Hummingbird Tags


Hi Crafty Friends! 
It's Ali joining you again today. I have these bright and colourful tags to share!

Sometimes, you don't realise just how much you love a set until you start creating with it! I purchased this Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbird Thanks on a whim (I know I'm not alone here!! haha) and I am soooo glad I did - it is just so magical - if you love colour this set is for you! I also had to use my new distress Oxides - love, love, love!! I had to get the bundle because, well, there was just no doubt that I would want all the colours eventually anyway!!

  I used the My Favorite Things Cross-stitch Tag die to make the tags - love this tag shape (and you have the added bonus of the separate cross-stitch centre if you love cross-stitch!).

I cut 3 x tags and toppers with the die and made 3 tags. I first stamped (in My Favorite things Extreme Black ink) a flower from the Altenew set Adore You on each tag and masked them off. I stamped the 3 Hummingbirds on white card and fussy cut them (I aim to get the dies very soon!!). I stamped I sponged the bottom of the tags with inks and coloured the birds and flowers with copics. Details for each of the colourings are below.

Blue/green/purple Tag
Copics:  BG13, BG15, BG49, BG05. BV02, BV04, BV08

When the colouring was done I stamped the sentiment along the bottom of the tag and splattered with some water drops.  I popped up the birds with some 3D foam and adhered to the tags. The colour combinations for this set are really endless as the amazing natural colours of hummingbirds are so varied and beautiful!!

Thanks for visiting and see you next time xx

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…
