Studio Katia Pretty Poinsettia Shaker card

Hello everyone!  It's Jacquie today with a pretty Christmas card!  Before I get started, I want to remind you that there is a FANTASTIC SALE going on right now at Butterfly Reflections Ink! I will add the coupon code to the bottom of this post.

I started this card by taking an A2 sized card panel and stamping images from Studio Katia Merry Poinsettia set around the entire card using Copic friendly ink.  I colored them with Copic markers.  Then I took the Studio Katia Dotted shaker tag die and centered it on my colored card panel and cut it out.  

I assembled the shaker card by cutting out clear acetate and using a strong tape adhesive to cover the shaker window.  I stamped Be Merry from the Studio Katia Merry Poinsettia stamp set on a piece of clear acetate. I used my MISTI stamping tool for this because I needed to stamp it a few times to get good coverage, and also because I did not want to smear the ink. I then stamped that same Be Merry sentiment on a piece of vellum.  I offset it on the acetate so that it looks like there is a shadow of the sentiment, showing through the vellum. 

 I assembled the shaker card by cutting out Judikins Embossable Window plastic and using a strong tape adhesive to cover the shaker window.  I created a shaker well by using Scotch foam mounting tape, double layer.  I added the sequins and then put the top folding notecard on the shaker panel and pressed it down.  I added some details to the berries using a white gel pen.

Due to the sale, many of the items I used are sold out, however, I put together a few substitute items you can use!  

That's it for the card today.  Be sure to shop the sale (today is the last day!)  There are a ton of great items in the store, and this is a wonderful sale and so generous!

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…
