Hello My Lovely Friend - Resin

Happy Tuesday everyone! Danielle here up on the BRI blog with a super fun and easy card featuring Concord & 9th Banners & Bloom and Lawn Fawn Fancy Folded Banners die using resin.  This was so much fun and so easy!


I started off with die cutting a piece of pink shimmer cardstock and Lawn Fawn Sparkle Pixie Dust card stock (which is my fave glitter cardstock) using Lawn Fawn's Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables Die.  I adhered both panels to my card base using Mono permanent tape adhesive.  For my main panel I used a piece of Alcohol ink Yupo white paper and just loosely colored diagonally with various copic markers.  I wanted to try something a little different so I mixed some resin together and added some Lawn Fawn chunky glitter and glitter flakes to my resin mixture (when the resin has completely dried it will give the effect of the glitter "floating").  What I like about resin is that it creates a "glass" effect.  It's thicker than glaze and becomes hard and super shiny.  I then poured the mixture over my yupo panel.  Make sure your piece is level and to elevate your piece so the excess can drip off.  This resin is easy because it's self-leveling.  Once poured I set aside to dry (as it takes 24 hours for the resin to completely harden) 




While that was drying I decided to work on my sentiment and banner that I will add on top of the resin panel.  I ran the same pink shimmer cardstock through my die cutting machine using Lawn Fawn Fancy Folded Banners. This die is so versatile because you can build on to how many banners you would like.  Here I used two banners put together. I also used mirrored cardstock and added underneath my banner for dimension. I then used the sentiment from Concord&9 Banners and Blooms and stamped my sentiment using Versamark embossing ink and heat embossed using Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.



I added some Pretty Pink Posh Pearl White jewels for accents at the top and bottom tails of my banner.  Once my resin was dried I adhered my banner using foam adhesive tape.  I then adhered my entire resin panel onto my card using foam adhesive tape.  I truly loved making this bright fun card and I hope it inspires you try other mediums while card making.  


Thanks for stopping by see you next Tuesday and don't forget to stop by the shop and pick up these awesome goodies!!

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…
