Chrissy's Wednesday Belli Challenge #1

Belli Challenge, you wonder? Holly came up with it actually - short for embellishments. LOL

I decided today that I LOVE challenges and I have a TON of embellishments, but get stuck in ruts and tend to use the same thing all the time - So talking with some of my girlfriends- we decided that we need a Embellishment and/ or technique challenge!


So this is the FIRST challenge - Use Your BEADS! Anywhere on a card or 3-D project! Micro Beads or colored beads.... You will probably need your Red Sticky Tape!

If you are like me, you have them and they lay there - you over look them because it is just not the first thing you think about picking up when going to grab your embellishments. Right?
If you do this challenge - post a reply here with the LINK to your card and a mention of this blog in your notes. I would LOVE to see your art work! I will use a random drawing and the person whose name was drawn will recieve a FREE pack of Stampin' Up! Sticky Letters from me! Deadline to make a comment and do the Challenge will be on Monday evening. A random drawing will be held on Wednesday and the winner will be announced on Wednesdays!




Here are the ingredients for my card:


Stamp Sets: Print Bg, Friendship Blooms, Celebrate Everything! Classic backgrounds,

Cardstock:Whisper White, Ballet blue, Real Red

Ink: Ballet Blue CRAFT ink, Ballet blue classic ink, Real Red

Accessories: BEADS! Red Duo Beads, Sticky Letters (LOVE THESE!), On board Blossoms & Basics chipboard, 1/4" circle punch, Dimensionals, Red striped ribbon, Bold Bright Brads, Tabs punch, Corner punch, Paper Piercing template & tool, mini glue dots -

If you upload your card to SCS make sure you put BC1 in the subject line so we can find it easily.


Thank you for looking! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Ya know, I bought some micro beads from Holly a few months ago and haven't used them yet! This is a great challenge...I will have time to make something tomorrow afternoon. Sounds like fun, Chrissy!!

Hello! I'm not much of a cardmaker, but I am a scrapbooker. Here is a layout that I did with beads:
