Hello Bootiful with Davina

Hello my Bootiful Friends! Davina here, with some October Moodboard Inspiration. I made a really fun Shaker-Slimline card using a mixture of new and old products that I hope you’ll love just as much as I do. The colors this month were very bold fall colors of a deep berry, yellow, orange, and olive green. I used a very dark palette of mostly black and accented the colors to create my project. 

I used some just released slimline stamps from Trinity stamps to create this incredible branch frame. This set All Spruced Up was just dropped yesterday, and intended for beautiful Christmas cards. But I wanted to make a spooky card, so I stamped it in black on gray cardstock. Then, after using the matching die to easily cut it out, I inked the edges of the slimline panel with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. I stamped a few of the pine cones and branches in black and gray to accent the top. And I love how stamping in Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink showed up so well on the gray card. 

Next, I used the stand alone Hello Bootiful die from Trinity Stamps, to cut the sentiment from a deep berry colored cardstock. I die cut a Slimline Panel for the background using Trinity Stamps Stitched Panels, and inkblended it with Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot Oxides. I splattered with water and white ink and put aside to dry. 

I stamped some ghost images and accessories using an older Lawn Fawn set called Booyah! It’s really fun and I like how large the images are. I colored everything with copic markers, using colors from the Moodboard, and die cut with the matching die set. I assembled my ghosts, and got to work creating the shaker.

I trimmed some clear acetate and adhered it under the branch layer with scor tape. Then, I used nice thick Heffy Doodle Deep Foam Tape to frame the back of the branch panel, making sure the tape wasn’t visible. I added a ton of faux candy mix atop the inky panel, and carefully put the top piece over. 

I love how dark and moody this turned out. It has such a completely different feel than my fairy card from the other week. I hope that you take the time to try this current Moodboard, and use the Hashtag #brimoodboard on Instagram to be entered to win a $20 Gift certificate to Butterfly Reflections Ink 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 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

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 vel
