The next Make It Market Kit for Papertrey Ink will be released on April 1st and it is entitled "Party Pops". Betsy has once again outdone herself! Party Pops is all about interactive birthday cards, tags, favors, gift wrap, decor and anything else you can dream up! Just wait until you see these dies! They provide several options for creating different types of interactive cards — pop-ups, lift-the-flap, and SO much more! These could potentially be THE most innovative products that Betsy has designed to date! She has even invented some clever tools to turn colorful cupcake wrappers into works of art. If there was ever a kit you didn't want to miss out on, it would be this one! Pop over to Nichole Heady's blog to watch all the videos on how these dies work.
Here are a few samples I created with the kit. Up first, I used the scalloped die as my card base with Aqua Mist cardstock. The white piece is cut from the liner die. Then instead of using the liner die on the INSIDE of the card like it was meant to be used, I used it on the outside of my card, so I could cut out the balloons from it and pop them up. I wanted to do a bit of colorful stamping on the front with the stamps in the kit. All of the pretty colors on the front of this card are stamped except the teal border on the bottom - cut from one of the patterned papers in the kit.
You can use the little cupcake holders from the kit as treat holders to place around the table like I did here. And notice the little die cut confetti? SO, so cute!
Here is one more card made with the scalloped die, and I used the cupcake die that doesn't cut at the top to partially cut out the cupcake to reveal a message underneath. "Lift here" is stamped in black on the flap.
Well, I hope you can see how colorful and fun this kit is! This is just the tip of the iceberg! Stop over to the other Make It Market gals to see more: Nichole, Melissa, Heather and our newest team member, Lea Lawson! Sending a big welcome to Lea!
