Sweet Tidings - Sharna W.

Hello it's Sharna! I have two cards for you today. I already shared one on instagram but I thought I would share again with some more details!


This first card is the new one. I've had this stamp set from Lawn Fawn for a while now and I just never used it. No idea why! Don't know how many of you are playing along with the 30 day color challenge but if you aren't you should give it a try! I find I can give many stamps that have been collecting dust a chance for some action. Today both my cards came from playing with coloring. This card was an experiment with distress ink coloring. I got a new water brush so of course I had to take it for a spin. The background is made with some simple heat embossing of the hearts in this set and some ink smooshing. That' s basically taking your ink, putting it on a block, spraying it and smooshing it to your paper. Its a lot of fun and super easy! I used Picked Raspberries for the background and the milk carton. The cookies are actually are actually a brown watercolor pencil as I don't own a single brown distress ink (which I will remedy very shortly!). They are popped up on foam dots and layered on top of a vellum circle that I die cut and the water color is also popped up on foam layered onto a vellum die cut.



So if you follow me on instagram @littleyellowbirdy118 you've seen this card already. I just thought I'd share with anyone who does not. The little aliens from Monster Mash from lawn fawn were an experiment of blending two very different copic colors together. I used a pale purple and a warm grey. I made several mistakes on the baby blending wise but I was able cover them up using details with a white gel pen and spots using the darkest purple marker.

Supplies:
Picked Raspberry - Distress Ink
Milk and Cookies Stamps - Lawn Fawn
Milk and Cookies die cuts - Lawn Fawn

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&#…
