Koalafied for a hug! with Peter

Hi everyone! It's Peter here. I'm back with another card for you! This time, I used something old and something new from Lawn Fawn. I combined the older I Love You(calyptus) set with it's new sibling, the I Love You(calyptus) Flip-Flop. The two koala's can be combined together so it looks like they are hugging and it's adorable!

I used two different stripes for the background. The stripes that are all across the card are made with the new genius Plaid Stencil. You can make perfectly cute plaid patterns with it, but as you can see it's also great for just some striping.

I used Distress Oxide in the colors Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron to blend a gradient in the stripes. The panels are both cut with my all-time favorite basic dies; the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables
With the help of some gold watercolors and some green foil, I gave it just that little bit extra flair!

The smaller striped panel is cut out of a patterned paper from the Really Rainbow 6x6 Paper Pad.
I decorated it with leaves behind it and on it, like the trees are growing all over the panel. I used the eucalyptus tree and leaves from the Critters Down Under set.

It's a quite relaxing card to make, since it doesn't evolve to much work. Just some nice coloring, some die cutting, decorating and assembling. So fun!

If you want to know more about how I've made this card, you can check out my video.
And please know you're always free to ask me anything, I will be happy to help!

I hope you will have an amazing rest of the 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 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
