RemARKables 25th Anniversary Blog Tour - May - Best of Butterflies

Finally getting enough of a breather to come back and fill in the details for you all on these projects. If you begin below the first photo, all the pertinent info starts there. I haven't had time to upload the pattern to share it here, I will update again once I get that done.
Thanks again for your understanding! 

Hello stampers - 

Due to a family emergency, I will have to come back and fill in the details of these projects later today. 
I have measurements and a pattern for you for this project too. 

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers today. 
Thank you, 

I had such a great time creating the projects for this month's "Best of 25" blog tour. Wanna know why?? :)
I got to play with NEW products and colors!
For this sweet butterfly box, I used the new Strawberry Slush In Color cardstock as my box base. The wrap is the patterned window sheet from the New Specialty Designer Series Paper - Quatrefancy. It was cut out with the Pop n' Cuts Card Base Die for the Big Shot.
There are two pieces of this window sheet in the paper package - love that!!

The ribbon for the handle is the soon to be retired Daffodil Delight Taffeta (insert sad face here) - I love my taffeta ribbon. I used the Large Oval Punch to create the handle openings for the ribbon to tie around.

Here's a close up of the flower:

The Whisper White border is actually the Lace Tape from the Spring Mini Catalog - that's still available also until May 31st! 
But check out the flowers and that sparkly butterfly! 
The bottom flower is punched with the Blossom Punch out of the NEW In Color Designer Paper in Coastal Cabana. The middle flower is one of the Daffodil Delight printed cardstock flowers from the Bloomin' Bouquet Kit that is available as a special offer right now. 
Now, that butterfly - I took some Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder and mixed it with some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. The butterfly was stamped in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock and heat embossed with the fun powder mixture. It's SO sparkly in real life - couldn't get a photo to do it justice. 
I punched it out with the Butterfly Punch and like the Daffodil Delight flower, used my Bone Folder to curl the wings before attaching it with a Glue Dot.
Do you love it??

Here's the sweet and simple Note Card with Envelope that I created:

I got a little sparkle happy with the embossing powder mixtures, here, I mixed Pool Party Embossing Powder with the Iridescent Ice. I came out so soft and elegant. The perfect foil for the Crisp Cantaloupe butterflies stamped on the card front! (That's a new In Color too!)

The greeting is from another NEW stamp set - Really Great Greetings. Yes, really, that's the name, "Really Great Greetings"! I inked it in Baked Brown Sugar - yep, another NEW In Color! 

The punched out butterflies here were curled and adhered with Glue Dots. Easy-peasy!

I hope you've enjoyed your stop here at my blog on the tour, you've still got lots of great ideas ahead of you so be sure to keep going! Just click on this icon to go to the next blog, you're headed for Andi Potler's blog next.
