Our delicious December issue hits the shops on Friday!

The December issue of Craft Stamper Magazine hits the shops this Friday (2nd)!
Our fabulous subscribers may have their copies already, they are arriving as I type :)

This issue has a decidedly seasonal feel! Our talented designers have created some gorgeous stamped projects (as usual!), lots of snow, ice and wintery projects for you to feast your eyes upon.

Tracy Evans is sharing the most AMAZING tutorial with us on page 14! She used a salad spinner, of all things, to create the fabulous background for her Wintery Penguin pieces. Such a great effect!

For a bit more of a colourful twist on your Christmas cards, why not take inspiration from Florence Langley on page 60? The tutorial Flo has shared with us shows a wonderful layering technique, definitely one to try!

Our free images this month are available in digital format. We have a nice and seasonal variety of 4 images for you,  two of which are a Santa figure (who looks just a touch like Dumbledore perhaps?!) 

and a wonderful girl image by the talented Clare Lloyd. Clare creates her girls in rubber for PaperArtsy, so we are thrilled and honoured she has shared an exclusive digital design with us!

 All information about the digital images can be found on page 38.
Our Readers Gallery on page 54 is all about Christmas Ornaments. Congratulations to those chosen to feature, the projects are just stunning! This fabulous snow filled bauble was created by Jannet Blay:

We also have an wonderful stencilled project by Gio Zara..

Some fab ideas for Christmas themed shrines in our 3D Challenge, such as this wonderful creation by Shirley Bampton:

and an inspiring Masterclass featuring PanPastels by Riikka Kovasin in this issue!

Lots for you all to experiment with, and don’t forget, I would love to see what you create! Email me, or share on our Facebook page!

Have a wonderfully crafty month everyone!
