Sunday releases - Heart Song Designs!

Morning everyone, well here we are another Sunday! I cant complain at the moment as I have hubby at home for a change on a Sunday, he is normally at the Track, so I normally have him at home only on a Friday! I cant believe that the weeks are flying by as they are, my youngest daughters first birthday is not far away now! cant believe she will be a year old!  

Well as the title says Im here to share a few new releases available from today over at the Heart Song Designs Shop!  Leah is so talented and i'm so fortunate to be able to play with her images!

First up we have Blooming Stars.  I love the butterflies, but then I have a weakness for butterflies! I have coloured the image but not made it into a card yet! 

Next we have Butterfly Fancy, this was released last week as a black and white line image, but is now also available in colour! I loved playing with this one, as it was pre coloured it made it so easy to layer, I didnt have to worry about making sure the colours were the same when i coloured (a bit lazy i know but...)! This is the first pre coloured image I have worked with and I can now see the advantages to them! If you need a quick and easy card they are grate, but you can also have so much fun with them!

This is the card I created using the image.  This is also my first ever Double Twisted Easel card! There is a tutorial over on the tutorials page, please take a look if you would like to see how it was created! I have made this for a friends birthday! 

I sized the image on my word processing document and copied and pasted it three times, so I would have three layers all the same size,  I arranged them on the page so one could be cut with an even border all the way around.  I then chose what elements I wanted to layer and cut them out. 

I mounted the base layer of the image onto centura pearl pale pink card and then added a bit of lilac with a scalloped edge at the bottom.  I then added the rhinestones in the middle of the scallops.  I chose dark purple bazzill as the card base to try and bring the image out more.  

You can see that the wings of the butterfly have been cut out and layered as well as the flowers.  I used silicone glue to raise the layers.   The punch I used is a Martha Stewart Punch that I purchased before christmas.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges;

Mami Doodles - Flowers
Tellens place - Birthdays
Meljen's Designs - Birthday
One Stitch at a time - Anything but square
Secret Crafter - Fancy Folds
Res-Q Challenge - Something that makes you happy (butterflies make me happy!)

Finally today we have St Patty Day Dream, What a lovely image with St Patricks Day just around the corner! Again I have coloured the image and not had time to 'make' it! I best get on and do some creating! 

Well I hope to be back later with some creations!
