Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop


Today is the Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop.

The inspiration photo has lots of colors and flowers.

I recently got busy die cutting all the pieces in my Color Pop kits so that I have the pieces ready whenever I need them.

I laid out a pattern using the larger butterflies and added smaller ones as well as flower clusters. I really wanted to add white flowers so I die cut several from white card stock. After adding everything I decided to stamp a few of the white flowers with a pink center to break up the white.

Lastly I die cut the very small banner included in the kit and stamped For you.

I had extra butterflies so I made a second card using the new Fun Frames. I love frames, especially the ones from PTI.

I die cut the frame from Hawaiian Shores. A second rectangle also cuts out (I just replaced it with white) so you get two frames when you cut.

I embossed the sentiment Thinking of You using platinum powder. The stamp set is from Winter Wishes from SSS. The stamps were added using Melon Mambo ink.

I thought there was too much plain pink so I stamped sequins with versmark from Sparkle and Shine.

The butterflies were popped with foam dots. Ribbon was added after the pink was mounted to Aqua Mist card stock.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to hop around – I am always so inspired!
