Wedding Wishes with Chibitronics

Hello everyone! It's Ashley with a super special card for you today. My little brother is getting married this weekend so I wanted to do something extra amazing for the happy couple. I decided to try my first light up card, and I think it turned out pretty well!

The bride is originally from Alaska and that is where they are getting married so I decided to pay a bit of homage to that with the polar bears and Northern Lights-ish background. I started by making masks using Lawn Fawn Grassy Border and Hello Bluebird Pond Builder and blended the grass using various green dye inks including Lawn Fawn Cilantro. I created the galaxy background with Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire. I flicked some watered down white acrylic paint on top for stars and die cut using the largest rectangle in Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I stamped the constellations from Lawn Fawn Upon a Star with VersaMark and embossed with Wow Sparkling Snow. I added the sentiment from Hello Bluebird North Star to the bottom with black Versafine and embossed with clear.

I then went to work creating the circuit. Here is what it looked like when it was finished. I wanted the lights to be behind the three biggest stars in the heart constellation. I used the Chibitronics copper tape to create the path for three white lights. There is also a starter kit with all the instructions to make a circuit. I needed three layers of foam tape to keep the battery from being continually pressed.

I used a paper piercer to make holes in the three largest stars of the heart constellation so they would shine extra brightly. I stamped the "Push Here" from Lawn Fawn Push Here over the spot where the battery would be and embossed with Wow Sparkling Snow before attaching the panel to the circuit piece. I finished by stamping the polar bear couple from Lawn Fawn Winter Skies and coloring with Copics before fussy cutting and adding them to the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card! Have a wonderful day!

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…
