Hello Bluebird Moose and Friends

Hello Butterfly Reflection Inkers! Lindsay Lajola here on the blog today with a fun new stamp set in the latest release from Hello Bluebird. The stamp set I'm using is called Moose and Friends and I also used the coordinating die cuts to cut out my images. 

I stamped all of my images using my Mini MISTI with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which is copic marker safe. When I first get a new stamp set, I like to stamp all the images and color them all, just to get a feel for all the stamp set has to offer. Today, I used almost all of the images on this card, because they're all just so cute I couldn't leave anyone out!

I decided to color the "Hooray" balloons in rainbow order using my stash of copic markers and added some Glossy Accents over the letters with a precision tip to make them look more three dimensional. I did this with all the balloons in the scene as well.

For the background of the card, I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I used the MFT Cloud Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to make the sky part of the background. I masked off the bottom of the card using Purple Tape to keep that white while I inked up the clouds. When the sky was finished, I switched the mask over and used Old Paper Distress Ink to color the ground. 

After adhering all of my images using foam adhesive dots, I added details with a white gel pen and embellished with Nuvo Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze.

I hope you all enjoyed my card today and will check out the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store for all their super cute Hello Bluebird products!

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…
