PIGMENT SCRUNCH AND A BELLI ANNOUNCEMENT

Good morning! I have been a busy stamper this weekend...I seem to have been on more of a "PURPLE KICK" this week and this card lends itself to no acception! :) I used a background sheet I had remaining from the Technique Junkies (http://www.patstamps.com/) Pigment Scrunch. One great thing with many of those techniques, is when you make them, many times it creates more than one project. So I actually have several sheets than I set askide for later or sometimes I get on a roll and create a lot of projects at once. I included the link because for whatever reason, blogger doesn't like the link when I try to link up with a word.
Here are the details of this project:
Stamps: Digi-stamp Gossamer Wings available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Heard from the Heart SU
Cardstock: Lovely Lilac, Basic Black, Whisper White
Technique: Technique Junkies Pigment Scrunch
Ink: Colorbox Ink, Basic Black
Accessories: Mini Pearls, Paper Snips, Printer, Ribbon, Primas, Scalloped Edge Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack
Tomorrow is BELLI CHALLENGE DAY and here is some special information! For a little over a year now, we have been doing a Challenge called Chrissy's Belli Challenge. I started it with Danita and Holly, but kept it up and running until recently when Holly and Danita have started helping a bit more with some administrative things, so we decided to create this blog AND change the name...because it really isn't about me - but using up our supplies!!!


This week, we will start hosting the Challenges here and you can all HOP over to the Design Team's Blogs which are located on the sidebar... We will also be featuring Mr Linky, so you can participate here as well!

In addition to that exciting news, we will be doing two different things -

1. Every other week, we will be having a Guest Designer...
2. We are looking for Sponsors for prizes! Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is generously offering some Digi-stamps. If you know of anyone else who would like to sponsor us one time or every 4-6 weeks, we would LOVE it!


We have a new Banner and would be SO honored if you put it on your blog! This Blinkie and Banner was designed by Dani at Dani gets Crafty! I absolutely LOVE her style - clean and simple and WOW. My mind does not go there when I stamp so I admire this style because I do not do it well. Go share some love to Dani. I think she did a beautiful job on the banner and blinkie!

Now for some of you who may be new to the Belli Blog, you may wonder what in the heck our Belli's have to do with Paper Crafting!?

What is the Belli Challenge you ask?Belli's = Embellishments. 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!

Be sure to come back on Wednesday to participate in this week's BELLI CHALLENGE! Thank you for stopping by! Have a FABULOUS DAY!

Have just started coming out from under my rock. I think I have almost beaten this sick bug! I was browsing your past entries and I am loving the butterflies, the cross tin was super cute with the chocolates in them and I especially liked the birds with the spring branch - great job despite your little munchkins also catching the bug - hopefully we can get together soon!!
XOXO

Congrats on the new site for the new Belli challenge....already changed and linked on my blog...now to get motivated to stamp again. Just haven't been able to get back in the groove with all the germs going back & forth here.
Hope you all are on the mend!
Lots of hugs!
