MORE ON CHRISTMAS AND AN EXCITING WEEK TO COME....

I have more Christmas makes to share tonight, and next week will be even more fun as we have some new releases on the horizon - exciting times!

Here I have a lovely card by Daniele, with good old Santa on board, looking pretty in pink...


One of our older stamps on here, CI-136, plus a pink and glittery CI-368, and tags from CI-447.

Now a fun and colourful card by Coco, using the cheeky robin from a popular Alice Palace stamp CI-375..


Coco has added a little stamp from CI-420, top left, and a snowflake surround using CI-241.

More about Santa on this lovely tag from Flo....



Plus another similar styled tag featuring the little snow baby from CI-240...


Flo has used modelling paste and a starry stencil here too.

We have some new hanging frames on the website amongst the New Products Here, 
and this is the star shaped set and more Santas, followed by the flower set in its pre decorated state...



I embossed the acrylic paint coating with the help of CI-173 in the star set, and some WOW gold embossing powder - all very festive in greens and reds and gold!

Finally I have a couple of stylish cards by Laury...



....Featuring more tags from CI-447, and the 'Wishes' word from CI-408 in a lovely soft green and white.

If you are on the mailing list for Newsletters from us look out in your Inbox for mail from us this week coming, and get your new stamps on order whilst they are so new and such hot property!  I suspect they will come at a bargain price for a little while too.

We are still featuring heavily on The Craft Channel at the moment I am delighted to say - hope you have managed to watch some of the cool creations being made on there - always an interesting way to spend some me time.

Back soon,

CHRISTMAS IS ON THE CARDS.....

Christmas is on its way, and the shops and cafes seem to be playing Christmas music already (seems a little bit early to me though?)!!  We have some more festive makes tonight for you, made by the team, hopefully to inspire you to be creative this weekend too.  Starting with beautiful tags by clever Lynne, which have been published in the latest edition of Somerset Life.  If you haven't checked out the American magazines from Somerset Studio, you must, as you have a treat in store, they are great!....






Lynne's work is often to be found amongst the glorious pages of these magazines.  The tags here were created with the help of CI-446 and its curly words, gold powders, gems and fabric!  Look out for more of these unique hand drawn words by our great friend Linda Edwards, coming soon to a shop near you (and on our website too of course).

I also made a card with one of the words, plus CI-369.....


....And I have two very lovely festive cards by Daniele to show you as well....



The first features the curly Noel word again, and both other main images are from an elements plate CI-396. Stunning!

My final cards of this evening are by Sylvie, and have beautifully contemporary backgrounds...



The first features more curly words, plus our London city skyline CI-359, and the second has Santa, riding over the rooftops from CI-398.

More about Christmas coming soon.  Hope you are now feeling inspired to create yourself?!

WE HAVE A WINNER....

Yes we do have a blog candy winner, and yes I know I should have posted their name last weekend, however time has slipped away on me again!! I did have good intentions! Anyway the number 18 has been drawn by my son, and on counting down through post comments (54 in total - thank you everyone for joining in the fun) number 18 appears to be 'Cardgenie', who is another 'Jean' I think.  Anyway please email us Cardgenie, at info@craftyindividuals.co.uk, with your address, and we will send out your offer pack of goodies poste haste. Congratulations. Please share your makes with the stamps if possible.  We haven't taken the offer off the website yet, and you will still find it HERE, 
so get it quick if you can, as it's a great offer.

I will add a little bit of visual gorgeousness before I leave you tonight, with a rather lovely Christmas make from Coco...



Love that stamp Winter Garden CI-425.

Followed by an image kindly sent over by Dora Buist de Vries, made with a stamp she won in a previous candy draw...


Lovely - thanks for sharing Dora!

Sylvie is the maker of this pretty little thing....


...... using stamp CI-372. And I recently posted a similar card on Facebook made by Sylvie (with CI-373), and here it is again, this time modelled by her beautiful black cat - how adorable!....


My final make tonight is another card made with CI-372 (and CI-443), totally different to the one above, and this time by Helen...


Thanks everyone. Hope you all have a brilliant weekend!

Thanks for tuning in,

Back soon,

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,
