New issue - woop woop!

The November issue is coming very soon - on sale Friday 4th October!

Here's a peek at the cover, with lovely art by Sarah Engels-Greer. Neon is just HUGE right now and we actually have two articles featuring this trend. Embrace your eighties side (oh how well I remember mismatched neon socks...).

PLUS: We have a handful of Christmas projects to whet your appetite for next month's Christmas Special, a glittery gallery of bling-tastic cards, a rust Masterclass by the lovely Trish (this rocks) and a totally, utterly gorgeous hand stamped apron that Helen Chilton may not get back! And you've already had a sneeky peek at our Movember stamp too!

I love this issue and I hope you do too!

Please welcome.....

Please welcome a brand new Design Team member to Craft Stamper! I am delighted to have persuaded Anna-Karin Evaldsson to be a part of the Craft Stamper family. Anna-Karin is ridiculously talented and I have to say I've rarely seen a stamper so versatile. And she also scrapbooks pretty darn well too!!!

Here's just a small sample of her gorgeous work!

I hope you'll join me in welcoming Anna-Karin to the team. You can see her first project in the December issue, out on sale on 1st November and more of her fabulous work on her blog.

Fabulous free stamp!

Coming up with our next issue is this fantastic free stamp, which has been created by our very own graphic designer, Emily Hilton.

As I am sure you know, the Movember campaign for male cancer awareness has gathered pace over recent years. So our stamp this month is designed to help you make cards that recognise and support this good cause. It's also the perfect set for embracing the geek chic trend, for creating cards for men and teens,or just for making your designs a little bit quirky, like this fabulous make by Kim Costello.

Artwork by Kim Costello
If you want to take your designs further, this stamp co-ordinates with one of our sets of Squidgy Pins available here.

The November issue is on sale 4th October - don't miss it!
