Thank You, Really.

Hey there, crafty friends!

I definitely have mixed feelings about today's post. I'm excited to be bringing you another card, but it's my last post as a design team member for Butterfly Reflections, Ink. I've really enjoyed my time on the design team, and I'm really grateful to Vanessa to give me the chance! So this card is dedicated to her!

I started out by using the My Favorite Things Sketchy Flowers stamp set to stamp out some floral images on some plain white cardstock using my favorite black ink. I then stamped in the filler images using peach and green Hero Arts dye inks.

After I had covered the entire card panel with the floral images, I used the My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die to cut a decorative edge across the panel. I also used the same peach ink and swiped it across a scrap piece of cardstock and used the same die to cut an additional color-coordinated piece to layer underneath the floral piece.

I adhered the floral and coordinating peach pieces to each other and then adhered it to a card base. I then used a sentiment from a My Favorite Things stamp set that is now retired, but any thank you sentiment would have totally looked great on this card design! I recommend the My Favorite Things All Occasion stamp set with a card design like this because you can use it for any and all occasions!

This was a simple card that was so much fun to create, and I plan to incorporate this type of layout for many future cards!

Again, many thanks to Vanessa for giving me the chance to share some of my creations with you, and thank YOU, readers, for all of your support and kindness!

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…
