Oldies But Goodies

Hi there,

I've recently shared with you my most recent samples using the new CI stamps but I also have a couple of cards that I've made using some of their older stamps too.  Here's the first of them:


This is the lovely Hare stamp (CI-508)  by Maria Kitano.  It actually has a moon attatched to the stamp but as I wanted to create my own background, I cut that part off.  I started by stencilling a circle on the center of my card, then used a CI script stamp. (CI-436)  I have to say that this is one of my most used stamps as it's great for creating backgrounds.  Next, I stamped the flowers (CI-493) and the birds(CI-478) then added the hare to complete the scene.

My blogging buddy Sally has written a very thought provoking blog post today that’s well worth a read.  Here’s the link:

Enjoy the rest of your day and be happy xx

That is such a pretty CI hare Sandra and I love the limited palette with the black for the hare and pretty foliage and birds and also the little slopes, and the peachy tones which go so prettily for the masked scripted circle and the matted layer, and love the black mat and base card which really makes everything pop. A beautiful card. x

A lovely card Sandra and I love the colour tones.
I saw Sally's post on the CI blog. Leandra of PaperArtsy had the same problem and took the matter up directly with AliExpress and managed to ban them from copying her stamps. Maybe Jean could do something similar.
