Hello BlueBird

Easter Egg Hunt

Hi Friends! It is Dana here today. I hope you all had a good couple of weeks...I had last week off from posting so it is great to be back. Today, I am sharing an Easter card that uses lots of products from Hello BlueBird. Their Newest Release was definitely one of my favorites for Easter!!

I started my card by stamping my images from the Easter Egg Hunt Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Sketch Markers and used the coordinating Easter Egg Hunt Dies to cut them out. 

Next, I began working on my card panel. I used a lavender woodgrain paper from the Doodlebug Design Simply Spring 6x6 Paper Pad for my background. I die cut the Hello Bluebird Photo Stack Dies from white cardstock. Then, I ink blended Distress Oxide Ink in Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry onto the inside piece of the photo frame. Next, I die cut a small piece of grass printed paper from the Doodlebug Design Hoppy Easter 6x6 Paper Pad with the Lawn Fawn Mushroom Border Die. I attached the grass to my ink blended background and inlaid this piece back into the photo frame.

I stamped my sentiment onto the smaller frame and attached everything to my card front to finish my card. 
Thanks for joining me today!! I hope you get a chance to stop by the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Store and shop the Easter Section. There are so many great products, perfect for this time of year!!

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&#…
