WINNERS AND LOTS OF ADORABLE TEDDY MAKES....

Hi All,
Its time to give you Florence's five lucky 'winners' of the 'Face Value' Challenge for July, and here they are along with Flo's accompanying comments...

In no particular order:

Jools Robertson No 19...
http://joolsrobertson.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/crafty-individuals-faces-value-challenge.html
Loved the colours Jools used and how she stamped onto the acetate.  It gave the impression of rabbits in the moonlight. Not only is it a beautiful project but would also make a wonderful gift.


Jane Castle No 3...
http://castlekellycrafts.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/the-embroidery-bug.html
Love the combination of stamping and sewing.


Nikola No 6...
http://zuzanadulovic.blogspot.sk/2015/07/crafty-individuals-challenge.html
Loved the combination of stamps that Nikola used to create a unique card.  Especially the border of the town house which was a really clever idea.


Alison Rock emailed entry...
Loved the French shabby chic look that Alison created with the soft colors she used and the design of her card.


Pearshaped Chris No 9...
http://pearshapedcrafting.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/paris-journal-page-and-more.html
Chris created a fabulous mixed media page.  Loved how she combined the stamping with all of the different elements on her page.  It was also great to read Chris' post and the inspiration behind her project.


Thanks again to all who linked in their beauties, Florence certainly found it difficult to choose just five!  There will be another challenge in September, and meanwhile if the five above could email us at info@craftyindividuals.co.uk with their address and choice of stamp, we will post out asap.

For the second half of this post I am going to feature teddy makes.  We recently released a sooo cute new stamp of vintage teddy bears CI-440, Two Teds, and our teamies, bless them, have been beautifully busy and creative with this stamp.....

Joanna has made two cards - one for a girl and one for a boy - full of divine gorgeousness....



Joanna has also used the wording from another useful new stamp set CI-438.

Effie had a similar idea with the wording involved - a card and a present for a new baby girl, so pretty in pink...




Effie also used the doilies from CI-426.

Daniele has also made a beautiful card with the two teds....


..... plus flowers from CI-206.

And Florence has made three different glorious ted cards...




....which also feature the new XL background stamp CI-443 - in beautiful colour, plus CI-389 and CI-354, and CI-385.

Lynne has also made a fabulous card with the teds, for a friend, followed by detail images.....





Loving all of those,
Back soon with more great makes,

Jean x
