Belli Challenge #85 - butterflies and dragonflies

Welcome to this week's Belli Challenge! This week's Belli Challenge is to make a project with BUTTERFLIES OR DRAGONFLIES to celebrate the coming of SPRING!

We want to THANK YOU for playing! We are so INSPIRED by all of your creations!

What is the Belli Challenge you ask? Each week, we try to give you a challenge that will use things we have lying around your stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, We tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter!

Here is what you need to do...
1. Anyone Can Play! Spread the Word! :)
2. Make a completed project/card with anything with a Butterfly or Dragonfly on it... Grab something you have had laying around for ages! It could be a punch, a charm, paper - just Grab it and create!
3. Share the link here in the comments linking to Mr. Linky -
CBC85. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC85 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!

We have a few CHANGES, starting next week! We will have an opportunity for our Guest Designer to SHINE using the SAME Challenge!! We have felt our Guest Designers tend to get lost in the long post. In addition to this, we will also share a few more projects from our Design Team or our Sponsor's Design Team. Be sure to come on back next Wednesday for more inspirational ideas.

This week, we are excited to introduce you to our SPONSOR - QKR STAMPEDE! They also have two other stamp businesses, Eureka Stamps and Biblical Impressions.

When you participate in the Belli Challenge and link us up this challenge period, you will have a chance to win $30 (US currency) of product, your choice! QKR Stampede will even cover the shipping to you!

A little about QKR STAMPEDE...

We have several rubber stamp lines featuring over 10,000 designs. Our website currently shows the most popular of those designs featuring artists from all over the world. We have been offering our own unique stamps and supplies to the craft industry for over 15 years and have loved every minute of it! All our rubber stamps are unmounted, natural red rubber.

THIS WEEKS BELLE OF THE BELLI is KATHERINE! CONGRATULATIONS! You can grab the Belle of the Belli Blinkie and post on your blog and contact me at with your mailing address and I will contact Korin from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to receive your gift certificate code from her store! A BIG THANK YOU to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps for sponsoring the Belli Challenge!

Now, you may recognize this talented friend of ours... We are thrilled to be introducing Jessica Stockmeyer again!

Hello everyone. My name is Jessica, and I am so honored to be a guest designer this week for the Creative Belli Challenge Blog. I live in Buffalo, NY with my husband of 8 ½ years and 3 daughters. I am currently a stay-at-home mom. I actually began stamping when I was in middle school. It looked like a fun thing to do. At that time, there was a LCS that had a stamping club I would go to. I of course was the youngest one in the room, but the older women were so nice to me, and taught me some tricks of the trade. Well, during college I put the stamping on the back burner. About 3 years ago, while pregnant with my 3rd child I went to a SU party, and instantly became hooked again. Over the last 3 years I have made significant progress in my “stamping skills”. I even started a blog this past year, which I am a bit of a blog-addict now. I love playing along with challenges on various blogs. Other than stamping, I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, surfing the net, and volunteering at my daughters’ school.
