To A Beautiful You with Heartfelt Creations

I'm so loving this collection from Heartfelt Creations...Sunrise Lily.  It's just beautiful and delicate as so many of their collections are, but the colors are rich and different.  Of course glitter makes everything better and I've coved the bouquet with dries clear glue topped off with glitter.  The flowers also had some glitter added to pull everything together. 

Be sure to head over to Heartfelt's Blog today and see all the beautiful work from the rest of the design team.  Also if you haven't voted be sure to vote for your top five returning design team members that you'd like to see continue on.

Graphic 45 = How many cards?

I thought it would be fun to see how many cards I could get out of ONE SHEET of Graphic 45 paper....can you believe I was able to create five great cards? 

This is from the Cityscapes line that was released at CHA.  I love the color scheme of this collection and paired with black....perfect. 

Here are some close up of all the different cards...also be sure to stop by Graphic 45's blog and see what other beauties we've created with the Cityscapes collection.

I so love Butterflies with Crafter's Companion

 Well my new passion is butterflies.  When my son Will was alive I adored bees.  They are one of those things in nature that just can't be explained and yet they are a miracle of that became Will's little mascot the honey bee.  Now that he has transformed and is made whole again in heaven, butterflies have become something that remind me of him.  Oh I bet there are butterflies all over heaven like we have never seen. 
This is a card I created for Crafter's Companion and I love the butterflies throughout but I was able to make it extra special and sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens....YUM!!!!
I love the butterfly and the way he is going to take flight and just flitter off the card....
Need a tip?  Don't be afraid to blend your colors with the Spectrum Noir Sparkles.  You can use a stamp block to blend the colors.  It makes for a perfect little palette.
