Fairy Dance using the Oct. Mood Board




Hello my Inky friends! Davina here sharing a slimline card I made using the Fairy Dance from Hello Bluebird. I purchased so many products from this release and have been hoarding them unused, without as much crafting time as I would enjoy. I’m so happy to finally pull some of them out, and get to use them, before it is full on winter cards. I combined these cute images with The Fairy Glade Verticals  slimline background die, and the bold and vibrant October Mood Board.



I stamped the images and copic colored them using deep berries, sunflower yellow, pumpkin orange and a combination of greens from olive to moss. After die cutting them using the coordinating dies, I added glittery Spectrum Noir Sparkle Overlay to the wings and insects. Then I added some small white dot highlights. 

I cut the background out of bristle smooth cardstock and a second panel, trimmed to the inner size of the background die (3 1/8th X 8 1/8th), because I didn’t want to use the skinny frame. I always struggle trying recreate those puzzles and get mad when I can see the little areas where they didn’t matchup perfectly. Using a variety of Distress Oxide Inks I inked the individual pieces and added a very small amount of copic detailing to some of the pieces. I created an evening sky using seedless preserves, picked raspberry, dried marigold, and scattered straw. I splattered it with water and a little puddle of the glittery spectrum noir ink. 

I reassembled the die cut pieces onto my panel and popped the short front grass up on foam tape. Then I added my stamped images to the scene and popped my faries up with foam tape as well. I stamped a typed sentiment from the HB Leaf Play set. I added some random music notes that were laying on my desk from another project instead of getting out some sequins, then layered it all onto a scalloped layer cut from deep pomegranate cardstock. 

I love how these colors remind me of a spice market and Indian summer vibes. I found them super easy to use. I hope you play along this month, and create a project using the October Mood Board colors, and enter for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop. Just use the hashtag #brimoodboard on Instagram and/or link your project to my blog to be considered for a random drawing thank you dropping by,

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&#…
