A-moose-ing Father's Day Shaker

Hello my friends! Thank you for joining me, Janette, here on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. I hope that this Father's Day finds you well and that you are celebrating those that you love. Fathers come in all shapes and sizes, and aren't necessarily always the biological pops. Be sure to celebrate all those who have taken on the fatherhood role out of necessity, compassion or simply for the love of the children. Sometimes that looks like a single mom, grandparent, uncle or even a friend or neighbor. It takes a village to raise these children, and it is important to let those people know they are appreciated.

I share with you the card that goes to the awesome dad in our house, it's a-moose-ing!

By now you must know that this girl loves a shaker. This card, with 4 shaker areas, was a breeze to make with the Misti Tool. I stamped the pond and stream identically on two 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock panels with the Dad & Me Lawn Fawn stamps (which is on sale now!). Set a panel for the back aside. Use coordinating dies to remove pond or fussy cut. Stamp hills with Lawn Fawn ink in Walnut and Doe. Remember that you can have a greater range of color with one ink by double stamping the image twice over itself for a darker image or stamping first on scratch paper and then without reinking stamping on your card panel for a lighter image.

Next, ink blend the sky with Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. Do the same with Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss for the grass. Stamp a few sprigs of grass for added interest. Die cut tiny clouds with Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Clouds Lawn Cuts. Stamp and color the moose with chosen accessories. I used Copic markers in E95, E33, E35, E37, E29, BG09, BG57, FYG2 and YG06.

Assemble card by attaching images to front and acetate to back of main panel. Add two layers of double sided foam tape and sequins to your back panel with the prestamped pond. Carefully line up your main panel with the pond in the background and there you have made yourself a shaker card!

This stamp set is great for Father's Day, but can be used year round. The accessories are just hilarious.  Of course there is the little fish, but a mustache, funny glasses, a hat - so stinkin cute! Head on over to the BRI shop now to get yours!

Have a fabulous day my virtual friends!

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 th

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 w

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hey, hey BRI friends!  We're hopping today to celebrate the 4th Birthday of Altenew , one of our favorite stamping companies!  You should have arrived here from the Altenew blog , and we're glad you're here to share the excitement! There are prizes and inspiration and it's going to be FUN! With you today, is Norine from The Velvet Lemon  creating for Butterfly Reflections Ink  and I have some projects to share today, that I made using some recently released Altenew products .   First up, are these two cards created with the Mega Succulent stamp set .   I stamped the image onto water color paper using the MISTI , then turned on the music and sat and colored.   I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils so I could more easily control where the color would sit and then painted with a water brush .  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to ensure that the ink wouldn't smudge, then tore the vel
