Craft Stamper Magazine Review

Hello to all you lovey Crafters.
Today's post is all about the Craft Stamper Magazine as I was so lucky to be asked to do a review of what I would call the best stamping magazine on the market.

Straight away from the front cover it looks captivating fresh and interesting, the magazine always comes with a free stamp and at the bottom of this post there is a little card I've made with this issue's freebie.

As soon as you open the magazine there is lots to inspire you, the contents page is well listed with clear headers to whats in the issue.
There are clear instructions along with a list of all the products used on how to make the projects that are shown in the magazine, which I think is a great help to all stampers.

The First Impressions section is super it shows a collection of new crafty items on the market and it also has several giveaways which of course is always great for us to extend our crafty stash for Free plus I also like the fact you can enter by post aswell as online. 

In my opinion there is a great mixture of inspiration and advertising as I feel inspirational photo's is what I want to see along with great products to use with my stamping.

Its a great magazine for new stampers as well as established stampers as it covers lots of different levels and themes from clean and simple to the extravagant altered art.

Its so nice to see projects showcased from customers of the magazine aswell as the projects from the professional crafters that inspire us on a daily basis.

The magazine cost £4.50 which is very reasonable as you get outstanding photography great inspiration all printed on quality paper. There is also a tantalising offer to subscribe to the magazine.

This really is a must have craft magazine bursting with inspiration from cover to cover.

Here is my clean and simple Card  made using August's Craft Stamper Freebie
Items used:
Picked Raspberry distress ink - Wow embossing powders Clear ultra Fine and Tickled Pink - White Card - Black Card and Black Gems.
To Make this is simple card:
Take a 5 x 5 blank white card, first mask off a section of the card then using a Versmark ink pad stamp the telephone stamp randomly across the masked section and use the clear embossing powder then heat it till it melts, next cover the masked area with the distress ink and then dry it with a heat gun, once dry flick some water onto the distress ink to take some on the ink out in places and dry again (this will create some texture). Stamp the telephone and emboss it in the tickled pink and cut it out and matt onto a black circle.
To finish add a sentiment and some gems.

Ttfn i'm off to get my new September issue of Craft Stamper Magazine
