Hoppy Birthday to you

Hello Everyone, 

Hope you had a fantastic Easter on last Sunday! I made this cutesy card for today's Design Team project. Let me tell you a back story about this. It was about 3 weeks ago. I went to a local store and purchased a Frog planter. And the next day, we started to hear frog rabbit sound in the back yard. It lasted for many days. It was kinda nightmare because this One frog made extremely loud sound all night. My husband thought the planter I got was attraction. We tried many ways to find him but failed miserably. Until 3 days ago, our rain season ended temporarily and temperature went up to 80 F. The sound went away. We don't know if he moved out or something else, our night is quiet again. Now I am making a frog card to say bye bye to our visitor.  

To begin with, I cut the frame 3 times using Lawn Fawn Peekboo backdrop die  , I stacked frames together using Multi medium matte. For the background, I used Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Picked raspberry with ink blending technique. For creating the blue bond. I directly smudged Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Salty Ocean on to the paper, then I crumbled a piece of \tissue paper to dab some wet ink off so I could create some texture on the surface.  

I inked all images from Lawn Fawn Toadally Awesome stamp set with memento ink in Tuxedo Black and color with Copic markers. Since I don't have the coordinating die in hand, I hand fussy cut them with scissors. Assembling was easy, I used some foam tape and Multi Medium Matte. At last, I stamped the sentiment and added Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and Nuvo Crystal Drop in Morning Dew.

Hope you like this card and I will see you on next Tuesday. Ciao!

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…
