Rainbow Sunburst with Glitter Paste Overlay

Hi my friends!  Kari here with you today.  Rainbow's are all the rage it seems lately. I know I am certainly falling for them, and why not...they are happy and cheerful!  Well, I have featured a few rainbow projects with you since being on the DT this term, and I have another card inspired by the online card classes most recent class Rainbow Maker.  And, what is so great is you can find these products I've used over at BRI shop!

I started this card by creating my focal panel with a piece of Distress Watercolor Card stock.  I knew that I was going to have a lot of moisture, so I wanted to use a thicker card stock.  I used three Distress Oxide Colors ; Picked RaspberryFossilized Amber, and Salty Ocean.  I started in the middle of my card stock with a circular motion  and my ink blending tool with Picked Raspberry, then Fossilized Amber, and then Salty Ocean.  It looks as if I used more colors, but when inking the blue onto of yellow, you get green, and the yellow into the pink you get orange :)

Once I was happy with my blending, I got out my stencil.  The exact stencil I used has been discontinued, but I highly recommend getting the Radiating Rays stencil from MFT.  I plan on getting this one too!  Then, I used This glitter paste from Viva, or you could also use Tonic Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste.  I spread that out as even as possible with my palette knife, and then removed my stencil, and set my panel aside to dry for several hours.  Make sure you clean up your work surface and your tools used because you don't want that paste to dry onto your tools or stencil.  

Once dried, I actually cut my panel in half to make two cards.  I die cut a piece of Guava card stock and white card stock.  I used the Blueprints 27 biggest frame die, to create my frame for my focal panel, and then used the Stitched Cloud Backdrop to create an extra something to my focal panel.  Before adhering anything together, I stamped down my sentiment which comes from the Sending Love stamp set from Right At Home with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  

I adhered everything with liquid glue, and then adhered my panel onto a white card base.

I loved how I could get two cards out of this one panel.  I created this one specifically for today's post, but here is the second card in case you were wondering

Thank you all for stopping by, and I will see you right back here next Monday.  Have a great week!

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…
