Creative Belli Challenge 101

WOW, what a milestone Creative Belli has accomplished.  I'm delighted to be a part of this great team!  Here is our challenge for this week:

(1)  Make a card using the sketch above and an embellishment with a number.  The number can be embellishment - metal, plastic, stamp, paper, tag, - the sky's the limit! Pull out those embellishments  you've been hoarding, that special designer paper that you bought last year and never used, or that ribbon that was just perfect for something and you forgot about it until today.
 
(2) Link back to the Belli Challenge in your post and provide a DIRECT LINK to your new posting using the  Mr. Linky found on Creative Belli Blog. Also, if you are posting to an online gallery, add CBC101 as a KEYWORD. 
Here is my card
The stamp is from Little Paper Shop, and the paper is from Cosmos Cricket and a freeby from Cardmaking and Papercraft.

Would you like some inspiration or help getting started?  Here you go ----
Thanks and have a happy stamping day!!

Repeat Impression Stamp of the Week- Play Time Cat

I have the sweetest kitty ever!  Her name is Purdy.  When she was a tiny baby kitten someone dumped her on a friend's doorstep.  She needed a lot of love and patience so we could get close enough to us to be petted.  She is now the one who rules this house.  She really is a sweet kitty.  This stamp reminds me of her.  The Stamp of the Week is called Play Time Cat.

I made little note cards and may give this set as a gift.  These are small note cards tied up with a brown bow.
For new ones, this is how Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week works.

1.  Go to the blog The House That Stamps Built and get the 50% off code for the week of September 27 thru October 3.
2.  When you order this stamp remember to receive your special discount please be sure to reference the discount code in the Special Instructions section of the online order form.

PLEASE NOTE: The discount WILL NOT appear when you place your order. Once your order is ready to be shipped WENDY WILL apply the discount and process your credit card at that time. She will also send you a follow-up email to let you know your final adjusted total.

Here are some of the designer who will give you some ideas on how to use this stamp.

LITTLE PAPER SHOP COLOR CHALLENGE 87

Please scroll down one post to see REPEAT IMPRESSIONS' STAMP OF THE WEEK.

Can you believe September is almost over?  Where did my summer go?  Today Little Paper Shop has a color challenge.  Why not show us what you can do with these colors?  Why not challenge a friend?  It's always fun to challenge my sister or some of my internet/blog friends.  We love talking about how we came up with our cards.

So, here are the colors - great fall colors!

Here is my card:
The set is called Jungle Fun.  I made a little enclosure to put a gift card from Toys R Us.  I made it for a friend -- her little girl has already had her party.  It was jungle themed -- mainly giraffes -- even the cake.  So this will be put in the mail for her.

The other designers have some great inspiration for you.  Check them out, then link your card to the little blue froggy on the blog.  A random winner will receive Katie Skating - check this cutie out!

As a quick note one of our Design Team Members Sparkle is posting her last card -- would you give her a little extra sweet feedback.  We are going to miss her!

Have a happy stamping day.

Stamp TV September 25 Blog Hop

I'm sure you came from  Jen Charboneau's page.  Didn't she have a beautiful card?  I'm sure that you know that for this hop Caroline gave us this image as inspiration.  They are wedding cupcakes.  Aren't they stunning?
So here is my card
It is about as frilly and girly as I could make it.  I used Nina Brackets Lovely Labels -- some of them coordinate with Spellbinders Nestabilities (love it!) and the sentiment is from Nina's Elegant Post.  Because I got to meet her at CHA this year, her stamps sets are even more enjoyable!  The cardstock is Gina K Designs Chocolate Kiss, White and Bubblegum pink.  I've colored the flowers with Copic markers.

Now you can go to  Karen Knegten's blog and see her card.  You will love it!  After you completed the last blog, make sure you stop by Stamp TV and leave a comment there.  Thank you for stopping here, I so appreciate your comments ---- have a HAPPY stamping day!!

LITTLE PAPER SHOP 84 CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE

Good morning! Today's challenge for the week was to do a CAS card.  So - - - mine started out simple, but I goofed on stamping the image and had to cover it up, then it got more and more complicated.  I finished it and will show it as my last card.
 This one uses My Mind's Eye paper and the sentiment is from Everyday.

Here is the second one  ---- and simple can't get any more simple than this!  I found a piece of Webster paper that had an oval printed on top of a pattern paper -- so all I did was stamp the sentiment from Everyday in the oval frame and put that on some card stock and it was ready!  This one took all of less than 5 minutes!


Here is the goofed up one.  This one also uses Webster paper - I stamped the Lucy Baking, added the butterfly and sentiment from Everyday(on top of my goofed up one). Then had to add the corners.  Someone once told me that goofs in card making can always be covered up with something!
Check out what the other designers have made then make yours and link it to the blue froggy on the Little Paper Shop Blog.  A random entry will win the Ice Cream Tyson!

Thank you and have a happy stamping day!
