Mothers Day Bri Moodboard Inspiration

Hello crafty friends! Davina here on the blog with fun Mothers Day card I created using some wonderfully  tropical products in the shop, and the May BRI Moodboard colors. All of the items I used are in stock at the Butterfly Reflections Ink website. 

Once again Amanda had gifted us a beautiful Moodboard to inspire our creativity. Rose Water, Aurora Magenta, Marine Green, and Tropic Canary. The jewel tones of this months colors scream tropics to me, so I made a tropical scene. That amazing
Fantastic Fronds  slimline cover plate is from Trinity Stamps, and I only used one, small yet mighty, cute stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh called Tropical Toucans

I used some heavy weight cardstock to make my slimline base for my card. Next, I cut the 4 inch remaining piece of cardstock with my Fantastic Fronds  slimline coverplate. On a piece of 3.5 X 8.5 Bristol Smooth Cardstock I blended Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn, and Twisted Citron Distress oxide inks. I gave them a little splatter with clean water, white ink, and green ink then put aside to dry. 

I stamped the adorable images from Tropical Toucans onto Neenah classic crest cardstock and colored with copic markers. After diecutting with the Tropical Toucans coordinating dies, I added small white dot highlights. I adhered the white die cut fronds on top of my inkblended panel, then arranged the branches and toucans on top. I decided to pop the toucans up with some die cut fun foam. 

For my sentiment, I used an older Lawn Fawn Scripty Mom Lawn Cuts die that I cut 4 times from cardstock. I used a piece of magenta cardstock that I had in my scrap bin for the top piece. Then I used a little sentiment strip from Toucan Do It, that I stamped onto a small banner with citron colored ink. I topped “mom” with a foam popped toucan and surrounded it with small flowers from the Tropical Toucans set. 

I finished this up with a few gold and iridescent sequins, and an inner sentiment that says “Happy Mothers Day!” I hope this jewel tones cutie inspires you to play along with the May color challenge for your chance to win $20 to the shop! Just use all 4 colors and the hashtag #brimoodboard 

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

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
