June Mood Board Inspiration!


Hi everyone!  So happy to be sharing another fun slimline card using the June mood board for inspiration!  All the stamps and dies I used to create this card can be found at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  

To start, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth card stock using the small slimline dies by Lawn Fawn.  Then, I masked and ink blended a sky and the background mountains using the following distress oxide inks: shaded lilac, milled lavender  and white pigment ink (for the sky) and a mix of peacock feathers and lucky clover (for the background mountains).  Lawn Fawn cloudy stencil used for the white clouds and I created my own stencil using the stitched mountain die for the mountains.

Using brown cardstock, a road was cut using the hillside dies. The slider was cut down the middle using the large slimline dies and pieced together using foam tape and slider elements.  I also cut some mountains from the stitched mountain die and inked the bottom using lucky clover ink.

Images are from the following sets: car critters, butterfly kisses (butterflies), mom and me (owl), dad and me (moose), winter skies (small tree), the large tree is from Merry Mice set.
Images were all stamped using hero arts intense black ink on Neenah 110lb cardstock and colored using copic markers.  Acetate was stamped with black StazOn ink and stamped with the "recalculating" from the car critters set.
I used a combination of liquid glue and foam tape/squares to adhere the images to the card front.


The sentiment from the car critters stamp set was masked and stamped using Versafine Clair ink in nocturne.  Woodgrain backdrop stamp was inked with walnut stain ink and stamped on brown cardstock.  Letters for "Lost" were cut using Quinn's ABC die and mounted to the card using foam squares.  Lastly, the panel was adhered to a white background using the large slimline die and then to a 3.5 inch by 8.5 inch white card base.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you will join the June mood board challenge this month.  Be sure to tag us on instagram #BRImoodboard and link to Davina's blog to win a $20 gift certificate to Butterfly Reflections Ink.

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…

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 …

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&#…
