"You are loved" scrapbook layout

Happy Tuesday friends....Heather here to share another 12 x 12 scrapbook layout I created using stamps and dies from Wplus9 and Altenew!
Actually, there are several different brands incorporated in this project!. so many lovely products to choose from!  This is of a my picture of me and my little girl while enjoying a day at the park.
 
My inspiration for this page actually started with the rose gold embossing powders Vanessa shared on the Butterfly Reflections Ink Instagram feed a little while back....I loved the way the Avery Elle Rose Gold Metallic Embossing Powder looked so I ordered it and definitely wanted to use it on my next project.
I started with a white piece of white cardstock and added a layer of  clear gesso because I knew I wanted to add some mixed media.
 I used the Geometric Heart Stencil from Echo Park and Distress Crayons to add the subtle hearts on the background.  The Tim Holtz distress retractable brush create a softer look that you can build up whereas the Tim Holtz Ink blending tools add more ink and sometimes they get caught on the stencil when applying in the circular motion. Then, I added some splatters in the same colors
 
The title of this page was created with the Altenew  "You are loved" die and embossed with the Avery Elle Rose Gold.  I embossed it two times in order to get the smooth finish.  I love the color of this, however, it made it very difficult to match...I did not have anything in my stash that really matched well, therefore, creating my own embellishments was the best way to go. 
 
 
I used the Wplus9 Pretty Little Peonies stamp set and coordinating die set from to stamp all of these beautiful flowers.  This stamp set has 2 to 3 layering images for each flower and leaf and what I love about this set is there are so many images and few really small images.  The flowers were stamped with Altenew Peach Perfect Crisp Dye Ink as my lightest color, then used Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe and Fresh Peach as my darker color inks.  The tiny images meant for the center of the flowers were stamped with versamark ink and embossed with the same rose gold embossing powder.  The leaves were stamped with Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio and Hero Arts Mint Julep.
 
 
 Once all of the flowers and leaves were cut, I scattered them about the page.  To balance the layout, I tore a section at the top and bottom and ripped it up some so I could layer a piece of patterned paper from Pink Paislee Paige Evan Take Me Away 6 x 6 paper pad under the tear.  I used my tiny attacher to staple the fold.  This little tear and fold in the cardstock provided a convenient place to tuck in more little flowers and leaves.
 
 
To finish up, I scattered Pretty Pink Posh clear sparkling sequins
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired to create your own embellishments with flower stamps and dies and head over to the Butterfly Reflections Ink online shop to see all of the gorgeous choices to shop from!
Have a great week!

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&#…
