You’re Sweet with the BRI Moodboard by Popsiclesticks

Hello crafty friends. Davina here on the blog, and today I’m sharing another fun card using the fabulous February Moodboard. It is bright and full of cheery images and lots of cherries too! There is still plenty of time for you to head over to my earlier Color Challenge  Blog Post,  and enter your card using the inlinkz button, for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Butterfly Reflections Ink online store. 

 




I’ve  been on a mission to use all the adorable mice sets from Waffle Flower Crafts that I purchased this fall and these ice cream eating cuties from the Sweet Ice Cream  set have been calling my name! I also find myself wanting to try different styles of cards lately, and I always love the mini scenes that story board dies create, and since I have rarely used mine, I thought it was time to get it out.

I started by cutting some rich red card stock with my Lawn Fawn Peekaboo Backdrop and cutting it again from some Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I used some bright lime green scraps of cardstock to cut some little grassy hills using the Grassy Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts. I trimmed them to be the same size as the little squares. Next, I inkblended spun sugar and picked raspberry distress oxide inks onto each square of Bristol Smooth cardstock. I splattered with clean water, white ink, and silver ink, then glued down the little grass strips on the squares.

Next, I stamped all of my images using grey River Rock Ink from Lawn Fawn, then colored them in using shads of pink, raspberry, red, and gray. After die cutting the images I highlighted them with tiny small white dots. I placed the die cut squares back into the white frame and secured from behind wit washi tape. Then I carefully glued the red frame over the top, using liquid glue. I adhered my images into the spaces then decided to add a few more images from the Waffle Flower Grow Happiness stamp set. I used a couple of small flowers and the cutie holding some tulips to fill in some of the empty spaces. I heat embossed you’re sweet into a gray cardstock word bubble and added a heart.

Once everything was in place, I finished off the design by adding a sprinkling of silver sequins and tiny stars. I had originally cit the letters fro the word sweet from silver cardstock for the front, but it was difficult to see, so I decided to add them into the card, along with the sentiment from the stamp set, “You’re as sweet as Ice Cream”.

Make sure you head over to my earlier post and link your card using the inlinkz button to enter my color challenge. Thank you for dropping in,
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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 will work the same.  It&#…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …
