Yummy Birthday Wishes!

Hi everyone, it's Peggy here for already my last post on this term in the BRI design team! I had so much fun and have even made new friends in the process. Thanks for all the love I've received on my makes and I hope I can keep inspiring you! On to some yummy birthday wishes for a little boy!

I made today's card especially for my son's birthday. He is turning 3 years old tomorrow and desperately wanted a card for his birthday. How cute is THAT!? I always try to attune my cards to the recipient. My little one is a big dinosaur fan and is always playing ice cream parlor with me. I have to come up to whatever he is standing behind and tell him my order. I give him some make believe money in return and thank him for the ice cream. It is the sweetest thing. So, dinosaurs and ice cream it had to be!

This was again a Lawn Fawn multi stamp set project, with images from Rawrsome, Unicorn Picnic (ice cream, clouds), Yeti or Not (ice cream, gift), Coaster Critters (ice cream stand, balloons), Octopi My Heart (bow tie), Gleeful Gardens (foliage), You are Sublime (foliage), Sweetest Flavor (big ice cream), Sweet Friends (big froyo), Elphie Selfie (birthday cake and wish big sentiment). I stamped everything in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored with my copics.

I used the Lawn Fawn Large Slimline Die with some Spiffy Speckles paper in green. I cut the large polaroid frame from the Say Cheese, Again Set once, and the smaller polaroid frame twice. I cut pieces of white cardstock to go behind the frames and ink blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide with the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil. I adhered everything and finished my project with some Glossy Accents and a white gel pen!

I wish my little one the happiest third birthday with this cute birthday card and hope I was able to inspire you too! As always, long distance hugs!

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 th

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 w

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 vel
