Gina K Designs

Happy Friday Friends!! It is Dana here today sharing a card perfect for Easter, or anytime. I am using the Gina K Wreath Builder Stamp & Stencil for my project. Are you familiar with these products? They are so clever and easy to use!


I started by placing my Gina K Wreath Builder Template Stencil in my Original MISTI. Next, I placed a 4x4 inch piece of white cardstock in the stencil. I used the Gina K Original Wreath Builder Stamp Set for all of my floral images. I just kept adding more and more images to build my desired wreath. The stencil keeps everything lined up perfectly, so easy! Here is what my wreath looked like as I was building it:


To make my A2 card, I cut my 4x4 wreath in half. I attached my wreath to the top and bottom of my card mat. Next, I added a white and gray strip of cardstock to the center of my card (this covers the gap that was created from cutting my wreath in half).


For my sentiment, I used the Hello Bluebird Spring Banner Script Stamp Set stamped onto a die cut circle. I attached my sentiment to my card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I attached everything to my A2 card base. While I used an Easter sentiment, any sentiment you might need will work great with this technique.


For my square card I followed the same steps as above. Though rather than cutting my wreath in half to make an A2 card, I created a 4x4 square card.  Here is my completed wreath:


I once again used the Spring Banner Script Stamp Set for my sentiment. Though this time I attached everything to a square card base.


Have you tried the Gina K Wreath Builder? It is definitely something you need in your card making supplies. It obviously works great with the Gina K Wreath Builder Series, but the stencil also works great with any small image. You will have fun using it!! 

Wishing you all a Wonderful Easter 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…
