Halloween card inspired by October mood board


Hi friends!  I’m back with another mood board inspired card!  This cute scene shows an adorable fox who dropped his broom and bag of candy because he was spooked by a ghost!  

My card features a shaker window behind the word “boo” and a couple of jewels to look like candy.  The colors were inspired by the mood board below.

To start, I first masked off the moon and then ink blended a sky using the following distress oxide inks (top to bottom): seedless preserves, ripe persimmon and mustard seed.  Next, I splatted the background with some water.  Then I used the grassy stencil and distress oxide ink colors in pine needles and peeled paint to blend the grass. The panel was cut using the outside in largest stitched rectangle die.  The word “boo” was cut using Finley’s ABC die.  I saved the inside pieces of the letters so I could glue them into the missing areas later.  

Acetate sheet was glued to the back of the panel and double sided foam tape added to the edges to create a shaker.  Pretty pink posh glossy black jewels and black sequins used to fill my shaker.  The background paper is from the really rainbow 6x6 paper pack.  The missing pieces to the letters were glued on at the end.  

Images from happy haunting, fox costumes before'n afters, pick of the patch, costume party and spooky village were stamped using black ink and colored with copic markers.  I stamped the ghost on vellum using black stazon ink and cut it using the coordinating dies.  The images were glued into the card and white gel pen was used for accents.  Lastly, I added colorful jewels to my card to resemble candy spilling out from the treat bag.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you found inspiration in this month's mood board colors!

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

Penny Black All Lit Up + MFT Delightful Deer

Hi everyone, Amanda here today with a project I created using my favorite theme, nature and deer combined!  Add in a little  distress inking and WOW!   So I started with an A2 sized panel. I cut a hill using Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders  to create a mask for the bottom. I distress inked from center of my panel, working outward using a combination of yellows, greens and blues. I inked all the way down to the hill, then removed it to leave the white of the card appearing to be a snow hill. Now I take this GORGEOUS stamp, All Lit Up by Penny Black  and stamp it using VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp it twice to get a nice dark impression. I then cut white acrylic paint 50/50 and tapped it on my night sky using a small paint brush. You'll notice on the image, there are little circles where you'd color in your lights or ornaments. I chose to use Nuvo Drops in gold and silver.  While all that was drying, I cut out a deer from
