Latest Magazine Projects

Morning everyone. Just thought I'd take the opportunity to let you know that I have some projects out at the moment in a couple of magazines.

The first is in the June issue of Craft Stamper using one of my oriental stamp sets called Japanese Dragonfly Dreams. The cards I created for this magazine were more manly than my usual style using the oriental dragonflies along with gold leaf. For this project I made my own background papers using some of the background stamps from this particular stamp sheet along with some Distress inkpads and a Starburst Stain dauber. All of which can be purchased from The Stamp Man.

The second one is in the current issue of Papercraft Inspirations (which I personally haven't seen yet!) using the sets of English Countryside Art Impression stamps. F0r anyone that hasn't come across the Art Impression range of stamps, they are the most truly interactive scenic stamps. I just LOVE these stamps. Unfortunately I don't get an awful lot of time now to play with them but they appeal to me so much because they allow you to create so many different scenes and layouts using the same stamp combination. They are great for those of us who like to be able to get the most out of our stamps. To see the range click here and this will take you to Sir Stampalots website.

Hello Kay
Hope you had a great day at "The Glitter Pot" yesterday,that all went well & you are not too tired from it.
"Thanks!" for the info' re: the 2 magazines.
I ocassionally buy "Papercraft Inspirations" but have never come across "Craft Stamper".
When you can spare a minute would you be so kind as to let me know where I can get/buy it?

Hello Rita. Regarding Craft Stamper, your local newsagents should be able to get it for you. If they don't have it on the shelf ask if they can order it for you. Baring that most stamp shops tend to sell Craft Stamper too and you could always go to an online stamping company such as The Stamp Man and ask them to send you one.

Hope this helps.

Great cards in the current 'Craft Stamper' (CS). Love the colour scheme.

I used to buy CS in W H Smiths, before I subscribed to it at one of the craft shows. I spend hours reading the articles and £££ buying yet more stamps! :-)

Hi Pauline,
I'm glad you liked the cards - it's not often that I do mens cards as I find them so difficult!!

That's the trouble with reading crafting magazines it makes us want things we didn't even know we wanted!
