Just Because I Love You

Hi, Jessica here!  Over the weekend I finally gave in and picked up a laser printer and now I'm foiling everything in sight!  Ha.  I'll attempt to not just post foiled creations this month but I did want to share one today!

If you're a regular blog follower of mine you'll notice that this card is quite out of the ordinary for me.  Recently I've been trying to push out of my comfort zone and experiment with different techniques and styles...and I'm pleased with how this turned out!  From certain angles the card just looks black and white but then you tilt the card slightly and the pink foil really pops!

I started off by stamping the Memory Box Wildflower Corner die onto a piece of white scrap paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The trick to smooth foiling coverage is to make sure the ink covers the paper evenly.  I actually misstamped this the first time so I used a q-tip to fill in a couple bare spots!  Next I used the laser printer to copy the image onto a piece of white cardstock.  I trimmed that piece of cardstock down to an A2 panel and then I ran the panel through my laminator (without a carrier sheet) with a sheet of pink melon deco foil covering the image.  After it came through the laminator I carefully peeled off the foil and was left with this gorgeous shiny pink design!

Next I die-cut the same image from a piece of black cardstock and flipped it over before gluing it onto the foiled panel.  Then I adhered the panel onto a piece of patterned paper from the Cottage Living 6x6 paper pad.

I stamped the sentiment from the Neat and Tangled Everyday Labels set onto a piece of white cardstock and fussy cut the words.  I used foam mounting tape to adhere the sentiment to the card panel for a little dimension.  The panel was attached to an A2 top-folding base of white cardstock and I finished the card by adding a few matching pink pearls!  

Thanks so much for visiting today and I'll see you next week!

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…
