Oh Hoppy Day with Aug BRI Moodboard

Hello crafty friends! Davina here on the blog with some BRI Moodboard color inspiration. The cool toned August colors are super dreamy consisting of pistachio, sky, magenta, and eggplant. At first I felt a little hesitant until I realized that that these are colors I use on their own all the time. I have a pile of super adorable Paperie Ink Stamps that are unused so I flipped through looking for something that I would color light green and the cute froggies from Oh Hoppy Day caught my eye. 

I stamped several of the super cute frogs, lotus flowers, and lily pads onto my Neenah solar bright cardstock, and got to work. I colored the images with copic markers, using colors from the Moodboard, then I carefully fussy cut out each image. Once they were cut out I added my white dot highlights. 

Next I used the new Lawn Fawn Simple Stripe Portrait die to cut a piece of white and black cardstock. I assembled the alternating colors onto a trimmed A2 panel with liquid glue. I cut a smaller stitched panel using the Outside In stitched rectangle stackable from Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I loosely inkblended the four Moodboard colors onto the upper portion of the panel in a wavy arched motion. Once dry I splattered with water then used the Lawn Fawn Starry Sky Stencil and glitter paste to fill my sky with glittery stars. 

While that dried I embossed the Oh Hoppy Day sentiment onto a black banner strip. I adhered the banner and the images over the top 2/3rds of the panel then mounted the panel onto the striped background using foam tape for a little dimension. 

This card came together in a snap and I love the way the colors look together. I hope you feel inspired to play along this month using the August BRI Moodboard colors. Post your projects on Instagram using the hashtag #brimoodboard for your chance to win $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

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
