November Moodboard with Davina

 Hello Crafty Friends. Davina here with a little BRI Moodboard inspired card today. The November colors  Amanda chose are very easy to play with. Harvest Yellow, Clay Pink, BlackBerry, and Rich Teal make up the quartet of color this month.  

The project I’m sharing today is using a few sets from Paperie Ink. I’m very new to this brand and purchased a few seasonal sets last month. I didn’t have a chance to use them sooner, but I’m so loving how cute these characters are. I combined the stamp sets  Autumn is Calling and Happy Holi-yay, along with Lawn Fawns Meadow Backdrop Die. I stamped all of my images with Momento Rich Cocoa ink and copic colored everything using light and dark shades of this months colors. 

Since there are no coordinating dies for these stamp sets, I had to use the scan n cut. Which worked fine considering I’m never going to fussy cut this many images. I recommend always cutting out before you color you images. The Scan n cut is notorious for mis-reading an image, and therefore not cutting out properly. As for images like the trees, that have small gaps in the outline, use a pencil to fill in the space for a solid cut. It will read the pencil, along with the ink, and cut out the image cleanly. 

Once my images were cut and colored I cut the Meadow Backdrop from some yellow Cardstock and inked the grassy edges with Scattered Straw & Dried Marigold Distress Oxide Inks. Next, I inkblended a pink and purple sky using several colors of Oxide Ink onto white Bristol Smooth Cardstock, then splattered with water, and white and gold ink. Once dry I heat embossed my sentiment onto the sky using Lawn Fawn Gold Embossing Powder

I assembled my card by glueing the Meadow frame onto my inkblended panel, then adhering the trees and sunflowers behind the grassy layers. I popped my border image up with some narrow foam tape, and added the remainder of my images. I brushed some glittery Clear Wink of Stella onto my lights and pumpkins for a little “razzle dazzle”. I’m so happy with how cute these images are and already ordered a few more sets to build my collection of Paperie Ink stamps. 

I hope you like this card and take the time to use the November #BRIMoodboard this month. As always, we will have a color challenge and choose someone to win $20 to the shop.

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
