Hi from your koala friends!

Hi Hi from koala friends and me!

Alix here coming back to say hi to all crafty friends! Today I am showing your a shaker card I made using Pretty Pink Posh Koala Friends Stamp set with some other great products.

I started off Copic coloring all stamped images from  Pretty Pink Posh Koala Friends Stamp set , Darling Dragonflies Stamp set (for grass), and Bunny Friends Stamp set (for foliage). Once they are colored and used coordinating dies to cut them out. (Koala Friends, Darling Dragonflies, and Bunny Friends )


To create the background, I ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and a little bit Gathered Twigs at the bottom onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper. Then I mixed Cracked Pistachio ink with water and splattered it over the background by tapping my watercolor brush handle. When everything is dried, I stamped sentiment Hi from Pretty Pink Posh Everyday Greetings stamp set using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black, I also added a koala bear peeking from inside of shaker window.


To create the shaker window, I cut the frame out of Pretty Pink Posh Scallop frame die,  then I glued a piece of acetate paper underneath. Before I close up the window, I poured some Pretty Pink Posh seed beads in Sparkling clear and Jewels in Spring green and Shamrock onto the background. I attached the window using foam tape onto background panel. 


Lastly, I arranged the rest of images around shaker window and adhered the whole background panel onto a A2 card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you all here in the near future. Don't forget to head out to Butterfly Reflections Ink to grab some goodies!

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&#…
