Unstampabelles

Good Evening everyone to all in the UK and Good Morning to Tasmania. Our new challenge at Unstampabelles begins today and this time it's 'Good News'. The optional twist is to make your own background. As usual there is a gift voucher prize for the winner.

Here is my inspiration for you.



I began with A4 white card stock and folded it landscape orientation. I used a corner punch to round the corners.

I then created the background using embossed card and corner die cuts. I then added gem stones.

I used a template to cut two large hearts.....one blue and one white. (This was a commissioned card and the customer asked for it to include blue, hence my colour palette.) Then I die cut the Love heart and smaller blue heart. The sparkly number 60 was then added to the blue heart.

I generated the two Greetings using the CD Card Making Factory DeLuxe.

I hope you'll be joining us this month. Please click on the link Unstampabelles in the sidebar to see what the rest of the team have created.

Take care out there!!!!

Happy Crafting!

CD Sunday Plus

Good Morning everyone. Well it's great to back with you all again. I've been having P.C. problems . So I have not been able to access my blog. 

It's time for our next challenge at CD Sunday Plus and as usual it's 'Anything Goes' as long as you use something from a CD, USB or Download in your creation. It could be a card, altered book, boxes, ATC, scrap book  anything as long as you use something, however small, from the aforementioned.

Here is my inspiration for you.


I began with a scalloped square card. The background and image are from Hunky Dory. The CD element is the Greeting which is from a lovely CD by Joanne Sheen 'Holly Hill Pond'. This is a great go to CD and I use it quite often.

I hope you can join us and I look forward to visiting your blogs soon.

Take care out there.

Happy Crafting!!

#35 CD Sunday Plus

Good Morning everyone. It's time for our next challenge at CD Sunday Plus. I am hosting this time and I'm looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations. As usual it's Anything Goes as long as you use something from a CD, USB or Download in your creation. It could be a card, altered book, boxes, ATC, scrap book  anything as long as you use something, however small, from the aforementioned.

Here is my inspiration for you.


I started with A4 white card stock and folded landscape orientation. I added some checkered background paper from my stash. The framing was something I found in my box of die cuts from eons ago. I am not sure which dies they are from. I cut both diagonally and placed one in each corner. The image is from Crafts You Print  with Artwork by Tracey Hutchins. The tags were included so I cut them out and placed at the bottom right corner. The blank one will be used to add a name later when I decide who it's going to.

I hope you be inspired to join us. Thank you for visiting and if you leave a comment thank you.....all comments are raed and appreciated.

Stay safe everyone and don't forget if you do venture outside to stay a safe distance from others. Take care.

Have a crafty week!!

#34 CD Sunday Plus

Good Morning everyone hope you are all fit and well on this lovely Sunday morning.

It's time for our next challenge at CD Sunday Plus and this time our hostess with the mostest is our lovely leader Carol. As usual the theme is 'Anything Goes' as long as you use something from a CD, USB or download and tell us your source.

I have made a stepper card. The download is from Crafts You Print. The design is by Kim Blundred and the template for the stepper is by Carol Dunn. The Artwork is Nitwit Collection.

HAPPY EASTER



Good Morning and Happy Easter to you all on this strange Easter Morning!! I hope you are all well and remember to social distance. This is not easy I know especially when it's a Bank Holiday but its got to be done to stay safe. 'Strange but True' as the Bard , our friend Will Shakespeare, once said!

We are once again challenging you at CD Sunday Plus with Anything Goes. As long as you use something from a CD, USB or  Download.in your project. Jocelyn is our host this time around.

                                                          Here is my inspiration for you.


This pretty Easter card, which sadly didn't get posted, was created using an image from Crafts You Print. The Designer is Di Simpson.The pale green background was from my stash. I created and printed the greeting from the CD Greeting Card factory Deluxe. I will put this card safely away and hopefully I will be able to send it next year.

Have a lovely Easter and if you are visiting and leave a comment Thank You. All your comments are read and appreciated.

#99 Unstampabelles

Good Day!! Well I hope you are managing to stay sane during this time of uncertainty in the world!!! I have been very busy in my craft room trying to get ahead of the Christmas rush !!

Our April challenge at Unstampabelles is all about creativity.....something we crafters thrive on!!
The challenge is called 'Creative Souls and Being Creative'  So its all about Art....creating it, looking atit, admiring it etc etc.
The optional twist is ....To mane a creative person you admire and CAS a piece of their work, without using stamps of course!

I have long been an admirer of the Art Dec o Movement. So with this in mind I set about creating a piece for you.

The Art Deco Movement reached it's height in the 1920s, '30s and '40s.The key features are bold designs, clear lines , vibrant colours and patterns. The style brings glamour, luxury and order with symmetrical designs in exuberant shapes.

Here is my inspiration for you.


I told you I'd been working on Christmas!!! The image as you can see is set in a typical Art Deco geometrical shape. I am sure you'll agree that is also says luxury and glamour. All Art Deco boxes are ticked with this image from Hunky Dory. I placed the image on a white scalloped pre scored card from my stash. The background is also from Hunky Dory and the image placed below those glamorous chandeliers I hope show some  symmetry....think I might be a wee bit out on that one if you look closely!!

I hope you will be inspired to join us. Pop over to Unstampabelles and see which creative soul has inspired the rest of the team. There's always a random prize draw too. But don't forget NO stamps please.....we are UNSTAMPabelles!!

Take Care and Stay Safe. Don't go out unless you really have to and stay a safe distance from others. Protecting yourself and our vital front line services.

Happy crafting!!
