Shimmering Flying Butterflies

 The curve of the Flying Butterflies Border is perfect for adding sentiments, don't you think? The butterflies were stamped on the focal image, then again on the background cardstock. The butterflies were painted with Shimmering Bliss in Vivid Volt and Dolphin Cove; then the same colors were sprayed over the background, too. You may find the items here:

Bee Flower in Full Color

 Our Beautiful Bee Flower stamp is so beautifully detailed and stamps with perfect detail. This stamp style lends itself beautifully to both simple coloring, and, as I've done here, coloring the image entirely. I used teals, blues, greens and yellow to make the image pop!

It's been a while since I pulled out my Pan Pastels, but they were perfect for creating my sunrise on this card! The sentiment is a great reminder to stand up for yourself and not be ashamed of it! You can find the Burns a Bridge stamp here:

The Limit is the Sky...

 It's graduation time, and our Sky is the Limit stamp celebrates that! Today I paired it with the graduate silhouette from the Graduation Greetings Set. I stamped the graduate on a larger piece of yellow paper, then cut around her hands and feet to help her pop off the page.

Calories Fall Out

 Wish that this was true! This stamp was inspired by a sign in a bakery window spied by my friend Pam! I stamped the two parts of the image separately to make this horizontal A2 card. You can find the Calories Fall out stamp here:

Live what you love!

 I am doing what I love, are you? Life is too short to do anything else.

Our focal image Live What You Love was stamped with Catherine Pooler ink and is layered over the flower portion of the Whimsical Daisies stamp. A little bit of Copic marker coloring and we are reminded to do what we love every day!
