Guest Designer Sunday with Gladys Marcelino

Hello!

Today we are excited to have another INCREDIBLE post with our Guest Designer this month: Gladys Marcelino!
We're so sad July is almost over and we'll have to bid her adieu!! But before we get TOO sad, let's check out this last project!! Awesome!!

____________________________________________


Hello everyone! I'm back again and I would like to share with you my second card as a guest designer on the BRI blog.

I used the Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends stamp set for the first time. I've had this set for awhile and I'm not sure why it took me sooo long to ink it up. These fairies are so adorable! 
LF is coming out with another set called Frosty Friends for their Fall release and they're definitely going to be as popular!! For my card I used the sunflower and two fairies. 


This card was not hard to put together at all because there was not that many pieces. I envisioned the fairies having fun playing in the flower field. I stamped the flower multiple times along the bottom part of my card panel using masking technique. I colored the fairies and flowers with Copic markers. For the background I blended shades of purple dye inks for the sky and soft green for the bottom. I then die cut the grass border and distressed it with mowed lawn
The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder. I also added the rectangle frame from LF as an added touch. Lastly a fairy is not a fairy without sparkles so I added stickles to their wings!


Thank you so much Vanessa for having me I had so much fun!! I hope you all enjoyed the projects I shared. Thanks for reading and have a great day!!

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&#…
