Sweet Release Blog Hop!!!

Hello and welcome to the Belles N Whistles 

Blog Hop Release!!!

The hop officially starts from the Belles N Whistles blog. :)
Stamps are all available and ready to ship! 

You should have arrived from the lovely Iris' blog. 

I've used Happy Mail for my first card. She is from the SweetArt girls collection and yes, she was one of the earlier released images from Sugar Nellie. She was colored with Copics. Edges were sponged. For the card base, I stamped flowers with Memento Sahara ink. Card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Very easy to look at but I had a hard time finishing this card. Very happy with the turn out. :)

My second project is my favorite (took me longer to make) This is 6" x 6" and honestly not a card - maybe a scrapbook cover?  I used Fairy Fond Thoughts. She was colored with Copics. Background was airbrushed. Made an extra pair of wings on vellum and added Viva Glitter liner. Her wings are not fully adhered, I folded the edges to make them a bit 3d. Viva gold pens on the flower centers and her hair ribbon. Viva blue pen for her beaded strap. Viva pink for the flowers on her dress. Yep, I love these Viva pens. 

The paper is Webster's pages Collection pack. No idea what the name is because it's old.  It's really gorgeous and I wanted to use the background for her. The edges were lined with gold pen. I also used  Spellbinders floral doilies motif around the round frame.

Sorry to blab and thank you for making it this far.
Please make sure to leave comments on each blog for a chance to win free stamps 
and one lucky winner will win a BnW $65 Gift Certificate from the Belles N Whistles blog!!!!

Now off you go to dear Elise's blog!

Have a wonderful time!!!
