Absolutely FAB-U-LOUS new stamps!


I'm officially in love with our latest stamp sets, they are bang on trend and scrummylicious to play with.  Firstly we have the ab fab hab set - Haberdashery, an A5 set (approx 15 x 10.5 cm)


then there's the luscious A4 set Lace Fragments (21 x 29 cm)


The picture at the top shows some of my 'Etsy Tags'.  I don't have an Etsy store, but if I did, I would send my hand made wares out into the world with cute little hand made tags on everything.

Here they are in close up:






Just wait til you see the gorgeous creations that the Design Team have come up with - they'll be sharing their creations here and on their own blogs over the next week or two, so stay tuned.

Meanwhile, I'm feeling generous, so I'll be picking two lucky winners from comments left on this post to receive one of the new sets.  Please feel free to mention the giveaway on your own blogs or Facebook.  I will pick winners some time next weekend (that's after Friday 27th April).

Good luck!

  3. This looks like an incredibly useful set of stamps. The ideas it generates would seem to be endless. A must have for all crafters I would say. I would love a set.

  6. Loving the first few samples - TFS. I'm debating about the Haberdashery plate - love the dress forms but I don't do needlework of any description, so unsure about the other bits n bobs LOL But the Lace Fragments are stunning; beautifully detailed

  10. These are absolutely superb - I've already fallen in love with those scissors. The lace set I have earmarked for KISS stamping which is something I've been promising myself to get stuck into. Those tags are gorgeous & I especially love the way you used white to highlight the top pair of scissors on that tag.
    Thanks for such exciting fodder for ideas.

  11. Hi Glenda ! Wow gorgeous designs ! I "need" them :) I have so many CB stamps on my wish list that I always have a difficult time deciding which to order, but these are at the top. I received another order from you recently and once again I'm very impressed with how quick they arrive in Canada. Thanks for the excitement this morning, Shirley

  14. These stamps really are 'ab fab' and as you say so on trend. Just love your little 'Etsy labels' too they would grace any hand crafted article.

  15. WOW I just love the lace fragments. But I have to say of all the haberdashery stamps that seem to be around this set has everything I want in one set which is a big plus, as it means I don't have to buy several sets to get the bits I want.

    As much as I like to win....... I never seem to be lucky so it will mean waiting a bit to buy them instead.

    Bang on trend. I love the way you have designed the lace stamps and particularly love the way some are open with undefined edges - could be very useful indeed.

  36. I was in chat when you first put these stamps up Glenda, since then I have had a good look and have come up with so many ideas of what I would like to do with them. The stamps sre so detailed and they are the best I have seen of the current trend.

  40. These are truly gorgeous and while I do love all of your stamps Glenda - the number I own tells you that - these are something else. I love the vintage style and as summer approaches and pressure at work reduces I can see myself using these with gorgeous papers like the latest prima collection that you also have. Yummy. Thanks for the chance to win them.

  42. Oh my: another 'must-have' stamp set from CB! The Lace set is so realistic, and will thus be so useful, and I just love the gorgeous scissors in the Sewing set.
    I'm still having such fun with the wonderful Romantic Steampunk, but I'm thinking these new ones will add to the fun too, so thank you Glenda!

  43. Once again your designs fit the bill for so many occasions. They are versatile and yummy. I particularly like the lace fragments as these can also be used to make rather good backgrounds. As always Glenda you come up with "must have" designs!

  66. I must say of all the haberdashery stamps (and there are a few) that are around right now, this set has everything I want in one go which is a big plus, it means I won't have to buy several sets to get all the elements I want.

    As much as I would love to win....... I never seem to be that lucky, but I live in hopes, so in the meantime I'll start saving inorder to buy them instead.

  69. Love the lace fragments. Great stamps to play with, just like the texture fragments. Love those too.

  70. The word 'stunning' is often overused but I don't think anyone would disagree that it definitely applies to both of these sets.
    I particularly love the 'wrought iron' dress form. It is a striking image just as it is but I am wondering how it would look if you inked up selected areas of the corset or stand and used it to produce repeat patterns, rosettes, borders etc.
    Is it just me or does anyone else think that the gorgeous scissors would make fabulous fans if repeat stamped and decoupaged?
    I'd better not start dreaming about ideas for the 'Lace Fragments' - otherwise you will think I am writing a book and will all nod off. Sweet dreams!

  81. I loved the lace set in particular because it has so many uses and would match the set of 'fragments' that I have just ordered. I love the haberdashery seta as my mother- in-law is a great quilter and has always sewn and I am making her a tissue box holder with that theme. Fantastic images and am particularly enamoured of the scissors. Particularly I am scissor challenged.
