Concord & 9th

Howdy Friends!! It is Dana here today with a fun set of cards using the Concord & 9th To The Point Turnabout Stamp Set.


I started my first card by using the To The Point Stamp Set. This turnabout stamp is a little different than other turnabouts. It's a split turnabout with succulents/cactus on one half and pots on the other side. So you use two colors each time you turn (up to 8 colors) to create your pots and cactus. This allows you to keep your cactus green but add color to your pots. I only used four color...so I repeated my greens twice and my pot colors twice. I took a picture of each step to show you how it comes together...I am sorry about the shadows on my pictures, but I was stamping at night.


You will notice that there is an empty spot in the center of the design. You can add an included sentiment there, or fill it in with the individual images in the stamp set (that is what I did). Next, I cut down my card panel and added a Vellum rectangle to the center of my panel. I then used the Concord & 9th To The Point Dies to die cut my cactus image and "Howdy" sentiment for my card front. I attached my card panel to an aqua cardstock mat before attaching it to my A2 card base.


For my second card, I only used the To The Point Dies. I once again die cut my cactus and "Howdy" sentiment and attached it to my card front with Foam Adhesive. I layered my card panel onto my cardstock mats and attached it to an A2 card base. I love these dies...they make a quick card- but it is so cute and trendy!!


Make sure and stop by the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store and check out the selection of Concord & 9th Products
Happy Friday and Enjoy your weekend!

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…
