BRAND NEW STAMPS RELEASED NOW...

If you are on our mailing list for the CI Newsletter you will now know that we have released 5 brand new stamp designs this week.  If you are not on the Newsletter list please sign up for it on our website Home Page for all the latest news and extra special offers.

I will give you a quick overview here as well, to show you the new designs, which are as follows:



You will find the first three very pretty Individual Collage stamps all Here - CI-387, CI-388, and CI-389, 'Love is all Around', 'Tiptoe through the Tulips', and 'Tea at Three'.  Then there are two new mini Elements Plates:



CI-390 and CI-391, 'On Safari' and 'Teatime Delights', which you will find in the Elements section Here

We managed to get some made into rubber ready for the Craft Barn Extravaganza last weekend and that was my first chance to have a play with them there.  Will get the samples photographed and blogged soon.  However in the meantime I can show you a few images as Nefertiti has sent some projects over to me tonight - and very lovely they are too!





Nice colours and distressed papers!  Sylvie has also incorporated two of our latest dies beautifully in the above - Floral Branch and Elegant Swirl

A lady we met up with at the Extravaganza in Surrey - Rukhshana aka 'Scrapmate' has had a bit of a collaboration with a quick sample I made there and gave to her, and turned it into a pretty card - see below:


Thanks for sending that image over to me Rukhshana!

As well as the new stamps we have also recently added lots of items to the 'Must Haves' section on the site, including several different handmade flower packs - gorgeous!

Sorry bad picture! I just pulled it off the website, so it is low resolution - but it gives you an idea anyway.  They look much better on the site. You will also find new laces and ribbons on there, plus a really useful slim acrylic block for using with your CI rubber - one size fits all!

Now a little update on the current Challenge - great title by Nefertiti - SEA, SUN AND BEACH.  No entries as yet but I just know you are beavering away madly out there!!  But I do have a couple more 'Team' inspirational projects to share, first one from Carol aka Ginger.  I love this and funnily enough I was going to using the Beach Babe on one of these fabby chip boats from Tando myself - thought it would make a great class.  Will show you mine when I get it done.  Perfect stamp to use with those adorable little boats!


Great driftwood stand here, plus cool crackle and our Lighthouse stamp featuring inside the boat. Carol has some more seasidey items in the most recent Craft Stamper issue too (which will be on our site to purchase soon).

Isabelle Norris sent over some pretties recently and she has used the same parasol lady on a card, so I think it fits in very well with the new Challenge theme ..



A page from our Seaside background book looks lush here too, and I love the seaside words Isa has found to compliment the image!

That's all for tonight, thanks for clicking,

ps  Monica asked on a post recently about where to buy our stamps in the USA.  A few shops do sell them there, but you are also welcome to buy from our website, and we do post all over the world.  We might have more news on the USA front soon!

Loving the new stamps especially the elephants and giraffe. Another set of wonderful samples. Annette x

Jean Hardy said...

Thanks Annette - think the elephants and giraffe might be a popular one - we weren't totally sure they would be a hit - but it seems they will be! x

The giraffe is unusual so that caught my eye and the teacups. I love the Tando boat. Such a lovely piece perfectly decorated. You do post all over the world and I appreciate that and the excellent service you provide. Hope to join the challenge soon....

That's my favourite stamp from the latest release to Netty.x

What gorgeous artwork! How lovely to see Rukhshana on here too. I love the new stamps and the birds are my favourites but my friends who've been passing through the house this week like the animals best so I think they will be a hit!
