Good Tuesday morning! Are you always on the lookout for some new, and cute stamps? Well you are in for a real treat! The card I made today uses a new stamp from a new company called Belles n' Whistles. These new line of stamps are beautifully created by Elisabeth Bell and brought to us by none other than Summer of Roses on Paper!! This stamp is called Teddy Bear Picnic. I must tell you that I just love all of Elisabeth's work! She draws the cutest images! This month Summer has released 6 of the most adorable sets of stamps and you can get them all HERE!
All of these stamps are my favorite but I really wanted to make a card with this image since it's so perfect for summertime. I just love that she is having a picnic with her bears, reminds me of how my niece plays with her brand new doll house.
I had so much fun coloring this image and also had the opportunity to use my copic airbrush system for the background sky. If you love these stamps and would like to try and see if you can win all 6 of them, click HERE as Elisabeth is having a drawing on her blog!
If you love the fast and friendly service you get with Roses on Paper, you will get the same with Belles n' Whistles! Another awesome thing about these new stamps are the way that they come. Each of them are all mounted, cut, ready to use and have their very own storage panel with the image on the opposite side for easy identification! It really can't get better than this!!
I just want to share with you a few more gifts that I received for my birthday... it keeps on going!
This first photo is a gift from my gf Joy!! She is super duper sweet! Thank you so much, I love it all and can't wait to start using it!
This next birthday RAK is from another sweet and thoughtful friend Linda! She and I just LOVE Edward! Hey Linda did you see him on the Teen Choice Awards? Whoo Hoo!! =)
Thank you so much, I had to look at all the pics again just before posting this!! LOL!
Last but not least, I received a very pretty card from a fellow DT member and friend from Flutterby Wednesday, Ann. She is one crafty girl I tell you!! Such pretty creations. Thank you so much!!
Before I leave you with the details of my card, be sure to stop by Belles n' Whistles to get your new stamps, and to visit the Roses on Paper store for all of your crafting supplies. Be sure to take a look at all the new products added to the store this week!!
Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for all of your very appreciated and sweet comments!!
