"Waving Hello" feat. Lawn fawn!

Happy monday friends!! 

It's franci ( friday finally ) here today to bright up the starting week!
I'm so happy to show you a bunch of pretty and girly cards feat the most wanted set of the season.. the "mermaid for you" stamp set by Lawn fawn!! 

And yeah.. if you are wondering.. i looooooove it too! I just can't stop stamping these cuties everywhere! ahah! 
Now..let's get into the projects..!


I created 2 designs for today's cards and i made 2 cards for each of them.. 


I'm in love with these cute scenes! I just needed to make lots of cards for my crafty friends and i wanna keep them simple ( so i could make tons of them!) but super pretty and unique too! In the following pictures you can see the power of coloring..the different colors i used for the mermaids change completely the cards style! :)


Love this one.. like it's all light blue coordinated! :)


Love this blondie too!! :)
To create these cards first i die cut some stitched rectangles from some white cardstock, i stamped all my images with Memento tuxedo black ink, i colored them with copics, i die cut them with coordinated dies and i drawn some details with a white gelly roll pen.
I create my backgrounds blending some distress inks ( i used Salty ocean, Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled glass shades and some Walnut stain for the sand in the first design) and i sprayed some water to achieve these cool bubble effect. Then i stamped my sentiment and for the second design i also stamped some seaweeds and corals with Lawn Fawn Inks. 
I glued all my pieces down and i create some bubble with some little drops of Glossy Accents. I also die cut a little heart ( i used this die by Lawn fawn) and i adhered under my sentiment in the first design and i put some wink of stella here and there to make my cards sparkle!! :) 
Hope you like my projects and thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a lovely week! 

franci :)

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&#…
