Christmas Shaker Card with Mama Elephant

 Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a cute and simple holiday shaker card! This little card was pretty quick to put together and my favorite part of the card is the felt bow! Bows always make everything cuter!

To make the shaker, I die cut several of the hexatag snowdrift frames and stacked them together. I prefer the cardstock stacking method for shaker frames because you can customize the depth of your shaker well this way. I ink blended a quick background on the solid hexagon piece and glued on the vellum trees. After gluing the shaker well onto the hexagon background, I used my powder tool to remove any stickiness and static. I added the shaker bits, acetate, and finally the top frame. Don't forget to stamp your sentiment on before assembling the shaker! 

There is a snowflake on the reindeer's sign... if you squint you can see it😆! (In real life, you can definitely see it...) You can put all sorts of things in the signs. I think the Mama Elephant set Holiday Bitties would work perfectly!

I used Lawn Fawn's Large Wreath dies and cut the bow out of felt. If my fabric glue didn't run out, I would've used that to glue my bow together. Instead I had to settle for glue dots so I hope the bow holds up! The background was first die cut with the Magic Snow Cover, then with the scalloped square.  I cut another scalloped square to create the back half of the card and glued the two pieces together so I have a cute little card.

Mama Elephant Little Merrysign Agenda (coordinating dies)

Mama Elephant Hexatag dies

Mama Elephant Mini Merry Messages

Mama Elephant Iconic Ornament (for the snowflake on the reindeer's sign)

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

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

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
