Butterfly Kisses Treats for Newton's Nook Designs, Sweet Treats Blog Hop, Valentine's Day, Die Cutting, #newtonsnook #sweettreats #valentinesday #butterfly

I googled what a group of butterflies is called, and one of the options is a kaleidoscope and I love that! so sweet!

these are actually pretty simple treats to create! I used some swirly twirly lollipops as the bodys. and I die cut out the wings with the Heart Frames Die Set

I used vellum, flocked paper for texture and the Springtime, Love & Meows, Love & Woofs and Love & Chocolate paper pads!
I attached the smaller, scalloped wing to the larger stitched wing by sewing them together with my sewing machine!

I die cut out the tags with the Banner Trio Die Set from light pink paper. and heat embossed the phrase from Heartfelt Butterflies!

love these guys!
I stamp the images from Wood You Be Mine and Toadally Awesome, then colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then sued the coordinating die cuts to die cut them out!

for the background, I die cut out the water from the Stitched Hillside Borders and then the grass from the Grassy Border

I also splattered the same colors onto the water.

I hope you're able to play along!
I used the new You're the Zest and Giant Outlined: Love Ya products!
I stamped the lemons, as well as the leaves from Be Hap-pea. then I colored them in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out!

I die cut out the big love ya with white cardstock, and then used Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Dried Marigold, Abandoned Coral and Tattered Rose. I backed the whole die cut with vellum for a soft feel!

I die cut out another card front with white cardstock using the Simple Stripes Diagonal. then I used Distress Oxide Inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber. then I splattered some water, ink color and white acrylic ink on top!

the sentiment was heat embossed in white onto a strip of pink cardstock and then popped up with foam tape.
