UnstampaBelles Challenge #7 - January - Anything Goes

Challenge #7 for UnstampaBelles is up and running.

Anything Goes for this month - but still no stamps!

This challenge closes Friday, 3rd February 2012 and Winners announced Monday, 6th February 2012 - Remember we are working on Aussie Time.

Here is a quick recap of the rules:

No Stamps! This means no rubber stamps, no digital stamps, clipart or line art which includes pre-coloured versions. Inclusive of sentiment stamps.

You may think this will be difficult, but here are some suggestions on what you CAN use:
3D papertole, decoupage, quilling, iris folding, stitching, beading, origami, fancy folds, cutting machines (e.g. craftrobo/silhouette, cricut), paper punches, canvases, stickers, rub-ons, parchment, etc.......

Due to graphic technology any entry with a graphic image will be subject to the Design Teams' discretion and we will contact you if we feel the entry does not meet the ethos of our challenge blog.

A technique challenge will be included as a bonus.  This will not be a requirement for an entry but if you do use the nominated technique in your project, it will count as two entries for you.

Our sponsor for January is Merry.

Purple patterned washi tape, 15 origami papers and patterns, 3 Copic Pens YR07, Y06, R27, a roll of Sellotape - double sided tape 12mm x 10m.

Now for my DT entry.

I have owned a CraftROBO/Silhouette for a few years now, and have recently been having some fun designing my own cutting files.  Here are some cards cut from the same files but using different cardstock and colours.

Regular visitors may remember I used the 50 file to make a personalised 50th birthday card for a friend

Most of the cardstock and DP used for these cards came from Blue Edge Crafts - with the exception of the holographic card which was from a local Newsagent.

My GSD/Studio cutting files are available from Crafts-U-Print

Please visit the UnstampaBelles blog and see who won last month's challenge.
It is getting harder for the DT to pick a favourite each month!

And, be sure to pop on over and say hello to our new Design Team Members - Sharon, JanR, Beth & Monica (see links on right sidebar).
