Sweet Inspiration from Stacie

This wonderful Softie Socks Cupcake is from Stacie.
Isn't this a great gift idea and a wonderful paper project without a stamp to be seen.

I just had to share this.  Kaye, was on our Design Team last year shared this and another two desks on her blog.  I was just amazed at all the details and thought this would certainly inspire a lot of our followers too.  Kaye found the tutorial to the desk here.
Be sure to pop over to Kaye's blog to see the other two desks.

You can find our current challenge #7 - Anything Goes here.
As I type this we have a record number 105 entries.  
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to leave a comment too...it is so nice to hear from you.

100 Followers and one lucky winner

We have made 100 followers thanks to everyone for joining up and following our monthly challenges since the start in July 2011.  The Design Team of Unstampabelles have been secretly watching the followers total creep up to 100.  We decided to put together a small prize to celebrate the occasion and send off to the lucky 100th follower......who happens to Cheryl for Cheryl's Creative Art.

Welcome to Unstampabelles Cheryl.....we hope to see many creations from you.  Here are photos of your prizes which will be jetsetting their way to you soon.

Unstampabelles Halfway Inspiration

  Above we have this wonderful sporty card from JanR.
Who has used cardstock, stickers and some paper doll-type punch outs.

Morning everyone....the Design Team have been busy coming up with more papercraft ideas without the use of one single stamp.  We hope this will inspire you all.  
All the members of the Design Team are so excited to see so many entries in our current Challenge #7 - Anything Goes.  There are so many talented people out there and it is a pleasure to visit your blogs and see what you can do with a simple piece of paper.  So keep those entries coming we currently have 82 entries it would be so exciting to reach 100.  Remember you can enter up to three times.

Now on to the rest of our Design Team creations.

This wonderful gift box is from Susan.  Who was very clever and used a Darrel Lea chocolate box she received as a template.  Susan has also made her own rose with die cut leaves.  The label was punched with an SU punch and mounted on some red card, then trimmed, a rub-on coloured up with a Copic pen. It takes several chocolates such as Fererro Rocher.  Apparently the DP is Kaiser and the rose is made with left overs after. There is a Kaiser pearl in the rose as well.

This card is from Beth and is a Pergamano Card. very apt for the current Cricket season (It's summer here in Australia)

Monica has created this beautiful purple card.  Isn't that such a clever way to use a die by weaving a mauve silk cord through a Spellbinder  nestie. Then attaching one of her home-made flowers. The "create a border punch" is from MS. Also used are DP which is unknown and feathers and ribbon. The crystal is from Prima.

This altered Address book is from Stacie.
The Design Paper she has used is just stunning and such a wonderful flower it fits the DP perfectly.

This is from me Merry.  I have created this card for my wonderful sister who has a birthday next Tuesday.  I found a tutorial for this pop up card at QBees Quest I have also cased the front of her card as I thought it was a perfect finish to the card.  I have used Stampin Up papers and cardstock.  The candles I have coloured with my Copic pens.  Added some ribbon to the front and the tag I cut out myself and added the gold rub on sentiment.

Challenge closes 3rd February

Reminder - First Rule for Unstampabelles is No Stamps

Hi everyone, I just have to remind everyone of our first and main rule of Unstampabelles.

No entries are to include stamps (rubber or digital) in their creation.

I realise this is an Anything Goes challenge but the rules still apply.

Thanks so much for your understanding and we are enjoying seeing all the wonderful paper constructions.

It is a pleasure to see how you can manipulate your images or paper.

Example the amazing punched art and quilling of Dr Sonia entry No 18.

The lovely stitching and beading of Fayerose entry No. 7

Or this fun shaped card by Loz entry No 3.

Fabulous Decoupage/3D Paper Tole like this by Kate entry No. 12 we would love to see too.

So dig out all your papers, stickers, rub-ons, scissors, punches, embossing and cutting machines and create some magical paper art.
