Video Tutorial - Lawn Fawn - Costume Party

Hi everyone! :)  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections, Ink and I'm super excited to share a fun  Halloween card with you all today using some brand new Lawn Fawn products and Distress Oxide inks.  I created a video tutorial of how I created today's card and you can view that here:
(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:



To create the background, I used the following Distress Oxide inks: Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink, Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink, Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink, and Black Soot Distress Oxide ink.  I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to blend my ink colors together to create a fun night sky for trick or treating :) I added some white stars to the background with my Gansai Tambi watercolor paints
I then stamped out all my images from the adorable Costume Party Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn.  I painted all of the images with my Zig markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I then cut the images out using the Coordinating Costume Party Dies.  I then used the new Birch Trees Dies from Lawn Fawn to cut some trees out of black cardstock for a fun spooky Halloween feel.  I also cut out some grass using some green cardstock and the Grassy Hillside Border Dies from Lawn Fawn.  I then put my scene together by adhering the trees and grass straight to the night sky panel using regular adhesive.  I then adhered all the images to the scene using foam tape and then adhered the entire panel to an A2 sized notecard using foam tape. 

For a finishing touch, I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to add some sparkle to the pumpkins and candy bowl.  I also added some sequins from my stash.  Make sure to head over to Butterfly Reflections, Ink for a look at these and all sorts of amazing products.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Big Hugs!

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…
