BRI Moodboard inspiration with Davina

 Hello crafty friends! Davina here on the blog, with a super sweet filled card using Mama Elephants stamps and dies and the wonderful January BRI Moodboard colors. 

I know this card could easily be a sweet filled valentine or friendship card, but I needed a birthday card and it works perfectly. Not being a cake lover myself, I often want different delights when it is my turn to celebrate. And all everything on this card looks yummy enough to eat! 

I have so many incredible Mama Elephant stamp sets that I haven’t used yet so I felt it was time to pop them open and get coloring. The images in the newer Milkshake Stamp Set are so cute and large, that I didn’t need to combine them with any other sets to create a full scene. I stamped all of the images using the Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf Ink for a nice light brown outline. I color everything in shades of Pink, mint, navy blue, and rosy tan earth color to represent the rose gold. 

I use the coordinating die cuts to cut out my images then highlighted them with small white dots. I used the framed Waverly die set from Mama Elephant to cut the pink scalloped frame, then I cut a smaller panel from white Bristol Smooth Cardstock that fit inside the stitched area. I inked that panel with Tattered Rose  Distress Oxide Ink and splattered with glittery Perfect Pearl, white ink, and Rose Gold Watercolor. 

I mounted the inkblended layer onto some glittery cardstock, then assembled all of my images onto the scene. Then I mounted the layers onto the scallop frame. I used some beautiful mint cardstock to make my cardbase and centered the scallop scene onto the mint card. I searched for a small little sentiment to place in the center area, and eventually fount the perfect sized one in my Lawn Fawn stash. I stamped the speech bubble and sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Love Letters stamp set  using crunchy leaf and a navy ink. 

I really just can’t believe how versatile these colors are and easy they are to use for a variety of images. All of the products are available on the Butterfly Reflections Ink website and there are still a few days to play along and post you card using the Moodboard colors.

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
