Happy Pawlidays!

Hello and welcome to November!  I know we have another holiday before Christmas but tis the season to get working on my holiday cards!  

This adorable set from My Favorite Things is an instant favorite for me!  I have lots of dog friends, so I will be using this a lot!  Here is how I put together this quick and easy card!  I stamped all the dogs, ornaments and presents in the set and colored them all with Copic markers and then cut them out.  For the background, I sponged on some Salty Ocean distress oxide, and then dripped some water on it, dried it and then added white paint splatters for snow.  I used this MFT drifts and hills stencil and some ink to make some snow drifts.  I then took some glitter paper and die cut it with the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop die.  I popped it up and adhered it to the background using some scotch foam tape.

I then added my colored images using Scotch foam tape.  To complete the card, I stamped the Happy Pawlidays sentiment in the corner using Versafine Black Onyx ink.  I then went in and added some extra details with Nuvo White Blizzard glitter drops as accents to the hat and bow and also as some added sparkle to the whole card.

This card was actually pretty simple and could be mass produced and duplicated using just about any cute critter stamp and the fabulous scene die.  If the dogs are not your thing check out some of these other ones that I recommend in the store!

Have fun and happy shopping!!!

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…
