Spring Floral with Lawn Fawn

Happy Thursday crafty friends, Ashley D, here!  Since we’ve now had a couple days of sun, and a few days of rain, it feels like spring.  And I just felt like getting floral!  So today I created an easy floral card that can really work for any occasion with a simple change of sentiment.  

To begin, I die cut a white A2 rectangular (4.25”x5.5”) using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables.  To create the swirl opening, I bisected the rectangular using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border dies, discarding the middle.  I then ink-blended a yellow background onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade, giving it the same stitched border.  I adhered to a plain white A2 cardbase with Tombow Mono Tape Adhesive, and then topped it with the first two white rectangle pieces with foam adhesive, giving the opening depth.  

I then stamped several floral images from Lawn Fawn Flutter By, GleefulGardens, Fairy Friends, and Eggstra Special Easter in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored them in with Copic Markers, using my mother’s favorite colors of oranges and yellows  - Y000, Y00, Y11, Y15, YR00, YR12, YR14, YR20, YR23, YR31, YR04, G00, YG41, W0, W1.  I then cut each out with the coordinating dies (Flutter By, Gleeful Gardens, Fairy Friends, and Eggstra Special Easter), and adhered them to the opening with either tape runner or foam adhesive, depending on the depth.  

To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words in the same black ink onto white cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating Big Scripty Words Lawn Cuts.  To make the sentiment thicker, I layered two additional white die cuts and glued it to the front using my favorite Quickie Glue Pen. Happy spring everyone!

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…
