Belli Challenge #74 - Fall or Halloween theme
This week's Belli Challenge is to create something with a Fall or Halloween theme. We have a wonderful sponsor for this challenge - Creative Cuts and More. They provided the Belli Girls with all kinds of different die cuts, and the team had so much fun playing!
I chose this A2 Arch Window card and created a fun fall scene. I had just received the Autumn Trees set from Cornish Heritage Farms in the mail, and I just knew it would be perfect with this window card. That scarecrow and those leaves and pumpkins are just too much fun.
You could create all kinds of scenes with these window cards. I need to order some more of these cool A2 Arch Window cards so I can do a winter scene, a spring scene, and a summer scene! :-)
Here is the second project I created:
This is the Bell Box in an eggplant color. I stamped the vase of leaves and the sentiment onto Vanilla cardstock and then cut them out with my nestabilities. Then I colored the vase and leaves with copic markers before sponging around the edge. On the sides of the Bell Box, I stamped some leaves with Vintage Cream pigment ink and applied various colors of chalk to mimic the leaves I just colored with the copic markers.
The box was so easy to put together. It comes pre-scored, so all I had to do was fold and apply some Killer Tacky Tape to the ends. This makes it so easy - no measuring, no cutting, no scoring. That gives me more time for the fun part of stamping and coloring! :-)
Don't forget to check out what the other Belli Girls have created for this week. There are so many great projects - you have GOT to see the coffin that Deb Daniels created! Go to the Belli Blog to view all the great eye candy this week. While you're there, check out the prize that a lucky winner will get from our sponsor, Creative Cuts and More.
