Christmas Shaker Tag

Happy Tuesday everyone!  So glad to be back with you this week.   I am getting ready for Christmas even though it will be in the high 80's and even the low 90's this week.  Recently I ordered a ton of wonderful goodies from the store and couldn't wait to get inky! 

Here is a fun shaker tag I made. 

Let me walk you through the steps I took to make it. 

First I used the Lawn Fawn Say What? Tag Dies and cut out three of the tag bases.  I cut one from white cardstock, one from green Gingham from Sunny Studio and one from acetate. I then cut10 of the stackable tags out of white cardstock.  I stamped to and love from the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags Sayings stamp set in Gina K Amalgam Ink, filled the heart in with a red copic marker and adhered the two tags back sides together. 

I adhered one of tag frames to the acetate base and the rest of the frames together.  I used Lawn Fawn Glue Tube to adhere them all together and then finally to the green tag base.   I then filled the base with loose sequins.  To put the tag together, I adhered the acetate backed tag frame to the rest of the tag to close it off.  

Using the super cute Sunny Studio Happy Owlidays stamp set I stamped the present and owl image with Gina K Amalgam ink and colored them with copics.  Adding some fun detail, I dotted the present with a White Gelly Roll pen and then I cut them out with the Happy Owlidays die set and then adhered them to the front of the tag with thin foam adhesive.

Adding an extra touch I used the green and red Lawn Trimmings Twine to finish it off.

Hope you enjoyed the tag!  I have to say I am super excited to make many more just like it.  Enjoy your day!

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&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
