Mood board inspiration with Jane


Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing this cute mood board inspired Valentine's Day card.  Check out this month's gorgeous mood board created by Amanda!  I was inspired by the starry sky image and cool winter tones to create my card.

To start, I first stamped my images using versafine clair ink in nocturne onto Bristol smooth cardstock.  Images are from the following sets:  yeti or not (scarves and hearts), special delivery (birds), a bug deal (branch), love letters (sentiment).  The images were colored using tombow dual brush pens and a number 2 paint brush with water to soften the colors.  Colors used: 403, 291, 910, 025, 803 (birds), 723 and 761 (scarves and hearts).  White gel pen used to add accents to the images and they were cut using the coordinating dies.

To create the center sky, I swiped my stargazer ink pad on white cardstock then cut it using the star trail die (by Ellen Hutson).  The rectangle was cut using the stitched scalloped square frames die and I adhered holographic cardstock to the back of the panel for a shimmery effect!  Next, I cut two frames from white cardstock using the stitched scallop rectangle frames die and the stitched scallop square frames.  An A2 piece of Neenah white cardstock was lightly blended using ballet slipper ink.  Everything was adhered to the panel using foam tape, foam squares and glue.  Sentiment was stamped using stargazer ink and the entire card front was adhered to an A2 card base.

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
