Three Tone Ice Cream with Oxide Inks!


Hello Everyone and thank you so much for stopping by today! This Yummy Card was inspired by an ice cream my kids love! It is called "Rainbow Ice Cream" they can combine 3 of their favorite flavors in one cone!  While I was there inspiration hit me to create this fun card for you today!


I started making some tests with different inks, and I found the results you get with Oxide Inks are fantastic and very bright, even when mixing very different colors.


CARD DETAILS: I started with the ice cream layers on my MISTI Tool, for the first layer I used Lawn Fawn ink Ballet Slippers I stamped it twice, for the second layer I used Distress Oxide Ink Broken China for cone #1 and for cone #2 I used Distress Oxide Ink Cracked Pistachio also double stamped, and for the 3rd layer I used Distress Oxide Ink Wilted Violet, because this is the most vibrant color it looks great as the last layer! for the cones I used Lawn Fawn Ink Doe.

                            

For the base I die cut the largest from the Dienamics Double Stitched Rectangle Stax and blended the same Oxide Ink colors starting with Wilted Violet, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio they blend beautifully and without any problem you can mix any colors together, I added some water flicks for a more fun look and heat embossed the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad and Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder, I also ink blend the right corner of the card base with Lawn Fawn Ink Ballet Slippers.  Finally I put some Nuvo Crystal drops Apple GreenBubblegum Blush and Caribbean Ocean.


I hope you can be inspired to use your Oxide Inks and mix colors! Remember that the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop still has the HUGE STAMP DIE SALE don't miss the opportunity to get some great products at incredible prices!

Have a wonderful day!

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…
