Hello

Hi, everyone! It's Cassie here from Creatively Cass and I'm back to share a cute card I made for the blog today! I absolutely missed the St. Patrick's day window this year, but I still wanted to get a rainbow card in, and this is what I came up with.

I've had the Rainbow Wishes die set from Concord & 9th forever, and it was time to finally use it! I die cut some of the rainbow pieces out of the new Lawn Fawn card stock colors Pencil Eraser, No. 2 Pencil and Sage Leaf. I love these new colors and can't wait to use them again! I also die cut some Heffy Doodle Swirly Clouds dies from a light gray cardstock. Then I used Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to darken up the bottoms of them a little. 
I die cut the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die from white card stock and heat embossed some little stars all over the panel with gold embossing powder. I thought this added a cute touch to the background, without adding any competing colors. I also ink blended some Pumice Stone Distress Oxide in the corners and splattered a little bit of the color watered down for some more texture. I stamped out the cute little cat from the Mama Elephant set Book Worm and colored him in with my Copic markers. I kept the coloring really simple, and I love the way it turned out so soft. I popped everything up with foam tape and adhered it to the card base. 
To finish off the card I heat embossed a simple hello from the Concord & 9th set All Year Long onto some black card stock. This too was popped up with some foam tape. The last little details I added were white gel pen on the rainbow, clouds and kitten. And that's it for my card today! I hope you enjoyed it. I had fun making it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll see you again soon with another card :)

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…
