Thanks a Bushel!

Well hello!  So glad to be here with you today.  I have to say I am loving fall.  It finally feels like fall here in AZ.  We've been getting a lot of rain and just beautiful weather here.  So I wanted to dig into my stash of favorite stamps that have a fall theme.  I grabbed some of the good ones.  These sets are both from Lawn Fawn but they are so great!  Here is what I made with them:

I love these two sets.  One is Thanks a Bushel and the other is Cutie Pie.  So great for fall.  Here is how I made it. 

First, I cut a square from patterned paper and adhere it to a square card front.  I stamped the images with Gina K. Amalgam Ink and then colored them with copics.  I then used the coordinating dies for Cutie Pie and Thanks a Bushel and cut them out.  Next I used a square die cut and adhered it to the patterned paper.  Using foam adhesive, I adhered the images to the card front.  I then stamped the sentiment with Versamark Watermark ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Super Fine White embossing powder.  Putting adhesive on the strip,  tucked the sentiment under the images.  To finish it off I tied a bow with jute burlap twine and adhered it to the card with Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive.  

I also added Wink of Stella clear to the pie to give it a "sugar coating" and Gelly Roll White pen to accent the apples.  I hope you all are enjoying your fall as much as I am!  See you next week!

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…
