Aloha, and welcome to Butterfly Reflections Ink!
This is Tanya from Studio 5380 with a bright, happy card to share with you today:

Aren't these colors fabulous?

I created my card background with some beautiful Distress Inks in the following colors:  Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin.  After blending my inks with a Mini Ink Blending Tool I spritzed the background with a bit of water.

This spunky little pineapple is from the Lawn Fawn stamp set "Aloha".  I colored her with my Copic Markers then used the Aloha Lawn Cuts to die cut my image.

To give this cutie some cool shades, I inked up some white cardstock with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink before stamping the shades from the Aloha stamp set.  Die cutting the shades with the coordinating dies created that fun, hot pink edge! 

I used the Scripty Aloha Lawn Cuts die to cut out the word "aloha" 3 times and adhered the layers together before adding it to my card.  I added a little sparkle to the sentiment and pineapple with a bit of Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker.  And, for a finishing touch, I scattered a few sequins from the Pink Lemonade Sequin Mix by Neat and Tangled.  I adhered my sequins with some Multi Medium Matte and added a drop of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Carnation to the center of each sequin.

And, that about wraps things up for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by today - 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…
