Craft cards with delightfully decorated and ornate centrepieces, all with no die-cutting required with the Crafter’s Companion Collection of Aperture Stamps!

The Aperture Stamp Collection is perfect for crafting quick and easy cards. Simply grab some card blanks, choose your colouring medium and you’re good to go! So, if you’re a crafting beginner and haven’t invested in a die-cutting machine yet, but want to get started with cardmaking- these stamp sets are just perfect!

Each stamp set in this range includes a large shaped stamp to create create a cute aperture or frame effect, plus a whole host of sweet sentiments and pretty decorations. Let’s take a look at some finished cards for some amazing inspiration!

The sentiment says it all with this uplifting card – the sky is the limit with this fun and accessible stamping range! The Balloons in Flight set used here can be used to create a cute shaped frame to fill with motivational messages!

This colourful wreath of butterflies, crafted using the Ornate Butterflies set is a great way to show how colour can be used to great effect with the Aperture Stamp Collection!

For crystal clear impressions, use the Finesse range of inkpads from Spectrum Noir to stamp your images. Then you can colour them with a kaleidoscope of beautifully blendable tones and shades using Spectrum Noir markers! For bold swipes of colour Classique Markers are ideal, if you fancy dipping a toe into watercolour effects why not try out Aqua Markers, and for some glitz and glamour – the Sparkle Pens are packed with shimmer!

The stamps included in each set can be combined and arranged in any way you choose! With this fresh and fun card, elements from the Terrarium Set have been layered behind the main image, giving a full and flourishing effect!

With sets designed to fit perfectly onto 4″ x 6″ and 5″ x 7″ card bases, it really couldn’t be easier to craft your own cards with the Aperture Stamp Collection, like this simple but oh-so romantic card made with the Floral Heart set!

Each set comes with a range of sentiments, such as this botanical beauty of a thankyou card created using the Birds & Branches set. And, because everything in the Aperture Stamp Collection has been sized to work together – why not mix and match designs and sentiments to create the perfect card for any recipient or occasion!

This collection offers a great opportunity to experiment with matting and layering effect,. Take a look at this with the Wild Blooms set which features layers of cardstock with different coloured stamped flowers to create a beautiful border of blooms!
