Happy Fall Ya'll

Hello Crafty peeps!  I’m Jacquie and today is my first post as a member of the awesome Butterfly Reflections Ink Design Team!  I’m so honored, and excited to be here and I  can’t wait to share my creations with you every week!  A little about me - I’m married to my High School sweetheart, and we live in the Austin, Texas area with our 4 dogs.  I’ve been a paper crafter for 20 plus years and I love trying new things when it comes to card making. 

So, on to my card…today I’m sharing a card I made using a stamp set from a company that I have never used before.  I chose this adorable set from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps because it actually feels like fall here in Texas (well, it’s in the 80’s anyway).

I stamped the sweet little girl and basket of apples images on to some Copic friendly cardstock using the New Altenew Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink.  I colored the images and cut them out. 
I then cut a card panel with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die and then added a shaker window using a Die-namics Oval scalloped frame die.  I cut up some acetate for my shaker window and adhered it to the back.  I used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape  all the way around it and set it aside.  

I then cut two coordinating mats using the Lawn Fawn Knock On Wood 6x6 paper pad and positioned them together to make a card front.  I flipped over my shaker, added all my shaker bits and then put the mats on the back of the shaker.  I mounted that on to the A2 size card.  After that, I added my colored images from the Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp set.  I decided I needed a banner for my greeting, so I used Lawn Fawn Extra SentimentsBanner dies and stamped the Happy Fall Ya’ll Greeting on it.  

Well, that is it for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by - I'll be back in a few days!

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…
