Creative Stamping 45 hits the shelves tomorrow!

From brand-new stamp releases and tasty-looking cards to off-the-page projects, issue 45 has it all! Not only, have we provided the super-sweet Sprinkled With Love stamp set, but we’ve got a round-up of some the latest stamp releases – featuring designs from IndigoBlu, Hunkydory’s For the Love of Stamps and The Isobel Craft collection – this issue is not to be missed.

As usual, our DT came up trumps with a stunning selection of makes and projects to get you inspired – so much so, we couldn’t fit them all in the magazine!

First up, we’ve got Claire Newcombe’s striking heart-inspired make. Over on page 15 of the magazine, we challenged her to Take One Stamp and create a selection of cards using the heart stamp. She excelled and found four amazing ideas – so we’ve got her bonus make here for you.

4 Stamp the sentiment onto the card front and embellish the design with enamel accents to finish.

Next up, we’ve got a fabulous bonus idea from Christine Smith – she had one of the harder tasks – creating masculine makes using your free stamps. She continues to amaze us with her designs and inspiration – this card has jumped to the top of our must-make list!

1 Die-cut a large stitched rectangle from white cardstock, blend it with ink, stamp a background and affix it to the card front. Secure a length of ribbon along the spine of the card blank.

2 Stamp three jars, two labels and the sentiments as shown onto white cardstock. Colour the jars using alcohol markers to create marmalade and add detail using a black pen.

3 Adhere a label to one of the jars, for the second jar, hang the label off one side and trim off the excess. Use the excess for the final jar, and shade the labels to add extra dimension.

4 Curve the toppers using your hands, attach them to the card front using 3D foam pads. Stamp stars onto white cardstock, colour and cut them out before arranging them onto the card front.

5 Stamp the focal sentiment onto a white banner, outline it using a black pen, matt onto a paper banner and secure to the card front using 3D foam pads. Add a ribbon bow to finish.
