February Mood Board

Hello there! Amanda here today to share the February mood board. I was immediately drawn to these gold on navy images and then pulled in the pink and minty blue to coordinate. It's makes a great non-traditional Valentine's Day palette too!

Mint, Gold, Soft Pink and Navy

And here is my layout it inspired! 


I started with creating my background by splattering several mist colors on white cardstock. Once the mist was dry I added white embossing paste with a stencil. Then I went back in and added a few rub-ons and stickers. Once my background was done I layered several papers from a few different paper pads and tucked in other elements like the gold foil die cuts, "awesome" overlay, stickers and enamel shapes.
Layout titles are seriously the bane of my existence. I don't know why I struggle with them so much, but I do! I pulled these wood tiles from my stash and tried to piece something together and I think it turned out okay. I used the FABULOUS Honey Bee Stamps Brush Grunge Alpha stamp set to stamp out "favorite" and then did my best to cut it out. Seriously this stamp set is a must! It's such a fun script and not only comes with both upper and lower case alphas but some fun brush shapes too!

Supplies Used: On Trend 2 enamel dots, Under the Tree Pop Dots, Jubilee Wild Enamel Shapes, Brush Grunge Alpha Stamp, Hello Love Gold Resin Heart Stickers, Stencil, Embossing paste, On Trend 2 Rub-ons, Hello Love Glitter Title Stickers, On Trend 2 Paper Pad, Office Suite Paper Pad, Craft Market Paper PadConfetti Acetate Die Cuts, Explore Overlays, Glossy Accents (as adhesive)

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…

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&#…

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 …
