Craft Stamper Magazine

The new Craft Stamper Magazine is out today, and is worth getting for the free stamp alone! Jo Capper-Sandon has designed a gorgeous star stamp for Stampotique. It's a smaller version of the new release from Stampotique.
I was lucky enough to be asked to make samples for the magazine, and I couldn't stop. I ended up making too many to be shown in the magazine, so here's one that didn't make it in.
It's just a covered notebook with the words "my plans for stardom on the cover". To create the subtle stars in the background, I created a stencil using the stamp and sprayed through it with spray and sparkle.

hopefully some of the others that did't make it into the magazine will be shown on the Craft Stamper website, and I may sneak a few more onto my blog.

It's always great fun working with Jo, we've known each other such a long time (but only met once) and no one has inspired me more! I'm really pleased with how the samples look, I think our styles complement each other well, but there's something for every level (yes, mine are the easy ones! lol)

I also have my final part in the one layer card series. I feel a bit sad that it's finished, I've really enjoyed it. But don't worry, I have more articles coming up and I'm sure I'll manage to sneak a few more one layer cards in. This month I have looked at using stencils and masks to make clean and simple designs.


  1. you have just reminded me to buy mine, so off to town for me tomorrow........
