Flamingo Floatie

Hi friends!  Kari with you today to start off your Monday and Week with some Flamingo Floatie fun!!

OK - can we talk about how adorable this set is from Neat and Tangled?!!   Everything about it is just adorable!  I love the expression on the little girl's face, and the over all way she is illustrated!  And, You can resist a flamingo floatie!  We are officially in Summer, and even though it is not my favorite season, ( not a fair skin girl's best friend), I still can't help love this set and how much it screams Summer!  The minute I saw it revealed, I knew I had to have it in my stamp collection!!

I started out by simply stamping out this adorable image onto a piece of smooth white card stock, and colored it in with my Copic Markers.  Since some of you like to reference exactly what markers were used, here is a breakdown - Skin - E11, E13 - Hair E18 and E37 - Flamingo - R02, R22, and R11, Bathing Suit - B24 and BV04, and white gel pen for the accents.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out my image as well the water underneath the floatie.  There is a stamp image for the water, but I just used the die as well as some pattern paper from the Sunshiny Days 6x6.  You've seen this paper pad used by me quite a bit.  That flamingo pattern paper also comes from the same pad!  It went perfectly with my card today I think!!  I die cut both the flamingo paper and the blue plaid ( from Lawn Fawn) with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables.  

I simply adhered both pattern papers straight down onto my white card base, and popped up my main images with some foam adhesive to give this design some dimension.  For my sentiment, I die cut a piece of white card stock with a banner die, and stamped out the sentiment from the same set using Lawn Fawn Jet Black and Bubblegum ink, and also popped up my sentiment strip with foam adhesive.  For a final touch I added some shimmer with the Wink of Stella clear pen.  

Such a fun little set!!  Thanks for stopping in today!!  Have a great week!!

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…
