Rain or Shine

  
Hello crafty friends! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Gladys here and I'm sharing this two scene in one card today. I have quite a few steps to cover so let's get started shall we.
 

So the weather where I live has been bonkers lately. In one week we've had rain, wind, sunshine, and winter temperature...I'm so confused sometimes I don't know what to wear for the day. (Ok I lied that's pretty much everyday for me, the struggle is real people!) Well today my card is all about weather and I'm sure I'm not the only one who is ready for warmer temps and to see all the pretty flowers in full bloom.Yes bring on the sunshine because I sure need some Vitamin D.
 
 For my card I used a lot of MFT products. I adore their new stamp set called Rain or Shine from the amazing Birdie Brown collection. The stamp set come with two girl images, four adorable little ducklings, sun, clouds and a puddle to create the perfect rain or shine scene.
 
I colored all the images with copic markers and cut them using the coordinating dienamics. Next I inked up my card panel using mowed lawn, twisted citron and broken china. For the grass I used the drifts and hills stencil. Then I die cut the center of the panel using the girl dienamics as seen in the picture. I also did the same thing to one side of my top folding card base.  

For the rain I wanted to add texture so I used embossing paste on top of the mini raindrop stencil.

 
I set the panel to dry and started working on the inside of the card. For the sky I used mini cloud edges stencil and for the grass I used drifts and hills stencil using the same distress inks. 
Once the embossing paste was completely dry I adhered it onto my card base. The girl cut outs should line up perfectly. I added foam tape on the girl image and placed it in the die cut, basically doing an inlay technique. I adhered the rest of the images and die cut the cloud border so I could add my sentiment. Lastly I added some white details using a gelly roll pen.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this card. Thanks Vanessa for having me back on your blog today. I hope you're enjoying a much needed vacation!
 
Happy crafting everyone!!

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…
