Warm Winter Wishes

Hi, crafty friends! It's Cassie from Creatively Cass, and I'm here to share a non traditional holiday card with you all. Sometimes I get a little sick of the typical holiday color combos, so today I went with pastels and I ended up really liking it! Let's jump right in.
I started by stamping the two ladies from Right at Home's Cuppa Friendship stamp set at the bottom of an A2 size card panel. I used my Copic markers to color them in, and added a straight line using my ruler across the bottom to look like they sitting at a table together. I loved coloring these two in! There is a lot of detail you could go into with all the lines in these images, but I kept it somewhat simple, only using a few different colors for each girl. I added detail with my white gel pen to each image. 


Then I created masks for the two girls and ink blended some Milled Lavender Distress Oxide ink that faded towards the top. It's really subtle, but looks lovely in real life. 
Next, I die cut the Sending die from Heffy Doodle from the upper section of the same panel. On my card base I ink blended the Catherine Pooler ink color Icing on the Cake, so that it would show through where I die cut the sending die. I also die cut another sending die and ink blended Over Coffee ink from Catherine Pooler over it. This die cut was adhered offset from the one I die cut from the panel so that the darker brown ink looked like a shadow. Then I added glossy accents to the die cut word to make it pop even more. 
To finish the card I heat embossed the sentiment from the Heffy Doodle set Elfing Christmas Words on some Vanilla Malt cardstock from Lawn Fawn with gold embossing powder. I adhered it with foam tape and my card was complete! I hope you liked this non traditional holiday card for today. Be sure to head over to the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop to pick up any of the products you've seen on my card and many more! Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy holidays!

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…
