Happy Mother's Day - Mood Board Inspiration with Jane


Happy Mother's Day!  I'm sharing this colorful Mother's Day card using a bunch of Lawn Fawn sets which can be purchased at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  Inspiration comes from the May mood board (below).  The phrase "Mama" is really is dear to me, as my three year old daughter calls me Mama.  I hope this card inspires you to use the mood board colors this month!

To create this card, I first ink blended a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using the following distress oxide inks (top to bottom): picked raspberry, kitsch flamingo, abandoned coral, scattered straw, twisted citron and peacock feathers.  Next, I used the large stitched rectangle die to cut the panel.  The bottom of the panel was then cut using the stitched simple wavy borders.  Next, the top portion was again die cut using the stitched cloudy backdrop die and splatted with some water.  Then, I adhered the bottom "water" portion to an A2 piece of white cardstock using liquid glue.  The top part of the card was adhered down using foam tape to create dimension.  

Next, I stamped images from the following stamp sets using versafine clair ink in nocturne

Oh Gnome!

How you Bean?

Toadally Awesome

The images were colored using Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and cut using the coordinating dies.  I added white accents with a gel pen.  Next, I stamped and cut the jar shaker using the how you bean shaker add-on die set.  Acetate was adhered to the front and foam tape applied to the edges to create a shaker.  I filled the shaker with some pink glitter and iridescent confetti.  All the images were then adhered using liquid glue and foam tape.

Lastly, I cut out the letters using Finley's ABC die from Sticky Note cardstock.  Thin foam tape used to adhere the letters with the help of a T-square ruler.  The entire card front was adhered to an A2 white card base using double sided tape and that completes the card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day!  Be sure to tag use at #BRImoodboard for your chance to win a $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
