Inspired by Craft Stamper Magazine

It was my mum's birthday last week and while flicking through a recent issue of Craft Stamper magazine I saw this project which I thought would be ideal for a present for her.

At first I decided to use stamps that I already owned, but then changed my mind and brought the ones that they used in the mazagine. The stamp set is from Inkadinkado - Beauty Steams from Here, I think that these are now some of my favourite stamps.

The project is a book made with envelopes and bound with a Bind-It-All.

I used matted some green card on to thick card sized 7" x 5" for the covers - I used the back of a writing pad. I then stamped the small flourish onto the card stock on three of the sides using a Lettuce Adirondack ink pad.

I then cut a piece of white card and with cut & dry foam blended butterscotch and cranberry Adirondack ink pads. Then using the cranberry ink stamped the small flourish over the top.

I then stamped the large flower on white card stock three times and coloured with Copics. Mounted these on to brown card stock and then on too the first three sides of the covers. The two inside covers have ribbon stuck behind to enable the book to be closed.

I then stamped the large flower onto six envelopes in cranberry. I then bound the book with my Bind-It-All.
The envelopes were filled with craft goodies.

I have then made a card to go with book.

I really enjoyed making this project and hope to make lots more.

Thanks for looking
