Hay There Sunshine with the Bri Moodboard

Hello crafty friends! Davina here, with fun farm filled slimline card. I used primarily Avery Elle stamps and dies for this project along with the bright spring colors of the March Bri Moodboard. This months Moodboard colors are sweet baby pink, sunshine yellow, spring green, and a clover green. The results we have seen so far have been wonderful.

To make this card I started by cutting my slimline layers using the Mama Elephant slim card basics. I cut the scalloped base from heavy white cardstock, and the stitched frame from Bristol Smooth. I cut a second stitched frame using some scrap green cardstock to make my grassy hills. I inkblended the white panel with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide (DO) from the top, and gently blended in some fabulous Kitsch Flamingo DO a few inches from the bottom. It made a gorgeous sky combination. I cut a hill and a grassy layer from the green card making sure it extended to the pink sky area, and inked the edges of the grass with Lucky Clover DO

Next, I stamped the fun hot air balloon from the Avery Elle Peek A Boo Balloon stamp set, and some adorable farm animals from the Peek A Boo Pets set. I also stamped the smiling sunshine from the new Avery Elle Sunshine stamp using the Squeezed Lemonade DO. I copic colored everything using colors from the Moodboard, and die cut with the coordinating dies. Along with some cute pierced clouds from the Cloud Mat Elements cover plate for my sky, I began to put my scene together. 

I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment across the grassy green paper using separate sentiments from 2 Lawn Fawn sets (All the Clouds, and Hay There), I adhered my grass to the bottom of my panel making sure to pop up the grassy piece with fun foam. After putting the sun in the upper corner I scattered my clouds evenly throughout the sky before placing the balloon over top. I tucked a little sheep into the ballon, and a small word bubble from the same Lawn Fawn Hay There stamp set. Behind my popped up grassy hill I tucked in the rest of my farm friends and their little feet on top.  The Avery Elle Peek A Boo sets are easily my favorite critters and one day I will use them all and not just collect them. 

To finish off my cute card, I added a few little wonky stars from the Peek A Boo Balloon set, and adhered my image panel to the scallop layer, then onto my cardbase.  Thank you so much for stopping by, and make sure to play along with the the March Bri Moodboard for your chance to win $20 to the Butterfly Reflections Ink 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

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
