Hot Diggity Dog Shaker Card

Hellooo crafty friends! It's another Monday in October and I have another Halloween card for you! Here was my creative thought process with this card: I wanted to create a very traditional orange-and-black Halloween card. I also wanted to make a full panel shaker card. I absolutely love the hot dog dachshund from Paperie Ink's Happy Haunting set. I loooove puns. TA-DA! And this is what I came up with!

First, I stamped and colored the adorable hot dog doggie with Copic markers (dog E13, E15, E18; hot dog costume E30, E31, E34, R24, Y17) and fussy cut the image. For the background, I used the emboss resist technique by stamping my images and heat embossing clear embossing powder. Then I ink blended Distress inks (mustard seed, spiced marmalade, carved pumpkin, ripe persimmon, black soot) and then wiped any excess ink off the images. (You can do the same technique with Distress Oxide inks.)

To create the full panel shaker, I cut a piece of plastic (recycled packaging from a stamp set!) larger than the background. I applied anti-static powder to the panel and plastic. I pre-folded the sides like I was wrapping a present and taped the edges to the back of the panel but left the top side open. Then I added the shaker elements and sealed up the panel.

For the sentiment, I cut out the letters using Finley's ABCs by Lawn Fawn and used my Xyron sticker maker to apply adhesive. (You could also use dot tape runner.) The sentiment banner was stamped using Claire's ABCs by Lawn Fawn and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I used Everyday Sentiment Banners by Lawn Fawn to cut it out.

That's it! This type of shaker card was definitely easier to make than the traditional "well" style of card with layers of cardstock or foam tape. If you haven't made this type of shaker card, I encourage you to try it! Thank you so much for stopping by the BRI blog! Have a crafty day! 💖Jenn

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

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 vel
