Booyah! Creating a fun Halloween Scene

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I'm so excited to share this fun Halloween care with you today.  I have created a video tutorial for my card today and if you are interested, you can view it here:

And here are some pictures of my card:

To create my card, I first cut out the tree scene using the awesome Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait Die from Lawn Fawn.  This die also comes in a Landscape Orientation as well.  I can't say enough good things about this die set.  It is so easy to create fun scenes and believe me, well worth the money :)  Anyway, I cut this out and then I created my starry night sky background using my Gansai Tambi Watercolor - 36 Color Set.  I next adhered my cute black picket fence (cut from the adorable Picket Fence Border Die from Lawn Fawn) to the watercolor night sky panel.  I then adhered the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait Die on top of the scene.  Next, I stamped my adorable ghosts and accessories from the Booyah Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn and then colored them with my Zig markers and my Detailer water brush.  I used the Booyah Coordinating Dies to cut everything out and then coated the ghosts with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  I then cut out the cat die from the Scalloped Treat Box Haunted House Add-On Die Set from Lawn Fawn and adhered him with Foam Tape to the card.  I added some eyes from the Doodlebug Eye Cand Shape Sprinkles for a fun touch.  I adhered my ghosts and accessories to the card with Foam Tape as well.  I then adhered the entire panel to an A2 sized card base with Foam Tape.  What do you think?

Well, that's from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
Hugs, Christine

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…
