Belli Challenge #30 - baubles and bling
Isn't this the sweetest image???? This week's Belli Challenge is a very special one. You are seeing a sneak peak of a very special stamp set that will be available beginning September 1. Our very own CHRISSY is designing stamps for Sweet N Sassy Stamps!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is such awesome news, and I am SO excited for Chrissy!!! Let me tell you, I have seen what is in the works and you will LOVE everything she has done. This girl can DRAW!
Chrissy will have two stamp sets releasing on September 1 - Child of God (which includes the images you see in this card) and Autumn Blessings. I can't wait to get my hands on these. No, I don't have this stamp set. Chrissy sent me some stamped images with her very first stamp set that she got from the stamp makers. I want these stamps in my hands NOW! :-)
Be sure to check out Sweet N Sassy Stamps this week. They are doing a big blowout party for all the new releases coming up on September 1. You don't want to miss the big party - Korin will pick a winner who will receive ALL seven of the new stamps being released. WOW! (Anybody know how I can bribe Korin to pick me for the winner???)
Okay, back to the Belli Challenge. This week we are doing images from Chrissy's Child of God stamp set as well as baubles and bling. I chose to add some Pearl Dew Drops to the centers of my prima flowers for my baubles. The blue flower you see is actually hand dyed. It was a much paler blue color originally, so I pulled out my Brocade Blue reinker and my aquapainter and dyed the flower so it matched the cardstock.
We realize that you don't have these images (yet....), so your challenge is to create a card or project with baubles and/or bling. You can add dew drops, rhinestones, glitter, pearls, anything! Be creative! If you post your card to SCS, please add CBC30 to the keywords.
