November mood board inspiration with Jane

 Hi Friends!  I'm back again sharing some mood board inspiration for you!  Check out the beautiful colors on this month's mood board.  

Honestly, I struggled with this one a bit.  These colors represent a tetradic color scheme, and are often difficult to put together without becoming overwhelming.  I choose to find balance by using an equal amount of each color on my card.  Everything was bound together by using gold highlights, since gold seemed to fit in nicely with each color on the mood board.  

To start, I masked off an A2 size of Bristol smooth cardstock on top and bottom using post-it tape.  Next, I ink blended the following distress oxide inks (left to right): mustard seed, abandoned coral, evergreen bough, wilted violet.  Next, I used the happy trails stencil by simple stories to ink in the forest background.  Distress Inks used from left to right: fossilized amber, picked raspberry, lucky clover and seedless preserves.  Then, I removed the mask and adhered a small strip of American crafts gold glitter cardstock at the top and bottom of the panel.  Sentiment from forest feast stamp set was white heat embossed at the center of my card with help from my mini Misti.

Next, I stamped the images using black copic friendly ink onto Neehah 110lb cardstock.  Images are from the following sets: forest feast (food), let's go nuts (leaves), mom and me (tree stump), crazy antics (mice).  

All images were colored using the following copics:

Mice: E31, E30, E000, R20 on checks

Dinnerware: V06, V05, RV63

Leaves: R24, R14, R02, Y19, Y06, G19, BG23, G02

The images were cut using the coordinating dies and adhered using foam tape.  Next, I used a quickie glue pen to add small dots to the scene behind the mice and to the heart on the tree stump.  Gold deco foil was then pressed down on the tacky glue to create the gold dots and heart.  The frame was cut using the largest reverse stitched scalloped rectangle frames from white cardstock and adhered using foam tape.  The entire card was glued to an A2 card base, and that completes the card!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Wishing you and your family a very happy thanksgiving!  Be sure to tag us at #BRImoodboard and upload your creations to Davina's blog for a chance to win $20 to the Butterfly Reflections Ink store!

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
