Out of This World

Good morning, friends! It's Rubeena here from a rare ruby, featuring Altenew today. This was really fun and simple to make. If you don't know by now, I love creating backgrounds with distress inks! Different combinations create unique looks for skies.

For this card, I used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky, Shaded Lilac and Victorian Velvet. I took white cardstock and created this background with round blending foams, starting from the lightest to darkest and then darkest to lightest. I spray white ink spray and shimmer spray over the background once it's done to cover those slight imperfections.It'll take some practice for me to get it right without those circle outlines. :)

I stamped the large circle from Altenew's To The Moon and stamped it in white pigment ink on the top right of the colored background. Ever since this set came out, I've been dying to play with it! You may not be able to see it in the pictures but I stamped one of the moon layers using Delicata silver shimmer ink. The last moon layer was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed using white embossing powder. I used VersaMarker to create an outline of the moon and heat embossed in white. I added stars from WPlus9's Unforgettable stamp set and stamped them in white pigment ink.

The sentiment "you're out of this world" was stamped in VersaMark on black cardstock and heat embossed in white. I added foam tape and circles of silver thread to the back and attached it to the front. The whole layer was cut slightly smaller than A2 size so that the white outlines on the side could create a wonderful contrast to the colored background. 

What do you think?? I feel like making a couple more (after my finals). :) Thanks for visiting! Keep coming back for more inspiration.

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…
