Guest Designer Sunday with Audrey Tokach

Hello! My name is Audrey, and I am a native Philadelphian living in Florida with my two beautiful boys and my handsome husband of almost 14 years. I am an artsy, coffee drinking, animal lover. My love for art started as a child... I hopped from hobby to hobby but had never quite found my creative niche. I started scrapbooking in 2001 when I was pregnant with my oldest son, and after a few years, I was introduced to stamping and card making. It was immediate love! Whimsical, cutesy images are my favorite and could spend hours and hours coloring with my Copic markers. When I am not creating, I am spending time with my boys, loving on my animals, or searching Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration for my next creative project. I am just thrilled to be joining the Butterfly Reflections Ink gang this month! I hope you'll stop by my blog for a visit! :)
To create my card, I started off with a piece of blue chevron patterned paper from the Avery Elle Everyday Collection 6x6 paper pad. I used the scalloped frame from the WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die set to cut a piece of white card stock. Then I used the rounded rectangle die from the same set to cut a piece of sunburst patterned paper also from the Everyday Collection paper pad. I matted that piece on some dark orange card stock to give nice contrast and a pop of bold color. I cut the word "sunshine" (also from the Sunshine Layers die set) from both white and dark orange card stock. Using copic markers, I created an orange ombre effect on the white diecut word, then adhered it slightly offset, onto the dark orange diecut to create a shadow. I cut the clouds from the die set from white card stock and used copic markers and my colorless blender to add a faint blue shadow to the bottom of the solid clouds. The sun is also diecut from white card stock and colored with copics. I stamped a coordinating sentiment from the WPlus9 Sending Sunshine stamp set on the top of the sunburst panel, then adhered the diecut word on a slight angle for some added interest. The clouds were adhered with a glue pen and the sun was popped up with foam tape. Before I adhered it down, I threaded some twine through an orange button and glued that in the center of the sun. The entire scalloped panel is popped up on the card front using foam tape, and to finish things off, I added a scattering of sequins.

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…
