Belli Challenge #99


Today is Belli Challenge #99! I took a couple months off from the Belli Challenge to recharge my mojo, and this is my first Belli card since my little vacation.

Today's Belli challenge is all about OLD STAMPS. Yup, pull out all those stamps that have been collecting dust and ink them up. You can't play with those stamps you just ordered last week. We want to see those old stamps that you loved last year or the year before.

I pulled out an old Stampin Up set called "It's Your Birthday" and an old Lockhart Daisy Cupcake stamp to play with. I've had these for years, and I will always need birthday sentiments, so I will probably never get rid of this set.

The layout on this card is from the Sweet Stop's sketch challenge (SSS71) and I also used the Wisped Frames technique from Technique Junkies. Yeah, I've combined three challenges on this card. :-) The cupcake is stamped with brown Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. The fun papers are from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite collection. See those pretty flowers? Those are some cheap little flowers that I pulled off those plastic sprigs that I found at Walmart. You don't need expensive Prima flowers - just find the cheap flowers at Walmart and look for the sprigs that have the smaller blossoms on them.

Check out what the other Belli girls have created on the Belli Challenge blog, and then pull out your old stamps and play along with us this week. I'm looking forward to seeing what your favorite old stamps are!
