You're my Love Bug - By Lorena

 Hello everyone! Today I am back on the blog, to show you a card that I have prepared using the colors of the Moodboard that they propose for May! All the products I have used are available in the store  Butterfly Reflections Ink! This month we propose in the Moodboard some vibrant colors, which I do not usually use in my cards, I love pastel tones! But... I have loved to get out of my comfort zone, and use these cheerful and vibrant colors!! For the base of the card I used the Three Hearts die of Avery elle, which I had not used yet! And to fill the bottom of the hearts I have used the distress oxide Spun Sugar ink. Then I stained the whole card with distress oxide inks, mixed with water... (My God, I didn't like doing this, but now... I love it!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) To make this background, I have used the colors:  Seedless Preserves ,  Peacock Feathers  and  Twisted Citron . The stamps I have used for this card are Love Bugs  of Reverse Confetti, Can there be more adorable bugs in the world

Mothers Day Bri Moodboard Inspiration

Hello crafty friends! Davina here on the blog with fun Mothers Day card I created using some wonderfully  tropical products in the shop, and the May BRI Moodboard colors. All of the items I used are in stock at the  Butterfly Reflections Ink website.   Once again Amanda had gifted us a beautiful Moodboard to inspire our creativity. Rose Water, Aurora Magenta, Marine Green, and Tropic Canary. The jewel tones of this months colors scream tropics to me, so I made a tropical scene. That amazing Fantastic Fronds   slimline cover plate is from Trinity Stamps, and I only used one, small yet mighty, cute stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh called  Tropical Toucans .  I used some heavy weight cardstock to make my slimline base for my card. Next, I cut the 4 inch remaining piece of cardstock with my  Fantastic Fronds   slimline coverplate. On a piece of 3.5 X 8.5 Bristol Smooth Cardstock I blended  Lucky Clover,   Mowed Lawn,  and  Twisted Citron  Distress oxide inks. I gave them a little splatter w

May 2022 Mood Board

Hello there! Amanda here today to share this month's mood board. The color palette was inspired by this gorgeous abstract floral image I came across on Pinterest. What's great about using an inspiration photo like this is even with the same colors you can end up with several palettes with a totally different feel depending on the shades you select. But you know I love saturated color! It's vibrant, bold and so fun for spring florals!  Rosewater, Aurora Magenta, Marine Green, Tropic Canary Image Sources: Pinterest I can't wait to see all of your springy creations! Be sure to share on Instagram with #brimoodboard for a chance to win a $20 shop credit. And follow our @brimoodboardchallenge account to keep up with the monthly boards, entries and winners! And congrats to the random winner of last month's color challenge, Meghan @madebymeghank  Thanks for looking! ~Amanda

Hippo Hooray!

Hi crafty friends! It's Jenn and I'm excited to be back on the BRI blog with a Clearly Besotted card for you! Did you know that BRI is one of only two US based retailers that carries Clearly Besotted ? I just love their cute sets, especially these chonky hippos from the Hippo Bird Day set ! For today's card, I wanted to try my hand at no line coloring. I used Ink on 3 Fadeout Ink ( Lawn Fawn jelly fish ink is similar) to stamp out my images and colored them with Copic markers. I am NOT an expert in no line coloring (this was my 2nd time trying this technique). Fortunately, after coloring my images, my kids recognized my efforts and said "is this no line coloring?" and could tell they were hippos and birds, hahaha! I'll count that as a win LOL πŸ˜‚  I used Lawn Fawn Center Picture Window dies and ink blended and splattered the background with a cloudy stencil and Distress Oxide ink ( tumbled glass , broken china ). For the grass, I used Distress Oxide inks (

πŸ˜– Sorry I Was A Prick 🌡

Hello Crafty Friends! Happy Friday! Today is bitter sweet because I’m back on the blog but it’s my final post as a Design Team Member for the term. Today’s inspiration card combines 2 of my favorite brands Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn!        I love plants πŸͺ΄ so much! But unlike my mother who has the greenest thumb on the planet, I cannot say the same for myself! That is why I LOVE Succulents! They are so easy to care for and even if neglected are difficult to kill. Lol! πŸ˜„ So, to my happy surprise, when Lawn Fawn recently came out with their  Plant- a - Succulent Dies  , I flipped!!! Paper succulents!!! YESSS πŸ™ŒπŸ‘πŸ™Œ I love the idea of being able to build a collection of mini paper succulents in teeny tiny pots with the cutest facial expressions! i love Mama Elephant’s Newest stamp set  It's Okay   so so much that I am using it again for this week’s card.       To create this card, I used  Lawn Fawn Large Stiched Stackables Dies  to cut out my base and pattern papers. I used  My Fav

Sending Hugs Card by Tina

Hi crafty friends, Tina here with my last card for this DT term. These past three months have been amazing! Thank you so much Vanessa for inviting me to the team and a big hug to Samantha for helping me post my texts to the blog. You ladies are the best!! Today I share a sweet celebration card, featuring the adorable koala’s from Mama Elephant’s Koala Hugs and Little Koala Agenda . These two sets work so well together! The cute little ones are planning a party to surprise the sleeping koala! I started by cutting a green panel from the MFT Petite Gingham Paper Pad . Next I die cut three shakers windows in the top part of the panel using the Honey Bee Stamps Sentiment Banners dies and adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the panel. I filled up the shakers with some clear and star embellishments from my stash before closing them with a piece of scalloped white card stock. After stamping all my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, I used my Copic markers fo
