Unicorns and Glitter with Davina

Hello my crafty friends. Davina here on the blog, and ready to bring some glittery spring happiness to your day. Normally I would be posting a card to promote the beautiful March Moodboard, and talk about the color challenge that we are hosting on my blog and on Instagram. But, I received my new MFT in the mail, and could not hesitate to use it! So Unicorns and Glitter it is! (I’ll have some Mood Board inspiration for you very very shortly!)


I adore the fun Unicorn headbands and ruffled dresses so much on the images and loaded them up in pastel colors and glitter. I stamped these cuties with my stamp platform, and colored them with Copic Markers. After die cutting with the coordinating Unicorns and Glitter Die-namics, I added small white dot highlights and tons of sparkly Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter pen to the images.

Next, I cut two panels of Bristol Smooth Cardstock using MFT wonky Stitched Frames. I trimmed one down using MFTs Grassy Fields Dies to create a grass layer 1 1/2 inches high. I inkblended my background onto these panels using Distress Oxide Inks in Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn. Then I splashed them with clean water and white ink.

I adhered my images using a combination of liquid Lawn Fawn Glue Tube and foam tape. Then, instead of getting out some sequins, I stamped the sparkle/stars with Peacock Feathers DistressOxide Ink and quickly heat embossed them with Wow Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder . I mounted my inky layer onto some textured Lavender cardstock, then the whole piece onto my card base using scor tape.

I love the final results and I feel like this came together rather quickly. Probably, because I was so excited to use these stamps. I hope that in these difficult times you take some time to create something lovely that makes you smile.

Thank you so much 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 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 …
