A Floral Hello!

Hey, crafty friends!

If you're stopping by cause you just can't resist a good floral card, then you and I will be besties. :)

I don't really know the meaning of seasonal florals. Well, I do, but I break all the rules of seasons. When it's 20 degrees outside, I WILL be creating summer and spring florals because that what makes me happy. And if there's anything I've learned about cardmaking, it's that you should create what inspires you!

If you've stayed with me through that long Public Service Announcement, then you've given me another reason to be your best friend.

On to today's card!

Although this card may look complex, it was actually pretty easy to put together. I stamped images from an Altenew set in multiple ink combinations and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I set them aside and then created the background.

I cut and scored a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base from dark gray cardstock and then trimmed down an additional vellum panel and adhered it to the card base. I then used a background stamp and made an third panel and trimmed it down before adhering it on to the base at an angle, for added visual interest.

After arranging the floral images around the card, I used my Press N Seal to pick them up, and then applied foam tape to the back of the die cuts. I turned the Press N Seal over and laid them on to the card. Using this technique really saved me some time!

I used the sentiment die in the matching die set to cut several pieces of the matching gray cardstock and glued them all together. I adhered it down to my card front to finish everything off and then promptly squealed at all the floral loveliness!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy crafting!

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…
