Aquaman Anyone?

Hello to all you fabulous crafters, it's Candice here with you this Friday and I hope you are having a great day!  Excited to be sharing with you on Friday's with Butterfly Reflections, Ink!

Okay, I don't know about your home, but our home is a superhero home!  So of course I had to use the adorable new Sunny Studio Super Duper stamps.  I have been loving Davina's, on IG she's popsiclesticks, designs with movies and shows and decided to take my try at it!

I went with Aquaman, I love that I could create an underwater scene with him!

For my underwater superhero scene I used Sunny Studio products:
To start my slimline card, I create an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base and with the left over piece I trimmed to use on the front.  You can use size 9A envelopes to fit this card perfectly in.

I created the background first by blending salty ocean, mowed lawn, shabby shutters & scattered straw using the amazing Picket Fence blender brushes.  I then made the sand by die cutting using the woodland borders, inked with tea dye & antique linen and splattered brown and white paint with a paintbrush.

While I let that dry, I stamped all the images from super duper & best fishes using memento black ink.  Next, I colored them with copic markers and then cut them out with the best fishes coordinating dies & super duper coordinating dies.  I took aquaman and trimmed off the cape (cause we all know what happens to the ones that wear capes 😉)

To put the card together, I die cut Atlantis from vellum and added some white accents with a pen.  I ended up not liking it, but what can you do, we have all been there!

I took sentiments from each stamp set and combined to create this cute title!  I trimmed some black cardstock to create the banners and heat embossed in white.  For the final touches, I added clear nuvo drops which pick up the color under them beautifully!

I hope you get inspiration from crafty friends and try your hand at a new theme or style as I did with Davina's!

Thank you for visiting!

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…
