IT'S MOSTLY CHRISTMAS, AND SOME CANDY ....

Hi All

If you subscribe to the Crafty Individuals newsletter you will have seen today that we have a great kit comprising of 7 festive stamps, 3 wood frames on easels and a mini image book, on a very special offer at the moment.  Here is the kit in its entirety...


...And these are the sort of piccies you can make with the kit...


The kit is on offer for £25 for 7 days, instead of the usual retail value of  the items of £40.05.  Of course you can also make cards with the stamps, such as this one...


The kit is available to buy on the CI Website now if you click Here.  We also have one of these kits available as blog candy this week.  Please leave a message at the end of this post if you would like to win one of the packs of goodies, and by Sunday we will be picking a winner.

I enjoyed making other Christmassy cards in a similar manner to the one above, but I used some different festive stamps too....



Its great fun combining a variety of different stamps on the one card.  I used CI-425 and more in the top card, and CI-327 and more in the second one.

Still on the theme of Christmas here is a card by Sylvie, again using CI-425....


Sylvie used a Gelli plate to make her lovely background (must get mine out again!).  The fabulous curly word is from CI-446.  More to come from Sylvie soon.

I also have a card by Coco, still on the festive theme.  Loving this too...




The CI stamp on the inside of this card is from our A4 Tree plate CI-450.  What a great sky Coco has painted!  More to come from Coco as well soon.

Finally I have a card on the Halloween theme, which will soon be with us.  This one is made by Laury...


Laury has used CI-360 to great effect on her card.

Don't forget to leave a comment if you would like to win the Kit featured at the top of the post!!

Bye for now,
Back soon,

Jean x

What a great cards....my favourite is the one Coco made with the beautiful tree stamp and the painted sky, but they all are so beautiful. I would love to win the candy, because I don't have any festive C.I. stamps yet and I would love to use them on my Christmas cards.... Thanks for this wonderful chance. Hugs, Marianne MW

Ooh what beautiful inspiration today! It's certainly starting to feel a lot like Christmas! I absolutely adore this awesome kit! I received the email about it today. If my finances would allow, I would definitely buy it but with my hubby and I both long term sick, just can't manage it! It's lovely to have the chance to win it though, thank you! And I have some other lovely CI stamps I can play with! Yay! xxx

A gorgeous collection of cards, and as for those cute frames - what a brilliant idea! I love them. Coco's card really blows me away - that sky! That stag's head! Absolutely wonderful!
I'd love to go into the hat for this super candy.
