Stampin' Up! Butterfly Floral Mother's Day Cards

Happy Thursday Peaches! I'm super excited to share today's projects with you!!! As you know if you've been following my latest posts, I've been working on getting my Mother's Day cards done. These are a few of my latest. A friend asked me how I get inspired to create my projects. I had to think for a second because sometimes I know that I can just go in my craft room and create till my head falls off. Other times I'm wracking my brain for ideas and feel so stuck creatively. When I'm trying to get ideas or inspiration or I am just struggling trying to figure out where to start, I always go where I feel the most inspiration. Now, strangely enough it's not always papercrafting that is my muse. More often I find it in a garment or bouquet of flowers. I've come to the realization that, for me, beautiful colors inspire me. I get so excited when I see the glint of multi-faceted color in a hummingbirds plumes or the stunning gradual change in color in exotic flowers. For me, seeing color and how it pairs so beautifully in nature gets my creative juices flowing. I encourage you to look for what inspires you, even if it's outside your craft room. Go for it!


Here's the inspiration I found for my cards.  Hydrangeas are absolutely breathtaking plants! They have the most gorgeous color gradients.


I love the soft purples and I thought they paired well with Pool Party. I of course needed some Sweet Sugarplum and silver. I used the gorgeous Butterfly framlits and Flourish framlits by Stampin' Up!, and here's my interpretation:
