What is the Belli Challenge you ask? Each week, I try to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!

Come join us in the Belli Challenge and be sure to post your link to this website!This Weeks Belli Challenge is ANYTHING with a CONTAINER!! You can make Embellish or design MANY different things with any CONTAINER theme. If you do not have a container, use a stamp you do not use often for a container...otherwise, think outside of the box and go with something like a tin you have had laying around, a flower pot, soda bottle, box...In fact, if you SEE IT, I challenge you to DECORATE IT! LOL

Make a completed project using anything CONTAINER RELATED item and share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC28. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC28 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!

I will do a random drawing for all participants and we will feature that persons art work on my Blog AND they can pick a week to be a Guest Designer for the Belli Challenge!

I made this project and was hoping I would have this in the person's hands by now, but have I told you? There is a Black Hole between my mail box and office and things have a hard time making it from there to the post office. LOL

So here is my creation...
No Stamp Sets!
Paper is by Top Line Creations
Rub Ons -Eastern Elegance
Tin ...oh and don't forget the chocolate!!!

Check out these and make a comment too for them please! We all LOVE comments. It is fun to see what everyone is thinking about what we are creating! :)

Chrissy, this is so cute!!! You and Laurie must be on the same wavelength - doing black and white today. :-)

Rochelle W said...

I love the black and white. So elegant. Your tin is gorgeous. I like how you used the rub ons.

Doris said...

Anybody have an idea on what to use empty Altoids gum containers for? They really are a challenge because they're small and have a domed lid. (unlike their mint containers.) I've been saving a bunch of them, but haven't figured out how to use them yet. Help!!
