Calla Lilies - WPlus9 and Catherine Pooler

Happy Spring friends!  Jacquie here today filling in on this first Sunday of Spring. The weather has warmed up wear I am, and I'm seeing flowers and bright fun colors everywhere!



I was very excited that Vanessa started carrying Catherine Pooler inks and stamps....I've been hearing great things about these.  And they do NOT disappoint!  Beautiful colors and coverage, and they are so versatile - you can emboss, color blend, and each time you get flawless stamping!  I'm in love.  (Ahem...I may or may not have gotten the entire collection. ;))

On to the cards!  Both cards were made using the Modern Calla Lilies set from WPlus9.  I happen to LOVE this flower...so elegant, and simple.   I stamped all the flowers on Bristol smooth paper, and colored them with a sponge applicator using the Catherine Pooler inks -Aquatini, Mint To Be, All that Jazz, Tiara and Garden Party.  I cut them out and had enough for two cards, so  I made two!


For this one, I cut out a scalloped card panel using WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die set and then stamped the greenery directly on it.  I stamped the greeting, and then made my arrangement.  I finished it off with some Nuvo drops for embellishments.


For this card, I used my Altenew Layered Medallion die set for the backdrop of my floral arrangement.  I stamped the greeting using Catherine Pooler All That Jazz ink, and cut it out and mounted it.  Again, I used some Tonic Nuvo drops to embellish the card.

That's all for today friends!  

Peace,
Jacquie

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…
