Sending Sunshine Sunflowers

Happy Saturday everyone! It’s Jacquie, back again to share a pretty fall floral card.  Sunflowers are some of my favorite flowers.  I love a bouquet of them in my house, it just feels so welcoming.

My card today is deceptively simple and easy to make.    I stamped this pretty Sunflower image from StrawberryJude Stamps  on a 4 x 5 ¼ piece of white cardstock, using the new Copic friendly ink from Altenew.  This ink is my new favorite ink for alcohol based markers.  It stamps perfect, dark and crisp every time!  I colored the Sunflower with my Copic markers.  I used the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges dies from My Favorite things to create a pretty edge at the top of my card. 

I took an A2 sized piece of Kraft cardstock and put it in my MISTI tool. I stamped the Sunflower image on the edge of my Kraft Cardstock, and then inserted the colored card panel in the MISTI and stamped it a second time so that it would line up from the kraft cardstock on to the white panel.  I stamped around a few sides this way.  I used Altenew Limestone crisp ink, because it is a great neutral to go with this card.  Once I carefully lined up my top stamped layer with my base stamped layer, I glued them together.

I cut a banner using the Lawn Fawn banner die out of white cardstock, and then I colored it with a Copic marker.  Once the ink was good and dry, I stamped the “Sending you Sunshine” greeting on the banner and then adhered it to the card. 
I finished off my card using a few of these droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s it for today!  Be sure to click on the links to find all the products I used.

Have a great weekend!

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…
