Hi there!
This is Tanya from Studio 5380 and I have a fun shaker card to share with you today.  One thing I love about being a card maker is the ability to brighten the day of someone who has been feeling a little down. I try to keep a supply of "happy cards" on hand for just such occasions and I think this sweet card fits the bill perfectly...
This card went together pretty quickly and I'm thinking I may create a stash of these cuties!

I used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and a Mini Ink Blending Tool to create my background. The background was then adhered to a black card base.  I die cut the word hello from black card stock and covered it with Clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.

The shaker portion of this card was so fun and easy to make with the Die-namics Shaker Flower die set from My Favorite Things. This is my first card using the Shaker Pouches from MFT and I highly recommend them.  They make creating a shaker card so much easier!

I used some pretty prints from the Doodlebug paper pads, Spring Things and Under The Sea to die cut the shaker flower.  The yellow center is stamped with a sentiment from the Love Letters stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

My shaker flower is filled with some beautiful Pink Lemonade Sequins by Neat & Tangled.  I also added a few to my card base with a bit of Ranger Multi Medium Matte. 

I'm hoping this card will bring a little happiness to someone special!
Thank you so much for dropping by today and 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…
