Crazy Bird Nursery Wall Art

Good morning! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards! Have you all seen those adorable Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamps yet? If you haven't - you have missed out on a lot of cuteness! 


Something about the little expressions on these birds make me laugh - I just adore them! I had a friend recently ask me to make a set of Nursery Wall art for her with them. It was going to be a shared boy and girl room for a little while, so she wanted them fairly neutral - no to specifically boy or girl. Here are photos of them - I didn't frame them, but just gave them to her so she could frame them how she wished. She has promised me photos when she has had a chance to do that - so I will make sure and share those when I receive them, but wanted to share them here now, since I happened to see that Vanessa still has one set of these in stock right now as I'm writing this - so run and grab it now if you don't have it yet!!!




I used sentiments from Paper Smooches Group Hugs - thought they were perfect for how these were going to be used for wall art! I stamped them on watercolor paper with Versafine Ink - my absolute FAVORITE for watercoloring! I used watercolor paints that I had on hand to color these - but am currently LOVING the Zig Clean Color Brush Pens - and they would be PERFECT for this! There is a fun selection of them in stock at the Butterfly Reflections Ink Store right now - you will definitely want to check those out! As a final finishing touch (hard to see in the photos of course!) - I used a bit of Glossy Accents on the eyes.

Thanks for stopping by today! I have a few close up pictures on my blog if you want a slightly closer look at these - in the meantime, have a wonderful 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…

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 …

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&#…
