Magazine Freebies

Those who follow my blog will know I often can't resist buying magazines for their give aways but what I haven't said is that sometimes I come across them months later and realise I've not actually used them.  The stamps used here are a good example so I set about challenging myself to design a card around some of the stamps in this set.  I must go through my boxes and see if there any other stamp sets sitting in their unopened packets!!

Images - Free Nitwits stamp set from magazine cover coloured with Promarkers
Background - Digi Boss produced with Craft Artist
Border Strip - Crafter's Companion patchwork embossing folder
Edge of Border - Stampin' Up border punch
Layers - Spellbinder dies
Sentiment - Computer generated


  1. Val he is a real cutie and can see why you 'had' to take him hone with you....lovely card


  2. Lovely card Val, I'm well impressed with your digibossing! I haven't invested in these but it looks very effective. Such a cute image too:)

  3. know the feeling Val! Cute stamp though, can see why you were tempted

  4. Super card Val, using the free stamps and I love the digibossed background. When I fist looked at it I thought that it came from an embossing folder.

  5. Great card Val. I'm guilty as well.......things have a habit of getting hidden under mounds of other "stuff"! Love your digibossed background. I'm looking forward to playing with CA more now I've got my new computer (kept crashing on my old one!).
