Double Challenge Wednesday!!!

Hello Friends:

Today I have two challenges to bring to you. The first challenge is the Truly Scrumptious Challenge #6. Challenge #6 is a sketch challenge with an added twist. The twist this week is to make your card Good Enough to Eat!!! We want something that is Scrump-dilly-ious!!! The sponsor for Challenge #6 is The Cutting Cafe. Go check out that site, there are awesome digi-stamps and templates available. Great site to shop!!! The Design Team was lucky enough to receive the complete set of All About Cupcakes!! How fun it was to play with this set!!! The winner of this challenge will receive 3 sets of digi-stamps of their choice. You must follow the sketch AND use the added twist to be in the running for the prize!!! So here is the sketch to follow this week:

and here is my take on this challenge:

I used Basic Greys Bittersweet papers collection to pair with All About Cupcakes.

So lets see what you can do. Dont forget to check out the Truly Scrumptious challenge site to see the rest of the Design Teams awesome inspiration they have created for you!!! Then get started on your creation. Link up your creation with Mr Linky. You could be the lucky winner of 3 sets of Digi-stamps from the Cutting Cafe!!!

Now on to the second challenge I have for you today!!! That would be The Creative Belli Challenge!!! The Creative Belli Challenge has now changed its posting schedule. We will now be posting challenges every other Wednesday. Just like the Truly Scruptious Challenge. And LUCKY for me, they fall on the same days.

Here is my card for this challenge:

This weeks Creative Belli Challenge is to use Jumbo Eyelets and/or Jumbo Brads. I used both on my card, but you cant really see the jumbo eyelets due to the ribbon I threaded thru them. The white ribbon on the right is threaded thru 2 jumbo eyelets. The big world stamp used as the background is also embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder Diamonds in the Rough. I have had this stamp for a while now and havent really used it. I had this card in my head for a while, but no time to put it to paper. It didnt really turn out like I saw it in my brain, but I had fun with it. On the left hand side, I used a JUMBO SU Star Brad on the bottom and in the center of the flower, I used a SU Filagree brad.

So head on over to the Creative Belli Blog and check out the rest of the Design Teams creative inspiration. We have some great ideas to spark your creativity. We too have the Mr Linky to link your creation up to our site so we can find you. If you post to Splitcoaststampers or Creative Paper Planet, please use the keyword CBC64.

Happy Stamping and make it a great day!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog!!! Please leave a comment so I know you have been here!!!

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Tin Can Mail (World Map), Stampin Up (sentiment)
Cardstock: SU Chocolate Chip, SU Brocade Blue, SU Whisper White

P.S. Have you ever completed your card and you end up liking the result but then looking at the pictures you realize what you dont like or would rather change??? Well I did this with this card. The words are just too stark and needs something added to them, but I didnt have time to fix them. So stay turned for the updated version. I can either IMPROVE this card or ruin it lol. Time will tell.
