YOU Make Me Happy

Hi there and welcome to Butterfly Reflections Ink!
This is Tanya from Studio 5380 and I'm here to share this bright, happy card with you today:

I love the colors on this card - it just reminds me of the perfect summer day!

To get started, I inked up a piece of white cardstock using Distress Oxides in Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers.  I spritzed a few water drops onto my inked cardstock so that the Distress Oxides could do their magic.  Once dry, I cut a square for my card base and used the Die-namics You Trio from My Favorite Things to cut out the word "YOU".

I cut out the word "YOU" three times and layered them together to create a bit of dimension.

Next, I created this fun, sunshiney layer:

I inked up a slightly smaller square of white cardstock using the Radiating Rays Stencil from My Favorite Things and Distress Inks in Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade

I added a bit Scotch Foam Tape on the back of my letters to pop them up on my card.  Next, I stamped my sentiment from the All About You stamp set onto a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed it with some White Ranger Embossing Powder.  After adhering my sentiment, I added some yellow sequins from the Pink Lemonade Sequin Mix by Neat and Tangled.

And, there you go!
Thank you so much for stopping by today - I'll see you soon!


  1. Love the "YOU" die cut! It's so Bold on the card and looks fantastic on top of that ray of sunshine background... Awesome, Happy Card! :)

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…
