Craft Stamper Christmas Card Inspiration featuring Stampotique

Do you read any craft magazines? Do you keep them or maybe pass them on or throw them out after a while? Well I loooove my magazines and they are taking up a fair bit of space but every so often I find myself going through them again and again. And everytime I find new inspiration. Whether it's a project using stamps that I didn't have before but own now or maybe it's just something that didn't interest me before but suddenly it does. So I found myself looking through a Craft Stamper issue from a year ago and found a christmas hanging Kate Crane made using Stampotique and Tim Holtz stamps. I took that idea and created my own little christmas card collection. I used a different character and sentiment but I re-created the same background following her steps. I love them for their vibrant colours and crazy "Uncle Buck" character, he don't look like he loves christmas too much, hehe.

I am entering this into the "Backgrounds" Challenge at The Artistic Stamper.


  1. Wonderful cards - love that humour and the stamps are wonderful but the backgrounds are absolutely yummy. My fave colours of this time of year x

  2. GORGEOUSNESS indeedily Ani... loving those bright colours... I read all my mags, have a mahoosive collection of them now and it is great to revisit old ones to get the old juices flowing again... thanks for joining in with the Artistic Stamper challenge hun x
