Welcome to the second group post for Papertrey's April release countdown. Today we are introducing Color Pop Butterflies, the newest Make It Market mini kit by Betsy Veldman. Just like Color Pop Florals from a couple of months ago, this collection includes stamps, dies, a paper pack, and a three-step stencil collection.
The April release will be available at 10 pm EST on April 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.
I absolutely love the way all of these products work together! Product design at its best for sure. For this first card, I've used a little bit of everything in the kit. First I used the stencils and sponge daubers to add color to the butterflies and flowers on one of the Color Pop Butterflies paper patterns. Next, I used the stamps to add the details to the sponged areas. "So happy" is die-cut and colored with Copics and "for you" is stamped on a tiny sentiment flag die-cut. The flower trio and pair of leaves that anchor the sentiment flag are pre-printed designs that are included in the paper pack.

Dies: Color Pop Butterflies

For this next card, I went in a totally different direction, color-wise. I needed a card for a family that is going through a difficult time right now, and thought the butterflies and a sentiment from Betsy's Inspired: Faith would work together as a beautiful message of hope.
The large butterfly is stamped and die-cut, the smaller butterfly and the flowers are sponged through the stencils, then stamped with the details.
I popped up the Soft Stone panel to give that framed circle element some dimension. The Soft Stone panel is stamped with some subtle white lines using one of the stamps in Plaid Builder.
Last, I embellished with a few sequins and some Pinefeather Baker's Twine.

Paper: Stamper's Select White, Soft Stone, Stormy Sea, and Pinefeather card stock; vellum card stock
