Head in the clouds card...

Hello crafty friends! This is Kristy and today I'm here to show you a quick and cute card I made using one of the Butterfly Reflections ink exclusive stamp sets, Head in the clouds stamp set.

This weekend I attended a very fun event with lots of crafty celebrities and goodies! One of the teachers was the fabulous, Paula Cheney! She brought a TON of Tim Holtz products and gifts for us!!! One of the techniques in her class included the mini distress ink pads and blending tool, and she encouraged me to get mine out and use them with stencils! So that's what started the inspiration for this card! Here's a picture of some of our group with Paula (1st on the left, and I'm the 2nd to last on the right):
Here's what I used:
Head in the Clouds stamp set
Multi Medium Matte
Super Fine Silver Embossing powder
Ranger Mini Ink Blending foam and brushes
TH Mini Distress Inks, Peacock Feathers
Paper Smooches Spectrum Dies
TCW Mini Clouds stencil
VersaMark ink (I used this instead of versafine, which is in the picture)
Glitter fun foam
Water and a paintbrush

First, I cut the card base and then taped off the top, and taped down the stencil. I LOVE clouds! ;)
I used Peacock Feathers and a mini distress tool with this cool stencil. Small circular strokes work the best!
Then, I used a paint brush and water to flick some water droplets onto the distress ink clouds. I love how the water repels the ink and it gives a soft watercolor type of look!

Next, I used my Cuttlebug to cut out some small cloud shapes with the Spectrum dies, using glitter fun foam!

I positioned my puffy clouds and the stamp on the card. Then I embossed the sentiment, added the clouds, and embellished with some sequins using my favorite adhesive, Ranger's Multi Medium Matte!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you pop on over to the shop and pick up these goodies before they are GONE! ;) -Kristy

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 will work the same.  It&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
