A Peacock Butterfly

So I've been working my way through a new Hero Arts clear set called From the Vault Bugs. It's made up of classic Hero Arts stamps. Yesterday's dragonflies are from the set as well. This, however, is my favorite card of the batch. It's based on THIS LOVELY PIN.

I colored the butterfly with Prismacolor pencils, which haven't seen use in a very, very long time. (I tried using them again today and flopped spectacularly!) The peacock shades of blue and green are gorgeous and make me very, very happy. I hope they make you happy, too.

The square mat is Hero Arts handmade paper, which I'm almost out of. A shopping order is in order, if you know what I mean.

I need more Thin 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives, too. Those are my latest love. This card didn't use them, but both cards I made today do. They give just the right amount of pop without so much thickness that you feel the need to add extra postage.

So what have you ordered lately that you love? Maybe something needs to jump into my cart before checkout!

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,


  1. I think I say this so often, but the phrase that comes to mine when I look at your cards is elegant simplicity. My recent purchases have been Easter-themed - a beautiful Botanicut Lily die from The Greetery and a fun Hop To It set from Taylored Expressions. Now to see if I put them to use before Easter. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.

  2. love this card and yesterday's as well. that blue green combo is fantastic. I made a smallish purchase of some waffle flower craft dies that I intend to use to make paper quilt cards. I've tried making my own squares etc and being off by a small amount ruins the look. That's my excuse!!! glad to see you posting more cards
