"2015" New Year's Eve Shaker Card

Hi crafty friends Joann here with you today! I hope everyone is having fun getting ready for the new year!

Today I am sharing with you a shaker card! I am totally in love with these types of cards, they are so fun to make and my family totally loves them.

Here it is:


I took the small images in the Lawn Fawn Snow Day and Avery Elle Cake & Candles Stamp Sets with some Gold Delicata Ink (this stuff is FABULOUS) to create my background. I tend to forget about those smaller images all the time and I'm glad I was able to put them to good stampin use, lol!

I then took some CTMH Black card stock and cut a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 square and used the 3rd largest rectangle from the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles Stackables to create the open area in the middle. Placed some clear transparency and added a few layers of Kool Tak Clear Foam Adhesive (great stuff when you are making a shaker card that includes black on black to help hide the adhesive) to the back. I die cut some MFT Die-namics Sequins from gold card stock, this die set is nice because it has larger sized sequins to help add variety and also you could customize your sequins to fit the colors for your projects when you don't have any on hand.

Finally, I took Lawn Fawn Finley's 123s and cut "2015" out of some more gold card stock to help match the sequins in my shaker.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card. Have a safe and Happy New Year!

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…

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 …

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&#…
