Wacky Wednesday and The Creative Belli Challenge

It's Wednesday and time for another Rubbernecker Wacky Wednesday!!

Bev is the hostess with the mostess today and her challenge is to *heat it up*. We are to use the heat gun to emboss, curl a ribbon, or what ever comes to mind. I embossed the silhouette image from Rubbernecker's new Fashion Icons #455 onto the Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste dp and cut it out with the Labels 4 Nestie along with the black matting.

Images from the same set were stamped on the background Fleuristes paper with Memento Rich Cocoa and the edges were sponged with Ranger Distress Peeled Paint ink so it would match the beautiful May Arts ribbon. The sentiment, also from the same set, was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto a scrap piece of light dp, cutout with the Label 4 Nestie, and the edges were sponged with Peeled Paint, Fried Brick , and Vintage Photo Ranger Distress inks.

The Grungeboard flourishes were sponges with Fried Brick and Vintage Photo Distress inks and attached with glue dots. Three pearls were the final detail.

Now it's your turn...drag out those heat guns, create something fabulous, go to the Rubbernecker blog, and leave your name with Mr. Linky with a link to your creation.

Please visit the other Rubbernecker Red Hot Mommas blogs for lots of creative inspiration and to see their take on Bev's challenge.

Creative Belli Challenge

This week, Chrissy's Creative Belli Challenge is to use jumbo eyelets or jumbo brads on your project.
I used another Rubbernecker stamp set for today's Belli card. The rose from the Wildflowers set #465 was paper pieced with scrap pieced of designer paper and the sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. They were cutout with Nesties and attached to layers of scrap dp with dimensionals. The big brad I decided to use was placed in the center of some layered primas and ribbon, pearls, and a scalloped border 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 CBC64 in the keywords section.
