Waving Hello With Lawn Fawn .....

Happy Thursday everyone !! Mayra here with today's post . 
I am loving fairies and mermaids at the moment ...
<3 as you will see with my upcoming cards . 

For today's card I used the Lawn Fawn Mermaid For You stamp set . 
I began by die cutting two pieces of cardstock using 
For one of the die cut pieces I used water color paper . 

 I knew I would be doing a bit of water color for the background .
I used Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire ( other alternative can be Memento Luxe Nautical Blue) Cracked Pistachio , and Peacock Feathers
For the touches of gold I used Gansai Tambi in Bluish Gold .  

As my water colored piece dried I colored in the images I would be using . 

Then I die cut the scalloped base and banner from the Neat and Tangled Scalloped Dies set . 
  I then heat embossed the sentiment onto my die cut banner using 
 I also created a mini shaker using We r Memory Keepers Fuse Tool

I hope you enjoy by waving hello card using all these goodies from the Butterfly Reflections, Ink . store ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by ! 
Wishing you all a wonderful and Blessed day .

  1. It was so fun reading what you did to create this card, Mayra! It's so pretty! I really like that watercolor background. The colors are perfect and the touch of gold so creative. You got a lot of detail into little images and the rock she's sitting on looks so realistic. I also really like the the heart is a shaker. Lots of love about this one!

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&#…
