Creative Belli Challenge



Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and time for another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The Belli challenge this week is to make fall/Thanksgiving projects with at least one leaf ....check it out on the Creative Belli Blog!!
I am really excited to tell you that our sponsor this week is Creative Cuts and More...an awesome online company that specializes in die cuts and die cut cardstock.


For this card I used the A2 Arch Window Card in Bazzill Textured cardstock and the color is called Hillary. I also used the chipboard leaves, painted them with Tim Holtz Crackle Paint and when dry, colored them with copics and markers. They were attached to the card with glue dots.

The leaves from Rubbernecker's Fall Trilogy set were inked up with Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and stamped onto the white cardstock. The Rubbernecker sentiment was lined up so it showed in the bottom pane and was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. The ribbon knot finished it off.

Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker Fall Trilogy and Rubbernecker sentiment
Paper: Creative Cuts and More A2 Arch Window card, Whisper White, Really Rust
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby RedAccessoriesL Creative cuts and More Chipboard Leaves, Ribbon, Glue Dots


This die cut card on smooth cardstock is called Square Scalloped Card 5 1/4-Square Window #02 and the color is called Grape Delight. I scored the front on the diagonal to add a little texture. The Our Craft Lounge wreath image from the Giving Thanks set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The bow was stamped twice, one was cutout, and popped up with dimensionals to hang on the outside of the cutout. Pearls in the corners finish it off.


One lucky winner will receive a free Halloween Castle Kit from Creative Cuts and More....how cool is that!!!

Two great projects, Joan! The leaves in your arch window are gorgeous and I love the scoring and the popped up bow on the scalloped square card. Lots of nice little touches! Great job!

I'm lovin' you window theme, Joan! That first one is so genius, and I just love the colors of your second card.

Thanks for your sweet words. After reading them, I instantly felt our kinship in being Army wives. I always felt it with stamping, but this makes it even sweeter ;) Thanks for your prayers, Joan.
