Thinking of You Butterflies

Hey everyone, it’s Julianne here and I’m super excited to share these two cards featuring some Pretty Pink Posh products. Not only do I love these cards but I love that I actually got a good picture of them, the past 2 weeks have been storming non stop which makes it incredibly hard to take picture of my cards outside. Does anyone else struggle with that? Any suggestions, I’d love to hear them. Well back to the cards, they both feature the Beautiful Butterflies by Pretty Pink Posh.
I started out by stamping all of the butterfly images, I knew I wanted to clear heat emboss them so with my anti static powder bag I put the powder all over my paper than stamped them with VersaFine Black ink before adding some clear embossing powder. I really love adding this small step to my cards, it just adds something special to the images. I knew I wanted to do some distress oxide blended backgrounds so once I had picked my colors I decided to color in the butterflies with copic markers to match the backgrounds.

Once all the coloring was done, I die cut all of the butterflies out with the coordinating dies and then started working on my backgrounds. I used the following Distress Oxide Inns for my ink blended backgrounds: Old Paper, Evergreen Bough, Black Soot, Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries.

Once I had both backgrounds done I splattered both white and black paint to give some extra dimension. I cut out the Thinking of You script die from Pretty Pink Posh three times for each card and adhered them with liquid glue.
I arranged four of the five butterflies that you get in the stamp set on the card and decided I wanted to add the sentiment from the stamp set  on the inside of the card as well. 
With two of the butterfly stamps I stamped the inside of the card as well with the Evergreen Bough and the Worm Lipstick to match the outside. Finishing off each card I add some gold and silver sequins. Thank you all so much for stopping by to check out my cards, I truly appreciate it. Make sure to check out all the great inspiration from the rest of the design team. I can't wait to see what you all create, Happy Crafting.

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…
