Hello All

Tonight I thought I would have a little focus on one of our newest Elements mini plates - 'Musical Notes' CI-366, which you can locate on our brand new website HERE.  If you have any music lovers in your life then this is the stamp for you, and two super talented ladies - Gio, and Sylvie - have both been making the most beautiful crafty projects with this set of delights.

Firstly a lovely card by Gio - so inventive! ..

Followed by a fabulous set of coasters in a box ..

Plus a lovely framed creation with the same stamp ..

Then Sylvie has gone all circular on us with her take on CI-366 - colourful and delicious!

With a little bit of CI-364, 'Pretty Design Elements' butterflies, going on in here too..

Thank you for sharing those ladies!

Talking about music - Isabelle Norris has used a couple of the bits of this musical stamp set, plus the Round Clock from Tando, and one of our clock face stamps CI-353 - 'Cog Workings' to make a cool and sophisticated, black and white, working clock ...

And now for the 'plus a little bit more'...

I have a few more 'Alice Palace' items waiting to be blogged.  Two colourful and clever cards by Helen Chilton (who incidentally has made the front cover of the very latest issue of Craft Stamper with an amazing decorated shopping bag using lots of our stamps, and TAP transfer paper - more on that in my next post) ..

The robin card definitely shows us that a robin is for life, not just for Christmas!!

Helen has incorporated additional CI stamps in her backgrounds very successfully, such as CI-365, CI-367 the new silhouette stamps and CI-209 'Winter Trees' mini plate.

And whilst I am on the subject of robins the image below fits rather nicely in at this point - an adorable little decorated box, sent over by the lovely Samantha Read ..

Finally to finish off for tonight Effie has decorated another two sheets in her little 'Alice' book ..

Stunning use of complimentary colours here!!

Well I ended up blogging far more images than I was going to tonight.  Hope you have enjoyed the display?!  Thanks to everyone featured, and to all of you who take the time to leave interesting and kind comments - you are all stars!

Bye for now,

Jean x

p.s.  If you are waiting patiently for details of our first Challenge of 2013, we decided to postpone it from January to February, to give us all a chance to get over Christmas.  Hope YOU will be able to join in soon. x

Lovey projects. Love the bright colours on Helen's cards and then love the muted colours on Effie's book. Same stamp, totally different styles. Fab

Easy to say but honestly, they are ALL stunning, innovative & inspiring. I say that as they are all so different & so all deserve this description.

My musical plate arrived just now, and the sheet music stamp, and the freebies - thank you very much Malcolm and Jean, I love surprises like that.
I am trying to work out if I should seperate the stamps on the musical plate, what I am seeing here makes me think yes, I hope so, about to go for it....

Cazzy said...

I forgot to say these creations are gorgeous, love the frame with piano!

Emma Woods said...

Wow wow wow wow wow, my favourite is the coaster holder and matching coasters as I want to do something similar for when we decorate our lounge this year.

All projects are amazing I only hope one day I can aspire to this level.
