Happy Birthday, Matey!

Hi there!
This is Tanya from Studio 5380 stopping by to share a pirate themed birthday card with you today.  I had so much fun with these adorable images from Lawn Fawn....

I mean, seriously, how cute are these guys?

These adorable little pirate images are from Lawn Fawn's Ahoy, Matey Stamp Set.  I colored them with my Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating Ahoy, Matey Lawn Cuts.  The little seashells are from another darling Lawn Fawn set,  Mermaid For You.

I added a little sparkle to several images with a Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and gold Stickles.

To create my card panel, I inked up my cardstock with my Mini Ink Blending Tool and several colors of Distress Ink including:  Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean,  Carved Pumpkin and Worn Lipstick.

For finishing touches to my card, I used a White Uni-Ball Signo Pen to add a few "waves" to my ocean.  I also added a few Copic marker dots to the sand to create a little texture.

Before adding my completed panel to the card base, I distressed the edges of my kraft paper with a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and inked up the edges with some brown ink.  

And, there you have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great day and I'll see you soon!

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 th

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 w

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
