One-Layer Stamping - Rose Builder Set

Hey there, my stamping friends!

It's Kelly Martin here!

Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend and getting lots of opportunities for crafting!

Today, I'm sharing 2 different cards that were really simple to put together. Sometimes, I just really enjoy getting back to the one-layer cards and simple stamping. I can easily mass produce these and I also get to use a bunch of different color inks, which is one of my favorite things!

The process behind these cards was extremely simple. I used the WPlus9 Rose Builder stamp set and my Catherine Pooler inks and just stamped away! Although this is a layering set, the images are EXTREMELY easy to line up--just line up the centers, as the center "swirl" is in the same place on every single individual layer stamp!

Here are some tips for doing one layer floral stamping like this:

1. Incorporate multiple shades of green for your leaves. This will add some visual interest and cause your eye to travel all over the card.

2. Stamp your large floral images first, and then use your leaf images to fill in around the florals. 

3. Use an odd number of floral images when you stamp them. This will help your card have a more organic feel!

4. Don't squish too many images into the area, and make sure you leave room for your sentiment! If you're concerned about not leaving enough room for the sentiment, stamp that part first!

5. If you're concerned about too much white space, pick a very small "filler" image, and stamp it into some of the gaps (like I did with this brown-ish colored branch image on the pink rose card).

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you'll get back to the basics of one-layer stamping and give some of these ideas a try!

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…
