Swantastic lake with Peter

Hi everyone! I'm Peter, you may have seen me before on social media as Peter's Treasury. I'm so excited to be in the design team for the next few months! I love to share my projects to inspire others, so that's a perfect match, right?

I'm living in The Netherlands together with my husband and our pets, one of them being our dog Churro (he is adopted from Spain!).

I've been making cards for more than three years now, I started with a few small Lawn Fawn sets. After that I was hooked! Not long after, I started my projects on Instagram and card making tutorials on my YouTube channel

Today I'm sharing a card made with all Lawn Fawn products. I was inspired by the ducks, geese and swans around my appartement building.

I was thinking about using Rub-A-Dub-Dub, because we've been seeing a lot of baby ducks already. But the swans have been busy making a nest, so I went with Swan Soirée!
To give some diversity to the surroundings in the scene, I also used Toadally Awesome and Critters Down Under.

I always love frame cards, so the Peekaboo backdrop from Lawn Fawn was perfect for the job. I ink blended a gradient with Distress Oxide in the colors Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon.

An easy background was made with the cloud patterned paper from the Into The Woods Remix 6x6 Paper Pad. The water was made with the Stitched Wave Borders and I ink blended those with Tumbled Glass and again some Mermaid Lagoon.
I stamped the sentiment using Chipped Sapphire with the help of my Misti stamp tool to be sure of a nice and crisp impression.

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 have a lovely rest of the week with lots of crafty time.

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
