Each month I read it over and over until the pages end up all dog eared,lol...a wealth of information and a free stamp too!
So I was pleased when I saw that they are running a challenge each month.
Julys Challenge is to stamp somewhere on your project....so I made this....An Artist Trading Block and everything on it except for the top embellishments is from one set of stamps.
I glued my cube together and left it to dry for an hour, then I covered all 6 sides in black card, you can use any colour, as its just the base layer.
Once I finished doing that I cut 6 squares of white card and inked them up in bright colours....
Using the gorgeous Oxford Impressions set of sewing stamps, I created the backgrounds for all 6 sides, then glued them on to the block.
On some spare card that I had previously inked up, I stamped the elements, the dress form,bodice,etc.... ( dosen't that dressmaker look stern, it's a great photo stamp and is part of the set )) and then I adhered them to backgrounds on the block.
For the top of the cube,I added a tiny jar of beads, cotton reels,buttons and scissors, as well as 2 brass corners.
For the feet I just glued on 4 mini cotton reels.
So, if you like to stamp...why not pop over to Craft Stamper and enter their challenge this month, you can find it here...
