5th Anniversary Day 9: Beautiful Butterflies & Lovely Leaves

Anniversary celebrations are starting to wind down, but not the inspiration! Today, we have a little bit of imagery that reflects all the beauty that nature has to offer.










Maile Belles has done it again. She has infused her signature style into another fabulous collection of stamps. The Beautiful Butterflies stamp set is a gorgeous collection of fancy butterflies in different shapes, sizes and directions. These silhouette shapes allow for you to play around with many different stamping techniques. Included are a few pretty sentiments, which will give you just the right touch when creating a card for someone special. To maximize your stamping options, pair this set with the coordinating dies. Whether you are looking to create a stunning focal point, a quick background or anything in between, this set has got you covered!

The details:

  • Beautiful Butterflies will be available for sale on February 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • The widest butterfly measures 2-3/4" x 1-5/8". The longest butterfly measures 2-1/8" x 2". The medium butterflies measure approximately 1-1/8" x 1-1/8", the mini butterflies 1/2" x 1/2". 'Happy anniversary…' measures 2-7/8" x 5/8" and 'Happiness…' measures 1-3/8" x 5/8".
  • Beautiful Butterflies die collection will be available for sale February 15th. It will retail for $10.
  • There are four dies in the collection. Butterfly A measures 2-13/16" wide x 1-3/8" high. Butterfly C measures 2-5/16" wide x 2-1/8" high.

Lovely Leaves is a set of simple and stylish leave images that will be a timeless addition to your stamp collection. You will find multiple uses including creating backgrounds, focal points and accents. Pair the leaves with some of your floral images or even floral embellishments.

The details:

  • Lovely Leaves will be available for sale on February 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • This set comes on a single acetate sheet. The branch measures 2"x 1". Each of the leaf cluster images measure 1-3/4" x 2". The 'Friendship lightens…' sentiment measures 1-7/8" x 3/8". The 'Love comforteth…' sentiment measures 3/4" x 1-1/4". The 'with gratitude' sentiment measures 1-3/8" x 1/4".

I'm happy to let you know that we're adding five new ink colors to our collection this month and the colors are some of our customers' favorites! On February 15th, you will be able to purchase Spring Rain, Simply Chartreuse, Smokey Shadow, Scarlet Jewel and Fine Linen. The colors are gorgeous and will be welcome additions to your ink collection.  All five of these colors will be available in full-size pads, cubes and refills.

You may notice that some of the colors feature a black lid rather than a clear lid.  Our manufacturer switched to this type of lid recently and the clear lids will eventually be phased out.

So now that I've explained all the details, let's take a look at the projects I've made.

 For my first card today I went with a Berry Sorbet and Kraft color scheme.

Stamped branches
I die cut the Mega Mat Stack 4 with Rustic Cream cardstock and created a mat for it with Berry Sorbet cardstock by tracing the outline of the die and cutting it out with scissors.  The cream layer was stamped with Background Basics: Sheet Music using Fine Linen ink.  I added the branches and dotted leaves (from Lovely Leaves) on top of that with Classic Kraft ink.

I die-cut the Beautiful Butterflies from Sweet Blush cardstock and stamped them with various patterns using Berry Sorbet ink.  I used the smaller blocks from Background Basics: Medallions on the top one, A Little Argyle for the middle and Background Basics: Newsprint for the bottom.  A Berry Sorbet button tied with cream twine adorns each of their centers.

I stamped the sentiment from Lovely Leaves onto Fine Linen cardstock using True Black ink.  I created slight waves int he strip and adhered it into place.

Shine Brighter Card
All of this was affixed to a Classic Kraft card base.

Sending Prayers Card
I went with a very simple layered design for my next project.  I love all of the fun layering and shadow effects you can create with these butterflies in Beautiful Butterflies.

I created my background first with Copic Markers, starting at the top and working my way down with the three colors, blending them together in between color changes.


The sentiment from Beautiful Butterflies was heat embossed with White Filigree Embossing Powder.  I absolutely adore the font combination that Maile selected for this set.

I added butterflies on top of the Copic background using Hawaiian Shores & Simply Chartreuse inks.

The simple focal point is adhered to a Hawaiian Shores card base.

Every Single Day Card
This project pairs up Lovely Leaves & Beautiful Butterflies.

Stamping leaves
I stamped the branch image three times onto Ocean Tides cardstock using Fresh Snow ink.  I then added the solid leaves image onto each of them with Oceann Tides ink.  As a final touch I added the dotted outline layer with Fresh Snow again.  Notice how many different looks you can get with Lovely Leaves depending on how many layers of imagery you opt to use.

I stamped three varieties of butterflies onto Melon Berry cardstock using VersaMark ink and cut them out.  I positioned them all along the branches to appear as though they were in flight.

I stamped the "Every Single Day" sentiment (from Movers & Shakers Sentiments) in Fresh Snow ink directly onto the card.  I then added the companion phrase onto a strip of Aqua Mist cardstock using Charcoal Palette ink.

Everything was placed on an Aqua Mist card base.

Birthday Butterflies Card
For my last card today I wanted to do something in the earth tones.

Butterflies closeup
I stamped the branches & solid outlined leaves from Lovely Leaves in Dark Chocolate.  I  colored the berries and added small flicks of color to the base of each leaf with Copic markers.  I stamped butterflies directly onto the card using Fine Linen ink.  I then stamped butterflies separately with Dark Chocolate ink and cut them out.  They are positioned around another one of the beautiful sentiments from Beautiful Butterflies.

I used the Edgers #1 die at the edge of the card and swiped the perimeter with Tea Dye Duo.

Thank you PTI for keeping things fresh and exciting month after month!

Each month’s release brings fresh new ideas and perspectives in regard to stamping that I would NEVER think of. I love Melissa B’s happy color combos, Dawn’s fresh take on colors and stamps, Maile’s one layer cards always inspire me, Erin always thinks outside the box in using stamps, Ashley, Betsy and Michelle have shabby chic down to a fine art, Jessica has a slightly modern twist to everything, Danielle is homespun but updated.

    The Design Team for Papertrey Ink has been my #1 source for Inspiration for the past 5 years. PTI has a wide variety of styles and since I am not always sure what I “want to create”, I enjoy cruising through their blogs searching for something that strikes my fancy and mood. Thank You PTI

    Kara says:

    All the PTI gals just constantly amaze me with their clever, creative, and beautiful creations. You can tell how this isn’t just a job for them. They all truly love the products and the wonderful cards they make with them. More than once during a release I went from not really caring about a stamp set in the sneak peak to adding it to my cart on the 15th and absolutely loving using it. Nicole, you have done such a perfect job of choosing past and present dt members. It’s obvious that you’ve done a lot of searching to find these amazing (have I used that adjective yet?) peeps. And this isn’t even referring to their designing talents. I’m going to have to google some more adjectives if I’m going to talk about that. I guess to sum it up, the reason you’re having a 5th anniversary is that PTI creates amazing, uber high quality products that are ever evolving and expanding (can I tell you how much I LOVE the dies) and an expert design team to show off how amazing it all is.

  • 381
    Lea Lawson says:
