MFT Die-namic Cuties

Hey friends!!! Britney here with a fun birthday card series featuring My Favorite Things products. Here’s another set very unlike my normal style of scene card, but I couldn’t resist these adorable critters. I had to have the whole set.
I like to start with making my backgrounds first and build from there. I inked up a panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide  ink. I had a bit heavier hand at the bottom and went lighter towards the top.
I used the MFT Ray of Light Stencil  and inked the panel up again with Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide  ink.  After everything thing was dry, I used the next largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frame  and cut a frame directly out of my panel.
I also cut three additional frames from plain white cardstock to stack together to give my frame some dimension. I cut all my animals (MFT Friendly Fox, Little Piggy, Cottontail CutieRacoon Cutie, and Puppy Love) from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb cardstock. 
I was channeling Nichol Sphor when making these and I used Copics to color my animal pieces instead of using different color cardstock. I like the shading I’m able to get from coloring them with Copics.
I followed this same process when cutting out the heart from the Straight from the Heart Die-namics. I cut the arrow out of chrome paper. I assembled all my animals.
I left all the arms off adding them around the heart. One thing I did different for the piggy was I cut three more noses from white cardstock and stacked those together to give the nose a snout look.
I added highlights with a white gel pen and a black glaze pen on the eyes and some of the noses. I cut a white strip of paper wide enough to hold the Happy Birthday sentiment. I used the Block Happy Birthday Die-namic  to cut my letters out of red cardstock to match my hearts.
I used the MFT Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings  sentiments for the insides of my cards. 
I hope you enjoyed this fun set of birthday cards! Have a great 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…
