Hello crafty friends! Davina here on the blog with an Easter filled slimline card featuring the new Doodlebug Collection Hippity Hoppity. I’m a longtime fan of Doodlebug Designs, and don’t use them nearly as much as I want to. This cute card has the adorable bunnies racing to the egg hunt. I used the March BRI Moodboard colors as inspiration for my color choices, although I did have to add some orange for the carrot car. 

I began this creating the card by stamping almost every image from Hippity Hoppity. I also pulled out a few additional sets for additional tree shapes. I used Winter Wonderland  Forest Friends, and Pumpkin Spice Forest Friends for the tree as well the bees and ladybug. I colored everything up using my copic markers and color combos the match the BRI Moodboard, then cut  the images using the coordinating dies. 

To build my scene I cut two paper layers (white Bristol smooth & grassy green colored cardstock)  using Lawn Fawn Small Slimline with Left the Flaps. I cut the green paper into two pieces using some Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders. I inked the edges of my grassy hillsides with Ranger Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink. Then I made a cloudy pink sky using the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil and Ranger Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink. I went with the more rose colored ink since I used the orange for the carrot card. In this way, I tried to incorporate the color so it didn’t stick out. 

I adhered my images using a variety of glues and even popped several images (carrot racer & bees) up onto fun foam, for a fun 3D effect. Once assembled I used my glittery Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle to the bugs and flower centers. I mounted this image panel onto a yellow striped piece of Doodlebug pattern paper, then onto a bright white layer that I cut with the largest Lawn Fawn Slimline with Sliders Die. I love having the stitched details on all of my layers so I take the extra time to make sure that I use the stitched dies for all of my layers. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see your cards using color inspiration from the monthly Moodboard. Each month we select a random winner to receive $20 to the Butterfly Reflection Ink shop. Simply share your card using the hashtag #brimoodboard for your chance to win

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
