Happy New Year

Good Morning and a Happy New Year to you.

 I am starting my blog for 2019 with our first challenge of the year at CD Sunday.

A New Year means new beginnings and changes. At CD Sunday things are changing with our challenges. All challenges will be 'Anything Goes' and numbered. We have decided to use this theme throughout the year as it proved to be the most popular last year. There are other changes too. There will only be prizes awarded for special challenges throughout the year. However each challenge will have a different host and they will choose their Top Three as usual. Pop over to the challenge blog to read all about theses changes. (link in sidebar)

 Our lovely leader Carol is hosting this first challenge of the year.

Here is my inspiration for you with #1 'Any thing Goes' for 2019.

It's one of the cards I made to send to a friend at Christmas. The CD I used was from Joanne Sheen 'Victorian Christmas' There are some lovely nostalgic images on this CD and well worth investing in.

Don't forget our challenges are now always 'Anything Goes' and you must use a CD when creating your project. It doesn't have to be a card it can be anything as long as you've used a CD to help you create it.

 Please join in with us and if you haven't a Blog you can email us at or join in  on Facebook.

I hope you have had a wonderful festive season and are ready for the new challenges in 2019.

I look forward to visiting your blogs and thank you for any comments made which are much appreciated and always read.

Happy Crafting!

'Christmas..... Old or New'

Good afternoon. Sorry I'm a tad late with my post for the new challenge at CD Sunday. Thank you everyone who entered Margaret's 'Blue and White'challenge last time. The winner will be announced next Sunday. The challenge this time is last for the year and has been chosen by Jocelyn. We start again January 6th.

Here's my inspiration for you this time.

I used a lovely CD for the background paper from Ooh La La with artwork by Paula Oakley. The topper, which I thought looked very 1920's, is from Hunky Dory. The greeting was in the same pack. I added a diecut gold holly spray to one corner and sprinkled some old star peel offs randomly on the background paper.

This card was so easy to make . So if you need a last minute we always do...Simply get out a CD print off some background paper and add a suitable topper and greeting  to it and VOILA!

It just remains for me to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful, healthy 2019.

Keep Crafting!!!

Unstampabelles last challenge for 2018!!

Can you believe another year is almost over.....where do the days, weeks, months, years go!! This is our last challenge for 2018 at Unstampabelles. Of course it's something appropriate for this time of the year.

We would like you to show us a Christmas themed item related to your country. The optional Twist is to explain the theme in your blog. Don't forget the important stamps allowed.....we are UNstampabelles!

                                                     As usual there is a prize on offer.

                                                        Here is my inspiration for you.

Carol singing around the tree in local villages.

Where I live in the UK there are many small villages with a beautiful Christmas at the heart of the village. Every year they have carol singing around the tree in each village, which is usually led by the local church choir. Ours happens this Tuesday evening and I am very much looking for ward to it. This will be my first Christmas back home in the UK so you can imagine the joy I'm feeling.

The card was created using only Hunky Dory products. 

I hope you'll be inspired to join us and show us your Christmas traditions in your creations. I look forward very much to visiting your blogs and reading about your traditions.

Happy Crafting!

I have returned and a new challenge at CD Sunday

......Sorry for the delay in returning. Things took a little longer than anticipated to arrive etc. I am now living in the UK in a pretty little village in the North East of England. I am enjoying being surrounded by my lovely family but having to adjust to living indoors. In Cyprus much of your time is spent in the outdoors so life here is a little different.

On with our new challenge at CD Sunday. The theme is Blue and White and you must use a CD in the making.

Here is my inspiration for you.

As my supplies were limited and I had no CDs to hand when I moved my design team colleagues kindly helped out by supplying some background papers for me. The two CDs used were from Making Cards Magazine...Victorian Christmas and La Pashe Christmas story. Thank you Jane and Margaret.

I started with A4 card folded. Then matted and layered two background papers.  I hand drew on white card the 'snow drift' and cut it out. The trees were made using  off cuts from the same background papers. I drew the triangles for the trees on to card then added strips of the papers and cut them out. I slipped these behind the 'snow drift' which had been raised with 3D tape.

The greeting strip along the bottom is Hunky Dory and the strip of gems is from my small stash that I had.

So a quick and easy card made with a limited supply of materials. It can be done!!

Now it's your turn. Pop over to CD Sunday to see what the rest of the team have created and join us. We would love to see your creations.

Happy Crafting!!

'Fancy Frame or Border'

It's a new month and time for a new challenge at Unstampabelles. This time we are looking for a Fancy Frame or Border. The twist is 'How Edgy!' As usual there's a yummy prize on offer courtesy of our lovely leader Susan.
Now who wouldn't like to win this amazing prize. It's a set of dies and an embossing folder plus a Craft Magazine!! Wow!!
                                                         Here is my inspiration for you.

You may remember I made a similar card a while ago when I was playing around for a multi media challenge with the Belles. I found a piece of left over card from then which I had inked and spritzed then didn't use. So I embossed it and made it the star of the show. A friend had lent me a selection of border dies so I played with these and framed the embossed card with cream. I added it to some leafy Green card stock from a Lidls pack. Then cut out the Happy Birthday sentiment die in the matching cream card. Finally I added some liquid pearl dots randomly over the embossed card and around the frame.

I hope you'll be inspired to join us. For more inspiration go to the Unstampabelles challenge blog (link in sidebar) to see what the rest of the design have created. There are some very 'edgy' frames!

Don't forget this UNstampabelles, no so stamps please, including digis!. This is a challenge for anything crafty so it doesn't have to be a greeting card.

Have Fun!!
