Do you have a favorite "go to" rubber stamp related magazine for tips or inspiration? Whether you are a faithful subscriber or not, there are a number of online sources where you can access free tips and projects ideas. It is an excellent way to "sample" before you commit or in this case, subscribe. Here are a few.
This is currently one of my favorite magazines. Published in Great Britain, Craft Stamper magazine covers a wide variety of stamping projects. I purchase copies at my local Barnes and Noble. The magazine's website has a couple of excellent resources for novice stampers. A glossary here provides descriptions of stamping terms, products, and techniques. An article here titled "Get Started with Stamping" has helpful information on what to buy and how-to instructions on creating your first stamp images.
Under the Downloads heading on the Paper Crafts website here you will find several card patterns and sentiments you can download and print out. There is even an embroidery stitch guide. Paper Crafts publish several special issues throughout the year highlighting card and gift projects. You can access a list and purchase them here.
Rubber Stamp Madness
Rubber Stamp Madness magazine has been around for ages and focuses exclusively on rubber stamping. Their website features a comprehensive list of stamping tips here for all levels of stampers.
As the name suggests, CardMaker magazine specifically features cards. Currently under the newsletter heading on the website's menu bar here, you will find a tutorial on dry embossing. CardMaker magazine is one of the few magazines to offer a digital subscription which not only allows you instant access to the current issue, but also access to the past two years of issues. You can view a sample issue here.
Love to hear of any magazine related resources you all know of. Please leave your suggestions under comments.
