Introducing....The Bella Rose Collection

After much anticipation, Heartfelt Creations is proud to present this month's release...

"Bella Rose Collection"

This collection is just STUNNING!  It's been through the wringer too.  It's been through a real storm getting to this day, but it's weathered the storm beautifully, all to the grace of God!!!  If you love the beauty of roses, trellis designs, collage elements and little insects that help your garden grow, then you'll definitely LOVE this collection. 

"The Bella Rose Collection features 8 new PreCut Sets. The Bella Rose Collection features eight new PreCut Stamp Sets that coordinate with a new exclusive Heartfelt Creations die set, manufactured by Spellbinders. Please leave a comment on my blog and/or the Heartfelt Creations blog by May 17 and one lucky person will win the entire release valued at $149.99. The winner will be announced on the HC blog on May 18."

Now on with a few projects to tempt your muse...

For this card, I stepped away from my Copics (SHOCK!) and went "Old School" with my colored pencils and Gamsol.  I thought the rose needed a bit more of a rustic feel and that I could achieve using my colored pencils and a bit of distress ink. 
My second card was actually my first....Created before the storm...Like I said, this collection went through a BIG storm and...just like a butterfly travels through storm and struggle, it finds a way to get home...This collection did the same, it's home and more beautiful than ever! 

I created this card for my mom for Mother's Day.  I just LOVE the collage design in this stamp set and I really felt I needed to continue the theme with the beautiful butterfly in the collection...Just a bunch of traveling ladies..Powerful and so significant.  Don't they look like they are resting after a long, long journey???
Here's a closer peek at the distressing I did on the collage itself.  I love the rich colors and the pop of the sparkles...
Hope you had the opportunity to spend time with your mother (or said some prayers for ones since passed).  Stop in again!
