Mama Elephant best of luck shaker with Leontine

Hello again! For today’s card I went through all of my stamps and picked a set I only used once before. That set is Lil Toy Machine from Mama Elephant. I searched for a background that matches the little toy balls and I loved the Circular Grid. After combining these sets the card pretty much created itself. I also added one bunny from Little Bunny Agenda stamps

I cut two cardstock panels of 5,5” by 4 ¼” and cut one of them with the Circular Grid. I combined Shaded Lilac with Cracked Pistachio on both panels to create a soft, but colorful background. To make it a little more interesting I added drops of Liquid Stardust mixed with water and I splattered drops of Shaded Lilac and Cracked Pistachio mixed with water.

While that was drying I stamped images from Lil Toy Machine and Little Bunny Agenda stamps on some copic friendly paper with Jet Black ink, cut them out with the coordinating dies and colored them with my Copic Sketch Markers. The colors I used are: G02, G05, R20, R22, R24, YR12, YR15, RV23, RV25, V12, V15, BG0000, BG000, BG11, BG13, BG23, BV000, BV02, B00, B02, Y00, Y02, 0, C1, N3, N5, N7, E23, E25, E27, E51, E53, E55.
By the way, I stamped the sentiment onto the inside piece of the toy machine before I cut out the machine.

I cut a piece of acetate to fit behind the circular grid and attached it with liquid glue. Then I added foam strips around all of the circles. I filled them with toy balls and those adorable little animals. Next I added some iridescent stars in every circle to add some shimmery fun and closed the shaker with the colored background.

I wanted to add a little height to the toy machine, so I cut the toy machine out of some white cardstock twice and I also cut around it once, so I’d have a background to glue the sentiment on. I adhered all of those pieces together and added it to the front panel. I used a little foam strip to lift the agenda bunny up from the background. I added the shaker panel to a card base with some liquid glue.

Last but not least I added some Diamond Stickles to the stars, lucky clover and coin slot. And that’s it! I hope you like the card. Have a lovely week!

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
