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 or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!
This weeks, Belli Challenge is to make a project with your VALENTINES OR HEARTS!

Here is what you need to do...

1. Anyone Can Play! Spread the Word! :)
2. Make a completed project with your VALENTINES OR HEARTS

3. Share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC53. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or Paper Craft Planet or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC53 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!
4. I will do a drawing and the person whose name I draw will be a BELLI GUEST DESIGNER the Second week of March.
5. Deadline for entry is Tuesday evening 7 p.m. Central time.

Last week's winner was Suzanne- check her FABULOUS project out HERE. Her Quilting style is BEAUTIFUL!

I will post a tutorial to this in awhile - step by step coloring with Copics. So be sure to check that out when you have time!

Here are the details for this project:
Stamp Set: Love Blooms available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, All Holidays by SU

Ink: Copics, Black Brilliance Cardstock: Pink Pirhouette, Sage Shadow, Whisper White, Rose Red Accessories: Primas, Rich Regal Brads, Glue Dots, Doily, Corner Punch

Be sure to check out the FABULOUS Belli Challenge Design Team's creations!!! Leave them a comment! We all LOVE to know what you are thinking about what we create. I know it makes me SMILE when you leave me a comment.

Linda S. said...

Good Evening Chrissy....yes I am trying to soften you up for the blow!! I'm also thinking this is a "butt-ugly" Valentine's card. So sorry, but that is my opinion. I think the idea of Valentine's Day being so established as reds, pinks, white, gold, silver, even black has been so ingrained in me, that this card just doesn't make it. I have no problem with the layout, so it just must be the sentiment saying it is for Valentines day. I bet if I saw it with a "Happy Birthday" sentiment, I would feel entirely different. Weelllll....that's all for tonight. And,......guess I'll kiss MY chances at your next blog candy "Good-bye", Huh?? Goodnight, Linda

Kathy W said...

very pretty, can't wait for copic tutorial

Deb said...

SO gorgeous! I love the doily! This reminds me of a pretty porcelain teacup!

I am so excited I got to play this week! I combined SCS sketch and WT challenges and used a gift from my mom along with paper full of hearts! Here's my card!

Anita said...

I love your card, I made my card and added it to my blog and will be adding it to PCP later on.

Suzanne said...

I got my challenge for this week completed and it is on my BLOG.
I'm going to head over to PCP now and get it up there as well.

Thanks for the challenge.
