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! :)
