Miss You with Avery Elle and the Bri Moodboard

Hello my inky fingered friends! Davina here with some Bri Moodboard inspiration. I created a really fun slimline card using some brand new Avery Elle stamps and dies, along with some older sets, and a Heffy Doodle word die.

I was so excited for the latest Avery Elle release and I can’t wait to use all of the goodies I purchased from Butterfly Reflection Ink. On this card I used only two stamp and die sets, the Peek-a-boo Flight and an older Peek-a-boo set called Peek-a-boo Jungle. I stamped the airplane, banner, and clouds from the Flight set. And the adorable zebra and banner from the jungle set. I colored my images with copic markers in February BRIMoodboard colors and cut out the images using the coordinating dies. I added small white dot highlights then got to work on my background. 

I found some black and white small plaid paper in my enormous paper stash, so I thought it would be cute to combine it with an inky panel using the new and amazing Distress Oxide color called Kitsch Flamingo. If you like to use pink it is definitely a must have perfect shade of pink. I cut my slimline layers using Lawn Fawn Stitched Slimline dies then blended my lovely new flamingo pink ink onto some Bristol smooth cardstock. I inked heavier around the edges leaving a softer lighter area in the center. Then I splattered with water, glittery perfect pearls, and pink, white, & silver inks. 

I used a cursive shadow word die from a Heffy Doodle that says “miss you” and cut the shadow layer from bright white cardstock, and the actual words from silver sparkle cardstock. I mounted this in the center of my panel. I used a piece of silver thread to connect my airplane and waving banner together, then  glued it across the scene in the center. I surrounded it with little puffy clouds. These few larger images filled up most of my available space, so I don’t have to spend a ton of time coloring and creating lots of little scenic areas. It was very nice for a change, yay for me haha. 

Finally, I adhered my image panel onto a black layer, then onto my patterned paper layer, it’s really nice to have that extra visual oomph when working with a limited color board, then onto my card base. I really love how this turned out and can’t wait to mail it out. Don’t forget you can still play along with us by using the colors of the current BRI Moodboard and the hashtag #brimoodboard. We will randomly select a winner to receive $20 to the shop! Hope to see your card 😊

Thank you so much for stopping by, Davina

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
