Fresh-Cut Flowers Shaker

Hi Crafty Friends, Julianne here sharing a shaker card featuring the MFT Fresh-Cut Flowers Background stamp. In May I attended a MFT class where we water colored this stamp set and I really wanted to create a card with this image using Zig Clean Color Pens. 
Using my MISTI I stamped the floral image around the border of some watercolor card stock. Since I wanted to watercolor the images I white heat embossed them using White Detail Embossing Powder from Hero Arts. It is really hard to see the images when you do this, but it gives some beautiful results once you start adding color. When using these markers, I love using a variety of colors to make my own. 
Once I had water colored all the flowers and background I really wasn't happy with the middle section, I just couldn't get a nice flow of color because it was such a large area so I decided instead of wasting it I was going to cut out the center only leaving a border around the flowers. I really like the way it came out, but it was scary for sure. 
I adhered a piece of Hero Arts Acetate to the back with liquid adhesive, if you don't have the sheets you can also use left over packaging. I die cut the friend sentiment die four times from white card stock and layered them together with liquid adhesive for added dimension before adhering it. 
I went back and fourth as you can see deciding on which color for the background and finally decided on black. I think it really brings out the colors and makes my sentiment pop as well. I did a double layer of foam adhesive to the back of my card before adhering it to the black cardstock. Here is a list of sequins I used for the inside of the shaker, I used whatever I had on hand. (3mm Sparkling clear sequins4mm Sparkling clear sequins, Ivory Jewels)
Before adhering to my card base I added a sentiment inside the card as well as some additional sequins to the front. Thank you all so much for stopping by and checking out my card, I hope you like it. I can't wait to see what you create, Happy Crafting!

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

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
