Papertrey Ink - Day 2 - Butterfly Blooms + A Bit More Butterfly Blooms + School days + Great Teachers + Big apple Die

Hello again, friends! It's Day 2 of the March Papertrey Ink Release Countdown and today is all about beautiful butterflies and school days. All of the new products you are seeing peeks of will be available March 15th at 10pm EST!

Up first from me is a peek at the beautiful new Butterfly Blooms set...

The detail in this set, and all of the bits and pieces included, make it simply gorgeous. To begin my card, I started by die-cutting flowers using the coordinating Butterfly Blooms die collection. I die-cut them out of white, pink and yellow card-stock. I attached all of the white flowers along the left side of my card front and then attached a few pink and yellow ones over some of the white. I stamped by sentiment and then die-cut two butterflies to place above that. Using my white gel pen, I made polka dots on the butterfly bodies. Lastly, a few clear and hot pink sequins complete it! 

My second peek for today is of the Big Apple Die and Great Teachers...

I started with a Kraft card base and die-cut my pink patterned apple (more on the new paper coming soon) and attached it off to the left side of my card. My stem and leave were die-cut out of Green Parakeet cardstock. I stamped my sentiment, from the new Great Teachers stamp set, onto a piece of white. I wrapped a bit of white twine around it before popping it up on my card with dimensional foam. To complete it, I die cut a flower from the Butterfly Blooms set and attached it to my apple, along with a clear dew drop!

That's all from me for Day 2. Be sure to check out the Papertrey Ink blog and the rest of the team to see what they have to share with you. 

Thanks so much for visiting with me. See you tomorrow with more Papertrey goodness!

  3. Hibiscus Burst and Bright Buttercup have your name written all over them, Melissa. Your bright and bold butterflies with the floral strip allows for lots of lovely white space. Your Apple card is also very cute.
