You are dino-mite with Peter

Hi everyone! It's Peter here and I'm back on the blog with another fun card.
This time, I used some Hello Sweetums mixed with Lawn Fawn supplies. Hello Sweetums was a brand that had a lot of cute stamps and dies. Yes, I said was, because it doesn't exist anymore unfortunately. 

But there still is some left in the shop! Like the dinosaur set I used for this card. But also some other very fun sets, so be sure to check that out! Once they are gone, they are gone! 

The base of the card is made with white cardstock and a patterned paper stitched rectangle that I cut with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. The patterned paper is from the Into The Woods Remix 6x6 Paper Pad. The fun speech balloons help to create the blast of color together with the background I created.


That background is created by cutting a little smaller stitched rectangle using the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. With the Plaid Stencil out of the new Lawn Fawn release, I made the striped background. It's easy to achieve; just use one of the stencils one time, and blend some different colors on. Easy, right?

I used Distress Oxide in the colors Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, and Mermaid Lagoon.


The hill is made with kraft paper and the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders from Lawn Fawn. I stamped on the sentiment with Distress Oxide Ground Espresso.

Of course, when you can't get your hands on this cute dino set, there is more dinosaur stuff in the shop, so be sure to check that out!

If you still have questions about how I made this card, please ask! I will be happy to help.

I hope you will have an amazing week ahead!

Peter

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

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

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
