You're One Smart Cookie!

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday to you!
This is Tanya from Studio 5380 and I have a cute graduation card to share with you today.  This fun, shaker card is for my grandson, Brayden, who is about to graduate from Kindergarten....


I used some fun Lawn Fawn products to create this card for my smart little cookie.  The adorable images are from the Smart Cookie Stamp Set.  After stamping and coloring the images, I used the Smart Cookie Lawn Cuts dies to cut them out.  I also used the Scripty Congrats Lawn Cuts die to cut out the word "congrats".  I cut out the sentiment three times and layered them together using some Multi Medium Matte Adhesive.


To add a little sparkle, I covered the word "congrats" with some Frosted Lace Stickles.  I also added a bit of Glossy Accents to the glasses on my cute little cookie. 

While the Stickles and Glossy Accents were drying, I started working on my shaker frame.  Using the Die-namics Stitched Dome Frames die set by My Favorite Things, I cut out 3 frames from dark brown cardstock.  I glued those layers and a layer of acetate together using more Multi Medium Matte Adhesive.  Once it was dry, I flipped my frame over added some sequins.  I chose a few sequins in pretty blues and white from the Ocean Waves Sequin Mix and the Nature Sequins Mix by Neat and Tangled.


Once all of my card elements were completed, I put my card base together using a dark brown base followed by a bright blue layer. The top layer is from the Graphic Grid Paper Pad by My Favorite Things.  To finish my card I popped up my images with some Scotch Foam Mounting Tape and there you go...congrats to my Smart Cookie!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - see you soon!

  4. To get the best bed frame or mattress foundation, you need to know the type and quality of your mattress that you are using or going to use. You can use some mattresses with and some without a frame or foundation. However, we recommend using a foundation for every mattress whether the manufacturer instructed to use or not. We believe, a quality foundation can ensure more sagging prevention and longevity. But for that, you need to find out a perfect unit from the huge numbers of available models and brands out there on the market. The Zinus 14 Inch SmartBase Mattress Foundation can narrow down your choices.

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 …
