Oh Gnome June MoodBoard with Davina



Hello crafty friends. Davina here on the blog, with some color board inspiration for you today. I made a Slimline scene bursting full of Lawn Fawn goodness, that I hope you love. The June BRIMoodboard is a very zen/spa like color combination of wood grain, both bright and bold greens, and a lavender. At first one would think these colors difficult to use, but since green and purple are complimentary colors on the color wheel, they always look fabulous together. 

I pulled out about 7 different Lawn Fawn sets to create this bursting meadow scene, and the new Lawn Fawn Slimline dies both the Large And Small sets. I had a much different idea for this project when I first sat down. And about 5 hours later I had something very different than when I thought I was going to make. While flipping through my sets looking for images I wanted to use, I pulled out Oh Gnome, Gleeful Gardens, Frosty Fairy Friends, Fairy Friends, Jump for Joy, Butterfly Kisses, and A Bug Deal. I stamped about 30 images onto my Neenah classic crest cardstock using my stamp platform. I used the coordinating dies to cut out all of the images before coloring. That way I could create a scene like a puzzle, and only color the images I was going to use. 

I used the largest slimline die to cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Kraft Cardstock that I stamped some wood grain onto using Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf Brown ink. Then Using the next largest die, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock that I inkblended with Shaded Lilac & Dusty Concord. I splattered the panel with purple ink, white ink, and glittery perfect pearls. I cut some remnants of green cardstock with the same sized die and added a grassy border to each using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders To create a rolling hillside. I inked the edges of the grass using Mowed Lawn & Lucky Clover

Then I colored all of my images using my copic markers in color combinations that matched the mood board. I really enjoyed using all of the different shades of wood brown, green, and lavender on these images.then, using a variety of adhesives, I mounted all of the images onto the scene. I decided the little gnomes and the hummingbird needed a little bit of a boost, so I popped them up onto die cut fun foam. I really love the dimension it gives. I glued my layers together then added a little Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter To the roof of the house do the center of my card can have a little Razzle Dazzle. 

I really love how this turned out and I hope you do too. If you are feeling inspired to use the Moodboard please make sure to use the #brimoodboard and link you card into my blog using the InLinkz button for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the shop!

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 …
