Mood board inspired shaker

Hi friends!  I'm back sharing another fun card using the July mood board for inspiration.  This card measures four and a half inches square and is a shaker card.

To start, I ink blended a background using Catherine Pooler Inks: Samba, Bellini, Tiki Torch and Tiara.  The background stencil was created using an older Hero arts triangle background die.  Images for this card are from the year seven stamp set and coordinating dies.  The images were stamped using black ink and colored using copic markers.  White gel pen used for accents.

Then I used a square fame die from Lawn Fawn to cut a white piece of cardstock create the window.  Next, I added clear acetate and foam tape to the edges.  The center image was suspended using a piece of nylon cord and a dime (taped to the back of the piñata image) to create a swinging piñata.  I doubled up the foam tape on the edges and sandwiched the nylon cord in between to suspend the image.

Next, I added some 4mm sequins: sparkling clear, marigold, tangerine, pumpkin, and raspberry to the shaker.  The front of the card was then adhered down to the ink blended image with all the sequins to create a shaker.  After the shaker was complete, I white heat embossed part of the sentiment on black card stock and adhered it to the front of the shaker.  Next, I ink blended distress oxide colors: mustard seed, carved pumpkin, ripe persimmon, picked raspberry and barn door on a scrap piece of white cardstock.  The smash was cut using Oliver's ABC die and glued onto the front of the shaker.
I cut a piece of white cardstock 9 inches by 4.5 inches to create a square card base.  The shaker was glued to the card base and that completes the card!

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

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
