Shadow Stamping Birthday Card

Hey Everyone, its Trish here today sharing a project with you all!

This card was created for MFT Camp Create Day #5 which was all about shadow stamping.  This card features my new favorite stamp set from MFT "Make a Wish" and a ton of Lawn Fawn Ink.

I like to call this type of card a One Hit Wonder Card; in that you only need 1 stamp set to create the whole card.  I love challenging myself to create cards using only one stamp set, it makes me stretch my stamps little further.


I'm starting out with a 5.5"x5.5" base to create a card big enough to fit all of the candle on my card and my kraft card stock measures 5.25" x 5.25".  Before stamping the candles, I marked with a pencil the half way points on each side of my craft card stock so that my candles would be spaced out evenly.  Using my Tim Holtz Scissors, I performed some stamp surgery and separated one of the candles from its group.  I then began stamping my candles in Lawn Fawn Yeti Ink, first starting at the top and bottom and stamping in a fan of stamps at the top and bottom of my card stock.  Then doing the same with the flame for the candles.

Once I had finish stamping all of the images in Yeti ink, I went in and started to stamp the colors over the candles but slightly offset.  You'll see when I was trying to line them up, I was pretty off on most of the candles.  The candle that came out the best looking was the light purple but we're always learning something, right? haha.  Rainbow order was the color scheme I decided for my candles and all of the inks are from Lawn Fawn.  In Rainbow Order: Lobster, Plastic Flamingo, Fake Tan, Sunflower, Jalapeño, Merman, Fish Tank, Deep Sea, Fresh Lavender, and Sugarplum.   And for the flames, I'm stamping first in Sunflower and then just rocking the bottom of the flame in Pumpkin Spice to add a little dimension to the flame.


Once I finished with the candles, I worked on the sentiment.  I decided that I wanted it to really stand out from the colorful background, so I went with some Ranger Super Fine Detailed White Embossing Powder on black card stock and attached it with some foam adhesive.

The last thing that I did to my card was applied some Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend Sequins with some Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive and brushed some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear on the flame.

And that completes my card!  I really hope that you guys enjoyed this card and that it gave you another view on this technique.  Maybe you'll try it out!

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…
