Splashing awesome with Peter

Hi everyone! My term on the BRI design team comes to an end. This will not mean I will be completely gone, because I will pop-up once in a while. But I'm sharing my 'last' card in my term with you today.

This time I played around with some Heffy Doodle. The images are so incredibly cute, I just had to make a card with them.

I started with imagining how I want my (mini) scene to look like. I mostly used images from Highland Honeys, I only used the cloud and the sentiment from other sets.

The cloud is from Fluffy Puffy Unicorns, I stamped that out with Memento London Fog by the way, I always love when clouds have a softer feel.

The sentiment is from Pebble Sentiments, that set is amazing! I picked one out that I stamped with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers using my Misti. I stamped it a few times till I got a nice and crisp impression.

I picked a fun patterned paper that I cut with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables from Lawn Fawn. With the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables I cut a rectangle out of some watercolor paper. 

With the Messy Desk stencil I created a quick and simple background using Distress Oxide Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord.

I adhered everything in place, some things with foam tape, other things just glued down. To finish it off, I used some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops.

I hope I could inspire you to get crafty yourself and I hope you have a great rest of the week. 

I am super grateful I got the chance to inspire you all with my cards as a member of the Design Team! Thanks Vanessa! 

If you want to keep following my work, you can find me on Instagram and YouTube. And like I said, I won't be completely gone on here too!

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
