Holiday floral inspired by December moodboard

Hello friends! I'm so happy to be back on the blog to share my card inspired by the current moodboard challenge. Did you know there is an Instagram account for this challenge? Follow @BRImoodboardchallenge to play along with the monthly color challenge and you could win a $20 gift card to the shop!

For today's card I used lots of products from Lawn Fawn using only die cuts. This is different from the cards I usually create but I'm happy with the end results. I really wanted to play with the stitched poinsettia die cuts after seeing all of the beautiful cards made with it. 

To begin, I looked through my cardstocks and pulled out the colors similar to the moodboard. I know poinsettia's are normally red but I thought the pink and teal would be great together. I think it's such a pretty combination. I cut all the petals from pink cardstock and the leaves from a dark teal cardstock. To add some sparkle I cut the stamen from gold glitter cardstock. 

For interest I ink blended picked raspberry on the edges of each of the petals. I also used a small paint brush to curl the ends of the petals to give it some dimension. I placed a small dot of glue on the center of the petals to glue them together. For the card panel I used a gingham pattern paper to match the pink poinsettias. I also cut a scallop frame from light teal cardstock and vellum.  

For the sentiment I used the scripty merry die cut from light gray cardstock 4x and once on silver glitter cardstock. I adhered the poinsettia's on bottom left corner of the frame. To complete my card I added some details using white gel pen on the leaves, english mustard crystal drops on the center of the stamen, and Studio Katia crystals

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope it inspired you to join the December moodboard. Be sure to tag #BRImoodboard on instagram for a chance to win $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 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

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 vel
