Hello everyone, it's Peter here again and I'm back with some more crafty inspiration.
Friends of mine recently became mom and dad again, so of course I had to make them a card!


Since I made a cloud plushie as a gift, I wanted to include a lot of clouds on the card as well.
Well, All The Clouds from Lawn Fawn is perfect for that! 


I always like to include the name of the baby on the card, one of my favorite die sets to do that is the Oliver Stitched ABCs from Lawn Fawn. I die cut it out of yellow cardstock and made a little color gradient by blending some Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade with a blending brush.


I wanted the background to be cloudy as well, so I used one of my favorite stencils to achieve that; the Cloudy Stencil from Lawn Fawn. My favorite ink to combine that with is Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass.

I blended the edges with some Distress Oxide Mermaid Lagoon and that's also what I used to splatter the background.


The card is slimline sized and I used the Mama Elephant Slim Card Basics to cut the stitched background and the scalloped panel.
Since my friends already had three kids, I wanted to somehow include that on the card as well. The little bears out of the Den Sweet Den and Snow Much Fun sets from Lawn Fawn seemed perfect for the job!

I made a cloud at the bottom where Arlen's brothers are standing to welcome Arlen into the family.
The cloud is cut with the Puffy Cloud Borders and with the Sandy Beach Accents I made it look like they sank into the cloud a little.


They where very happy with the card and my cloud plushie, so mission accomplished!
I hope I inspired you all with my card. If you have any questions, be sure to ask so I can help you out.

I hope you have a incredible rest of the week with a lot of time to craft!

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
