You Make Me Ridiculously Happy

Hello, crafty friends! It's Cassie from Creatively Cass here, and I'm so happy to be back on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog to share a card I made! It's been too long :) Today I'm sharing a card I made using some Honey Bee Stamps products that feature a fun and bright card front. Let's dive in!

I started this card by taking a piece of A2 size 110 lb card stock and doing some stamping. I stamped the flowers from Honey Bee's Busy Bee stamp set, adding stems and leaves to each flower. I overlapped them, which required some easy masking. I colored in the petals and flower centers, but left the stems and leaves until after the next step, since I wasn't taking the time to mask them. Next came the ink blending. On the top I ink blended Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink and the bottom I used Twisted Citron and a hint of Lucky Clover Distress Ink. As you can tell, the colored don't mix in the middle. Instead I faded them to white so that it just looked like the sky and the grass. Once that was done I finished coloring the stems and  leaves.
I stamped the adorable, Ridiculously Happy stamp in the top center of the card for my sentiment. Next I stamped out a ton of the little bees from the set and colored them in. I don't have the coordinating dies for these, so I fussy cut them out. I rolled each of their wings with a pencil, and added them to the card with foam tape. My finishing touch was to add a bunch of little Nuvo Crystal drops all over in the color Ebony Black. And that finished my card!
I hope you enjoyed the card I made for today! And I hope you all are having a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by.

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…
