WINTER TREES, DAFFODILS AND MORE.....

I have some makes featuring winter trees, and daffodils, and more, this evening from the CI teamies.  Firstly the winter trees, using CI-209 and the A4 tree plate CI-450, with this gorgeous calendar from Sandra..


Another beauty follows, again by Sandra...


Then we have some pretty makes by new teamie Gerrina,
Some trees with a cool and funky background..


Some daffodils from CI-488, and a Winter Walkies CI-489 scene..



Daniele has also been busy with the beautiful daffodils...


And so has another new teamie Dora..


Dora has also added some hand drawn snowdrops to her card - how gorgeous!!

Again from Dora we have another card featuring Winter Walkies again..


Such lovely stamping and colouring!

Another tree themed make from Helen - a mixed media delight using CI-287, so very cool...


Finally a make by Willy on a completely different note, with a fabulous background, using CI-459 - totally delicious!..


Hope you've enjoyed the display tonight.  Have a fun Sunday everyone!

Back soon,

IT'S ABOUT BLOGGING TIME AGAIN, AND HERE WE HAVE A NEW GUEST ARTIST FOR FEBRUARY TOO....

Ah yes - if you are on the CI website mailing list you will know that we have now released the brand new stamps that appeared firstly on Hochanda the other week and you will find them all here, on super special offer right now!  I'm so pleased to say that you are all loving them, so thank you so much for all the orders and lovely comments.  Also thank you for the comments on my last blog post, we love reading them.  Enjoy stamping with the new stamps and let us see your makes!  Here are a few teamie makes as a reminder of what's on offer...


A beauty by Sandra using the new daffodils CI-488, followed by another Sandra beauty with the partner Fritillaries...


I've been experimenting with this one myself today.  I love those pretty little delicate spring flowers.

Here is a very colourful beauty by Helen featuring the same stamp....


Love how Helen has used embossing folders around the edges of her card - so effective.  Here is another Helen creation, totally different...


I particularly love this one by Helen in sepia Winter Walkies CI-489....


And now one from clever new teamie Dora in the Netherlands, who has used three of the new stamps on the one make....


We have also released some new A4 background paper sheets, based on the tree theme and also themed around the little tree background book we used to sell that you all liked so much. Here is a simple card using one of the sheets and one of the tree images we have in stock...


As the blog title tonight suggests we also have a guest appearance now from a brand new guest artist for the month of February.  Drum roll please - it's a big welcome to Kate Currie.  I believe it's the first time Kate has been a guest artist so please congratulate her on her beautiful makes featuring here below.  I will sort out a 'button' for your blog Kate in recognition of your achievements....






I think my absolute favourite has got to be Kate's seaside plaque.  As you know I love the seaside - it makes me happy, and so does Kate's make.  You can almost hear the waves ............

That's all for tonight folks, have a lovely Sunday tomorrow, wherever you are and whatever you do! Keep dry and warm!

Back soon,
Jean x
