Happy New Year and New Belles 'n Whistles Release Today!



Hello everyone! Wishing you all a very Happy, Joyous and Prosperous New Year!

I have some great news for you today! Over at Belles 'n Whistles we are starting the new year with a great and oh so gorgeous new release! 6 of the most adorable new Belles 'n Whistles images, illustrated by no other than the super talented Elisabeth Bell, are being released today!

These images are just perfect for your Valentine cards and projects throughout the year!

Make sure to check the Belles 'n Whistles Blog for all the information on the new release and my DT friends blogs to see all the wonderful samples they've made to show off the new release! You'll find their blogs listed and linked at the end of this posting or in my sidebar! And some more news.... there is also a SALE going on in the Belles 'n Whistles store! So lets do some bargain hunting;-)

For my card today I've used one of these new images called 'Sweet Love' and made an anniversary tri-fold card for my hubby. The image is colored with Copics (airbrushed the background around the image) and the heart in the background is paper pieced using the DP. Most of the hearts were die cut using my Spellbinders Nestabilities. Punches used are from EK Success and Martha Stewart. DP is from My Minds Eye CS is from Bazzill. The sentiments I've used are all stamps from The Greeting Farm. For decorating I used buttons, half-pearls, decorative pins (from making memories), ribbon, glitter, and Stickles. The swirls on the inside were cut out using my Cricut.

For a list of Copics used scroll down to the end of the posting!
