Adventure This Way

 Happy Friday, Everyone! It's Allison here, and I am sharing a slimline card using a really fun stamp set from MFT called Adorable Adventures, which is available in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink online shop.

The inspiration for this card, aside from all of the super-cute images in this stamp set, was the October BRI mood board. Isn't it simply gorgeous? It's hard not to be inspired by it. Make sure you play along with the mood board challenge by tagging your creations on Instagram with #brimoodboard for a chance to win a $20 credit to the shop.
For my card, I first started by cutting a piece of kraft card stock with the Mama Elephant Slim Card Basics dies. This created the panel with the three windows. I then cut a slightly smaller piece of white card stock and placed it behind the window panel so that I could figure out where to line up the mountains. I used the two mountain stamps from the set and stamped the mountain range with a little bit of help from some masking paper. I colored the mountains and the sunset with Copic markers. Using two different shades of green card stock, I created the grass using MFT's Slimline Grassy Hills die.

I stamped the main images onto Copic-friendly card stock and then colored with my markers. I used the matching dies to cut them out, along with a couple layers of plain white card stock to give them dimension. I mounted the main panel onto a slightly larger piece of orange card stock and then onto a 3.5"x8.5" card base. I also selected a complementary sentiment to stamp on the inside of the card, along with a few other images from the set. 
And that's it for my card today. Thanks for joining me, and I hope you also find inspiration from the mood board. Wishing you all a crafty day!

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
