A cute elephant graduation card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Alix here backing to the BRI Blog showing a cute card I made using today's Pretty Pink Posh new release products.

To begin with my card, I stamped the images from Elephant Friends Stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto  piece of Neenah solar white 80 lbs card stock paper, and die cut with Elephant Friends Coordinating Dies. I also stamped some accessory images from Congrats Grad Stamp set and die cut with Coordinating Dies. Once I gathered all elements I need for this card, I colored them using my copic markers and set aside for later use.

To prepare my background, I grabbed a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper and cut the center window piece with Decorative Dies 2. I layered Pretty Pink Posh Graduation Stencil over the outer frame and blended Tim holtz Distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean to create my background pattern. Then I use the same color combo to ink blended the center piece lightly to match the whole scene. 

I arranged all colored images to the centerpiece and stamped the sentiment "You did it!) that comes from Congrats Grad Stamp set. I added 4 mm Sparkling Clear sequins and 6 mm Sparkling Clear sequins to embellish. At last, I attached the centerpiece using Foam tape to create the focus.

I hope you are inspired by my card. Don't forget to head to Butterfly Reflections Ink to grab some new goodies!

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…
