Oh yes - we do have new stamps to share, PLUS we also have a mega Blog Candy collection up for grabs tonight. Think I had better start with the Blog Candy - and this is it.........
So here we have a VERY Cool £150 + worth of goodies, including ALL the new Alice Palace stamp designs, lots of other of our most popular stamp designs, miniature books - both background and image, glossy, and matt A4 image sheets, die cuts, tags, some Tando goodies (including a heart, and a Christmas tree printer tray), a CI die, and a mask. WOW!
To be in with a chance of winning this little lot you will have to be a follower of this blog and a blogger yourself, then you will have to display the above candy image somewhere visible on your blog with a link back to this post, and link in to your lovely blog via the inlinkz tool at the top of the post. This will help to spread the blogging word for all of us, and also makes the post more fun for the viewers as they can go on a lovely blog hop - hopefully around the world! Do hope you can join us and give yourself the chance of winning. You have until the 10th of December to do your duties and then we will be randomly picking a lucky winner.
Now to get on with blogging the new stamps as promised.....
As those of you on the website mailing list will know (if you are not on this yet - you should sign up now - CI Home Page - for early release info - and SPECIAL OFFERS), we have a new designer on board, namely Alice of Alice Palace designs. Alice produces 'curious illustrations and words to make you smile', and they certainly make us smile - hope they have that effect on you too!?
Here are the black and white stamp designs, and they are so easy to use too:
LOVE 'EM!!! You will find them all on our website RIGHT HERE
And I have some inspiring projects to wet your appetite, and of course lots more to follow in further posts.
A few cards to start off by myself..
I used an assortment of background papers including our Shades of Summer, and The Seaside plus other bits and bobs, lots of tearing, some ribbons, staples and a wooden disc to make these.
Lots of the 'Team' have been busy too, and I'll start with just a few samples below:
Here are a couple of quirky and cute projects by Nefertiti - aren't they fabulous?!
Notice the lovely use of CI-367 (ferns and flowers) just behind those adorable crowned rabbits!
What an imagination!
Then a lovely card by Paula, who has got her wax pot out for the bunnies here - and how great they look!
Then Helen has got right into the swing of it all with the new Alice stamps and here are just a few of the images she has sent me so far ...
Think I will leave it there for now. Don't forget to link in for your chance to win the Mega Blog Candy above and check out our website for further news on today's special offer, and another look at all the new stamps plus our other lovely products at http://www.craftyindividuals.com/.
