Challenge #9 UnstampaBelles - Easter

Challenge #9 for UnstampaBelles is up and running - boy of boy, where is the time going?

Theme is Easter with a bonus technique "extra folds"
This challenge closes Friday, 30th March 2012 and Winners announced Monday, 2nd April 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 March is Blue Edge Crafts - my go to shop for most of my craft supplies.

Now for my DT entry.

In the past, I haven't really done many Easter cards and must confess, I struggled with an idea of what to do.

I came across some colouring in pages and they had a wonderfully cute image that I thought I could incorporate into a cutting file.

Another clean and simple card for me.

Square white cardbase, layered with 6 x 6 scrapbook paper, highlighted with peel-off stickers.  Rabbit cut out using CraftROBO, layered and highlighted with chalks and kindyglitz.  Cardstock, scrapbook paper and stickers from Blue Edge Crafts.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Colour Create - yellow, grey, black & white
Cooking it up with Katie - 3 fave things (CraftROBO, KindyGlitz & Cuttlebug)

Please visit the UnstampaBelles blog  and see who won last month's challenge.

Each month there are some amazing entries and it really is getting more difficult for the DT to pick a favourite!

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-) 
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.


  1. Such a sweet card Cathy. That's a great idea for the cutting machnes because there are lots of free colouring pages out on the web.
