Friends Forever

Happy Tuesday!

Alix here introducing a friendship card. In my life, I had different friends in different period of life time. To be honestly, I will not be me without having them. I've been through a few tough time since I moved to United States. My friends were always being there for me when I needed help. I was trying best to be there for them as well.

I just received this stamp set from Butterfly Reflections Ink and I could not wait a minute to play with it. This stamp set contains lots of elements for scene building which means you could mix and match as needed for all occasions.

To start making this card, I stamped all images with Memento ink in Rich Coco and colored with Copic markers. One thing I want to mention is that I used Uni-ball Signo White gel pen to add interest on hedgehog, it turned out pretty good. I ink blended the background by using Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean . I splattered water mixture of these two colors onto the background using a paint brush.





I cut the background using Pretty Pink Posh Storybook 6 Die to create windows. I attached a piece of acetate and two layers of foam tape behind the windows to create dimensions. Then I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins to lighten up the background. 





At last, I arranged all colored images onto top of card using Multi Medium Matte and added a few more Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins to bring everything together as one. And there you have it! It is a very simple card to make after knowing the steps. I hope you like it and I can't wait to see what you all make! See you on next Tuesday!

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…
