Holy Guacamole... New Mom!!!

Hello BRI Friends Waleska here with a set of very funny, encouraging and cute cards, because ALL moms need to feel loved sometimes. (ALWAYS).  Check out the new stamps we have at the shop from Krumspring Stamps they are awesome and unique!


CARD DETAILS: I started with the backgrounds, I made a heart shape mask with a Heart Die and Stick It Adhesive Sheets.  I used Lawn Fawn inks in colors Merman and Ballet Slippers for the inside part of the heart I blend the two colors with an Ink Blending Tool.


I arrange and stamped the Avocado Family to the front part of the cards because I wanted the little hands to be stamped in different layers.  I wanted to give this cards some texture and I used Embossing Folders to create that.


I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink all the images and colored them with markers.


I hand cut all the cute avocados and place them on the card with Foam Mounting Tape, I color the outside of the card with the same green marker I used for the images.


I finally use Nuvo Drops Apple Green Bubblegum Blush and Caribean Ocean as embellishments. I added the sentiments with the Die-namics Stitched Sentiment Strips. Remember all the new stamps and dies we have at the shop right now! Concord and 9th, Pretty Pink Posh, Wplus9, Neat and Tangled and the New Oxides head over to the shop!!
I hope you have a wonderful day and can be inspired to make some Mom cards!

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&#…
