Crafty Friends


Hi, Crafty Friends!  Kathy here sharing my very first card as a Butterfly Reflections, Inc. design team member and I'm so glad you've stopped by today!


There is something special that happens when crafters meet each other.  They become instant friends!  I've met so many incredible people through this 'little' hobby both in person and on line that I wanted to start off creating something for all of you!


For my card, I used this super fun Crafty Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th with images that are near and dear to my heart!  Lining up the stamp to layer the different colors was easy peasy with my trusty MISTI, of course.  

I stamped the images with Catherine Pooler inks Tutti Frutti, Lime Rickey, Aquatini and Icing On The Cake. I must say, I'm new to these inks and they are A-mazing!  The colors stamp rich and vibrant and clean up is a breeze especially with the Lawn Fawn Stamp Shammy!

The die cut shapes are Concord & 9th Crafty dies which coordinate with the turnabout stamp, but can be used on their own, too!  I layered the die cuts on Lawn Fawn Ground Coffee and Peacock cardstock using one of the Concord & 9th Crafty dies.


Hope you'll follow us via email, Facebook and/or Instagram so you're sure to catch all the DT will be sharing...not to mention, you'll be among the first to hear about deals and specials!

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…
