Plane and Simple!

Hi friends! Kari with you today, and I am happy to share this fun card with a little bit of rainbow goodness, and punny sentiments!

For today's card project, I wanted to ink up one of my favorite sets from the Lawn Fawn release called Plane and Simple.  I had this vision in my head that one of the planes was flying in a rainbow path, because rainbows are happy and cheery!  So, that is what I started out creating first.

I die cut a piece of smooth white card stock with the largest of the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables from Lawn Fawn.  I created out of some masking paper from Inkadinkado, and I took one of the Stitched Hillside Borders dies and had to separate pieces to create a wave pattern.  Then, I took some Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Blue Print Sketch, and Wilted Violet to create my rainbow wave :)

Then, I peeled back my masks to reveal a nice sharp line!  My favorite part is the reveal!  Then, I added some stitched cloud detail using the Stitched Cloud Backdrop - Landscape.  This is such a fun die!!!  I set aside my panel, and worked on stamping, coloring and die cutting my plane, and banner images.  I used my Copics to color these images in.   Nothing fancy, just "plane and simple" - see what I did there ;) HA!

My images were ready to adhered to my card front, so I added foam adhesive on the back of both images, and adhered it in the middle of my rainbow.  I then stamped the "Plane and Simple" sentiment using LF Jet Black Ink.  Before adhering the focal panel to my blue A2 sized card base, I wanted a bit more color and contrast, so I also used a piece of Perfectly Plaid: Rainbow pattern paper, and cut that down to size to give a nice frame to my main panel, and then adhered both pieces with foam adhesive to my card base.

I loved how this card turned out.  This could easily be a masculine or feminine card!  And, would be fun to make multiples and give as a set too!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you all have a great 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…
