Up In The Air


Hello crafty friends and welcome!! Danielle here up on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today showing you a fun card featuring My Favorite Things Up In the Air stamp set and coordinating die set.  This set is so cute and versatile, it's perfect for Valentine's Day!!

I wanted to try my hand at a "long" card instead of the usual A2 standard size.  I started off ink blending using Distress Ink Oxide Tumbled Glass and My Favorite Things Mini Cloud Edges Stencil.    This stencil is so easy to use and you can create endless clouds that come out perfect every time!  I stamped all my images using Gina K Amalgam Black Ink Pad.  This ink is amazing, it stamps bold, crisp lines every time and can be used with various coloring mediums.  Once stamped, I colored each image with various copic markers.  I then used the coordinating dies and ran through my die cutting machine.  For the bottom grass part of my card I used Lawnfawn Stitched Hillside Backdrop and just trimmed off the top.  I adhered to my cloud panel using Mono Permanent Tape Adhesive.  Now the fun part starts, where I "play" on placement for all my images.  



Once laid out and I am happy with the placements, I adhered to my panel, some flat and some elements I used foam adhesive tape.  I added Lawnfawn Prisma Glitter to the front doors of my houses, and LawnFawn Chunky Glitter to my clouds. It's hard to capture the sparkle but it adds the perfect touch.  I also used Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to add sparkles to my hearts on the balloon.  This glitter pen is great because it's clear and won't change the color of your image but just adds a little shimmer! For my sentiment I stamped one of the many sayings that is included in this set with Versamark embossing pad and heat embossed with LawnFawn white embossing powder.


I hope you enjoyed this card!! And make sure to stop by the shop to pick up this amazing set and any other supplies you need! I'll see you next Tuesday, have a fabulous day!!

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…
