Guest Designer Sunday with Amy Tsuruta

Hello, it's Amy of Tsuruta Designs!  I'm super thrilled to be guesting for Butterfly Reflections Ink for the month of March!  I've been a long time fan of the shop & Vanessa :)  Before I start chatting about my project for today, I thought I would tell you a bit about myself.  I've been happily blogging for over 7 years.  I feel so fortunate to be a  part of this blogging & Paper Crafting Community!  I'm the momma to two kids, my daughter will be 20 this month and my boy is a senior in high school.  I'm engaged to a very awesome guy that is crafty too!  He literally just finished building an airplane!  When he has logged in 40 hours of flight time, I'll be able to join in the fun!  I work part-time for a start up biotech company in Seattle.  Seriously, I just want to drink coffee and make pretty things!

Okay, that's enough chattin', let's get to my project, eh?  <-- fun fact, I'm a Canadian living in Washington State :)

Have you seen the newest release by Lawn Fawn?!  Oh my, cuteness overload!  My card today uses 3 of their newest products:

Cork and Veneer?!  Yes, Please!

I  ♡ the Stuck on You stamps & coordinating Lawn Cuts.  For this card I used the Lawn Cuts on cork...gotta love all that texture!  I couldn't resist cutting a sweet bloom in pink felt!

The only stamping on this card is the sweet face which is compliments of the My Lucky Charm stamp set.

I'm a HUGE fan of veneer and LOVE the Scripty Thanks!

Bonus points that the card was quick to make, just a some die cutting!

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
