April Bri Moodboard with Davina

Hello crafty friends! Davina here with some fairy filled color inspiration. The beautiful April Moodboard is a collection of Honeydew, Robins Egg, Passionfruit, and Violet. I’m always so blown away by the monthly Moodboards that Amanda curates each and every month. I love the challenge of creating scenes using these color pallets. 


I have impatiently awaited the arrival of the newest Doodlebug Design release. The adorable fairies from the Fairy Gardenstamp set, and the super cute bugs from Fairy Bugs and kisses were a must have me. I also ordered some paper pads and little extras and created this card last night after my package was received. Now I will admit that I strayed from using only colors from the color board on this card. I purchased the cute little mushroom Fairy House Doodle Pop, and couldn’t resist using it even though it was orange and bright pink. So you will see that I added a little bit of orange/yellow and pink to my coloring to help the house blend in. 


I cut my paper layers using Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Slimline Dies from Bristol Smooth, Limeade and aqua card stocks. Then I created some grassy layers using Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside borders dies. I inked the edges of all of my layers and splattered with glittery Liquid Stardust

I stamped my images and colored them with copic markers before cutting out with coordinating dies. Then, after adhering my many layers together with my liquid Glue Tube, I assembled my scene. I tucked some of the images behind my grassy layers, and let a few of them hang over the edge as I always like to do. Then once everything was in place, I highlighted with small white dots. 


I heat embossed my sentiment on the bottom watery layer, then mounted the whole thing onto a purple layer of cardstock to frame it all out. I really love these stamps and can’t wait to use them again soon! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you playing along with the April BRI Moodboard and using the hashtag #brimoodboard on your social media posts. One random winner will receive $20 to the 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

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
