Be Him Father's Day Cards

Hey everyone, it's Julianne bringing you some Father's Day cards using the Waffle Flower Crafts Be Him Stamp Set. I love the animals that are in this stamp set, specially the elephant, so I thought it would be perfect for creating my dad a Father's Day card.
I started out by stamping all the images in this stamp set with Black VersaFine Ink, and using Clear Embossing Powder to heat emboss them all. After coloring in all the images with copic markers I die cut them out with their coordinating dies. Next I started working on my background, I used a variety of banner dies to cut different shades of blue and green cardstock; Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners and Lawn Fawn Extra Sentiment Banners. For the background I cut some grey cardstock down to an A2 size card and started adhering the different colors of banners with some liquid adhesive.
Once the banners were all adhered I started working on my sentiments, I used the MFT All About Dad Stamp Set as well as the Be Him Sentiments. The Be Him stamp set has some super cute accessories to add to your critters, for my dad I really loved the top hat with my elephant. My dad growing up would always call him Joe Cool and I thought the elephant with the top hat made him look cool.
I adhered the images with their accessories with liquid glue as well and added foam tape to the back of my sentiments before adhering them to my card. To finish things off I added a few clear sequins.
Thank you all so much for stopping by I can't wait to see what you all create!

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…
