Craft Stamper Magazine

Back again!  Ive not long followed this mag, it is AB FAB!  I never thought I would enjoy a stamping mag half as much as I did, I can't recommend it highly enough!  If you haven't already seen a copy, have a peep next time you are in a craft shop, you wont be disappointed!

This is my interpretation of the front cover on the August issue.  The actual stamp they used is presently winging it's way across the pond to me but I improvised the image with this lovely corset stamp.  It's a fold back A5 card and I versamarked the image on the inner piece using clear EP to give a subtle interest that can only be found if you look for it - but I haven't loaded a photo of it!  

I used:
inks: ink it up violet, turquoise and cranberry
image: Stampendous, beaded bodice
swirls: Hero Arts clear set
stash: clear EP, corner rounder, gel glitter adhesives

Well this is another attempt at distressing and I have to say that if there is one single thing that I can't abide - getting mucky fingers - I am surprisingly thoroughly enjoying myself!!  lol

Well it's a busy birthday weekend now so I wont be about for another wee while but Ive got both girls coming tomorrow morning and staying for the weekend and I can't wait!  It will start at the hairdressers, then off to see a venue set up for a wedding and then to finish off, back to try on the dress that she thinks 'is the one'!!  We all remember what that feels like don't we girls?!

Well I will wish one of my brothers - Bryan and one of my sisters - Jackya very happy day tomorrow.  What on earth was my Mum thinking: having three of us in 2 days!?!  

Thank you for popping by

Fabulous card Keryn, so girly but elegant and grown up too, I love it and the gorgeous colours you used with that wonderful stamp. Hope all the birthdays went well and the weekend was good with your girls. How lovely to be doing all the wedding preparations and yes, I remember that dress moment like it was yesterday, you never forget it, it's a beautiful time. Chris xx

Wow! This is stunning! Love the colours and the image. Thanks for the recommendation for the craft mag. I've been scouring through some and had thought about getting a sub for this one as we live abroad so your comment has confirmed it for me. Hope you're well
