You're DINO-mite! by Beata

Hi crafty friends! It's Beata June here and I'm sharing this dino-mite project using Mama Elephant stamps. 

This project features:

The colors I used were inspired by this month's brimoodboard:

First things first, I stamped out the cute little dinos from the Mama Elephant Little Dino Agenda stamp set and the big dino from the Mama Elephant Me and My Dinosaur stamp set on white cardstock using a Gina K Amalgam Ink pad, and colored the dinos with copic markers to match the moodboard colors.  I cut out my colored dinos and then set them aside.

Next, I cut out the film strip from black cardstock using the Whimsy Stamps Film Strip Die.  Then I cut out another film strip with white cardstock for the three panels for my film strip.  I blended the three film strip panels using distress oxide inks with colors inspired by the brimoodboard:  for the background for my top and bottom frames I used Wilted Violet and Speckled Egg distress oxide inks; for the middle frame I used abandoned coral, festive berries, and twisted citron distress oxide inks.  

Then I splattered my frames with citron, blue, coral and purple paint to match the moodboard colors.

I added grass to my top and bottom frames by cutting out a stitched hillside from white cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Slimline Simple Stitched Hillside Lawn Cuts die and blending that with twisted citron distress oxide ink, splattered them with paint, and glued the grassy hillsides to my top and bottom frame using a Lawn Fawn glue tube, cutting off the excess edges from the grass so that they fit the film strip frames.  Next, I glued the black film strip and my blended frames onto a piece of white cardstock, and then glued on my colored dinos using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.  

I added little speech bubbles saying "rawr" and "roar" using the sentiments from the Mama Elephant Little Dino Agenda stamp set and the little clouds from Mama Elephant Circle of Friends stamp set, which I colored with blue copic markers.  

Then I added little coral colored hearts to my top frame which I stamped out using the tiny hearts from the Mama Elephant Circle of Friends stamp set.  I added a palm tree to my middle frame and volcano to my bottom frame which I stamped from the Mama Elephant Little Dino Agenda stamp set.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment "You are truly dino mite" from the Mama Elephant Me and My Dinosaur stamp set onto my bottom frame using a Gina K amalgam ink pad.  

Here's another look at my finished dino mite slimline card:

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

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
