More Craft Stamper Inspiration

Over the last few days I have been making a few cards, many of which have been inspired by articles in recent Craft Stamper magazines.

Both of these cards are based on a sample of a man's card. I used mesh tape (from the local hardware store) for the centre part of the cards. I covered it with embossing ink then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. The backgrounds were embossed using a Cuttlebug folder. The cogs were cut from dark silver/grey metallic card. The base cards used were both white.

The next card was a nice CAS card using distress inks to create a rectangular background then stamped with contrasting colours of Memento inks. The same inks were used to highlight the edges of the background area. The leaf stamps were from Gina K and Tanda.

The final card is one for which I used the cover stamp from the latest magazine. I just love Rennie-Mackintosh style designs and was very pleased to get this stamp! I used the stamp with London Fog Memento ink to stamp the background images and coloured the focal image with distress inks.
