Article in Craft Stamper Magazine

I'm really pleased to be able to say that I have had another article published in Craft Stamper Magazine. I have made 4 really simple cards using masking techniques. I really hope people like it.
here are a couple of little sneak peeks. The first uses a stamp from PaperArtsy

and the second uses a stamp from Crafty Individuals

In the article I mentioned that this technique could be used on different types of card. I have made this next card using a slightly textured card, I chose to use the distress inks Mustard Seed, Peeled paint and Faded Jeans.

I have also taken the technique one step further. Before removing the post-it notes, I stamped the script stamp from HP1004 (paperartsy), I then used the twig stamp from HP1008 for the foliage detail.

I also had a little card in the Idea Gallery to represent Happy Daze. I used Moon Girl from stampotique for a bling theme, using pink and silver, and here's a little peek.

The magazine is out today, I'd love to here what people thought


  1. Lovely, Joanne - must try to see that. I use masking a lot and used to teach it as a cheap way of getting more out of your stamps. Bet it's a fab article.

  2. I have to go hunt down a copy of the mag,,,like the card with the green and tree twigs.

  5. Beautiful job Joanne!! and Congratulations!!!!

  6. Hi Joanne - I am so chuffed that you have visited my blog and left a kind comment - I subscribe to the CS mag., and I am in awe of your projects (especially as we both live in Leeds - LOL)!! Your Silhouette Sunsets in the Oct. issue are stunning.
    Love, Sylvia xx

  7. the sneak peaks look lovely Joanne - mine's waiting to read when I get a moment's peace!

  8. As you already know Joanne, I loved the article & made my own versions for you. Great technique & very stylish. I've decided to cut my own templates from acrylic so I always have the shapes to hand.

  9. Well what can I say.... your cards are gorgeous and I loved them.
    I am now waiting for that Moon girl, ordered it today....can't wait to use it. Annette x

  10. Hi Joanne How did I miss these? they are really great. Congratulations it's lovely to see your work in print and well deserved here. I love this little lot, especially the twig with green and mustard, so gorgeous. I wanted that elegant twig stamp but wasn't sure about the rest of them on the plate, have you used yours much? :D xxx

  11. I thought your article was outstanding!
    Am definitely going to have a try at this style of card :-)
    So many times simple chic is just so much more than the sum of it parts - I think!
    You're the maths expert did I get it right? I struggled to get O level maths, and you did a maths degree just for fun - gulp :-0

    P.S. I heart word verification, I wouldn't wish spam on anyone :-)

  12. i loved this article when i read it in CS - and i've finally got around to having a go. would love to know what you think of it.


    i also like the way in other versions of this how you've overstamped the background with a script stamp. love it!
