Shaker cards using Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant supplies

Hi everyone

Alexandra here sharing more winter/ Christmas projects with you . As you may know by now winter is my all time favourite season , if it was on me I could start decorating now for winter season :)) but what I love and I collect are snow globes . I already have a tiny collection and every year I am adding one more :)
So the project for today is featuring snow globes using Lawn Fawn Ready, set , snow shaker add on die


And to start I die cut several times the cardstock using the Lawn Fawn die and then started inking the background of it making sure to mask the bottom part where it suppose to be the snow .For the ink blending I am using Distress inks and the colors are Chipped Saphire and Salty ocean.

Next I started working on the shaker part so I die cut several acetate pieces to fit the shaker window and then using a strong tape I and adding the acetate. Adding the foam tape which is double up so my shaker material can move without problem inside and then adding a bunch of sequins that I had on my stash .

Now before adding the foam tape make sure you stamp the sentiment first , cause other wise can be a bit tricky , I used the sentiments from Holiday Helpers stamp set and Winter Village stamp set  

Last part was to color a bunch of critters and to add them to my shakers aka snow globes  :) and I am using Winter otter stamp set and Mama Elephant Cool penguins stamp set . My images are colored using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers !

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed this shaker cards that I made and until next time I hope you have a great 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…
