Happy Hump Day Everyone!!  I hope everyone is warm and safe!!  We had 8-10- inches of snow yesterday and blizzard conditions and today it looks like wintery mix all day!  Yuck.  So beautiful to look out at but we are indeed stuck indoors...including my dear husband who can not even get into work.

Today I would like to share 2 creations for 3 different challenges and teams.

Being a Wednesday...it is time for a new Creative Belli, Your Next Stamp, and Whiff of Joy Challenge creation!!

The first creation is made to meet both the Creative Belli and Whiff Of Joy Challenge.  The challenge at Creative Belli was "Jewels"- use anything used for jewelry (pearls, beads, charms, rhinestones, etc.)  The challenge at Whiff of Joy is "Love".  This is the creation I came up with incorporating both challenges:



Some of you may remember the heart box I made which was claimed by my youngest daughter...well I had to make another for my oldest daughter as well...this is what I came up with. It is my own design and does not come from a template.  I used the adorable Whiff of Joy Willow kneeling up stamp and the sentiment from Whiff of Joy Blooming Spring Store kit.  The designer paper is from My Minds Eye Surfin Basic Grey Capella (for the paper pieced outfit) and DCWV.

The heart shape is cut out with a Spellbinders heart nestabilities die.  The bow is May Arts Ivory Silk.  the flowers are from ZVA Creative (small roses) and Wild Orchids.  The wisps of beads coming up from the flowers are silver beads glued on stiff fishing string. The ferns and butterfly punches used are Martha Stewart. The hearts are all framed with a blue glitter paper from K&Co.  It is very stiff card stock and heavy!!

For more inspiration for the Whiff of Joy Challenge with the "LOVE" theme, please visit my dt sisters:
Anne Chelsea,  Gio, Jane, KathrinKylie, Louise, Manuela.  Michele

If you should join us for the Creative Belli Challenge, please leave a direct link here. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My next creation is for the Your Next Stamp (YNS) challenge, Maureen is challenging us to use pleats or ruffles on our creation.

For my creation, I used the adorable, YNS image, Birthday Surprise Fhiona.  I colored her with copics.


The brown velvet ribbon is pleated.  The dp is from K & Co (bottom layer) and DCWV Girl Nursery pack.
The hearts are punched with a SU heart punch. The border is Martha Stewart Shells border punch. Inside the holes of the punched border are pearls. The background behind the image is embossed with a Provocraft spots folder.

For more inspiration for the YNS challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
  Karen, Crystal , Kerri Sylvia, Simonne, Beth, Maureen, Jenny,
If you join the challenge please leave a direct link to Mr. Linky here. If you upload your creation to Paper craft planet or Splitcoast Stampers, please use the keyword YNSC35.
