Bri Moodboard inspiration with Davina

Hello Crafty Friends! Davina here with some spooky Moodboard color inspiration. October brought us some traditional Halloween colors to play with, that no one should find difficult to use. The colors this month are Flowing Green, Pumpkin, Electric Violet, and Midnight Blue. 

I used tons of Mama Elephant products and a few Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts to bring this card to life. I started by using the new Mushroom Home creative cuts to die cut some colored cardstock. I gently inked the edges of the cardstock to create depth. I layered the individual pieces and adhered with liquid glue. Next I stamped many images from multiple Agenda Stamp sets to create my scene. I used Little Girl Agenda, Little Witch Agenda, Little Gnome Agenda, and the Little Boo Agenda. I colored all of these images with copic markers using colors from the October Moodboard. Then I die cut each image using the coordinating dies. 

I cut a few panels for my background with Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I like to use the largestbdies for my image panels, because it leaves a nice little frame for my background papers to peak through. I cut one of those panels into two hilly pieces using Grassy Hillside Borders, then inkblended the panels into my Midnight Blue sky and and Electric Green grass. After giving them time to dry, I layered my grassy hills onto the sky using foam tape on the shortest piece. 

Next, I tucked my large mushroom house into the hills and layered my images into the scene. I tucked some of the grass diecuts from the Mushroom Home set around some bottom images and added a few bats and spiderwebs from a Lawn Fawn Build a House Halloween Add On.  Those few pops of black really add a visual punch. I finished it off by adhering some teeny tiny iridescent stars around the available sky.

Go through you stash and see how you can combine you sets, and even non holiday sets, to create a spooky Halloween card, just by using the current BRI Moodboard colors. And play along with the color challenge for your chance to win $25 to the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop. Just post you projects using the 4 colors and use the hashtag #brimoodboard . It’s that easy! 

Thank you for stopping by, Davina

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

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
