Sending Hugs

Hi Friends!  I'm back sharing more mood board inspiration using a mix of products from Avery Elle.  I pulled out my "stash" and decided to use some products that had been sitting in my craft room for quite a long time.  Do you raid your "stash" from time to time and use your older stamps and dies on cards? 

To start this card, I ink blended a background using distress oxide inks evergreen bough, peacock feathers and antique linen.  The panel was splattered with water and left to dry.

Next, lavender cardstock was cut using the Cloud mat die.  A few of the cloud pieces were inked in green to look like foliage and the rest were inked in purple.  Next, a piece of white cardstock was used to cut the wonky square frame.  Woodgrain backdrop stamp used to stamp a piece of brown cardstock to create the "log," I used the Avery elements dot border die set to add a dotted pattern to the top of the log.

 I stamped the image from Polar peek-a-boo pals stamp using memento tuxedo ink in rich cocoa and colored it using copics.  The image was cut using the coordinating die.  White gel pen used for accents on the images.

Sentiment is from the Sending you stamp set by Avery Elle.  I white heat embossed it before adhering the rest of the elements.  Foam tape used to prop up the white frame, log and bear.  The rest of the card elements were adhered using liquid glue.  The front panel was adhered to a piece of violet cardstock and then adhered to a white A2 cardbase.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hoping you will join the June mood board challenge this month.  Be sure to tag us on instagram #BRImoodboard and link to Davina's blog to win a $20 gift certificate to Butterfly Reflections Ink.

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

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
