ITS TREE FEST WEEK AND ITS SCENIC STAMPING SATURDAY AS WELL....

We are having a 'Tree Fest Week' over at www.craftyindividuals.co.uk, which means our tree themed rubber stamps are on special offer for the week, and if you are on our mailing list you will have recently received a newsletter with details of a new tree stamp release and with a tree make tutorial combined all in one, in celebration of 'Tree Fest Week'!!

This is the brand new stamp release, CI-429 'Trees Galore':

And this is one way of using it, where I combined canvas, acrylic paint, and stamped tissue paper, with the addition of net and nylon fabric here and there, to make this piccie:



I also think this piccie would nicely fit in with the current Challenge month theme of 'Scenic Stamping' - check it out HERE, and I will post below some more similar makes piccies, sporting some more CI tree stamps, cos as you know I get a bit obsessed with some techniques and just can't stop playing!!

Here are a few others:

......




I had great fun making them, hope you likey and fancy making one too?!

In addition to the new stamp set we have also added a few related 'Must Haves' to help you out:

Gildenglitz gilding flakes for creating those metallic suns and moons -



and Cotton Canvas in 1/4 metre lengths for you to tear/cut up to make your own 'tree-mendous' canvasses:

As I said in my last post it is also high time for a Giveaway.  So if you fancy winning the brand new stamp at the top of this post, plus the other 5 tree stamps on special offer this week, which you will find HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE, then please leave a happy comment at the end of this post, and one random lucky crafter will win all 6 tree themed stamps.

Thanks for joining me here,
Back soon,

Jean x

p.s. No trees were harmed during the writing of this blog post!!
