Rubbernecker Wacky Wednesday and Creative Belli Challenge #58

Can you believe it's Wednesday again....where does the time go??? I have 2 challenges for you today....Rubbernecker's Wacky Wednesday Challenge and the Creative Belli Challenge #58.

Each Wednesday, for the Wacky Wednesday Challenge, a different Design Team Member will post a weekly challenge. Now here's the fun part for you! We will be giving away 3 certificates each week to 3 different participants who play along. The certificates will be good for 25% off your entire order at Rubbernecker Stamps. All you need to do to participate, is upload your card (preferably using Rubbernecker images but not mandatory) to any online gallery and/or blog, and post a link to the challenge blog post. In order to win, you must post a link back by Monday of the following week. Winners will be announced on Tuesdays. You might be asking why Wacky Wednesday. Well, for no other reason than the challenges will not be the same and are the choice of the Design Team member posting. BTW, feel free to add the Wacky Wednesday blinky to you blog!!!

The Wacky Wednesday challenge on the Rubbernecker Blog is hosted today by none other than Kittie Caracciolo!!! Kittie's challenge for us is to make a card using a fold other than the standard fold. I chose to make a double fold card.
The adorable Rubbernecker Bunnies For Sale image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The mushroom dp is by Imaginisce, Fleurettes and scallop punch by Stampin Up! and ribbon my Papertrey Ink.

Martha Stewart punched ferns and a button were added and the image layers were cutout with Nestabilities. Prism card stock from Rubbernecker was also used: Island Mist Light, Crabapple Light, and Blush Red Light.

The Rubbernecker sentiment was added to the inside along with the egg don't ask me why I used a lavender egg. Mabye because it was the only brad I had in my stash....maybe no one will notice that there is no other lavender anywhere on the card!!!

This picture makes the folds look crocked but they really are even!!!

The Rubbernecker Design Team, as always, will delight you with their creations. Be sure to visit their blogs for lots of inspiration!!!

Creative Belli Challenge #58

The Belli challenge on the Creative Belli Blog today is to use the cover of New Moon as our inspiration. Don't you just love the dramatic colors!!??!! I took my inspiratin from the tulip and the colors. You will find all the DT members inspiration cards on the blog but you will have to visit their blogs for the deets!!

For a little over a year now, we have been doing a challenge called Chrissy's Belli Challenge. It was started by Chris (chrissyd723) Dickinson to inspire us to use the *stuff* lying around our stamping spaces...those long forgotten goodies that we once had to have!! Chris, along with Holly Brown and Danita Hollander decided to create a blog AND change the name to Creative Belli Challenge.This is the second week to host the challenge on the blog. You can also visit all the Design Team's Blogs which are located on the sidebar... We will also be featuring Mr Linky, so you can participate with that as well.

I used the retired Stampin Up! set called Terrific Tulips and stamped them with Real Red and Old Olive. The sentiment is from See D's sentiments, the paper is from Basic Grey's Ambrosia and the Stampin Up! scallop punch was used for the scalloped edges. Ribbon, red pearls, and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly with a row of red pearls finish it off.

Be sure to visit the Creative Belli Design Team Member's blogs to read more details about their designs. You will find lots of awesome ideas!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast or PCP, be sure to add CBC58 in the keywords section.
