Is this exciting or what?

Many of you may remember the Sweet Art Ebony girls designed by the very talented Elisabeth Bell. Well ...  They're BACK, and better than ever.  

It's time to meet
"Belles Strawberry Tea"









I couldn't resist making a strawberry shaped card to go along with this adorable little   sweetheart.  And believe it or not, I've created this Strawberry style paper myself.  =)  You may see something here that looks like smeared glue on the edges of this, but actually it's a bit of red gel glitter.  In real life it looks pretty cool, but for some reason my camera did not pick up that part....  =(

Belles Strawberry Tea is part of
Belles 'n Whistles "NEW" Sweet Art Girls Collection

Next up, a brand new line of stamps
also designed by our beloved Elisabeth Bell. 
The Fairy Friends Collection

I decided that I was NOT going to create a card for this one.  I wanted to mix it up a little bit.  So I decided to create a little 3D scene.  This has already found a perfect home in my nick-knack cabinet.  I just don't think it gets any cuter than this.

I have really gotten into creating 3D things lately.  It's not only fun, but seems to be quite relaxing to watch and see how a tiny idea can be built in something adorable.  =)  I have a couple of different views for you to see....  There are 2 stamps featured on this project from the new "Fairy Friends Collection" from Belles 'n Whistles. 

I used "Garden Friends" and "A Fairy Nice Flower".  I fell in love with that adorable Garden Friend Snail.  TOOOO CUTE!!!

Here they are close up....



I can't even begin to tell you how much fun it was to color this image, and then start planning my 3D display.  

Here I have another angle for you to see, from above.


In the back corner you see "A Fairy Nice Flower" also another absolutely precious stamp to own.  I am "Fairy" truly in love with this new collection.  The mushroom is actually made out of a cardboard tube, and many many punched circles glued on top of a half of a styrofoam ball.  The Butterfly is from one of the Spring Kits from WoJ.  The grass is actually PAPER Easter Grass.  I love that stuff.  I should probably stock up on it before the Easter season is over, so I have some for ALL YEAR.  The little flowers are from "Got Flowers" and the little lady bugs were removed from tiny miniature clothespins.   I coated everything with some modge podge in order to preserve it, and give it a glossy finish.  As well as to keep things stiff and staying exactly where I wanted them to be.
I hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog today!  Both of these new collections are available RIGHT NOW at Belles 'n Whistles.

Please don't forget to leave a comment here for a chance to win one of these fabulous new stamps.  Now it's time for you to hop on over to our sweet Iris' blog and see what gorgeous creations she has to share with you today.  =)
