Hello everyone! It's me again, Peter, and I'm back with more inspiration for you all.
I took inspiration from the new mood board and came up with this colorful card.


I have nothing against bright colors on cards, but normally it's not my style of card making. So I especially enjoyed working on this card because it was something different for me!


I love frame cards, to make mini scenes that form a bigger scene all together. Where in an earlier blog post I used the Lawn Fawn Foursquare Backdrop: Landscape die, I now used the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait die. I love how you get a piece on the bottom for a sentiment!


With the Cloudy Stencil from Lawn Fawn and Distress Oxide in the colors Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry I blended a sky on some watercolor paper. Then I used the Foursquare Backdrop die, to cut out the frame (remember you can use the cut out squares on another card!).


I stamped out a bunch of images from Oh Gnome! and Gleeful Garden. I colored them using my Copic markers. I die cut all the images with the matching dies and then I went ahead building all the scenes!


What I like to do, is laying everything out first, take a picture with my phone and then continue glueing it all on. I glued everything to the frame, because later on I want to pop it all up with some foam tape.


I picked a fun patterned background out of my stash and used the biggest die from the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables to cut out the background. It's the same size as the frame, so that's perfect!

In the Foursquare set you can also find some extra dies for building scenes. I cut out the cloud one two times out of watercolor paper. I temporarily adhered it to the frame with some tape so they are exactly where I wanted them. Then I can put some glue on the back and align it with my background. That way the clouds are exactly in the right place adhered on the background!


With the use of my Misti, I stamped on the sentiment with Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry as well. After that I could glue on the last two images and use some thin foam tape to adhere everything to the background that I glued on a card base.

I hope you feel inspired to join the mood board challenge and that you will have a lovely rest of the week.

Peter

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
