Happy Birthday!

Hello, everyone! It's Cassie here, and I'm back to share a card I made using some of my favorite products. Stencils have been my go to lately for fun and colorful backgrounds. I thought they'd be fun for today's birthday card too! Let's jump right in.

I started with the My Favorite Things stencil called Lots of Heart. Using my Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides, I ink blended over the stencil to get a nice gradient of color. When I was done I used some of the ink to splatter over the top of the card as well. It reminded me of water splashing :) 
I had already colored in these cute images from the Sea-prise!  stamp set, which can make cards go a lot faster if you're in a pinch. I love coloring while I'm watching tv, and then I've got a stock of colored images to use of my cards. It's a win-win! I adhered them down with foam tape once the card panel was dry. Next I stamped out the 'happy' from Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy stamp set. I die cut it out with the coordinating dies and adhered that with foam tape as well. 
I also used the birthday stamp from the same Lawn Fawn set to heat emboss the rest of my sentiment on the card. To add some finishing touches, I did some Nuvo Crystal drops in the glossy white color for bubbles. And that's my card! 
I hope you enjoyed the project I made for today. Who else is crafting away on this Saturday?? I hope you all have a great weekend, and I'll see you again soon with another card!

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…
