Thank You Fairy Much with Audrey

Hi there!  Audrey here with a whimsical fairy card to share with you!  As soon as I saw the new Pixie Dust set by Avery Elle, I knew I had to have it!  There is something so sweet and charming about these images... something magical, even for grownups. :)

I knew I wanted to make a purple card... I don't know what it is lately, because purple isn't usually a color that I reach for often, but in the last little while, I can't seem to get enough!  I started off with a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper, and I diecut it with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die.  Then I used an ink blending tool and lilac Distress ink, starting off in the center of the panel, and blending it out lighter as I neared the edges of the paper.  I stamped, colored and fussy cut out the fairy and a bunch of clouds from the same stamp set.  I adhered the bigger clouds flat to the panel, and popped the fairy and smaller clouds up with foam tape.  Magical fairies need glittery wings, so I squeezed a little bit of Stickles on my finger, and rubbed it onto her wings.  When they were dry, I bent them lightly forward to add a bit more dimension.  I stamped a scattering of stars on a diagonal, and finally, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set underneath the clouds.

Thank you fairy much

That's all for me today!  Be sure to check back again tomorrow for more inspiration from the design team!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

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…
