Belli Challenge #46 and Rubbernecker Blogger challenge #14

Good morning everyone!! It's another cold morning here in Central would think we are having winter out there!!!

The Belli Challenge was created by Chris (Chrissyd723) to inspire us to use the *stuff* lying around our stamping spaces...those long forgotten goodies that we once had to have!! Anyone can play, so get out your scraps, stamps, and embellies!! Check out Chris' blog for details on how to win the challenge!!

Today's Belli Challenge is to use wrapping paper to make a card. I had to dig deep to find this cute paper. What an easy peasy card to make!! I stamped the background with Rubbernecker Snowflakes using Riding Hood Red, stamped the Rubbernecker sentiment with Memento Black, added a few of the Riding Hood Red snowflakes, and distressed with Creamy Caramel. I added the Stampin Up! ribbon and a felt snowflake. I may have to make more of these...thanks for the great challenge, Chrissy!! Be sure to visit the Belli Design Team Member's blogs to see the beautiful cards they designed using wrapping paper!! You will find lots of awesome ideas!! Remember to check out Chris' blog to see how you can win!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast, be sure to add CBC46 in the keywords section.

Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge #14

Today's Rubbernecker Blogger challenge is hosted by Shelly and her challenge to us is to create a Christmas Card with non-traditional colors. Well, ya can't get much more non-traditional that orange and black!!

I stamped the Rubbernecker Poinsettia with Basic Gray and embossed with Ranger Bridal Embossing Tinsel. The poinsettia was then colored with an aqua pen and ink pads. I used Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Going Gray, and a touch of Mellow Moss. Black rhinestones were added to the flower centers and along the side. The Martha Stewart Fern Punch was used with Pumpkin Pie and going Gray cardstock, the Rubbernecker sentiment was stamped with Memento Black, and the white cs was sponged with Pumpkin Pie. The layers were cutout with Nesties and attached with dimensionals. The beautiful ribbon and Basic Grey dp finish it off.

Why don't you join our challenge....upload your creations to you blog and/or online gallery and then post a link in the comment section on the Rubbernecker blog for all of us to see!! Use the Keywords RNBC14 when uploading to Splitcoast.
