Stamperia News

It has been a while since our last post, and a lot has happened in the world since then. I hope you are all managing to stay safe without feeling too stir crazy. It's been a strange old time for us all. A lot of people have been discovering new passions, or rediscovering old ones, such as cooking and of course crafting.  So lets move onto crafting :) Stamperia in particular.  Here at Charmed Cards & Crafts we were one of the first companies to stock the products from Stamperia, and as their product ranges continue to grow, so does our love for them.

The new releases are imminent. As always when Stamperia do a major release they do it big time! They stagger it over a few months, so products will be released periodically.  For this reason we do not offer pre-orders on the new products, but rest assured that we will get plenty of stock in and let you know as soon as we have it.

There seven main collections being released, with each collection comprising 12x12 and 8x8 papers, chipboard (two new types), die-cuts, stamps, stencils, moulds:

June/July releases:

HORTENSIA (you can see some more of  the Hortensia collection in the top banner)

JulyAugust releases:



There are lots more releases from Stamperia, including new mixed media, I will do a post on the new resins etc when we get it in. See video presentations from them here. We will add to this area when we get more:

TUTORIALS & INFORMATION: Stamperia offer lots of tutorials on using their products. Check them out here

They also now offer more eLearning, right here at their E-Academy



Happy Crafting friends :)

Seaworld ATC's Using New Stamperia

It is always exciting when new paper lines are released, and none more so than from Stamperia.  One of the new paper lines - "Seaworld" - was created by the uber talented Antonis Tzandakis, who also designed Mechanical Fantasy and Azulejos for Stamperia.
 The Charmed Cards & Crafts monthly ATC swap was themed "Seaworld" and OF COURSE I just had to use the brand new papers:

 ATC's are based on a piece of cardstock measuring 2.5" x 3.5". I used a sand coloured piece in this size to emulate the sea floor,  then cut a fishnet from a fishnet die, and wrapped this around the base. 
The tags are from the Stamperia "Seaworld" 12x12 paper pack (we also have the pack in 8x8). I cut these out then glazed them with Stamperia Transparent Crackle Glaze. Once dry the paper had buckled so I adhered the tags onto dark brown cardstock, inked edges then put between heavy books for a couple of hours to ensure they were completely flat and stuck down. 
A large eyelet was inserted at the top of the tag and twine inserted. The tag was then mounted onto the fishnet base on foam tape, but using the wet Stamperia Mixed Media glue to ensure a strong hold. The bubbles and metal octopus were likewise adhere with Mixed Media glue. The chipboard sentiment is a Kaisercraft Flourish from the "Nautical" pack.

 You can see how the crackle glaze gave a 3-dimensional effect:

The papers you see below my ATC's are all from the paper pad - how amazing are they!!!  This pad definitely has the wow factor.


Here is a project created by Antonis Tzanadakis:


You can find the new Seaworld papers HERE. Soon we will have lots of coordinating products to go with them, such as stamps, stencils, rice papers and more.  Subscribe to our newsletter to get them as soon as they arrive.
