Craft Stamper Feature

The January issue of Craft Stamper, due in shops on 4 December features the Keeper stamp plate by Artistic Outpost in the regular Stamping Contrasts article. The article shows how four different stamping artists use the stamps. Two of the artists, Paula Whittaker and Helen Chilton, are from the Happy Daze Design Team. Both Paula and Helen have made additional pieces using the plate for us to enjoy.
