Sending Llama Love with Davina and the Bri Moodboard

Hello my inky fingered friends! Davina here on the blog, sharing some fun February BRIMoodboard inspiration. The colors this month are cotton Candy, hot pink, jet black and steel gray. I’ve made a few projects already with these bold colors and it has been so exciting.

I pulled a pile of scrap papers from my bin (cause I’m crazy and always try to use my remnants first), and found some hot pink, glitter cardstock, and black& white stripes that I wanted to use. Then I flipped through some of my unused stamp sets. These llamas from Mama Elephants Little Llama Agenda  have been calling my name.  I didn’t know how I was going to use them but I knew I wanted gray snow capped mountains and some pink grass  on a slimline card. 

I used the beautifully detailed Scalloped slimline Pull Tab die from Heffy Doodle to cut a hot pink base. Then I used some Lawn Fawn Stitched Slimline  dies to cut 3 panels from Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I cut one panel in half usingLawn Fawn Mountain Borders, and from a second panel, I cut slightly taller mountains. I also cut some glittery snow caps to mount on top. For the leftover bits of paper I cut a grassy hillside using the curved short grass from Lawn Fawn Mushroom Borders dies, this way all of my layers have the same great stitched detail. 

Using the final uncut piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock, and the Cloud Stencil from Lawn Fawn, I inkblended some hot pink clouds using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink, halfway down the panel. I inked my mountains with Weathered Wood and ,my grass with Spun Sugar (edged in Raspberry). I gave everything a little splatter with white, black and pink inks. 

I stamped some of the adorable Llamas and copic colored them using just a few colors  making sure to add pops of hot pink and cotton candy. After die cutting with the coordinating Little Llama Agenda Creative Cuts, I added little white dot highlights. I assembled my layers and popped my grass up on foam tape, then adhered my cute llamas. I cut Scripty “Love” 3 times and glued the, together to make a chipboard like embellishment, then stamped and heat embossed Sending Llama using words from various Lawn Fawn stamp sets. I finished this off with a few Valentine Pink Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh. 

It was so much fun mixing up these different brand products, it’s not something I normally do, and I really adore how this turned out.

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

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

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
