Rainbow Clouds with Shimmer accents

Hi friends! Kari with you today sharing this pair of rainbow cards featuring the Cloud Stencil from MFT.  This stencil has quickly becoming one of my favorite stencils for sky backgrounds, or creating colorful backgrounds like these.  I love clouds...and I love rainbow, so I thought I would combine the two.  They are so easy to put together, so that is why I created a pair, but you could easily make these assembly line style and have a whole bunch ready to go, and all you would need to do is add different sentiments.

I created these cards with the Thanks Hello die ( which is on sale currently in the shop).  You could turn these into any kind of occasion like birthday, thinking of you, even sympathy.

I used several colors of Distress Inks - Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Scattered Straw, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet.

I did do a little variance between the cards.  The left has been layers, and a few more colors, and the other the loved ROYGBIV order :)

Once I was done with my inking, I die cut both of my panels with the Small Stitched Rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn to give it a finished edge.  

I die cut four of the hello die cuts from black card stock, and layered two each to create one for each of my cards, and added the die cuts with multi matte medium from Ranger.  My sub sentiments come from the Halftone Circles set from Altenew.  I thought they were perfect for both cards :)

To give a little extra something to the clouds, I lined each cloud edge with a Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen. You can really see the shimmer when it catches the light and it makes a big impact on the simple design!  I also added some rainbow jewels from Little Things from Lucy's Cards. Then I just added them both to a A2 size black card base :)  

Thank you for stopping in today, and hope you have a happy week!
See you next Monday!

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…
