New Make It Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals


Today's Papertrey Ink group post features Betsy Veldman's newest Make It Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals. This is such a fun product collection -- it's got stencils, folks -- whoop! Everything is designed in such a way that you can't wait to just play, play, play. Whether you stick with stamps and ink and paper or add in some different mediums and materials, like modeling paste, watercolor, fabric paint and fabric, spritzes and mists, you're sure to have fun exploring all the different possibilities. I have two cards to share today and a big pile of extra panels just waiting to be turned into cards and other projects.

The Make It Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals, along with all of the other February release products, will be available at 10 pm EST February 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.


For my first card, I chose one of the ready-to-stencil patterns in the Color Pop Florals paper collection. The background is black and all of the flowers and leaves are white, just waiting for that pop of color. The three different stencils line up perfectly with the white shapes, making it super easy to inking on color exactly and only where you want it. After I did the sponging, I went back in with the detail images, stamping some in color and embossing others in white.

I love the bold look of the colorful background. It reminds me of fabric. Behind the gold sentiment (die-cut from a Luxe Gold Adhesive sheet), I softened the pattern with a circle of vellum framed with Hibiscus Burst card stock. For contrast I added a simple strip of black and white striped paper, and last I added a stenciled/stamped/die-cut flower accent to the pink frame.

For my next card, I wanted to try a whole different look, something much softer. I used the Color Pop Florals large flower stencil to ink the large flowers in white and the leaves in turquoise, all on an Aqua Mist panel. Next, I used the small flower trio stencil and spread on some white embossing paste. Last, I added the flower and leaf details using stamps and ink.



The white large flowers are a nice subtle look. They're a little more pronounced in real life than in the photos. The sentiment is die-cut three times and stacked for some extra weight.



In the centers of each small flower, I added some black dots with a fine-tip Sharpie.

Hi Amy,

PLEASE STOP TORTURING ME!!!! I cannot bear any longer! I want it all and I can't because my pocketbook refuses to birth more money, and believe you me I have tried EVERYTHING to no avail! I have to choose and it's NOT FAIR! It is as choosing one child over another, well not really, but you get me, right?
Those cards are GLORIOUS, I will be loosing my sleep until the 15th, adding and subtracting,choosing and bawling my eyes out!

Cariños,
María Alba

Amy, you certainly did justice to Betsy's new kit, which is no surprise. Especially love all the extras done on your first card and focal image from the pink circle, vellum, gold and scalloped edge. Beautiful work once again!

I have no idea why I've never thought to use embossing paste to make flowers! (I don't have a stencil but I could make my own with some floral dies). Both cards are lovely.

Lovely colour combo with the black background.
