"Leave A Little Sparkle Wherever You Go"

Hi, Joann here with another card inspiration! Today's card is a shaker, I love shaker cards, there is just something about them that makes me super happy!



I started off with cutting out a top folding card at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 from some Neenah Solar White card stock and placing some designer MME Necessities Metallic paper sized at 4 x 5 1/4 on top. I embossed my sentiment on top using MFT You Were Meant to Sparkle Stamp Set, Versa Mark, and some Rose Embossing Powder.



To create the frame I used my ruler and paper trimmer to cut only the inside (the frame portion measures at 3 3/4 x 5). Now, I know many use foam adhesive to pop up their top layer for the shaker part, but I wanted to share something that I like to do instead. I bought this really inexpensive foam sheet from Michaels, I cut my stripes to fit my frame and glued them to the acetate sheet that's placed behind my frame (I'll be posting my first photo tutorial early next week on my blog to show what I'm explaining). This part made it much easier than having to cut each foam piece (depending on the kind you use) to fit the frame to keep the sequins in.

After cutting a few sequins out using MFT Die-namics Sequins I added and adhered a few sequins down and then placed my top layer down and added a heart from Amy Tangerine Bits Adhesive Chipboard Sticker after embossing it with some Aqua Zing Embossing Powder.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I did making it! Thanks for stopping by!

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 will work the same.  It&#…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …
