A-Maze-ing Birthday!

Hi friends!  Welcome back to the BRI Blog!  Kari with you, and I wanted to share this interactive birthday card featuring some fun products from My Favorite Things!  Who doesn't love a fun interactive birthday card, or just an interactive card in general?!

This set from MFT is awesome, and to pair it up with the fun Maze Shapes which you can also purchase in black, shaker pouches, and then add one of the Maze Spheres, you can quickly create a fun element on a card!!



To start my card, I created my background with some Distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral, and Picked Raspberry, and the smaller panel with Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean.  

For the panel for the maze, I die cut it with the largest of the Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Square Tags die set.  To create my frame for my maze element I used the MFT Circle Shaker Window die set with some Ciltrano card stock.



My tip when assembling the Maze element is to use very strong adhesive like some double sided adhesive.  I found that using regular tape runner or glue won't hold your element together.  

For my sentiment, I wanted to have a bright white sentiment to compliment the maze shape, so I white heat embossed my sentiment from the same You're A-Maze-ing stamp set!


I like making interactive cards that are not too difficult, and this one fits that bill!!  

See you all soon!
Kari

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…
