The spin for the Sweet Stop this week was to use only a sentiment as your focal point. I used a sentiment from one of the new TAC sets. (T3256 Savvy Sayings) This set has 12 different sentiments in it. They are all very cute and simple like the one above, and includes many different occasions. I also used hearts on this card, which is this weeks Creative Belli Challenge. I used some heart PP that I purchased a couple years back from the Target $1 spot. I also added some little pink heart brads that I have had for awhile too. I stamped the sentiment on pink CS, and sponged around it.
My 2nd project today is also for 2 different challenges. I used the Sketch from this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge, and put it on top of a mini pizza box which is this weeks Project Tuesday Challenge.
The PP is all from the same paper set, which I purchased for $.97 at my LCS. I used some blue textured CS for the square behind the scalloped circle. The sentiment is from the same TAC set I mentioned above. I stamped it on white CS, and used a stipple brush to add some extra color to the CS. I am going to use this box to put my SIL's b-day gift into.
Well that is all for now. Thanks for Looking.

I made this card using the Sweet Stop Sketch this week. I need a birthday card for a party one of my girls is going to on Monday. She requested I use the Princess Turtle set from Inky Antics (since she picked it out at a stamp show we went to). I stamped the image, colored it and cut it out. I then created a background for her using some cloud PP. I sponged a grassy hill onto the PP, and added some little flowers and butterflies from the same stamp set. I stamped the crown on gold CS and cut it out. I attached the turtle using foam tape for some 3-D look. I layered that onto a certainly celery CS base. I created a boarder for the center piece using some stamps from the same stamp set. Last, I added some paper flowers and stickles to the corners. Here is a close up.
My 2nd project today is the first batch of valentines for my DDs to pass out at school. I saw this idea on the TAC paper crafting community, and thought it would be perfect for Valentines. So easy too!
I used 3 or 4 different shades of red and pink for these. I cut and scored all 30 of them at once...mass producing can be oh so fun! I stamped a sentiment in the center (which is from one of the new TAC sets T3241 Bug of Fun), and then added the ladybugs (which are from a TAC hostess set). I used pink staples to attach the M&M's to the CS, and folded over the top flap and tucked it into the bottom flap. Very easy, and cute too.

This really was a fun project to do, now I just need to buy the earring hooks and get them attached. Thanks for looking!
I used one of the new TAC stamp sets coming out(TB3235 Hello for All Seasons ). This set is really cute. There are 9 different stamps you can use for the center of the "O", all different seasons. I used the cupcake since this is a b-day card for my mom. The PP is from the TAC set Tootle Loo. I also used my new I-top to make my own coordinating brad. I used marker to color the image, and added some stickles to the "sprinkles" on the cupcake. Well that is it for now. Thanks for stopping by.

I used pink CS for the base, and some PP that I got as a freebie from my LSS's booth at a stamp show this past summer. The letters are sticky cuts from SU. I used some glitter on the "L, V, & E", and I used microbeads on the heart/O. Very simple card, but I liked the way it turned out. Plus the added bonus, I used up some stuff I have laying around...which is the point of the Creative Belli Blog...use up supplies and stamps we already have.
My next project tonight is for two challenges. First, I used the colors from this weeks Color Dare Challenge (Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, and Bermuda Bay). Next, I used the challenge from The Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Blog (my LSS) which was to use THIS mug template from Clear and Simple Stamps. Here is what I came up with.
I used some PP I had purchased over the summer at a LCS. The colors were perfect! I used Bermuda bay CS for the handle, and the bottom (which you can't see) is Creamy caramel CS. I found some ribbon left over from some barrettes that I made that was just the right color for ruby red. I thought this would be cute to use at end of year teacher gifts this year....yes I think that far ahead. =) I will probably make a few more and either fill with a gift card for coffee/tea, or some tea packets like in the picture.
Well that is all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by.

The image is one of the new TAC stamps coming out soon (T3257 Bountiful Bears). The set is another adorable one. There are 4 different bears in this set as well as a few extra pieces. There is also a really nice sentiment set to go with the bear set. The PPs are all from TAC, and I used various colors of pink CS too. That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by!

I really enjoyed this sketch...it looked "complicated" at first, but was really easy to put together once I got going.
Thanks for stopping by.
