Rule Amendment - Sentiments

We have made a slight change to the rules here at Unstampabelles.

Our biggest challenge has been sentiments.  When we first started we allowed them to be added and to be stamped but found that stamped sentiments were becoming a focal point.  Not something we wanted to encourage at Unstampabelles which is all about paper manipulation.  So then we changed the rules to no stamps at all rubber or digital.  However, we have been finding it hard to determine if a sentiment has been stamped or not.  This rule also has disqualified a lot of wonderful paper creations that happen to have one or two words on them.

So the rule has been changed to:

Sentiments - are restricted to the use of, at most, four (4) words only.  The sentiment is not to be the focal point of your creation.  We applaud the use of rub-on's, stickers, punched/diecut letters or handwriting.  Stamps may be used but not encouraged.

Here are some examples of sentiments we like to see:

Die cut, punched or electronic cutting machine.

Cut out letters from alphabet sheets or magazines.


Rub on.

A bit of bling.
