the card.

The images from eggstra amazing were stamped using black copic friendly ink and colored with copic markers.  I also stamped the sentiment and speech bubble from say what? spring critters.  The images were cut using the coordinating dies and white gel pen used to add accents.  All the images were adhered to the front of the card using thin foam squares and liquid glue.  

The entire card front was adhered to an A2 white card base and that completes the card!

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

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
