Wacky Wednesday Challenge and Creative Belli Challenge

Good morning everyone!! It's time for another Wacky Wednesday Rubbernecker challenge!!! Today's challenge is a sketch challenge hosted by Tami Mayberry
Check out the Rubbernecker blog for all the deets and a bio of Ms. Tami!! 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.

The Rubbernecker Basket of Eggs image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. It was cutout and attched to the Lilykate Basic Grey dp with dimensionals. I used white, black, and Barely Banana cardstock and Primas, ribbon, and Candy Dots finish it off.

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

The Belli challenge on the Creative Belli Blog this week is to use wheels.....either a stamp wheel or wheels like on a car. It's your choice...just have fun!!!

My DH received a card for his birthday with this adorable hiking bear on the front. Since I am a major hoarder, I cut out the bear and added him to my stash of must use images. I pulled him out to use with the Stampin Up! wheel called Nature Hike. The trees were stamped on the top of the Kraft cs with Always Artichoke and the wheel was used on the bottom part using Close to Cocoa. The wheel was used on a scrap piece of Kraft with Close to Cocoa, the signs were cutout, and attached to the main image with dimensionals.

The bear was attached over the background with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped with Always Artichoke, layered over a scrap piece of AA, distressed, and attached with dimensionals. Distressing was done around the background and a clip with orange twill was added for the finishing touch.

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 CBC59 in the keywords section.

That Belli card blows me away!! Not only is it a GREAT card--but the fact that you used something you hoarded--I am so impressed. (I save stuff--but I am too unorganized to locate it when I need it).

Beeeautiful Easter Basket!! I love the colors you chose--and the coloring!!

Fantastic cards, Joan!

Danita said...

JulieA said...

Oh man, I LOVE that bear! And the scene that you put him in is perfect. I love the wheel that you chose. The Easter card is very cute too. I love the basket.

Kittie said...

Joan, what wonderful coloring on your basket of eggs. I just wrote on Candy's card that I can't believe how you guys can color such small objects with those Copic tips. This is beautiful.

I absolutely adore that hiking bear with the ear buds hooked into his Ipod. It looks like my husband. He's 6'4" and weighs in at 290 or so and could be a twin to the bear.

Kittie said...

Oh, darn! I just went back up to click on the stamp company that made that bear stamp and there is none. Shoot. I was going to have to buy it if there was.

Dawn Easton said...

Oh my gosh Joan! Love the fun layout and cute images in your first card....adorable!!
Your second card is awesome...that bear is awesome! Love the scene you created!!!
