Creative Stamping 89 Sneak peek

Hello and here we are again, looking forward to sharing the next issue with you! Issue 89 goes on sale on Thursday 26th October and this time our focus is on stained glass – we think it’s a fantastic theme for Christmas!

We’re delighted to have teamed up with Daisy Mae Design, and we’re sharing some stunning artwork created by Clare Rowlands on the stamp set.

In addition to this and all the extra themed stamps, we have a fabulous stained glass sentiment die set which we know you will find very handy for your Christmas makes this year!

As usual the magazine is jam-packed with inspiration and ideas for your stamps and we just love how easy Vanessa makes it look with her beautiful framed Christmas robin card.

As well as all the cards using the stamps, we have technique features a-plenty, including stamped eclipse card ideas and galaxy backgrounds, plus of course step-by-step guides to talk you through!

A couple of cards that we couldn’t fit in the magazine are here for you.

Firstly let’s share this card which uses sentiment stamps as backgrounds, from the feature on page 63.

How to create

1 Use watercolour paints to colour a piece of white cardstock in green, leave to dry then trim into a panel to fit the card front.

2 Use the stamping platform to help position and stamp random words in the bottom section of the panel. Leave to dry and adhere to the card front. 

3 Stamp the woodgrain background onto scrap green watercoloured cardstock and trim into a strip. Adhere the strip to the card front as shown then add a die-cut green sentiment to finish.

Our other bonus card this month is this beauty, from Christine Smith, showing us how to create galaxy backgrounds on page 68.

How to create

1 Follow the step-by-step guide on page 70 of the magazine to create the galaxy background.

2 Trim the panel into a rectangle slightly smaller than the card blank, cover with an anti-static tool then heat-emboss the sentiments in white as shown.

3 Add silver snowflake confetti plus Nuvo Crystal Drops and use a white gel pen to draw faux stitching around the edge of the panel as shown.

4 Layer the panel onto a slightly larger piece of white cardstock and adhere to the card front to finish.

That’s it for extra cards this month. Look out for amazing offers and discounts in issue 89, including a fabulous 30% off Daisy Mae Design, plus competitions and giveaways galore!
