Easter BRI Moodboard inspiration

Hello crafty friends! Davina here on the blog with a bright spring card to spark some #brimoodboard color inspiration for you. The colors this month are truly special. Very trendy, boho colors, that just give happy vibes. Not to mention that they coordinate with some of our favorite Distress Ink and Oxide colors. Saltwater Taffy, Wild Honey, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers, you couldn’t ask for a more delicious color board. 

With Easter being only a week away, I wanted to make an Easter card. I haven’t purchased any new Easter themed sets in a of couple years since I don’t send out Easter cards, and I was just collecting them. So I went through my stash and found a few sets that I have been hoarding for years to play with. All items are in stock and  available on the Butterfly Reflections Ink website.

I wanted to make a mesh shaker using the cute jar set from Lawn Fawn. Funny enough, I have never used those standard jelly beans that come in the How you bean set. I combined those images along with the How you bean- Lawn cuts and the Shaker Add On dies to assemble this jar. I sandwiched the jelly beans image and a small pile of sequins under a piece of tulle mesh. 

I also stamped out the images from the classic Chirpy Chirp Chirp set, using watercolor safe ink, and colored them with Zig clean color real brush markers. I’m still practicing how to color with these markers, but really like using the Zig real brush blender, as opposed to using a water brush or paintbrush. I used the coordinating lawn cuts to cut out my images and added small dot highlights. 

I adhered an inkblended sky with grassy layer over some coral patterned paper, then added my shaker and images. I popped my chicks up with some foam dots and even found a teeny “ peep” to fit in the small word bubble from the spring Say What critters set. I finished it off with a sparkly word die in the sky. Pretty Pink Posh released an adorable script Hoppy Easter die set that fit perfectly into my scene. And my little Taffy colored butterfly accented wonderfully! 

I hope you like this card as much as I do, and feel inspired to play along with our monthly color challenge. Simply use the 4 colors from the current BRI Moodboard and the hashtag #brimoodboard when you share your project to social media. We will randomly select a winner to receive $20 to the shop. Thank you so much for stopping by,

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
