I've Always Looked Up To You | My Favorite Things

Hi Friends!  Kari here with you today, and since we just celebrated Mother's Day here in the States yesterday, I thought this card would be appropriate, although this isn't technically a Mother's Day card.  I think this images in this Giraffing Me Crazy MFT set are so sweet!

I started off my card with the popular Cloud Stencil from MFT, and inked up a piece of smooth white card stock with Broken China Distress Oxide ink.  Then, I took the Peek-a-boo Square Die-namics, and die cut it twice from the white card stock as well as some older 6x6 paper from Lawn Fawn.  

I set that aside to work on my giraffe images.  I stamped it with some Jet Black from Lawn Fawn since it is a Copic friendly ink.  I colored in my images very simply using my Copics in E34, E37 and Y21.  I also stamped out some leaf clusters and used YG67 and YG17.  

I die cut my images with the coordinating Giraffing Me Crazy Dies.  I played with the layout a bit, and started to assemble my elements.  I used liquid adhesive since it gave me some time to put into place where I wanted all of my images.  Once, I was happy with all of the placement, I adhered my main panel onto an A2 white card base with the same liquid adhesive.  

I stamped my sentiment on the inside of my card since there really wasn't a good place on the outside, and I chose the "I've always looked up to you" sentiment.  I had one leaf cluster left and added it to the inside as well!

For a final touch, I thought adding some red hearts would be a nice pop of color!!

Thank you for popping in today and hope your Monday is a happy one!  See you soon!

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…
