Little Witches with the BRI Moodboard

Hello crafty friends! Davina here, with a pun filled slimline card using Mama Elephant stamps and the July BRI Moodboard. The Moodboard this month is full of spicy warm colors like lilac, honey, poppy and mulberry. They gave me very bohemian vibes and I played around with several,ideas. Ultimately I decided to focus on the rich purple mulberry color as a nighttime sky, and the rest as supporting additions. 

I used all Mama Elephant products for this little slimline and everything is available in the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop. I started by inking up my nighttime sky. I cut the panel using the Mama Elephant Slim Basics stitched panel, then heavily inked the sky using Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet. I tried to create a long cloud stencil using the cloud die and some scrap cardstock, but I didn’t apply enough white ink to make it visible. Next time I will have to make sure I put enough “oomph” into that. 

From white cardstock, I cut some nice tall letters from the Whimsy Alphas letter dies, to spell the word witches. Then, applied them across the center of the panel. Next, I created my own sentiment using the cute Kissie Letters Stamp. I heat embossed the words onto black cardstock using LF White Embossing Powder. I added the dots after cutting banner using a stylus and white acrylic paint. I popped up the banner onto a strip of foam tape and centered in the lower area. 

After stamping several of the adorable Little Witch Agenda stamps images, I colored with copic markers, using colors from the July Moodboard. After die cutting using the coordinating dies, I added small white dot highlights. I arranged my images around the “witches” letters and popped each of the witches on a foam dot. I applied the pumpkins directly to the scene. 

For a little extra bling I added clear iridescent star glitter around the Little Witches, and it really gave some added sparkle to the sky. To finish it up, I cut the scallop slimline panel from purple cardstock. It wasn’t the same color as my sky, so I used the Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink to heavily ink around the edge, and it transformed the color perfectly match. I mounted it onto my cardbase and voila! It’s ready to gift. 

Don’t forget there is still time to play around with the July BRIMoodboard. Play along by using all four colors and the hashtag #brimoodboard for your chance to win $20 to the shop. 

Thank you,

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
