What a Fab BOO lous Day!

It is a Fab BOO lous day here in AZ!!  Why?  Let me tell you.  It is under 100 degrees.  It is under 90 degrees.  It is under 80 degrees.  AND!!!  It's raining.  Truly, I nearly cried when the temperatures changed.  So this got me thinking all fall and Halloweeny thoughts.  Thus this shaker card came to be.

So to make this card it was a bit lengthy, but you can do it!  So I inked the background using Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks.  I then die cut out square using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Square Stackable Dies.  Taking the die that is smaller, I cut a frame out of the two.  To make this step easier, use the Lawn Fawn Stitch Square Frame. Then I stamped these cute ghosts from the Fab-Boo-lous Friend stamp set by My Favorite Things with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  After coloring them with copics, I added detail with a White Gelly Roll pen and I fussy cut them out.  I highly recommend getting the matching Fab-Boo-lous Friends coordinating dies. It makes this process soooooo much easier.  

I put Scor Tape around the frame and adhered a piece of acetate to it.  Next I put doubled up foam tape around the edges.  I put the cute images and sequins face down on the acetate.  Adhere the inked background to the frame.  To finish it I adhered it to a card panel. I then stamped the sentiment and added it to the card.

Hope you have a great rest of your week!  Enjoy the weather out there, I know I will!

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

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
