Hello BRI Fans!!

Piali here, I'm back with few cards!
I'm soooo loving all the fabulous new goodies in Butterfly Reflections, Ink store.
I like to follow latest trends and I have been enjoying all beautiful water colored creations all over the blogland. 
I was not sure if I have the skills for it....... but finally I got myself some ZIG Clean Color Brush markers and today I played with them.
I have to admit that I had so much fun....its really very easy to use the ZIG Clean Color Brush markers.
 I hope you all like the cards as much as I do!! 

I used the new Altenew Wild Hibiscus stamp set for all these cards.
As a first timer..I played safe , just heat embossed the floral image using WOW opaque white EP.
Then I simply colored the blooms with ZIG markers and water brush.

For the sentiment I combined a stamp from the same Altenew set and THIS Wplus9 set.
The patterned paper is from Avery Elle.

 For the next card I picked the beautiful butterflies from the stamp set.
A clean and simple thank you card!!!
I did the same for this card, heat embossed and watercolored with Zig Clean Color brush markers.
For this sentiment I used Paper Smooches stamp and the sub sentiment from Altenew Wild Hibiscus set.

 Here is my final card for today...
I used another gorgeous image from Altenew Wild Hibiscus set.
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and the patterned paper is from Avery Elle.
I also stamped the floral image on the card base.

I used one of my favorite embellishments for all three cards.... Diamonds are Girl's best friend sequins.

Zig Clean Color brush markers are fabulous, blends very easily and colors stays very vibrant.

Make sure to checkout BRI store for all amazing new products!!
I'll be back next week with few more projects, can't wait to use all my new goodies from BRI store!!!

Thanks for stopping by..
Happy Crafting!!!

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

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

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
