Enjoy with Honey Bee

Happy New Years Eve! Kim with you today and I can't believe 2018 is already over, seems that the year just flew by! I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season so far! I am happy to be on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today, it has been a while!

I chose to share some super quick and fun Honey Bee gift card holders. The holidays often bring last minute thank you's and these are perfect for a coffee card! 

I used the fantastic Frappe Shake Card Honey Cuts dies and cut the tops (I didn't have 12x12 paper on-hand) to act as a latte gift card holder. Once those were die cut from Neena Desert Storm I took out one of the four Honey Bee Polka Dot Stencils (second largest) and used my Tonic Glitter Paste in Seaweed Quartz and Plum Spinel (these colors of embossing paste are just beautiful and they dry super quickly)

I put them to the side to dry and die cut my tops from Neena 80lbs cardstock and the sleeves from Lawn Fawn white Woodgrain cardstock and ink blended some Distress Hickory Smoke Ink. I then die cut the Enjoy sentiment also by Honey Bee from Tonic Specialty paper for both the enjoy and the shadow.

The sleeve slips off to reveal the inside of the card and the gift card. To finish off my two gift cards, I used the Hello Bluebird Holly and Pine dies in the matching paper and some Lawn Trimmings.

I wish all of you a wonderful 2019 and if you are out tonight, drive safe!

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…
