Quick & Simple Bulk Card Panels - VIDEO - with Concord and 9th


Hey friends! It's Ashlea here, and I'm back with more festive fun for your crafting pleasure. Today, I'm featuring the Happy Plaid stamp set from Concord and 9th. This stamp set is especially versatile because you can add or omit steps and change up ink colors or card stock to really make each card your own and individual. I created a video to show how easy it was using my MISTI. It's one of those bulk card deals where you can just turn off your brain and go and the result is beautiful! The video is linked here:




The only pattern I had planned out ahead of time was the red card stock with all black plaid. I love buffalo plaid and while this isn't exactly buffalo plaid, the colors are reminiscent and remind be of a cozy blanket.


For the blue card, I decided to omit the second single patterned line stamp to create a more open and simple plaid pattern. I used Something Borrowed ink by Catherine Pooler and used silver embossing powder on the double lines to give it a little shine. For the sentiment, I used the large hand lettered Christmas sentiment set by MFT and an old school label maker for the "come to you" portion.


I chose festive and traditional colors for this card. From the same MFT set, I chose Merry & Bright and added a few Pretty Pink Posh gems to add some sparkle.

I hope that you've enjoyed learning about how I created these card panels. I love that I knocked out 3 cards in no time! Especially this time of the year when I'm really getting down to the wire for sending out my cards! I hope you have a fabulous week and I'll see you very 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 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…
