ADORABLE MAKES, AND A LITTLE BIT OF SPOOKINESS....

It was lovely to see how many of you enjoyed seeing Viola's work (my last post), and I do hope you had a good look around her blog - always inspirational!  Also I see Viola has since posted another beautiful make with a stamp of ours - albeit discontinued - but it certainly goes to show how versatile stamping is in mixed media works as well as simply in papercrafting on its own, and reminds me to keep getting out that vintage sewing machine, as some stitching on projects does look gorgeous.

I have a gather of makes to show you and will focus on several tonight that use our most recent issue of new rubber.  If you feel like getting in the Christmas spirit Daniele has made this lovely, lovely softly coloured tag card with the new Santa image from CI-396 ..



Makes me feel all warm and festive - now where's that glass of mulled wine?

Daniele has also made a pretty card with the Oriental Fan stamp CI-393...



And now I have a few items made using the new Elements plate CI-394 - No Guarantee without the Stamp.  I made a card (Stampendous embossing powder again involved in this) ...



Gio made a very pretty card, and the most adorable little suitcase with the same stamp, plus bits from the Oriental Fan stamp as well ...






How sweet is the little Shrink Plastic necklace fan?!  Love the top front of the suitcase where Gio has used our Butterfly Panel Mask and embossing paste to give the gorgeous raised effect on either side.  Which reminds me that we must make some more YouTube videos - as someone suggested that a video about the multi uses of Masks would be very interesting.

Lovely Sylvie has also made a card with CI-394 and CI-393 in stunning colours ..




Superb - thank you ladies!

To finish - a little bit of spookiness to assist with those sweet dreams this evening.  I love the freedom of creating for Halloween flavoured projects, and I used our latest Tando chipboard blank 'Layered Arch with Cobweb', plus CI-361 and Whitby Abbey CI-227  for this creepy make...


Night, night all!
