Honey Bee Stamps - Thank You for Your Kindness

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have a new card and video tutorial to share with you today.  I'm really excited to share today's project.  It uses a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps.  I was blown away with Honey Bee Stamp's most recent release and I bought almost the entirety of it from Vanessa's shop.  Here's today's video:

And here are some pictures of my card:





To create today's card, I first created the background.  To do that, I inked a piece of Canson XL Watercolor Paper (cut slightly smaller than an A2 sized card base) with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide InkCandied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink.  I then spritzed some water from my Distress Sprayer onto the panel and then let it dry.  Next, I used a heart stencil from my stash and applied some Gold Glitter Paste to the stencil, which resulted in the beautiful gold hearts you see on the panel.  Next, I stamped the Forest Friends Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps onto some Canson XL Watercolor paper and then painted the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I used the following Zig Markers:
Bear: Dark Brown, Brown, Light Pink, Pink (for cheek), and Black
Hedgehog: Brown, Light Brown, Light Pink
Basket: Light Brown, Cornflower Blue
Bunny: Gray, Light Gray, Light Pink, Light Blue (For slight shadow on tail)
Bird: Brown, Yellow, Orange (for beak) and Light Pink

I then cut the image out using the Coordinating Forest Friends Honey Cut Dies and then adhered it to my distressed panel with foam tape.  Next, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink onto some black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then cut it out and adhered it with foam tape. I then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  What do you think?

Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

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…
