Peace and Joy to all my Gnomies

Hello crafty friends! Gladys here and I'm so happy to be back on the blog today. I have a super cute shape card to share with you. I hope you will like it!

I have been wanting to create a snow globe shaker card so this is what I came up with. I really love how it turned out and it was super fun to make. I thought it would be cute to combine it with the Oh Gnomie Tree stamp from Mama Elephant. So to begin I colored the huge gnome tree image using copic markers then cut it out using the coordinating die

Next I used the Snow Globe die from Honey Bee stamps. I like the size of this snow globe and the gnome tree fit perfectly. I cut the solid snow globe die from Bristol smooth cardstock so I could do some ink blending. I used the colors seedless preserves, picked raspberry and spun sugar distress oxide inks. I started from the center using the lightest pink color to the darkest on the edge. To add interest I splattered some water droplets and diluted seedless preserves using a fan brush. Since this is a snow globe it needed snow so I also splattered white gouache on the panel.

To create the shaker card I used the snow globe frame die cut from white cardstock multiple times to give enough height for the sequins to move freely. I also cut the frame from a light colored blue cardstock and used the solid snow globe die to cut the acetate. I adhered everything together using liquid glue. For the platform I cut it from woodgrain cardstock and inked the edges using vintage photo distress oxide ink. The shaker element consists of snow flake confetti's, clear sequins and beads

To ground the gnomes I cut a snowy hill from pixie dust cardstock. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the set onto navy cardstock. For the card base I used the solid snow globe die to cut from a top folding thick cardstock. I attached the main panel onto the card base and added the pink bow to complete my card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this gnome tree snow globe shaker card! Have a wonderful day!! Hugs!

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
