Guest Designer Sunday - Chari Moss

Chari here, and I'm happy to be back today with another Guest Designer project for the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog! I hope you are all enjoying the new Lawn Fawn goodies now that they are available.  Today I have a fun Birthday card for you with a bit more of a masculine tone using the new Loveable Legends set.  This set is so fun with the images of Nessie, the Kracken and Bigfoot all in that cute Lawn Fawn style.  

I used a woodgrain paper from My Mind's Eye for my background to set the masculine tone.  I was going for a sort of nautical feel so I pulled out the Blue Jay and Chili Pepper cardstock to cut the stitched frame and scalloped circle from. I chose a blue plaid from the Perfectly Plaid collection for the background of my frame and layered some die cut vellum waves over top.

I stamped Nessie and his party hat on cream colored cardstock to mute my copic coloring just slightly adding some white gel pen dot details. I used some Mermaid cardstock and vellum along the bottom, also cut with the ocean wave border dies and stamped my sentiment with Peacock ink.  I had to get a little creative with my sentiment, there is not a "happy" stamp in this set, so I swipped that part of my sentiment from the Little Bundle set and did some selective inking.  Once I had Nessie settled into the vellum waves I finished assembling my card using some Liberty Lawn Trimmings twine, little water splashes stamped in new Merman (my new favorite) and some sparkle white Doodlebug sprinkle embellishments

Thanks to Vanessa and her team for having me this month, it has been a joy to share my projects with you.  Happy Stamping! :)

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
