July Mood Board

Hello there! And happy summer! I have to say, I am pretty excited about this month's mood board! Even though I look over previous mood boards and see a variety over color combinations I start to feel like I am using the same colors over and over. And I feel like I use pink a lot. This month is a fun, summery, vibrant mood board that just makes me happy!

Neon Yellow, Aquamarine, Teal & Chartreuse

I seriously love these colors and my layout photos are not really doing it justice. My colors are a little off on my photos and it's driving me crazy. The yellow watercolor is definitely closer to neon in person and is it just me or are these pictures looking gray? Ah the joys of blogger!

I have so many wonderful embellishments in my stash that I decided not to even use paper on this layout other than my background. Speaking of which, I finally broke in to my Gansai watercolors and O.M.G. it's LOVE!

The Fancy Free collection matched so well with the colors. The puffy stickers from that line may just be my favorite ever!

Supplies used: Gansai Tambi Watercolor, Fancy Free Puffy Stickers, Fancy Free Tags, Fancy Free Wood Veneer, Felicity Sequin Studio Puffs, Fruitalicious Enamel Stickers, Embossing Paste, Scattered Bars Stencil,

I hope this inspires you to create some fun layouts! As always, we love to see what you create! You can comment below with a link to your project, share on Instagram using #BRImoodboard or post in the new Butterfly Reflections Ink FB group!

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
