Marble and flowers!

Hi there! Emily Midgett here with a guest post during this holiday weekend. Have you heard of The Stamp Market? They're a relatively new company, and they have some suuuuper cute designs, and Vanessa just so happens to carry them in her shop! I just love how many great brands she carries in her store. The Marble background stamp is so clever and so very unique that I just couldn't resist it! Combining it with flowers.... well, it's like a pretty bouquet sitting on a beautiful marble countertop.... hopefully haha! 

To start, I stamped the Marble background stamp on a piece of A2 sized magenta card stock using Altenew's Purple Wine ink and my MISTI. After I had inked it up to my satisfaction with the Purple Wine ink, I dabbed some Delicata Silver on my Marble background stamp and added a few veins of silver to my marbled panel. I love that you can add little details like that with your MISTI because you can ensure that you're re-stamping in exactly the same spot!

Next, I stamped some of the blooms from Feeling Floral onto some white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with my Copics in shades of pink and golden yellow. I know, I know, it's totally smack dab in the middle of Christmas Crafting, but.... Sometimes I need some pretty sunshine-y colors amidst all of the red and green and silver and gold! I fussy cut all of the flowers, then turned to the sentiment. 

For the greeting, I used The Stamp Market's You stamp and die bundle cut from some silver glitter card stock and silver heat embossed on a strip of white card stock I arranged all of the flowers in the corner of the marbled panel, then adhered them with dimensional adhesive and added my greeting over the top. The final touch was to add some Sunshine Glow sequins from my stash to fill out some bare spots in the bouquet. 

Well, that's all for me today! I hope you had a marvelous Thanksgiving and are enjoying your holiday shopping! Thanks so much for having me back as a guest!

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…
