Thanks a Ton

Hello everyone! It's Ashley with a sweet thank you card using Hello Bluebird's Elephant Friends stamp set!

I created my ombre background by blending Distress Oxide inks in Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, and Seedless Preserves onto a piece of white cardstock. I wanted the colors a bit softer behind my images, so I cut a piece of vellum using the largest rectangle in the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables to layer on top of my ink blending.

I stamped this adorable elephant and some critters from Hello Bluebird Elephant Friends onto Bristol Smooth cardstock with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. I also stamped flowers from Hello Bluebird Fairy Garden and Hello Bluebird Field Mice to create a floral garden around the animals. I colored everything with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

After figuring out my image placement, I stamped the butterfly's trail in VersaMark ink along with the "hugs" scripty sentiment from Hello Bluebird Spring Script onto the vellum and embossed with Zing Metallic Gold. I blended Tattered Rose Distress Ink onto a strip of white cardstock and stamped the "thanks a ton" from Elephant Friends with VersaMark and embossed that in gold as well.

I attached my images, popping up the animals and "thanks a ton" strip with foam squares. I used the Lawn Fawn Glue Tube on the vellum behind my images to attach the vellum to the ink blended cardstock panel. For a bit of extra interest and sparkle, I used the Lawn Fawn Glue Tube to add jewels from Pretty Pink Posh in Buttercream and Pink Blush.

Thank you so much for stopping by to see my card! I hope you 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…
