TAGS AND OTHER ARTY STUFF, PLUS A PUZZLE FOR YOU ......

Hope you are all having a fun weekend - its been cold but quite pleasant here in the UK today, a pretty nice winter's day all in all!  I have some more projects to show you and then I want to give away some blog candy as promised - however you will have to work a little bit for it this time!!!

My first project is a very lacy tag of birds and birdcages made by myself - I'm not totally happy with this one, not sure why really, but Malcolm and Kay like it so here it is:


The stamps I used are all from CI-329, which is a mini plate that I really like using, and I have added lots of lace, ribbons, dangly bead trimmings, a bird cage charm, and an earring.

And whilst on the subject of tags I have one from Isabelle which is also predominantly blues (probably my favourite colour), and Isabelle has used CI-331 and some of our background papers here:


More projects from Isabelle in my next post.

Now I have two very colourful projects spotted on Helen's Blog using stamps CI-333 and CI-336 - great colour scheme and layouts:





And finally I have 3 lovely projects that have been waiting in the wings since before Christmas - a delightful hanging by Lynne , followed by a really sweet box by Ginger, and then a beautifully stamped card using stamp CI-319 (spooky!) by Joanne Wardle:





Thanks to all for sharing, and do check out the latest Craft Stamper available on the CI Website HERE for some great projects using our products, including one by Jean Franks Beck, who's BLOG has been on my favourites list for quite some time, so go visit her and enjoy!

Now we have reached the end for this evening I am going to set you a little puzzle.  We have FOUR - yes FOUR! - sets of BLOG CANDY available to win starting tonight.  These are the sets below, and we might just add a brand new stamp (not yet released) to each set before they are sent out - these are so 'top secret' that I can't show you them here yet.


So if you would like one of the sets above, PLUS a BRAND NEW STAMP as well, then you will have to tell us the CI number of the stamp that this little section belongs to.  You might find the stamp in the Individuals Collection or in the Crafty Elements section.


When you think you know the answer please email it to us at info@craftyindividuals.co.uk, and include your name and address (so that we can send you your prize), and we will pick out 4 correct answers at random to win these great packs of goodies.  You have until next Wednesday evening (18th January) to send in your answer.

Good Luck!
