This month we have plenty of seasonal mixed media wonderfulness to share with you, but before we give you a taste of what's inside, we want to explain a little about this 'Mixed Media' phrase we keep using...
At its most basic, mixed media simply means using more than one product on your creations. So, if you have created a card using inks, embossing and glitter, then it's mixed media (just like the image above)! At Craft Stamper, we love encouraging you to get experimental with your creating...no rules, no restrictions, play with lots of products and let your imagination create something unique!
We also welcome a new designer this month! Darcy Wilkinson is a super talented artist, and in this month's issue, she showcases her brand new Christmas stamps she created in partnership with PaperArtsy. A sneak peek of Darcy's featured project is shown above and below!
Following the Christmassy theme we also have Christmas lights, Christmas wreaths, an advent calendar from Jenny Marples...
And a beautiful snow enchantress from Kim Costello showcased in our Amazing Artistry feature. Here's a close up of the stunning work that will be sure to cast a magical spell on you...
We even have a whole herd of reindeer for you! The reindeer are the focus of our 3D Challenge, and were created from a Cardmaking Paradise template. The 3D Challenge even includes a link to download the reindeer template, so there are no excuses to get making and adding your own reindeer to our Craft Stamper herd!
If you love your inky techniques, make sure you check out Anna-Karin's Masterclass, all about glossy cardstock...she also has lots of wondeful tips and advice along with a stunning project or two!
We hope all your cards and gifts have been created already, and you now have time to relax and have some crafting time just for yourselves! (We also hope that Santa brings you lots of stash to play with!).
Happy crafting and don't forget to pick up a copy of our December issue (on sale on the 6th of November)!
