We are pleased to introduce you to The Stampers’ Sampler! This rubber stamping and mixed-media publication is where it all began for Stampington & Company. The masthead publication, The Stampers’ Sampler is in line with its sister stamping publication, Take Ten, in that it includes rubber stamping, but it has a more artistic, mixed-media edge like Somerset Studio. If you would like to learn how to create small works of art that recipients will cherish for a lifetime, this is the best read to accomplish those skills.
The Stampers’ Sampler follows in the footsteps of the very best designers such as Tim Holtz, Dyan Reavely, Dina Wakley, Finnabair, and Wendy Vecchi by exploring, on a smaller scale, the artistry of combining rubber stamping with other mediums. If the motto for Take Ten is less is more, then the motto for The Stampers’ Sampler is more, more, more! In every issue, there is a fun Tempting Template such as a witch hat or bungalow home that gives artists the opportunity to create a card, wall hanging, or collage. Liberties are taken with paint, gesso, tissue paper, ephemera, inks, embellishments, patterned paper, and of course rubber stamps!
While this publication does have an arty and sophisticated taste, the selection of cards is meant to be practical and two of the bestselling installments are the holiday issue and the celebrations issue. With over 200 gorgeous projects to make for Christmas, weddings, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, birthdays, and just because, The Stampers’ Sampler aims to make the most of the paper-crafting experience to inspire and push artists to explore their creativity.
