Thinking of you...

I'm back sharing this mood board- inspired card with you today using a mix of old and new products from Pretty Pink Posh!  The blues, yellows and pinks were inspired by the mood board below.

To start, an A2 piece of Bristol cardstock was cut using the smallest scallop ovals die which is available from Pretty Pink Posh website.  The panel was then ink blended using distress oxide inks: black soot, blueprint sketch and salty ocean for the night sky.   Hillside stencil used to create a grassy hill using distress oxide colors pine needles and mowed lawn.  After the background was dry, I splattered white acrylic paint and added white gel pen to fill in the stars for the night sky.

After using a powder tool,  the sentiment from thoughtful greetings was stamped using Versamark ink and white heat embossed.  

Images from bunny friends, baby, and spring days stamp set were stamped using potting soil archival ink.  Zig clean color real brush pens used to color the images.  I added a small heart from the baby stamp set to the center of the image of the two embracing bunnies.  

The center image was masked,  and mustard seed distress oxide ink was used to fill in outside edges of the stamp of the two bunnies embracing,  The coordinating dies for baby and bunny friends were used to cut the stars and bunny images.  Then, the front panel of the card was adhered to a card base using foam tape.  I made sure to align the stamped image of the two bunnies hugging before adhering the card front.  All of the remaining images were glued to the front panel using liquid glue

To finish the card, I used white gel pen for accents, a black glaze pen for the bunnies noses and iridescent star confetti to the night sky.

Hope you enjoyed this card!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to tag #BRImoodboard on Instagram and Facebook so we can see your amazing creations!

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

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
