BRI Moodboard Inspiration with Davina

Hello crafty friends! Davina here with an interactive card using the April BRI Moodboard colors. I used tons of Lawn Fawn Goodies including the new Swish N Pop Pulltab die to make this shooting star shoot across the violet sky. 


I don’t use my segmented frame dies as often as I’d like to, yet I continue purchasing them from multiple companies. So for this fun card I not only used my Peek A Boo Background frame, but I also designed a way to hide the pull tab mechanism on the lower half of the card, while leaving the upper segments intact. 

I began by cutting the background frame die from textured white cardstock, then I cut two A2 sized panels from Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I inkblended one panel from light blue to a soft violet, then splattered with water, perfect pearls, and gold ink. I cut a strip of citrus colored cardstock with the Grassy Hillside Border Dies for the bottom segments, and inked a darker Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides onto the grass. 


I stamped the unicorns and clouds from two sets, A Little Sparkle and Unicorn Picnic. I also stamped some images from Super star and Hay There. I colored everything with copic markers in the colors from the April Bri Moodboard and cut out with the coordinating dies.  

Before assembling any scenes, I cut my inkblended panel in half lengthwise where the stitched frame would cover. I adhered the grass to the lower half of my inky panel, then I adhered that bottom half behind my frame. On the second un-inked A2 panel, I assembled my pull tab following the LawnFawn YouTube video. After playing with the mechanism I decided on the 2nd hole from the right. I carefully adhered my violet sky piece on that panel, under the swinging arm. 


I carefully added narrow extra deep Heffy Doodle foam Tape, which is the best for interactive cards, as it is deeper than normal foam tape. It doesn’t require doubling up and comes in two widths. I taped all around the card except where the tab would extend. 

Finally I adhered the cloudy images behind the frame before lining it up and carefully putting the frame on top of the tape.  I glued down my cute critters and additional images before finishing it off with a few stars that wouldn’t interfere with the shooting star. 

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you play along with the spring April color challenge, there is still a week to enter your project for a chance to win on IG @brimoodboardchallenge account.

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

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

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
