Belles ‘n Whistles “All Customer Blog Hop”

Welcome to the Belles ‘n Whistles “All Customer Blog Hop” We are so excited to be a part of this special release. Along this hop you will find those new releases. And we, as customers of Belles ‘n Whistles, get to play along using any of our favorite BnW Stamps…
Today we are celebrating the rebirth of the darling SweetArt girls designed by none other than Artist Elisabeth Bell. Belles ‘n Whistles now has a total of 17 SweetArt girls in their store. They were just too beautiful to be left sitting in the archives. Elisabeth Bells talent deserves better than storage, don’t you think?

If you have just popped in, it would be great if you started in the beginning, and hopped along with us. You will find the master list of participants over on the Belles ‘n Whistles Inspirational Blog. To keep things easy, please follow that list and leave a comment on each blog. Do you know why? Because YOU could win a stamp from Belles ‘n Whistles, just for leaving some love along the way. There will be FIVE winners chosen randomly from comments that have been left along the way. No one knows who’s blog the winners will come from.

So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, tea, or Lemonade and enjoy all the fun and exciting things we, the Belles ‘n Whistles Customers, have to share with you today.

For my card I used Belles 'n Whistles Fairy Friend collection stamp called "Dragonfly Flight", such a cutie. My DP papers are Botanical from Prima and my image is colored with my copic markers.

For the dragonfly I applied glossy accents to the wings then sprinkled Glamour dust and let dry. Afterwards I added glossy accent to the dragonfly body. Love the texture it brings.

My flowers are WOC and Melissa Frances, I also added Stardust stickles to make it sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win, your next stop is at the talented Chelsea Le
