Color Pop Butterflies

I'm still under the weather, so I'm going to keep the chatting at a minimum, but please feel free to leave questions and I'll get back to them as soon as possible.

Good morning, Friends! Welcome back for Day 4 of the Papertrey Ink countdown. Today we're showcasing Betsy's new Color Pop Butterflies kit and you're going to fall head over heels!

Color Pop Butterfly Cards

Butterflies are such a lovely symbol of hope and happiness and I couldn't be more thrilled to see them featured in this amazing new kit. The stencils and stamp set make it so easy to create bright, colorful butterflies in no time at all.

Don't Lose Faith Card

I started with the Don't Lose Faith card. I started by sponging and die cutting the three butterflies. I stamped them with the detail images included in the mini set in the kit and gently folded their wings upward for a bit of dimension.

Next, I sponged the card base with Aqua Mist and flicked on varying concentrations of reinker. I attached a frame from Erin's new Cover Plate: Delightful and added the sentiment from Inspired: Faith. I used flat and foam adhesives to adhere the butterflies and then sprinkled in a handful of rhinestones.

The second card uses the stencils to create a multicolor background.

You Make Me So Happy Card

I stenciled the different layers onto a white panel before adding the stamped details. I cut the panel with the Sentiment Splits: Curve Horizontal Die and layered the pieces over one of the patterned papers in the Color Pop kit, matching up the pattern. I left the patterned paper unstamped to give a bold contrast to the colorful panels.

Next, I sponged and die cut the sentiment. I also heat embossed the small companion sentiment and die cut that with the small banner in the kit. To finish the card, I simply attached those elements over the gap.

Next up, I have another King Of The Grill project to share.

BBQ Ensemble

Let's start with the invitation.

BBQ Invitation

I started by stamping an A2 Green Parakeet panel with Background Basics: Super Gingham in the matching ink. I created the pocket with the Monthly Moments: Journal Pocket 2 die and stamped it with the King Of The Grill burger.

BBQ Invitation & Insert

I assembled it and adhered it to the Green Parakeet panel. I stamped the By Invitation text onto a piece of Rustic White and embellished with a piece of patterned paper and a hole reinforcer. I tied on some baker's twine and tucked it into the pocket.

It wouldn't be a party without favors, so I also created a treat box using the new Fry Box die.

Fresh & Tasty Cookie Box

I created the box using Pure Poppy + White patterned paper. I stamped the Boxed Background Stripes on the inside for an extra pop of color and embellished with a Treat Box Tag Lines label. I tucked a sweet treat into the box that's sure to make any party goer smile.

So gorgeous. The split card is very pretty. I love the backing of the black paper and the choice of bright yellow for the wording. It makes the wording stand out so well. The framed card is beautiful too

The sponging on the corner of the card with flicks of reinker and then the white frame makes for such a beautiful card. I also like how you placed the curved cut colored butterfly paper exactly over the black and white print. What a cool look! And cookies in the "fry" box is a great gift. For being under the weather, you produced beautiful creations. You are a trooper!
