Our 3D challenge this month is part of the spooky theme and our designers have really outdone themselves this time! The sheer level of variation you can get from the same substrates is amazing, from the wonderfully quirkyness of Clare Lloyd's vibrant green creation to the downright, spine chilling horror of the amazing art by Lesley Walters! There's truly something for everyone!
We also have more ‘new to Craft Stamper’ designers to introduce you to this month! We take a look at the work of some inspirational international artists, including the sweet owl canvas by Mona Pendleton from the USA and the wonderfully Autumnal project created by the talented Giovanna Zara from Australia!
I’m sure you won’t have missed the truly stunning cover art by Ana Kavcic too! Everyone in the office was simply stunned by this...beautiful work Ana!
We also are welcoming back Louise Crosbie in this issue. Queen of all things altered, Louise has outdone herself with the most amazing apothecary assemblage. No matter how many times you stare at this you will still find intricate new details that you missed first, second or even third time around!
We have a very special feature to share this month with you all. The entire crafting community was in a state of shock when we learned of the untimely death of Lily Chilvers. Just 21, Lily was such an amazing, talented and beautiful person, inside and out, and so we have created a tribute to Lily and her stunning Octopode Factory images.
There are also some very useful tutorials for you to have a go at in this issue! Sizzix Ink sheets, Mica, foil and how to colour a bunny, to name a few! We hope you enjoy our November issue! And don't forget to share your makes inspired by any of our issues with us via our Twitter @CraftStamperMag or Facebook page!
