Holiday mood board inspiration with Jane!

Hi Friends!  I'm sharing this fun magic iris card featuring colors from the month's mood board. 

To start, I lightly ink blended a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using a large blending tool and ocean breeze ink from Pinkfresh Studio.  Next, using the snow globe add on die, I cut the outer portion of the snow globe.  The Magic iris die was used to assemble the rest of the pieces for the snow globe.
Let it shine paper and gold metallic cardstock used to cut the bottom elements of the snow globe and then the assembled globe was set aside.

The background was cut using the fancy scalloped rectangles die from metallic gold cardstock.  Stitched windy backdrop die was used to cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock inked with sparkling rose.  I then used the stitched rectangle die  to cut the piece for a more finished look.  The background pieces were adhered together using liquid glue.

Next, images from frosty fairy friends were stamped using black copic friendly ink and colored using copic markers.  I stamped the trees from cherry christmas using evergreen ink.  I added accents to the images by using a white gel pen.

The snowglobe was added to the card using double sided tape.  The sentiment inside is from frosty fairy friends.  Next, using a mix of glue and foam tape, the images were adhered to the card front.  Nuvo gel drops in white blizzard added to the tops of the mushrooms, berries and fairy wings for extra sparkle!

The entire card was adhered to an A2 card base and that completes the card!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Hope you will join us this month for a chance to win $20 gift certificate to Butterfly Reflections Ink!  Be sure to tag #BRImoodboard on instagram and upload your images to Davina's blog.

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
