Launching our latest stamps (by Lesley)

Well, I bet you thought I was just a figment of everyone's imagination! It is a severely long time since I posted anything on this blog, let alone actually write it from scratch, but as you may appreciate things have gotten a little hectic for us here at CB towers and I have left all the clever talented stuff to our brilliant Design Team.  In fact I feel a little bit of a fraud writing here today as I haven't even got a piece of my own completed artwork to show you. How bad am I?

Anyway, if you have been following our exploits on Hochanda you will know that last week saw us launching a stamp collection entitled A Taste of Russia.  This collection includes five new A6 unmounted rubber stamps and our very first set of masks and stencils. 

The A6 stamps are Silhouette Palaces, Large Crackle Background, Russian Floral Egg, Russian Exquisite Egg and Katya.

The masks are Silhouette Palaces 1 and 2 and then the Russian Spires Stencil.

All of this collection will be available to purchase as from tomorrow, 31st March.  Below are just a few examples from the Design Team's samples which appeared on the tv shows.  You will be able to see more of their inspiring work during April.

I have to say that once again Sue has come up with some brilliant and unusual designs whilst the DT girls really did us proud with their beautiful artwork.  And of course your support means the world to David and I, we realise just how lucky we are to be surrounded by our wonderful team and by you;   please keep sending us photos of your creations with our stamps because seeing what you do with them always amazes and delights us.

So that's me signing off, I'm sure I shall pop up again somewhere soon until then I shall hand the baton back to the girls who have some fabulous things in store for you.


  1. Wow. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the samples from this lovely set .xxx
