Best Day Ever

Hello friends! Davina here on the blog today and I’m sharing another soft colored card using the July Mood Board that the crazy talented Butterfly Reflections Ink team put out at the beginning of this month. The sherbet pastel colors really made me happy and I’ve been able to create some very different looks with the same few colors.

Today I’ve use a great stamp and die set by The Greeting Farm called Best Day Ever and it’s currently on clearance on the website (link provided) . So really, you can’t  afford to pass it up! I love the Disney vibes it throws off so I wanted to create an amusement park scene since they really are the best days.

Now I’m a little “extra” , to say the least. So once the idea was in my head, and I finally had some time to create, I drew a basic version of its a small world. It’s maybe a small 3x3 image that is compromised of mostly rectangles and boxes, with a few circles and and triangles.

I colored it with Copics, in the four colors of the mood board, and also with a light skin tone that I considered neutral. Then I die cut some Bristol smooth cardstock using the largest Lawn Fawn Outside stitched rectangles and inkblended using Distress inks in squeezed lemonade and evergreen bough. I then lightly splatted with water and opaque white ink.

Then using my stamp platform, I stamped the images and colored with the same copics I used on the background drawing. I made a faux Minnie hat by stamping and fussy cutting the hair bow from a different Greeting Farm set called Couple Goals, and glueing

it inside the mouse hat. I love using the coordinating dies for stamp sets, but I do like to take the time to cut out portions of negative space. So on the balloons I used an xacto knife to cut out the white space between the strings since it was covering so much of the front real estate. I know that not much shows through, but it doesn’t make an impact.

Before attaching any images to my background I played with placement and then heat embossed a few of the stamp sets words in gold. I wanted a subtle look and didn’t want old black words. Then I glued down all of my images, for finishing off with a small prickling of gold sequins.

Thanks for dropping in and I hope that I’ve inspired you to make something today! Thank you,
Davina

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…
