Concord & 9th Mosaic Turnabout - Three Ways!

Hi there, Butterfly Ink-ers!  Kimberly from Kimplete Kreativity joining you here on the BRI blog today.   Don't you just love when you are able to create multiple cards from just one background?   Today I have three cards to share with you, all using just one background.   I found that after creating my first card I had scrap pieces left that were too fun to toss in the trash, so I just kept going, lol!

I started by stamping Concord & 9th's Mosaic Turnabout stamp using four colors of Catherine Pooler inks (Party Dress, Lime Rickey, Fiesta Blue & Sauna).   Next, I covered the entire stamped piece with a layer of Nuvo Glimmer Paste (in Moonstone).   I love how it lets the colors show through - like sugared candy!

Once the glimmer paste had a few minutes to dry, I used a circle die to cut a hole from the center of the panel.   I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in the center of a pink card base, and adhered the sentiment strip to the back side of the circle window.   To create a fun shaker card, I added acetate to the back of the focal panel, added some confetti from Studio Katia and sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, and adhered the piece to the card base with foam tape.

I kept looking at the pieces I had cut off after creating my shaker card and decided to use the scraps for several more cards.   This card uses the leftover strips as accent!   

The last card uses the leftover center circle.   I created rings by layering up the next smallest circle dies and running them through my die cutting machine.  I snipped the largest ring in half (two for one!) and adhered everything to the panel.   

Thanks so much for stopping by today!   I hope I've inspired you to create more than one card the next time you sit down to create!   Be sure to check out the Butterfly Reflections, Ink shop for all of the products I've used today - product links below!

Have a fantastic weekend! :)

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…
