Creative Stamping 81 sneak peek!

Hello! Here’s an early look at the next issue of Creative Stamping, on sale from Thursday 30th January. It’s an absolute stunner and such a creative issue, with heaps of ideas and inspiration using the exclusive A4 set featuring designs from Pinkfresh Studio.

We have Clean and simple ideas, cards for special occasions such as Mother’s Day, and a set of off-the-page-makes to show just how much you can do with your stamps! We also have techniques a-plenty: heat embossing, creating tiles (inches and twinchies!) and some fabulous no-line colouring ideas to try!

We also have fabulous new products and stamp sets to share with you, with a long-awaited fashionista showcase from Stamps by Chloe and Indigo Blu. We also introduce a new company to our pages, Daisy B Crafts, a family business with a lot to offer the stamping world!

We have an extra card to share from the IndigoBlu Design Team, created by Carolyn Lakin, showcasing their ‘faces’ stamps

How to create

1 Stamp the Venus image onto watercolour cardstock using Nocturne ink and trim to a square as shown. 

2 Paint the image with the rainbow coloured transparent acrylic paint.

3 Matt and layer the painted image onto black cardstock and trim to leave a narrow border. Adhere this to the card blank.

4 Die cut the sentiment from black cardstock and adhere as shown to the card front.

5 Finally draw a doodled border using with a black fine-line pen.

You’ll have to wait until the magazine is on sale to see all the amazing projects inside but if you’re anything like me and you thought you had enough flower stamps, think again! I absolutely LOVE this set and it’s my go-to for all my birthday cards to my friends this year! The Design Team has come up trumps and this Pinkfresh Studio set is so refreshingly creative, you’ll have hours of fun trying all the techniques in the magazine!

We can’t go without giving you a quick look at the next issue of Creative Stamping. Oh my goodness, it’s another stunner – we are heading for the Great Outdoors with this fabulous set featuring Hunkydory For The Love of Stamps
