Rockin' & Rollin' with The Stamp Market

Hello there and welcome to the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog! It's Janette Kausen here and it's been a minute since I've guested with BRI. I am excited to be back and to share today's project with you! As soon as I saw the Citrus Vine stamp set from The Stamp Market I knew it was going straight in my cart. We are citrus farmers so this set just had to be mine!
Recreate this card by stamping The Stamp Market's Criss Cross Background in Gina K's Black Amalgam ink on a 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" Lawn Fawndamentals white cardstock panel.

Next, set up The Stamp Market's Citrus Vine orange in a Mini MISTI Precision Stamp Tool in order to stamp it accurately three times. First, ink stamp completely solid in Dried Marigold Distress Ink.  Then, tilt Carved Pumpkin Distress ink at about a 45° angle to ink up just the outer 1/2" or so of the image all the way around. Finally, repeat with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink on just the outermost edge of the image. The rock and roll technique provides depth and dimension giving the orange a spherical impression.

This method can also be done with an acrylic block, stamp and ink pad by tilting the stamp instead of the ink. Though, no need to stamp three times. Ink the lightest all over, then rock and roll a wide band all the way around with the medium hue and the darkest just around the edges. Stamp all at once. Try both to see what works best for you!
Stamp leaves in Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron Distress Inks. Die cut all images, and if you are not a fan of the white border die cutting can leave, then you'll love the set! The Citrus Vine coordinating dies leave only a very fine border around the images.

Die cut three black Great Big Hi's also by The Stamp Market, and adhere stacked together. Assemble card by tucking and layering with liquid glue. Adhere finished panel to card base, handwrite a note, and pop it in the mail. Someone's day is about to be brighter!

Thank you for joining me, and thank you to Butterfly Reflections Ink for being awesome, and allowing me to guest! 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…
