Smile! with Audrey

Hello there!  Audrey here!  Today I have a card to share with you using old and new Lawn Fawn products!  I used the Stitched Rectangle Stackables to diecut a rectangle for my focal point.  Then I used the Puffy Clouds border dies, cut from a post-it note, to create a cloudy background using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and an ink blending tool.  To took the cloud mask and stuck it to my rectangle at the bottom.  I inked the free edge of the cloud with a very light hand, and then moved it the cardstock repeating the inking, and shifting the mask as I went along so that the clouds were not perfectly uniform.  I stamped and fussy cut one of the penguins from Toboggan Together, and stamped the balloon images from Hello Sunshine using Lobster ink, before diecutting them with the coordinating dies.  I adhered them with foam tape, and then hand drew balloon strings.  I popped the penguin up with foam tape, and positioned him so that he looks like he was floating along with the balloons.  I matted the panel on red card stock, then diecut some clouds, also from the Hello Sunshine die set, and popped them up with foam tape.  I adhered the whole panel to a mermaid notecard, and added white gel pen accents to the balloons.  Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Smiles stamp set.

Smile

That's all for me today!  Be sure to stop back by again tomorrow for more inspiration from the design team! :)

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…

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&#…

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 …
