Craft stamper magazine sort out

I’m back delving into the box of Craft Stamper magazine stamps and sorting out which are for keeping and which are for leaving my stash… today it was this one with a collage type feel to it that I decided to play rainbows 🌈 with.

I stamped it in a row along a longer piece of cardstock so I could make a DL card from. I then stamped it again in black on a separate piece so I could colour in the creature (I think it’s a moth but I went colourful as though it was a butterfly!)

I then cut that out and mounted it onto black. I used black to also mount the background panel but I also used my scoreboard to edge it a little … it’s subtle but it’s there I promise!

I then decided to go a bit rainbow mad with the die cut letters and used a rainbow washi I’ve got to cover some card then die cut the letters on different parts and at different angles. I stacked them on other die cut letters to give them the dinension too.

Next I took some of the stamp from a happy celebrations for the other part of the sentiment and mounted that onto black.

I also added some shiny black stars as embellishments.

As much as I love this card I think it is unlikely I would use it again and have plenty of collage type stamps I could use instead, so it’s going into the get rid pile rather than the keep pile.

Happy crafting!

Biggest Wish, Craft Stamper magazine stamps

Craft stamper mag stamp sort

I have an a5 box which has a fair few Craft stamper magazine stamps in it …

… which I NEVER think to use so making it one of my things this year to go through and either get rid or put in a more accessible place so I think to use them and this card is the first card I’ve made using them.

And I love it!

I grabbed the Rennie MacIntosh style tile stamp and stamped it in black all over a piece of cardstock and then again on a separate piece which I added colour to. I then cut that out and decided to turn it into a tile by heat embossing clear over it twice so it becomes nice and glossy. I used to do this a lot but I forgot about it until now and suspect I made do this again more often as I LOVE it.

I added a black mat behind this tile and also the piece of cardstock which I trimmed down to be slimmer than the card front.

Next chose to use the Biggest Wish stamp onto the cream card in black which I then fussy cut and mounted onto black and fussy cut that too.

Finished off with some black card candi on the front to embellish.

Inside I added one of the off cuts of the card panel I had stamped and a small strip of black.

Really love how this came out and this made me immediately put this stamp into the keep pile as I can imagine using this again.

Happy crafting!
